I've been coming here for years. Live music, great food & drinks, all in a really cool atmosphere. The patio is great for warmer weather hanging out, and the barroom is appropriately dark. Great for travelers, locals, and families.

Great place to throw a business meeting or just casual dining. They are average on food prices, but it's great just to grab a drink. The service needs a little work, but other that that a great place.

Me and my family waited on our food for 2 hours. When we asked the server what was taking so long she told us they were just being slow. We eventually got up and left. Worse service ever and I will never come back.

The owner of this Ruston staple is one of the rudest individuals in the service industry that I have ever encountered. Myself and others were sitting at a reserved table, signified by my actual name, when this man wanders over, peering at the tables, and...More
