This place is like a big cabin with good food. Highlight is the steaks and baked sweet potato for many. They also have several beers that are not too expensive, a 3 sided table display listed them. I dont live too far away but Im ready to go back for those sweet potatos!

I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. I usually order the ribeye steak because it is consistently excellent. Never need steak sauce. It is seasoned perfectly.

Can't go wrong with the ribeye, Wayne -- when you don't need sauce, you know it's good. We appreciate you coming back to see us, and I hope you come for another steak soon! See you then, Kathryn Millis More

First of all, I absolutely LOVE the creative bear logo and mascot. Food was good but can't say it was awesome with the exception of my sweet potato. Not sure how they cooked it but it was great.

After a friends wedding rehearsal we all dined here. They have a small upstairs location that seated the wedding party (about 20 people) and there was two more smaller tables for guest. The wait staff was incredible nice and considering our large party and how busy they were, the service and speed was excellent. The fired pickles were great, came... More

What a great occasion -- I'm thrilled we helped make it special! It's great our staff made everyone feel welcome.

Had the chopped steak with mushrooms and onions. The meat was absolutely perfect. Came with salad and a side. Others in our group had the ribeyes. Service, food, quality was perfect. We will be going back. Josh was our server. Parking is a bit tough, so plan for that.
