We stopped here for a specially prepared lunch buffet as a lunch stop while on a bus trip. Everyone loved the food....so delicious! And the hospitality and service is second to none! The decor is definitely a part of the appeal of The Cow Pen!...More

My pasta primavera was delicious. My husband liked his steak. We had a new waiter named Mark. Nice guy and good waiter. If you want to visit keep your distance from the live music.

We happened on to the Cow Pen on our way through the area and were pleasantly surprised! Ribeye steak was tasty if a bit overdone, husband's seafood platter was delicious. The yeast rolls reminded me of childhood and the salad bar was excellent!

The music was great. Best bean dip, cheese, salsa, & chips ever. The steak was delicious. Great place for group, family, or date night

Pork chop was over an inch thick and sauteed in a rich sauce. I had it served with chunked sweet potatoes in a great sauce. Great meal.
