Party of 5, called ahead for seating but still ended up waiting 45 minutes which is fine except there’s no place to sit to wait really. Parking is impossible so plan ahead. Steaks were tasty, salad bar was decent but I feel like it’s overpriced....More

The food is always great here. Service is fast and efficient. Excellent salad bar. Better call ahead for seating or your wait could be long. We tried the grilled shrimp and they were delicious.

My sister and brother-in-law are both vegetarian and they enjoyed the salad bar and baked potato. By the way this is not my restaurant so I do not know if it is affiliated with the one in Boone. Hope this helps.
