I ordered blackened catfish with bacon wrapped asparagus along with the a bowl of fried pickles and a trip to the salad bar. Everything was good, the service was okay other than a small mix up with the tea. If I go back and that's just wrong if because I ordered the blackened catfish and was served tilapia it gets...

We eat here often. There are no bad choices on the menu. They have good seafood and steaks. They also have great BBQ!!

I first discovered the place a number of years ago, and though it has changed in appearance and design throughout the years, the food remains pretty good. So , I keep going back.

Food is good but the bar is needs to address non smokers getting choked out with smoke. The staff seems friendly and service is good.

I have been dining here for 17 years. The food is good but can be a little inconsistent. I love their fried shrimp and burgers and the Spicy Grilled Shrimp is great. Not crazy about their BBQ. The other draw back is the smell of cigarette smoke from the bar.

Since there is a bar in the back, the restaurant smells like cigarettes. Not very appetizing to me. Service is sometimes good and sometimes horrible. We just choose not to eat there anymore.

Excellent food and great service. We opted for the steak, and were impressed. They had great options for side orders too.

Didn't know where I wanted to go for dinner after over 12 hours on the road and this place was suggested by the desk clerk at the hotel. Waitress was excellent and gave me a suggestion that was the best meal (shrimp fettucini and bacon wrapped asparagus) I have had in a very long time. Highly suggest it.
