This was my 3rd attempt to have a decent, and timely-lunch at this establishment. Once again-disappointment. The food, every time, has been really good. Wait time is horrible. do NOT go here for lunch unless you call it in and pick it up

This is a real gem. The portions are large, the lunch prices are fair value, and the servers are very accommodating = they will cook things to special order without hesitation. The chicken tenders were huge, they have sweet potato fries and fried green tomatoes!

The food was ok, nothing amazing. Like several other reviewers, we had horrible service. Sat at a table outside and waited 15 minutes as several servers walked past us without a greeting.

Business trip here in town. I did not catch the bartender's name but she was pleasant. Wings were very good and the salad was top notch.

I still come here for drinks, it they changed their menu in the last few months. They used to have delicious spinach dip, but the new is pretty bland. It's overpriced for very mediocre food. I'd skip this place and go elsewhere.

We have eaten here once and only would go back because there aren't a lot of other places to eat in Pikeville. Our server seemed annoyed that she had to wait on us and the food was ok but not great.
