I typically LOVE the food on the Big Cedar Campus, but tonight I got a BLT burger and it was so dry, I actually threw it out. The coke even tastes bad...I think they may of been having a bad night or something.

We went on a couples trip and to unwind we went to the Buzzard Bar. It has a cozy atmosphere and the waitress was helpful, super fun, and kind. Great service and delicious drinks.

Just downstairs from Devil's Pool, you'll find a warm welcome at Buzzard Bar. There's comfortable seating indoors amid antique appointments and the usual collection of stuffed, furred and feathered friends, or you may choose an outdoor setting on our patio or overlooking the pool. Every evening, we'll feature local entertainers including our very own Singin’ Cowboy playing and singing all your favorites. Buzzard Bar is a non-smoking establishment.
