We ordered: Appetizer; stack onion rings to share ~ pretty good, hot and fresh Meals; 1) brisket sandwich with mac & cheese ~ mac & cheese tasty... More

We ate there last night as it was next door to the Best Western hotel(also very good!). Our service was fast and friendly and the food tasty and reasonably priced. A nice, easy place to eat.

Padded bill, high prices, Sysco food, grease and lots of it, all tourists, niche staff. Very cute decor including a small jail cell for the kids. Huge bar, don't bring kids at night.

We were here on a Friday night and the bar was almost empty. It was nice to be able to talk. Except for the loud music. We asked to have it turned down and much too our surprise they did turn it down. We had excellent martinis. We also ordered the sampler plate, $18.95. It came with 4 hot wings... More

With a group of 18, waitress drops my credit card through the outside deck cracks, leaves us hanging. Had to use vice grips from my Harley to remove deck board to retrieve my card as I was traveling. Poor management, low quality food. Will not return.

This was our second time eating here and though the servers were polite and attentive, the food wasn't as good as the last time. I had short ribs, which were very tender and meaty, but my husband's baby back ribs were not as meaty or tender. The beans were so salty I couldn't eat them. I didn't remember them bending... More

Slow night on a Monday. Food was very good and does pop refills came quickly. Onion rings cooked well not greasy Get the pork BBQ as the beef ribs weren't what I was looking for. Large portions.
