I still come here for drinks, it they changed their menu in the last few months. They used to have delicious spinach dip, but the new is pretty bland. It's overpriced for very mediocre food. I'd skip this place and go elsewhere.

We have eaten here once and only would go back because there aren't a lot of other places to eat in Pikeville. Our server seemed annoyed that she had to wait on us and the food was ok but not great.

We always have a fun time with our friends on karaoke nights but would like to see them try a new karaoke guy, the one they have has started playing more music instead of letting people sing karaoke. He also sings himself so if you request a song he wants to sing you are SOL. The food is always great,... More

The Bank, is not what you would think it to be, it's actually a resturant, you cannot make a deposit here unless it's to buy food and drink, ha ha. I was actually kind of puzzled when I asked a local where would be a great place to have fun and he said "The Bank." But after he explained it... More

They have the best honey bbq boneless wings. However, our waitress was not very good and she failed to bring back my friends credit card, we had already left the restaurant and had to go back and get it.

For an afternoon or evening meal, I recommend their meatloaf. Like the way they've taken an old bank building and made such a nice restaurant with great food.

We thought the experience of dining in a converted bank would have been a great experience but turned out to be just so-so. The service was very slow both on the night we just had drinks and the night we met friends for dinner being a group of 10. The food was ok. The cheese stuffed burger was probably the... More
