    Always good music booked there. If you are going to have dinner, ask to be seated where Anthony would be your server! He has the perfect personality and knowledge to make your night a memorable one!

    This place is trying to be upscale, but the food is not that good - the portions are small and the price is insane for what is served. Overall amateur operation. Go for drinks. Eat elsewhere

    Blues music upstairs is the best. Saw Moondog Medicine Show there and they totally rocked it! Worth the 3-hour drive!

    The rustic­ horseshoe bar was long on brown liquor, with more than 50 whiskeys. The quasi-Southern menu was ­ambitious, embracing everything from agave-­sweetened glazes to house-cured bacon. Read more

    Go with at least 4 people so you don't have to decide on just 1 dish. I recommend the pork duo and ribs. Even the grilled Caesar salad is delicious.

    You can probably already hear the music from where you're checking in, but did you know they have shuffleboard. Yes, shuffleboard.
