We've eaten here each time in the area and are never let down. Food is AWESOME and service is good. A touch on the pricey side but you get what you pay for.

We were really excited about visiting this place, planned our day around it really. When we arrived, there was one over worked waitress working. There was no music, it was like sitting in a tomb. Because the waitress was alone, it took over 20 minutes to just get a beer and an app. We decided to leave after that and... More

4 of us went for dinner on Saturday night prior to the last day of rafting. It was bridge day so it was busy and we had to wait about a half an hour for a table. All of the employees were super nice. Had the ribs & chicken combo and the ribs were amazing (love their sauce) but the... More

Prepare to be spoiled. The food is fresh and comes out hot. Friendly wait staff and fun atmosphere make this a must if you're visiting the area.

I received an iceberg salad for $10.99. With steak. There was about six slices of thin, over cooked steak. Not impressed. Not coming back. The service was ok.

I would have driven right past this place but my son said it was good, so ok we'll give it a try. Bottom line - excellent in every way. The service was great, the food outstanding, the banana margarita excellent. Peanut shells on the floor and you can sign a dollar bill and put it on the wall. A fun... More

We have been spending several days in Fayetteville taking landscape pictures. We have already hit multiple "local" establishments. This was one on our list that was also recommended by a tour guide. I was certain that this would be a great eatery. I was very disappointed. The wait staff were very friendly but the food subpar. We ordered the deep... More

My ribeye was terrible and the ribs were just alright. Nothing special about this place, in my opinion. Did not live up to the hype.

I have gave this place 2 stars because I think it's over priced and the food was mediocre. Hotel staff recommended this restaurant to us. We ordered the Cajun Salmon dinner and the BBQ chicken and pork dinner. The Salmon was good but the BBQ chicken did not have a good texture and the sauce was just OK. The BBQ... More
