The food is great. Like the bar. I like the atmosphere. The service is great. Great for two people or great for banquets as well.

We have eaten at this place several times over the past few years and it seems that something always goes wrong. Not sure if it's staff is properly trained. The last time there our chicken wings tasted like fish. We ordered tonic and lime and got club soda and lime and you need to wait awhile for your server to... More

We wanted to go for a Sunday afternoon motorcycle ride but had no specific end point. A coworker told me several times that she and her family loved going to Great American Saloon so we took a chance and went for dinner. We did not have to wait for a table, or our waitress! She was friendly and very helpful... More

In town on business and visited with family that lives local. The waitress was awesome and the portions were huge. The only complaint I have is that they do not serve sweet tea, only a raspberry tea.

Ate at the Great American Saloon and I'm not certain that I'll return. I called ahead to see if they were busy around 5:30 pm and the host stated they were not busy. Since we live about 5 minutes away, we hopped in our vehicle and headed over. When we arrived, the hostess informed us we had to wait over... More

I had a really terrible experience here the soup had shell in it, the waitress wasn't attentive, the food was cold, I told the waitress and she just said wow I'm sorry and didn't do anything about it, I asked her 3 times. They changed the gravy recipe and it tastes cheap. I was just really let down by this... More

My wife and I received a gift card for Christmas for the Great American Saloon. We had never been, and being our weekend was open, decided to pay a visit. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. The various décor along the walls and above added to the new experience we were enjoying. Our service was great - we didn't wait... More

We went to this restaurant for dinner tonight and, although the service was good and the venue was busy, the food was just so so. I had a beef dish and my wife had a chicken dish. Neither were very good. It surprised me based on what many have written in their reviews of this restaurant. Maybe it was an... More
