Although there were only five other guests in the restaurant for dinner on a Thursday evening, our food was excellent. Our group had the caesar salad, pasta and shrimp, chicken sandwich and grouper. The Caesar salads, pasta and shrimp and grouper were outstanding. Service was okay. Definitely worth a trip to this restaurant for dinner. Hope they stay in business.

just stopped in for a drink, and had a blast. Bartender set up his play list for us to sing. The mine shaft cave in and safety vest was very entertaining. When the staff picked up their instruments and sang, it was very nice.

Decent food. Second visit on this trip, but we had been there before. Two couples for the "all you can eat rib night". Good ribs and fine sides. At sunset, chickens climb up to roost on the branches for the night. A sight to see!

The highlight of the visit came when we got to don our mineshaft apparel and they lowered the bucket from the ceiling that contained the ingredients to mix the World Famous Mine Shaft Cave In... What a fruity drink with an oh so smooth texture that sneaks up on you in the most wonderful way.... Love "All Out and Jinx"... More

We visited here for dinner and wasn't pleased at all. First off there are 2 young females as waitress with no customer service skills, we sat there for a while before one of them came by to take our order, on top of that about 20 mins after the other one bought out the food. We then felt kind of... More

We arrived there at 5:30 one evening and wanted to order dinner and watch the sunset but were informed the chef wasn't in! We waited for about 20 minutes and he never showed up so we went elsewhere. I have to say the Rochelle was very gracious about the situation and wanted to help but her hands were tied. Later... More
