Steak, ribs, prime rib, chicken, lamb - you name it. Portions are generous and cooked to your specifications. Full bar, nice wine list and plenty of options for beer. Premises are spotless and decorated with wild game trophies. Good selection of desserts. Service was adequate, but nothing to write home about. Lots of parking and great area immediately bay side...

We went for dinner on a Saturday evening and though the parking lot was full, the restaurant had room and we were seated immediately. They are a BBQ place and we had had an unmemorable lunch so we thought we would give them another chance. They are consistent. We ordered vidalia onion rings which were so greasy we sent them...

This is actually a really nice barbq restaurant. Someone has put some love and $money$ into this place. I was expecting a local version of Applebee's and quickly changed my opinion. We live in St. Louis and hence have considerable knowledge and palette for barbq type food. The food here is very good. The restaurant is also positioned near a... More

Wife & I recently dined here. My meal, pulled pork, with barbecue beans and Cole slaw was good. We had deep fried artichoke hearts as an appetizer that were tasty. My wife had the pork ribs, which have apparently won multiple prior awards. Rest assured the award would not have gone to these ribs, which were way over-smoked and truly... More

I do not understand the bad reviews on this restaurant. We almost didn't go because of them, but it was so convenient to our hotel and they offered a 10 percent discount for staying at the Best Western and we were too tired to go anywhere too far. We both ordered the half chicken BBQ platter and the salad bar.... More

The food was really good but could have been a little more of it. Being spoiled coming from the central coast and having AJ Spurs to eat at we are used to so much food you carry out your next meal. Here great food but even the kids finished it all

Nice view of Humboldt Bay, combination sports bar & hunter's paradise with lots of mounted wildlife & taxidermy. Large bar area with nice drink selection, good service by the wait staff, fair amount of food for the money and average bar-b-que.

food was good for what there was of it, my baked potato was so tiny, maybe 2 inches if that. Margarita was not very good, I think they forgot that a full shot of tequila is needed for the drink. waitress hardly came around and didn't refill our drinks until we asked and it took her forever to get back...

There really isn't much choice round here but we had a good enough meal here of steak and chicken skewers and a decadent pud. From the perspective of a Brit this place is macabre with not only countless animal heads on the walls but antler piles slung from the ceiling and half animals sticking out of the walls. Seriously guys,... More
