My teens had to stop at Flora-Bama, so we decided to eat at the Ole River Grill. The wait was over 45 mins and then we waited another 40 minutes for our food. My kids nachos was cold. My clubs bread was so hard I could not eat it. Just ate the chicken off the club.
The key lime shrimp was delicious! My son said the hamburger was just ok.
The other son said the fried chicken tenders was on point. So I guess this place is hit or miss.

We were there for over 2 hours. There was no one else waiting to be seated but we waited 15 min's. There were tables open all over so maybe not enough staff? I figured that everyone wanted to be seated outside but after a while I realized most people waiting were inside. The outside was full and I can see why. Beautiful sunset we noticed when I was trying keep my kids busy while we waited for food. I got blackened fish tacos - not much taste with not a lot fries. The kids burger - you get half a burger & half bun with some fries for $8.00.
I knew this place was not going be amazing but it was even less impressive than I could have imagined. I might go back for a drink since we got free drink coupons but that's about it.

We had a really long wait for a table when there were lots of tables that appeared open. Under staffed perhaps. The staff also seemed to lack energy. The food was decent. Maybe we were there on an off night

The single worst dining experience of my life. Service was so poor, it was unbelievable. Food was not good, drinks were not good...and the painful experience lasted 3 hours. Saw other people walking out....wish I had done the same. Do not go here. Trust me, I warned ya.
