There was plenty of outdoor seating that was spacious and not worrisome during the pandemic. The staff were all extremely friendly, and even though it seems like you usually order at the counter but with our big group they came to the table. The food came out in a short amount of time and was absolutely delicious! We had such a great time and would recommend to anyone looking to eat in the area!

Thank goodness they have great burgers and tri tip...the other staff is pretty friendly and it’s a convenient stop on the way home from Los Olivos.

You order at the bar and they bring food and drinks to you. Patio was spacious and food was good. Worked out for social distancing and was great for bringing our kids.

They have a really big outdoor patio with tables well spaced out. Service is great.

This could be due to social distancing, but to not check up on how the food is, is not acceptable. The general atmosphere, as a result of the workers there, was luke warm and unwelcoming. Not worth going back!

Sat in a comfortable covered picnic type table. Ordered at the bar. Then server came to deliver drinks and food. Fast and good food. Recommend Texas caviar, Napa cabbage salad with apples and bleu cheese, pulled pork sandwich and the fries are great.

It is more of a tavern than a food place and so loud you can’t hear yourself think, let alone try to have a conversation. I would suggest takeout when in the mood for good BBQ as it is the only place in town that does serve good BBQ. In the summertime, if you can be seated outside, it is not nearly as loud and rowdy.

They brought him a bowl of water which was a nice gesture. I had the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich on brioche which several reviews said was very good and I chose a kale/Brussels sprout salad for my side instead of fries. Both were DELICIOUS! My friends both had quesadillas - one had the chicken and the other the shrimp and they said they were very good and large enough that they both took some home. Parking is limited but the food made for a very enjoyable lunch!

Food was ok, my Tru tip was cooked well. It took me 15 minutes to get the BBQ sauce, which would have made it better. Service was terrible, our drinks came after we were finished eating. The wait staff are poorly trained, not able to answer questions about the menu or drinks. Management didn't try fix it. Wouldn't go back

No problem, we had ribs, fried chicken sandwich, fried chicken and waffles, and quesadillas. All with a pitcher of beer and sangria. All were good except the ribs, supposed to be baby back but were another type. Not bad but not as advertised. List bar like atmosphere but outside was comfortable. Service a little slow but with a toddler things always seem slow. Not bad, would come back.

Their salads are amazing and the fried chicken sandwich is perfection. It’s so wonderful to be able to eat while the kids can be noisy and play away from the other diners as well! I think having such a multi purpose place to eat and be is a huge blessing!

One Star for the salmon- dry and tasteless. One star for the nachos- a mess poured on a gaggle of chips. The burnt ends were worthless as a nacho add on. The guacamole tasted over ripe. Five Stars for the Brussels sprouts which were savory , seasoned beautifully and cooked perfectly. Stick to the basics and you will enjoy.

Each dish we ordered was very tasty and we tried a lot of different dishes. This was a good find for a large group and casual. The waiter could've been a bit more attentive, we kept running out of water, but overall was a good experience.
