Will never go back. Called to complain twice to manager and she never even called me back. Service slow and food not prepared right.

We were looking to try something new close to home for a date night. Boy, were we pleasantly surprised! Plenty of menu choices and everything we ordered was excellent! Certainly not your typical "bar food". The service was excellent and a bonus was the live music. Only downside was smoking allowed inside. We will definitely be back but probably in... More

It really is, but the atmosphere is not for everyone. Raw, lots of locals, and boaters. You can smoke inside. The restroom facilities are taboo. The service is genuinely friendly and helpful. Fun place, with music on weekends. And the food is some of the best in the area.

I grew up in a small town (no, I'm not John Mellancamp). Haha. But this place feels like a place like that. Good food, fine people, great entertainment and lots of friendly faces :). In fact, I would love to work here.....just might someday. Off the main road on the way to Lake Lanier, so it has a more secluded... More

We usually go here during the summer months and sit outside. You can get here by boat as well. The food here is good, I've never had bad food or service. They have live bands and it gets kinda crazy sometimes. Beer is always ice cold and good mixed drinks. I've seen kids and families here, but know in advance... More
