Lots of people telling me how good the burgers are here. The WORST burger I have ever had. Tasteless and Dry! Canned mushrooms. Can't believe they are fresh made since they were perfect looking. The lettuce (wilted)tomato(thin and yellow) and onion(two single rings) were not even pleasant to look at let alone eat. What a disappointment.My friend had a burger... More

This restaurant/bar is great. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. We love their burgers and Mahi Mahi appetizer! It is very clean and well maintained, including the restrooms. The staff is efficient and Friendly. The entertainment is super with good bands and line dancing. I would recommend it to everyone!

THE WORST PLACE EVER!! I called ahead and asked if children were ok and was told they were fine. We got there around 8pm and were first told we had to pay a $5/person cover charge and then told we didnt. Ok...so we were then told to sit wherever. I immediately loved the atmosphere...people line dancing and seeming to have... More

We went to a special event they were having. Had a great meal before show. Waitress was busy but very attentive. Entertainment was great. They always have something going on. Must visit . We don't drink, but that's not a problem. We will be back soon.

We were out of towners just looking for a cool place for a drink or two, arrived and ordered some nachos and a mixed drink. Before I knew it we were trying to line dance, so much fun. I wish we would have came earlier in the evening. Try it out!

The atmosphere was great. We went in expecting average and got excellence. The food was delicious. Service was great. There was a party going on and we were invited to join in the dancing. We ate our meal and then stayed for another hour dancing and learning new line dances. Even though it is definitely a local favorite tourists were... More
