The wood fired taste is very good. I had the prime rib with all the trimmings. They have cocktails to go along with your meal. You get free peanuts to much on while you are waiting for your meal along with home made bread.

We've tried to eat here every time we pass through Kearney but it's always packed. Arrived early on a Saturday and got our chance. Great service. Good food. Cole slaw was best I've had and I'm a Cole slaw snob.

service was o.k., atmosphere was blah, food was not up to par. they used to have the best steaks around, but this visit left us wondering if we should make a return trip in the future.

A great place for steaks. Some good early evening specials on Sunday-Thursday. Flame club provides some additional incentives.

We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy our Alabama White Sauce. We make it fresh in house, and it is a traditional Alabama White Sauce recipe. Thank you for reaching out, and we hope you give us another try in the future.

Made the stop here on our way through on the interstate. We each had a different food...shrimp, steak, baby back ribs. Everyone thought it was very good. Their dinner salads are wonderful too! Our server was friendly and attentive to our drink refills.
