We were here for around 4 hours, and it was a really nice place to hang out. We started out at the bar, and our bartender Cheryl was very good to us and made sure our drinks were never empty. We moved to a table...More

We dined here simply because I found the barn/restaurant on the hill rather stunning. We were there later on a Sunday, so we were forced to sit in the pub area. I was glad the TV football game was turned low enough to have a...More

We usually just have drinks at the bar. Free popcorn. Bartenders and customers are fun. When we do order food we eat at the bar and all has been good. Lots of Tvs to watch sports. Dave makes the best old fashioneds.

The atmosphere was one like a retirement home. The waitstaff was lackluster and our waitress never cracked a smile. I had scallops which were tasteless and rubbery. My boyfriend had a burger which was basic, and didn't have the BBQ sauce on it that he...More

We were patrons of the Cottonpicker from the time they opened their doors until they closed. Always great food and service. For some unknown reason we never visited the Cotton Exchange until last evening. From my wife's comments glad that we had not visited sooner....More

.When we walked in the front door, the first thing to hit us was the smell of dirty carpet and old grease. We ordered the sirloin steak with a salad and baked potato. The salad was wilted and old-tasting. Lots of 'rusty' pieces of bitter...More

Nice place. It's a renovated dairy barn. I've eaten in the silo room before for a work outing. Recently we joined some friends for Sunday brunch. WOW! The foods in the display were excellent, and if you wanted something else, they make it for you!...More
