I was there at lunch. The place was busy but not crowded. I had the pulled pork sandwich it came with potato chips. I also had a glass of sweet tea. The pulled pork sandwich was good. The waitress NEVER asked if I needed anything...More

Stopped on our drive home for lunch. Food was just ok not bad but nothing exceptional either. I had the beef brisket sandwich which tended on the fattier side. Again ok place just not worth going out of the way to get to.

The food is excellent. The service pretty good. Just an old neighborhood bar with food and ambiance to match. Lots of TV's to watch. Cold beer and folks you might know or might not, but will probably meet.

Upon the recommendation of the hotel staff where we stayed, we opted to eat here rather than a chain restaurant near the interstate. It was a very good decision. The place isn't fancy, it's a bar and restaurant where you seat yourself. But the food...More

I am not certain. The restaurant is divided in two sections, one for dining and the other has the bar a few dining tables. You should ask them directly.
