Visited the key hole for lunch. Drinks were great. Food was above quality bar food and staff was incredible. Enjoyed the chicken quesadilla with the advice of the waitress and I was not disappointed.

Excellent wing sauce. Ribs and chicken fingers were good. Blackened fish is also recommended. Only wish they had more kid meal selections, like a kid burger or hot dog. Prices were reasonable for the area. Also recommended by locals
