The restaurant handled our group of 25 very well. We were offered a choice of 4 menu options. My steak was really good. Wait staff was really friendly and quick. No complaints. We were served quickly. Food was good. This restaurant is organized.

Found this restaurant unexpectedly. Great alternative to eating at the pricey Opryland Hotel or eating at one of the chain restaurants in the outlet mall. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Drinks were good too. Would definately return here. Excellent service also.

Howdy, Y'all! We like to keep things simple. Our formula to being the best in the business is very simple: We serve great tasting, high quality food in a fun atmosphere at a decent price. Our flavors come from the Southwest as well as regional favorites, and we use recipes that have been in the family for a long, long time. Every day, we age and hand-cut our steaks, bake our yeast rolls and make our famous sauces in each restaurant…the fresh way. We value our local communities and are committed to supporting the activities that are important to our guests. We currently employ more than 2,000 employees in over 20 locations in the Southeast and Oklahoma. Your opinion matters to us so let us know how we’re doing. Our Motto Is Simple: REAL. FRESH. FUN.
