Stopped by for lunch and had some amazing ribs. The staff was pleasant and service was OK. The atmosphere was awesome with all the guitars from artist who had performed. Nice place to take a rest and refresh yourself before more sightseeing.

We stopped here since it had gotten good reviews and they were supposed to have late afternoon music talent. The music still wasn't there a half hour after they were meant to start. The food was also a bit disappointing. I had the BBQ bologna...More

Yes, starting around 8pm every night there is a cover. They have live music 365 days a year. Cover can vary on weekends depending if there is a national touring act.
