A wonderful, well stocked shop. Every kind of spirit you could need and the only place in town where you can get them. Wonderful staff who're well informed and extra friendly, a proprietor who is a superb combination of smart and funny and a beautifully laid out store. Perfect. Come here and make yourself happy.

Terrific selection of wine, cheese, meats, spices, unusual beverage selection, just all kinds of stuff. We discovered this is a famous store; in business for over 50 years.

Second or third generation operation of quality meat products and gourmet items. More a luncheonette than a restaurant. But it also has a great selection of liquor and is not a state run operation! Great community participants as well.

Tourist trap for over priced picnic items. This is a wanna be meat market catering to tourists. You can find many of the same things for less at the local food store! Buyer beware how you spend your money!!!!

Company has been here for many years, smoked meat products made in house including hams, beef products, and jerky. Extensive wine selection, possibly the best in Jackson County. Family owned and operated.

Didn't eat here but enjoyed browsing the store. Good jerky (tried all the samples), good jams, wine selection. A bit pricey but good stop for local food gifts for the folks back home.

We loved the smoked game foods and their jerky selection. They also have the very best sweet mustard. Samples available. Friendly with patrons. Nice small business that keeps the customer foremost. Big internet service also. Will return and return-!

Gary West Meats has been an institution in Jacksonville since gold was first discovered...I think. This is the gourmet jerky you have always heard of but not been able to find until now. Beef, Buffalo, Elk jerky are all good. I like to take a piece and heat it in the microwave for about 10 seconds and eat it. This... More
