It is right in the resort complex so it's easy to access but the food is really basic. The margarita was great, probably the best part of the meal. The football game was on so fun atmosphere.

The ribs smoked taste was good, that they were overcooked, dried out and blackened was not, and no good bar-b-que sauce. Cole slaw had absolutely no taste and no seasoning. Our friends had the pulled chicken sandwich which seemed... More

I was trapped at the Town and Country Hotel while at a Conference and was fortunate to find a delicious lunch option. There was seating outside and I chose the inside sports bar area lounge near a TV, they were kind enough to change the channel to CNN. The male server was friendly and extremely accommodating as I made specific... More

The menu is pretty simple with some great burgers, brisket, and ribs. I had the ribs and they were top notch. My colleague had the brisket and his was amazing as well. The sauces were good but a bit watery/runny. I prefer thick BBQ sauce. The baked beans were delish but a bit heavy. The salad had way too much... More

The barbecue wasn't bad but far from great as advertised. Came to me cold. I had to ask for my waitress to come to my table

Went here for a quick dinner after arriving at the hotel after a long trip. Nice outdoor seating in the hotel grounds. Friendly service, canned music good. Good selection of local beers. Liked the Pilsener. The chili burger hit the spot but was nothing special.

Really a very small sports bar. Not much on the menu. Food was ok, and at right temperature. Staff sort of how hum. Would only recommend as a poor second choice when you don't have another option.
