    Usually love or hear, the last two visits, not at all. Service was crazy slow. Took about a half hour to get the first drink. Food took an hour 15 minutes to get, and was just ok this time. The band was SO loud that you couldn’t talk to the person next to you, the waitress even struggled to hear you to take you left order. They even said it was insanely loud. We moved to three different tables to try to get away from it. Again, always loved it hear, but as time goes on and they got busier, everything has dropped down a bit. Honestly, probably won’t go back anytime soon.

    Disappointed in the meatloaf. Dry with hard inedible skin, not much, if any, flavor. Fish (fish and chips) fresh and very tasty although price was a little high. Cold slaw not up to standard. Should have been sweeter and more finely chopped. Would unlikely recommend to a friend

    We had reservations and specifically mentioned it was for a birthday. We were seated quickly but waited 15 minutes before anyone asked us for a drink order. We also ordered an appetizer at the time drinks were ordered. Our appetizer came out before we received our drinks. The steamed clams were overly salty. Fries tasted like they were a day old and chewy. Brisket cheesesteak barely had cheese. Our server was nice but nonexistent and not attentive. Our main dishes were just okay and nothing great. I would not recommend to anyone. The ambiance is nice but nothing to draw in people for a subpar experience. Price was way higher than it should have been for what we received and the poor service.

    A rustic but modern mix restaurant with a bar, booths, high tops, and outdoor picnic table dining on the deck. Great view of the golf course. Our meals were promptly served and our server took great care of us. She was fantastic-friendly, checked in with us just the right amount of times, and took time to make conversation with us. My son loved her! He even signed his placemat coloring sheet and gave it to her. Lol. He also said the fries were his favorite ever and this child has had a lot of fries! The kids menu was a definite plus. Very down to earth atmosphere with nicely presented and prepared apps and meals. Very nice staff. We had an enjoyable time and will be back. Just a heads up-the kitchen closes from 3:30 to 4 to switch over from brunch to dinner but you can still enjoy a drink and look over the menu. Enjoy!

    My mom had asked to go for a special mother’s day brunch, so I thought this would be a lovely place to eat at. Everything about this experience was horrific. The host was clueless. He forgot to seat us, then seated people who came in 10 minutes after us. When asked about that, he was very rude and snarky. While I do understand it was busy and hectic, he was very rude. He then proceeded to seat other people at OUR table when we went to get our food. It also took 15 minutes for a waitress to come over just to get us silverware since we already had our food and could bot eat it without it. The food was just as bad. Everything was cold, and nothing seemed fresh. My prime rib was red and raw. It was bleeding everywhere. A cow in the fields was more dead than that cut of meat. My mom’s bled all over her pancakes that were also ice cold. The consistency of the food was pathetic for a place that claims to serve “above average” cuisine. We did not know where to find the water, and when we asked the host pointed out in a rude manner that the water was located in vodka bottles. How were we supposed to know that ? The coffee was cold, and at points there were not even any cups at the bar area. The people who organized the buffet should be ashamed of themselves. Please get your act together.

    We love Backwoods but were disappointed with the Mothers Day Bruch. From being Seated downstairs without notice to having to carry our own coffee water and plates up and down the steps as well as the ice cold pasta. The prime rib however was perfect! No deserts were available-on mothers day of all days!

    My husband and I ordered $34 filet mignon and it was horrible. I ordered medium and it was cooked well done. It had no seasoning and it was very, very bland. The green beans were soo overcooked they were shriveled. The cauliflower was burnt on the outside but very hard. The mashed potatoes were good and the only tasty part of our meal. Also, they put the silverware at the table in dirty bins for you to take for yourself. They were dirty. That’s not sanitary; especially with COVID going around. Lastly, I ordered a dirty martini and not only was the martini dirty, but so was the glass. It was also the smallest martini I’ve ever seen. We will not return.

    It was obvious that they were under staffed which is understandable but the server was exceptionally rude…she went out of her way to avoid anyone who would actually need anything like drink refills, checking in on our meals or asking if we wanted dessert and then we sat waiting 35 minutes for our check…then she “misplaced “ our credit card and blamed us for it!!! Meal: wings bites and ribs were great but fried chicken was overdone…which may have just been an off night since we’ve heard so much about them being great!

    The food was great! It was flavorful and well worth the cost. The service was very good, our waitress stopped many times to check on us! Everyone was very polite. Family feel to the place! The 25 min drive was well worth it! We are looking forward to the warmer weather so we can enjoy the outdoor dining. The establishment is very clean & comfortable! We will be back soon!
