Went here for a Office Christmas party. I have the Buffalo chicken and enjoyed it, although I ate it too quick for my indigestion. I good place to go eat when you're in London.

Have eaten here many times and never have had a bad experience. The food is always correctly prepared and delicious. The service is friendly and always ask the right questions to ensure we get exactly what we want. Beyond doubt one of the best places in Eastern Kentucky to have a great dinner.

Waitress was cheerful and attentive despite the Wildcat basketball game on the TV in the bar area where we sat. It got a lot enthusiastic in there despite the fact that Kentucky was bludgeoning Arizona State. The food was a bit better than average bar food. We had opted for a burger and a Reuben so I can't comment on... More

The bison burger was a good lean option. Hubby got steak tips. He enjoyed those. Lots of options on the menu. From bar food to salads and crab cakes. We sat at the bar and the bartender was nice and attentive. We were passing through on our way to the lake. It's off the beaten path and worth the detour.... More

Nice variety on the menu, the meal was good, atmosphere was good. Server was fairly prompt. A little too long waiting on the meal to be served, though.

Hopefully tonight was an off night for this place. We've been here a couple times before and while the service has always been slow, the food is usually good. Tonight, there were four of us for dinner. Three of us ordered baked potatoes with our meal, one had the crab cakes, and two asked for side salads. First, the server... More

We had a party of six for supper. After waiting over a hour for our food we received five meals that were scorched. When we asked for a manager a greasy faced man came to our table he told me he was the owner. He admitted our food was burnt when I told him I wasn't going to pay for... More

Our office hosted an after hours get together with about 18 people. Everything but one plate was correct and that plate was promptly corrected. Wait time on the food was not long at all and there were several other customers there as well. The Buffallo Chicken sandwich is what I ordered and was delicious. While there are other chain restaurants... More
