This establishment was recommended by the concierge at the Gaylord Texan Resort! I was impressed! The Bartender Martin was laid back but ready to address any question you had about a drink, the menu or the neighborhood! I went on a Thursday evening when they offer Karaoke! The organized show started promptly at 7 and Wendy kept things moving at... More

So the previous reviewers are mostly right--average bar with average food. But the staff is friendly, and this is a great place to have a party particularly if you pick the Karaoke night! There were probably about 30 in our group and they took good care of us. There was no complaint when we brought in our own big bottle... More

Went to Back Porch to listen to Tejas Bros group. Ordered chicken fried steak, fries, Texas toast, and was very good. The service was good and waitresses were very attentive coming around every little while.

Went in for Happy Hour/Light Fare. Server was new and did not know a lot about the menu. Ordered the Brisket Nachos. Very little meat and no cheese until you got to the bottom where was a pool of it. Prices were average for both drinks and food.

Food was poor quality - cornbread was chewy. The establishment was empty when our group of 6 came in. The staff was literally just standing around. Two of us in the party greeted the staff separately with no response from them. They brought us water. When we requested straws, the server brought unwrapped straws in her hand and dropped them...

The brisket plate was good with pinto beans and grilled veggies. The Texas stuffed potato was very good. We will go back again but we did spend $40. for three of us with no alcohol beverages.

If you're looking to drink a few beers with your buds and talk loud and cuss, this is the place. If you have young kids, this is not the place. It is a typical bar that happens to sell food.

First I want to make it clear that I am not saying this restaurant is not family-friendly. But they have two inappropriate pictures for kids on the wall. But this one is a tavern and I did not expect too much about kid-friendliness, and other than those pictures, everything else was perfectly fine. Anyhow, we went there for lunch on... More

We stayed nearby for one night and saw an ad for this in a local tourism magazine for Grapevine. The town itself has a lot of character. This place is more like a bar with food. The food is average. Poker players as we walked in, karaoke on certain nights. I think it's not for families, but rather for a... More

Not for everyone but we enjoyed the our server and the food. I had the "Brisket Tacos" and she had the "Texas Tator" filled with brisket. It is a neighborhood bar like Cheers, so of. Plenty of parking and outside patio if is not to hot outside. WE enjoyed and will return, thanks to Groupon. Check it out.
