We arrived about 7:30pm. Live music was playing but a little loud to talk. Server was excelllent. Food was so good. My son said his sirloin was as good as Ruth's Chris. We also had great catfish, fried pickles and BBQ pulled pork.

Beautiful view, and waitstaff was amazing. However: food was terrible and not worth the prices charged. Extremely disappointed in this restaurant. Will not be back.

Love the smoked pork and chicken. Cold draft beer. Prices are high, but I guess it's all about the location. Would be much better if beer prices were a bit less. Get a pitcher - saves you alittle.
