My hubby and I had Sunday lunch here based on a friend's recommendation. My hubby had a patty melt which he really liked!!!! I had the chicken tenders which were good. The house honey spicy dipping sauce was really good. My hubby even dipped his fries in it. For a laid back simple meal, I would recommend the Sundown Tavern!

Me and my family waited on our food for 2 hours. When we asked the server what was taking so long she told us they were just being slow. We eventually got up and left. Worse service ever and I will never come back.

The owner of this Ruston staple is one of the rudest individuals in the service industry that I have ever encountered. Myself and others were sitting at a reserved table, signified by my actual name, when this man wanders over, peering at the tables, and proceeds to berate us for sitting at a table he believed to be reserved for...

Ate lunch here on a recommendation. Took over 45 minutes to get our food. I ordered a buffalo chicken sandwich. The sauce was sweet and spicy more than buffalo style. The chicken was over cooked to the point the crust on the edges was too hard to eat. Wife had turkey melt and it was good. Also the restrooms are... More

Service was slow to acknowledge us. 2 out of 4 of us were really pleased with the food, unfortunately, I was not one of them. The muffaletta was good, as was the Reuben. However, my oyster poboy was stingy, cold (after waiting 45 minutes) and just yucky. The coleslaw that came with it taste a little off. Another friend's Buffalo... More

Local bar and restaurant. Lots of downtown lunch business. Food was OK, but not anything to brag about. Ordered the hot roast beef sandwich. Bread was fabulous, but the meat was disappointing.

Stopped by for dinner and was very disappointed. Sat outside in the patio area, had to wait 25 mins just to get a menu. Servers basically ignored us and it took over 45 mins for them to make just a salad and Reuben sandwich. Had to wait another 25 mins for the check. Food was nothing special and service was... More

We stopped in for a great out door patio seating. The food was great and the service was quick. When your hungry for a burger don't miss this place.
