    Finally found a "neighborhood" bar that has no minuses. Well, maybe it'll be a bid loud when it's full - we were there at lunch when there were only about 50 people in the large room.

    Great service and prices. We were a large party of 12 and everyone was served at the same time - hot food, too! The only downside the we had was parking. I had to wait 10 minutes before a spot opened up.

    Great food at a great price. Very large menu, large portions, quality food. Service was excellent. Very energetic VIBE. We sat inside, but in easy view of the large full bar, and when they opened the "garage doors" behind the bar the outside area with full stage and live entertainment could be heard without being overwhelming.

    This place was super loud on a late Saturday afternoon outside. There was a game going on over a loud speaker right next to us after which a band was setting up. It was very hard to hear one another talk outdoors. I was not a fan of the smoking nearby. That said, the pulled pork sandwich and margarita were really good. The Black widow burger got rave reviews. The salmon with rice or grits seemed fine.

    Good value but typical bar type food and awful margaritas…DONT order those! Other than that it was fine but probably won’t go back. There are too many better options in the area.

    Arrived 15 mins before our reservation but they were ready for us. Had a great table with a good view of the band out under the pavilion. The entertainment was top notch. First was Marker 5 who we wanted to see not realizing that a Huey Lewis tribute band followed and they were a lot of fun!! We brought out of town family that were very impressed. Wait service was a bit slow but she was slammed and did her very best. Dinner was delicious and hot as always. Looking forward to our next visit.

    We ordered two plant based burgers and were told they were out of them. We ordered the Brussels sprouts appetizer (that was supposed to come with bacon), and we asked for it without bacon. It came WITH bacon on the bottom of the plate underneath the cheese!!! We told our server and he said he told the kitchen not to put bacon on the dish. He was completely hands off as if to say he had done his part. There was no offer any sort of discount for the mistake or an apology. All around, a horrible experience!

    Husband’s hamburger was just the way he ordered it- med rare and delicious. I had the nachos with pulled pork and they were great. The tater tots on the side topped off the meal. I would have given 5 stars if the table cleaner wasn’t running around swinging the dirty cleaning rag he used on the tables.

    My wife had the chicken and grits and was satisfied, although she thought there could have been more chicken. The grits were very good, and I agree, as I had them for a side with my chicken pesto sandwich. We also felt the twisted fries were fresh and hot when served to us which was a good thing! Our waitress, Gabby, was very pleasant, attentive, and knowledgeable about the choices on the menu. The peanut butter pie and chocolate cake we shared for dessert (with our two friends) were delicious, creamy, and baked to perfection. Our only complaint was the noise level. They had a band playing on the large outside stage next to the open-aired dining room. We didn't expect this at four o'clock on a Sunday afternoon. It was very hard to converse over their music. Luckily, they only played for about the first 30 minutes we were there and then they were through for the day. We would go back again as we felt the food was above average and the prices were reasonable including the desserts which are often over priced.

    Where to start. The music was so loud you couldn’t hear your own conversation with your dinner guests. I ordered the Road King Ribeye (Medium) it came out Well Done. Sent back to refire, the next steak came out RAW. Literally Raw, it had grill marks but was Purple in the middle not Red but Purple. Then they tried charging $3 for the salad that came with the dinner per the menu. Had to get my parties own drink refills twice. Then the waitress argued with me over the salad being included until I pointed it out on the menu that it WAS included with the meal. With all the issues from our 8 top table never once saw the manger. Will not be back.

    When we booked the table we didn’t realize that there was a concert scheduled in the back area. There was a bit of a wait even with a reservation but the food was great. Had a newly hired server but she provided great service despite the crowd and busyness. Overall a good experience but would like to return when it’s not so wild.
