We went there for a late dinner, 10:00pm. The service was TERRIBLE!!! After 20 minutes of sitting and waiting, we finally were able to ask a passing waiter if there was there anyone working our table. We had to wait another 10 minutes for our server to show up. The waitstaff was spending an inordinate amount of time "visiting" with each other instead of seeing to their tables. The quality of the food was very average. Not a place I will visit again!

Nine of us for dinner and we were seated right away. Service was great. Food was delish. One in our group has significant food allergies and they were able to accommodate her needs and she loved her dinner. Very hospitable and patient with our group. We enjoyed it immensely and will come back if ever around this way again. Thanks!

Nice little out of the way bar, have some selections of draft and bottle or can beers. Beer is cold. Mixed drinks offered. Food selections limited.

As a Pikeville native who now returns for visits, I am always amazed at the changes in my hometown. I remember when this building was actually a bank.

The architecture of the building actually works very well as a restaurant and I love seeing a non-chain restaurant doing well. Everything was very clean and inviting. Based on the hours they are open, it appears as if they are also a late-night bar. They did have a decent beer selection. However, when we visited, the atmosphere was as family-friendly as an Applebee's-type restaurant.

The food was solid and the service was superb. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about the food. With their large serving sizes, an appetizer worked well for lunch and still left room for dessert.

The highlight of the meal was the bread pudding. It was absolutely divine and, while it is certainly large enough to share, you may want to keep it all for yourself!

This was my 3rd attempt to have a decent, and timely-lunch at this establishment. Once again-disappointment. The food, every time, has been really good. Wait time is horrible. do NOT go here for lunch unless you call it in and pick it up
