Thank you, Richard, for letting us be part of such a fun, special family get together. There are few things I enjoy more than a cold beer and good prime rib -- I'm glad we're on the same page. Next time you find yourself in our neck of the woods, you'll have to swing in again. Safe travels, Chef Steve More

Great place to eat. The décor is more for a man because there are animal's every where. They do take reservations. Small building

This place has great service. The food was really good. The Chili has just the right. The amount of spices blended well together and make the already great meat taste even better. The portion size is on the large side but not ridiculously so. Three of us had burgers and all of them were great. The only thing that I... More

We were driving home from Columbus and I found this on trip advisor. We were driving from the interstate to the restaurant and my fiancée thought I was taking him in the middle of the woods to leave him....lol....he thought did cross my mind 😊.

Excellent restaurant good service, good food. Desserts are good. Waitstaff is very attentive. The decor is a bit too woodsie for my taste, but many seem to enjoy it.

Had a bad experience with being waited on. We were seated but didn't get served for over a half-an-hour after other customers had arrived after us. Customers were being served, and fed while we still waited to have our order taken. When order finally was taken which was just an order of "Shrimp Cocktail in a glass for my husband,... More

This is pretty disheartening, Darcel. I have to say, though, I think you have the wrong place on here. We don't serve shrimp cocktail, so I'm a little confused by your review. That being said, everyone is welcome at our place, and I'm confident speaking on behalf of my team when I say that no one would ever intentionally give... More

You really can't beat the steak here but go before 6 as they get busy. The barkeep is a good fellow so you can belly up to that but it's full all the time.

We took an 8-mile total detour from I-77. Beer was cold. They had an amazing Rueben burger. The biggest thing I would change would be to have salad greens instead of iceberg lettuce. I think the salad is listed as having greens, but greens meant iceberg only. Also, the iced tea could have been stronger in flavor.

Pros-even though it's known for its steaks, vegetarians can go there and be pleasantly satisfied and leave full and happy! Best stuffed ravioli in 100 miles! (No meat) Desserts are great too! Friends love their steaks! Con-servers usually seemed overwhelmed with tables and service is slower compared to other restaurants in area plus long waits whenever we want to go... More
