We stopped here as it was dog friendly. Such a great stop. Loved the cover patio and they brought the dogs iced water which they loved. Fried pickles were fair but the hillbilly philly was delicious! Will go back there again. Even without the dogs!

Dinner was ok. Potato salad was the highlight. Live musician was great! But it was extremely loud inside and I was overwhelmed by the loud patrons. Felt like I was in a bar not a restaurant.

Quick service, awesome bartender and amazing food. Their burgers were to die for, we didn’t leave a bite left. The prices were reasonable and everyone was friendly. We had an amazing time

First time here we waited for 20 min and no one came to even ask for a drink order. Second time there was horrible. Pickle chips tasted like they were soaked in salt. Burger had a half inch of mustard on it. Water and tea...More
