We ordered the burgers and honestly they weren't very good. Very loud in there with many games playing on many TV's. Good if your into sports. Couldn't get refill on our cokes, server wasn't very attentive. We won't go back.

The surface there's been pretty solid the drinks are good and priced okay but the food sucks but if you want to go somewhere to watch the game that's relatively inexpensive this is a good place to go.

We went to Poor Man's in the early evening on Saturday night. Nothing fancy but good service. My wife had a great hamburger. I had a Chuy's chicken sandwich which was okay. The seasoned fries were excellent. Waitress did a great job. I would certainly go back. Nothing fancy but good food.

We came for the fried oysters but were told (yet again) they were all out. We stayed anyway and later regretted it. Portion sizes were tiny. An 8" chicken tortilla salad, one razor-thin chicken quesadilla and one iced tea totaled $31 with tip. We left hungry (and trust me, we are NOT big people) and headed straight for the McDonald's...

Nothing fancy, good burgers, shrimp or fish baskets, great season fries. Fast food on steroids! Quick, friendly service, full bar, nice view of the ski basin. Just plain fun!

This a great place to watch football games. Multiple tv's with many games on. The only thing that was annoying is so many people smoking. The appetizers are good but no draft beer. Selection of beer is limited to cans and bottles with about 12 choices.

Drinks are reasonably priced and lots of TV's for viewing multiple sports. The food is pretty good too.

The stench of cigarette smoke will keep us from returning, but the food is good and the view of the water is nice. Hopefully one day soon they'll join the rest of civilized society and send the smokers to the parking lot.

i'm not one to be real adventuresome unless someone suggests a new place. i'm glad i went. the cheeseburger was really good, the other party had the grilled chicken sandwich. all done nicely and the waitstaff are really nice. it's a relaxed place to have a cold one or two and have a simple meal.
