We are at the restaurant twice and both meals we awesome! Nelda’s Chicken Pot pie was amazing and should be on the dinner menu as well. The portions were very gracious and staff was very friendly and extremely attentive! Great experience!

Wife had lasagna. I had boneless beef ribs. Very good. Homemade rolls with garlic/olive oil dipping free prior to meal, delicious. Live entertainment in the main dining room and bar. Patio dining if you prefer. Waitress was very attentive and sweet. Great place for dinner...More

We use to love driving from Clarksville to enjoy an evening of good food and entertainment. However, we went with some friends tonight, and I must say very disappointed. The menu has changed and it is very limited in selection. Awful move for you guys....More

We stopped in for dinner...disappointing. Meat was over done and took a long time for our dinner. Our server gave a good effort but wouldn’t recommend. Singer was hard to hear.

Food is overpriced for its value, but the environment is very cool. I would recommend visiting there and taking time to roam the property. They have a gift shop, hiking, distillery, winetasting and is Dog friendly

The drink prices are not listed on the paper menu, either. I wound up having to ask the waitress. Sweet tea was $2.50, with free refills. The waitress even offered to bring me a to-go cup of sweet tea, as I was getting... More
