Order appetizers...you won't regret it. Wonderful surprise. Pasta dishes are huge. Skip the stuffed shrimp though.

We visited this restaurant and we're disappointed. The service was fair. We had a long wait for food. The food was mediocre at best. We will not be returning.

Get the pork chop. It is about a mile thick and swimming in some kind of delicious sauce. The mashed potatoes are also fabulous, and the fish tacos were unique and very light and tasty.

Great location just off I-59 South of Lufkin, walking distance from Hampton Inn. Great food at a good price! Excellent service in a welcoming setting. An ideal place for dinner if you are staying at a hotel nearby!

We stayed at a nearby hotel and asked the desk clerk for a good place to get a steak. She suggested this place and we tried it. GREAT CHOICE!!! The steaks were so tender and cooked to perfection. It seems a bit pricey BUT you get a salad and two sides with it so it was worth it to us.... More

Visited here with a business friend. The service was good and the service was as well. I'll go back for sure. Bobbi's Burbon Tenderloin is an excellent dish if you visit here.

"Hole in One" has a warm,cozy feel and the food is excellent. The desserts are all freshly made and so good. I love the salad dressings and the fresh ingredients used in the salads. Lufkin is fortunate to have a stylish restaurant with good food.

Do not judge this restaurant according to the hotel it is attached. Small, clean with a friendly staff & casual nice. Not the type of adult place for a young family to drop in with small children. Was in the mood for Chicken Fried Steak - it is a favorite entree of mine & have ordered it in hundreds of... More
