Selected Malarkey's from Trip Advisor and we were NOT disappointed! 1min after we arrived a storm hit and knocked out power, so didn't get A/C, but they still served us drinks and a fabulous lunch. Hamburgers were delicious and the pork tenderloin was enough for two! Great staff! Will definitely visit again!

Food is good but it is way too smokey. Even tho they limit smoking area,mot is still too smokey for us. Too many other places to go that are not smoking so prefer not to go here.

It was fine I guess. The staff was great, food was good/okay. But it's a smokyish dingy looking bar...maybe fun to drink at but weird place for me and my kids to eat.

They really offer pretty good food and a decent price. They manage to cook a well done cheeseburger and it's still moist and juicy. We go here often for lunch meetings.

The food is Excellent, the service is always good and fast. I have a problem taking myself in there though let alone a 5 year old grandchild because it is so smokey.

This appears to be a local favorite place. The food and a service was very good. My daughter had a generous kids meal with plenty of fries. I really liked the pizza and my wife enjoyed her chicken sandwich. The potato salad is homemade and was tops. The only downside is that they permit smoking in the bar so the... More

Too smokey - food good but won't go back while smokey - if hoes to total non-smoking would go back. That is it.

I've been here numerous times and have never been disappointed. Drinks and food are generous but reasonably priced. Service is very good and certainly friendly. They have live music occasionally and I'd probably go there more frequently if the music events were closer together. For a bar restaurant in a small strip center it's top notch.

Stopped here on the way back from Ha Ha Tonka state park. Sat at the bar and had drinks, salads and pizza. The service was super friendly and fast. The salad was good. The pizza uses the cracker thin crust. I loved it! Prices are more than reasonable. I ordered a margarita and thought it was perfect, not too sweet.

Feb. 15, 2016 Had drinks and dinner. Ashley was bar tending and supporting the restaurant. Had the BBQ Brisket sandwich and sweet potato fries. Very good. This is my "go to" place when I want a good drink and good food and it is the locals favorite as well. Smoking is allowed in the bar area. If you don't like... More
