My husband and I are regulars and know most of the servers by name. We generally come at least once a week. But tonight, the service was poor. It took at least 15 minutes to get a server to even order drinks. We waited 15 minutes after being seated then had to flag down the hostess to get a server.... More

This is your sterotypical neighborhood bar. It has nightly specials. The place itself really is a hole-in-the-wall and a bit tired in decor and the service has never really been stellar and the bathrooms are dicey but the food here has been consistently and surprisingly delicious. My kids are especially fond of eating here!

Found this gem on TripAdvisor and was pleased with the outcome. The Signature Burger was delicious as was the mac & cheese. The cocktails were strong and so was the service! Great place for dinner!

My girlfriend and I stopped in here after a long day out in the sun in Loudon County, hungry and thirsty. As the sun set and the cool night air fell on Alexandria, we decided to stop into this neighborhood bar and restaurant and give it a try. we were NOT disappointed at all. Our server (thank you, Cody!) was... More

We go every Monday for a burger and a beer. My burger is always cooked to order perfectly. There are lots of choices on the Monday Night burger menu. If you don't like burgers there are many tasty options on their regular menu. Service is always fast and courteous. There is outside dining weather permitting.

Good food in the Alexandria area. Wings and Ribs are the best in town. Good drinks and location. Friendly and fast service.

We frequent Shooters from time to time on Saturdays as we like the half price bottle of wine night. We were seated outside, which was nice, but had to wait about ten minutes before our server came to see us. He apologized for the delay, but most of our time there he was apologizing for something (wine bottle without glasses,... More

When my fiancé and I tried this place, I was expected a sports bar or something, but it was a great little restaurant with a decent menu. I had meatloaf which was really, really great, and we shared some old bay wings, which were great despite me not being the biggest OB fan. Service was good. Nothing to complain about!... More

We've been coming here for a while and not only is the food delicious but service is always great especially Josh. I highly recommend the appetizer firecracker shrimp but be forewarned, it's spicy but it also come with fried green beans and a wonderful Asian style slaw. You could actually have it as a meal. They also have incredible steak... More
