Wanted to take a guy friend here for his bd which is in a few days. We had a 6:30 reservation and the place was hoppin', bar area full w people watching the Wildcats/Badgers basketball game. We were told there is an outside area and we ate there. It is a lovely, private, prettily decorated space. Servers wear black cowboy hats and fun decorating in the restaurant itself. Inside is very noisy on a busy evening keep that in mind. We had a lovely waitress and I had pot roast (yum!) and he had seared chicken (also yum!). We had food to take home.
I mentioned at the end I was getting the check since friend's bd and server brought him an apple dessert in the bar area where we went to watch the rest of the exciting (and disappointing) game. The bar area is small as far as the bar with a few tables in there. Would be good to have more separation from the dining area but all in all this is a fun place, pretty & great service - reasonably priced too!

The food was well prepared, served hot, and promptly. Good southwestern comfort food and western decor made the restaurant fun. We each enjoyed our meal. Our server was pleasant and attentive, which we appreciate.

Great décor welcomes you to this small restaurant! They have an extensive menu of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, burgers, pastas, chicken, and steaks with salmon, prawns, meatloaf, and pot roast rounding it off. Something for everyone! The dining room is cozy but they also have outdoor seating and a great bar area. Wait staff is always responsive. Never had a bad experience so I continue to go back time and time again. Highly recommend!

Love the western atmosphere of this small, cozy, and warm restaurant. We recently enjoyed a traditional Thanksgiving meal on their outdoor patio. Took out of state guests there and had another great meal. Try their "comfort food" meatloaf. Their waitstaff has always been friendly and accommodating.
