This is a diamond in the rough. During the drive we were concerned, "We couldn't get there from here!" The parking lot was full. We weren't sure where to go in. Surprise! It was a NC country experience. We had wonderfully prepared food. The musical...More

Love the food and casual atmosphere! Music was ok. The only negative was the children running around and up and down the bleachers, very loud!! Be prepared to pay extra for your drinks and a dessert.

The food is good, but the full experience is what keeps us going back. Live bluegrass music, line dancing and clogging, and all you can eat barbecue down an old dirt road. If you can resist the urge to turn around while yelling "paddle faster"...More

While you have to take several back roads to get to this gem, it is worth it for the entertainment. While it opens at 5, the fun doesn't start until 7. A super place for a large group of friends or family. Buffet style only....More

Stopped in for dinner with my dad, this place is a drive out there but worth it. Looks like a huge country cabin. Cash only all you can eat BBQ for $12 ish per person and its tasty. An interesting experience with great food.

I've been to this festival several times. it is a fun event for locals, but I don't know about making a 2 hour drive to attend. Personally, I'd be disappointed if I drove that far.
