Food isn’t good. If you don’t like something, plan on paying for it anyways. Service is very slow. Won’t be returning. Worst restaurant I’ve ever been to.

Basically, we just grabbed a burger plate and kicked back on the porch. Our order took a little bit to get to us, but we weren't in a hurry. The food was very good (seasoned nicely, hot and fresh).

Simply the worst restaurant east of the Mississippi. Order the ostrich burger.. they will tell you it’s frozen and take an hour. A table of four near us waited over an hour for a simple meal, finally was served, and just walked out. How this...More
