    Great addition to Roan Mountain area! Not too far away from other cities ~ and nice for locals. Surprisingly Great ambiance and great dishes to choose from at a very reasonable price! (Check website) My husband loved the Prime Rib, and I thoroughly enjoyed my Grilled Chicken Fettuccine Americano! A good selection of great little sides available as well~ neighboring table said the seafood pasta special was awesome! Well worth going! We will go again and take friends! (Beer, but no liquor yet, but an ice cold Stella or two topped it off well with us!)

    We would return. The rolls were fantastic as was most of the meal. I would not order prime rib again as all three were over cooked. The peanut butter pie was not my favorite. We still don't understand the alcohol situation. Overall for the area this is a good place.

    A $10 corkage fee per bottle of wine is outrageous especially since they have no liquor license. That is reason we probably will not go there again.

    Server was great. Place was overwhelmed. Out of bread, baked potatoes and Hawaiian steak at 7:15. $38 filets undercooked. NY strip that was supposed to be rare was medium well. Had my daughter’s boyfriend with us who is an excellent chef and has been the head chef at several fin dining restaurants in Abingdon and Bristol. $250 with the gratuity for four of us and we brought our own wine. One and done.

    They did not have steaks available and the suppose 14 oz ribeye was maybe 7 oz at best and was cold when they served it,we all ordered baked potato and when we got our food they said they ran out so they gave mashed potatoes .Myself and my brother did not eat as the steaks were so poorly prepared.But they do have good sweet tea.A host lady asked was the wait worth it and I said no the food was horrible and she said well it must not have been too bad it’s all gone and I replied no I sent the steak back as it was cold and they tried to heat it in microwave and I never got any of my meal other than steak .Don’t waste your money as the news article was paid to be done to build the business from my opinion

    This was our first time and drove from our home near Burnsville to give it a try. We had heard the restaurant got ‘ best steakhouse in the tri-city area,’ and thought we’d try it. The restaurant was packed and justifiably so. In spite of how busy it was, the food, service and Hostess were just FABULOUS! Hats off to the kitchen, which never lost its stride, in spite of how busy it was. Wait staff was super too. Can’t wait to go back! Try it, you won’t be disappointed!

    The salad, rolls and side dishes were very good. However, the steak that they are famous for came to our table burnt. Both my husband and I ordered the steak and both were burnt so that you tasted the charcoal instead of the Hawaiian flavoring. May or may not go again.

    We had reservations and were seated within 5 min. The wait staff were always pleasant and efficient. The food was properly prepared, but the filet was center cut and thick, next time I would ask to have it butterflied. The food had a great flavor and pleasantly presented. Will definitely return.

    We were 10 minutes late on reservation and still got seated promptly. Plenty of friendly staff on hand. Service very attentive. Only beer, no wine, for adult drinks. You can bring your wine for a $10 cork fee. Bill was few dollars less if you pay cash. Two prime rib dinners with 2 sides, two beers, 22% voluntary gratuity and we were out of there for under $100.
