This place sucks. We waited a One g time to be seated in a half empty, less than clean restaurant. They have a very limited menu and our food took much longer than acceptable to come out but was ok. The service was awful. The waitress dropped the check off with the food and told us to let her know... More

The review is only for the service.... We came in on a Friday when the place was half empty. We ended up leaving after apparently getting forgotten by the waitstaff. No one even came for our drink order. Pretty disappointing.

We decided to eat here as we were shopping at Bass Pro and this is located in the Bass Pro Shop. The staff were very nice and accommodating. The food was excellent and the wait time was reasonable. The outdoorsy decor was very appealing to us also. Overall a very nice experience.

Had a chicken rap and side salad. The rap was ok I have had much better. Charged me a $1.75 extra for the side salad but I let them keep the fries should have been a wash. It has always been a question of mine why do we not get a credit if we do not have something with our... More

We were staying next door at the Country Inn & Suites (also near casino with a steak house), but chose to walk over to have dinner at the Uncle Buck's Grill at the Outdoor World/Bass ProShop. I would imagine it is a busy place in cooler months or during a convention, but we had it to ourselves. Delicious meal (I... More

The bartender tried, but the cook...I ordered a medium steak, that's hot pink center in every other part of the world, except here.

We stopped in here for supper after driving 7 hours. We were hungry ordered an appetizer. I requested soup instead of the veg. Normally soup would come before the meal. Our waitress forgot to put the order for the appetizer in so it came AFTER our food. Training is definitely needed. The food was very good though.

This is located in the Bass Pro Shop. We sat at the bar and had lunch. The back wall of the bar is an aquarium. Very relaxing to watch. The food and the service was good. Farrel was a wonderful server and bartender. We really enjoyed our food. This is located across the street from the Horseshoe Casino.
