We met the owner at his farm and decided to try his restaurant. Awesome place, super cool ceiling fan setup, and incredible food. We had tacos, they were fantastic and I wish I had ordered more.. go try this place.

We waited for our table at 10 acres Kitchen to open up and had drinks at the oval bar. Quite a great scene with great service. It would have helped if we could have run a tab to carry over to our dinner reservations.

This pub doesn’t inform larger groups before they order that there is a 18-19% gratuity already charged on each bill. Service was horrible, often left without being asked for a new drink. Food was mediocre, but definitely not worth the price charged. Uncomfortable metal high...More
