The place was not even busy, and we had just arrived at The Villages. We were in a great mood! That soon changed when they seated us next to some folks that had too much to drink and were clapping constantly......the reverb sound was awful, and there were 7 of them. Finally, they wandered off just after 2:00 pm. Waiter... More

Visiting area for 1st Tim of wanted to eat at a restaurant not available at home. Staff friendly and service average +. Dinner special was very good at a good price. Appetizer of bacon/cheese fries not that good as not fresh and couldn't even finish as that bad! Atmosphere exceptional. Recommend, but need to improve on the fries...

Able to get seated immediately, waitress stopped by and said she would be right back to take our order. After 15 minutes, spoke with the hostess about who our waitress is. Finally found her, and waited another 10 minutes for her to return for our drink order. We waited another 10 minutes & she said they have a new bartender.... More

Got to have the free roasted peanuts! What a treat and what a mess! They have daily specials and the food wasn't bad. I had a big grill pork chop. Our friends had fajitas and my wife had the steak. I think the steak could have been a bit better with more seasoning. But overall, it was a good experience... More

Fajitas Wednesday is still a go. It's buy one get one. You have a choice of chicken, beef or shrimp. The portions are good size. The drinks are 2 for 1. Sat in the new outside bar area. Nice area but crowded. Could take away about 25% of the tables to give more room. Right now you feel like your... More

My sisters and I ate here twice, and with the variety of restaurants in the Villages that says something. The burgers and steaks were awesome and the service was excellent.

Great meal. Steak was awesome. Nice informal atmosphere with peanuts and lots of beer options. Two for one happy hour and great entertainment. Bottomless salad included with steak. Baked sweet potato with cinnamon butter was great choice. Would definitely return. Brownwood location less crowded than Sumpter Landing location. Friends had half rack of ribs that were too dry so steak... More
