My wife and I saw this restaurant as we passed through the area heading back to Shelbybille. It look interesting so we took another couple back with us to check it out. We sat outside on the patio enjoying the good weather and conversation on a Saturday night. We all ordered salads and of course burgers. All I can say is that everything was amazing! The side salad portions were fully adequate with lots of fixings. When the burgers came, none of us were sure our mouths were large enough to wrap around them for a bite. We all moaned and groaned with pleasure as we devoured them one by one. I enjoyed a Shotgun Wedding beer with mine making it go down very well.

We will be back to try more!

Food was very good. Service was almost nonexistent. We were greeted by someone not our server, who brought our drinks. Waited 10 minutes to order. part of our order was dropped and had to wait on that. Refills were not timely. finally, at time of payment, we had to flag down another server to help get our payment processed.

I had been before and found it underwhelming, but my girlfriend wanted to try it as she had never been before. While my server was very polite he either wasn't listening well enough or the kitchen prepared the wrong dish as she ordered the impossible burger and was given a regular beef patty. I also have problems with the fact that fries are an extra charge as most restaurants serve a side with entrees. While the food was good none of it was worth the price that was paid. But all things considered I would still be willing to give it another try due to the most good service.

The burgers were delicious, the service was excellent but the wind pours were stingy! I mean for eight dollars and not even a good wine, they give you about 5 ounces. Suggins has a far better pour than that.

Thank you for your review Lloyd! We are always looking for feedback, so we appreciate you letting us know how much you enjoyed the burgers and service! Thank you for letting us know about your wine pour. Our standard is 6 oz, although we are working on getting a 9 oz pour on the menu as well! We work to keep our pricing fair and our pours accurate so our guests get good value. I will follow up with our bartenders to make sure we are pouring correctly.
