The service, the view, the food always very good. The smoked prime rib is great. Hamburgers are very well prepared. We always go back.

Best part of the bar is the entertainment. Clay is a Singing Comic Cowboy. Laughed so hard my stomach hurt. Great Pizza and great staff.

See my review of Devil's Pool. All I will say is don't waste money on the prime rib. I've ahd better at a hospital cafeteria.

We had a late evening dinner here once during our stay. We had some drinks and enjoyed listening to Clay Self. The cornbread appetizer is a must! The service was good. The atmosphere is awesome. The view anywhere on Big Cedar property is outstanding.

Buzzard Bar is kind of a low key restaurant/bar during the day and really fun at night. Everything I have tried has been pretty good from nachos to prime rib. Prices are quite reasonable. You will enjoy the scenery outside this restaurant too.

After dinner we went downstairs for a few drinks and there was a gentleman that has been entertaining for many years. He plays guitar and does not have a bad voice. Funny and entertaini ng. Good drinks and good entertainment.

There's comfortable seating indoors amid antique appointments and the usual collection of stuffed, furred and feathered friends, or you may choose an outdoor setting on our patio or overlooking the pool. Every evening, we'll feature local entertainers including our very own Singin’ Cowboy playing and singing all your favorites. Buzzard Bar is a non-smoking establishment.
