The burgers are huge and very flavorful. The sweet potato fries are good but the chips weren’t very crisp. We did have to send one burger back to be redone because it was really undercooked, ordered medium well and it came out very rare. The...More

A very charming place in the center of Wilkesboro. Food and beer is good and somis the service. And I love the historical photos on the walls. Often live music.

Service was superb. Very friendly and sweet waitress. Didn't have my first selection for appetizer so they comped my second choice. Salad could use some croutons. Food was average.

If you have not been here lately try it again. Food was very good and the portions were huge. A little pricey but you get so much. They seem to be transitioning to a restaurant with bar atmosphere at night. Glad I went back

Can't say enough about how great it was to eat here. Tiffany was awesome and understood our needs for food allergies incredibly well since she deals with many of the same. It was great to eat breaded wings out (GF flour mix used for breading)....More

We had lunch after touring the museum. Service is outstanding, we had a Reuben with fries and potato salad (2 plates). Very good. The desserts are homemade. We will return.
