Recommended by the Hampton Inn staff a half mile down the road. Discount if mentioned. Nothing special but acceptable and a nice view of the lake. On the night we visited they had an local bluegrass band playing as a senior event.

My husband and I dined on the patio and the view of the sunset was wonderful! He had the ribs and I had the pulled pork sandwich. The onion rings were terrific - not sure what was in the batter, but they were great!

This BBQ place was recommended by the hotel staff (Hampton). They did not point us in the wrong direction. It is in a state park which is a little different. We had a very good meal (fried mushrooms-home made and chicken wings). The food was...More
