My first and only visit was a disappointment. The staff was not welcoming or friendly. Service was initiated by me. The girl who I did get to hand me a beer over the counter seemed very put out (gave me exasperated looks and sighs) to have to wait on me. Live music was ok as the guy singing and playing... More

Indifferent service. Everything greasy and fried. Dirty. Nice view but yuck. Nasty place. I would miss a meal rather than eat here again.

We came here one time during the fall when it was unusually warm outside with our dog, which they allowed on the deck. Attempting to get a table was a bit of a disaster. Upon going to the front desk, which the sign tells you to do, the lady didn't seem to understand why I was there requesting a table.... More

Stppoed in on a day of a local festival so everybody must have been tired, but service and food was only mediocre.

Our daughter was amazed at the huge trees inside the restaurant that grew through the roof. Hadn't had fried mushrooms in a long time. They were awesome. The buffalo burger and fried chicken were really good.

We approached the front entrance and while we were trying to figure out how to get a table, the server rushed by me, apparently irritated that I was in their way and called out to me, "Go inside to get seated" and then, thinking I couldn't hear, said sarcastically in a lower voice,"that's what the sign says" as if I...

Went to riverside August 28th. Met up with two dear friends we have not seen in 15 years. There were 7 people include my 85 year old mother in law. We were out side and the other couple wanted to come outside and join us. We moved a table. They said you can't. We moved the table back. They said... More

Stopped in today for lunch at about 2pm after a great hike in the Wichita Mountains. The host told us it would be 15-30 minute wait. That was kind of weird because there were a bunch of tables open but decided to wait. 10 minutes after the couple in front of us were seated I asked how much longer? Answer... More

You have a great view of a little stream or creek or something from your table. You can easily see fish of good size, turtles, etc. you can even go outside and feed them. Waitress was very nice & accommodating, everything we ate was very good. Was a touch pricey, but worth it for the view.

We got there early. Does not open until 1130. All was good. Lovely place to walk around. When the door opened we were greeted by Beth and she waited on us. Great server. The food was excellent. Husband had chicken fried steak. I had fried catfish. Large portions. Had to bring some of mine home. Fried okra was good too.... More
