If you want a bar atmosphere with a full menu of food, this is where it's at. It's like Cheers meets Auntie Skinners. They are open all the time when everything else is closed. I would suggest the shrimp jammers and fried shrimp salad. They are not stingy with their meat. They have a great menu and seating to eat... More

This is a good ole biker bar with lots of smoke. So if you like to ride and have a few beers and can handle the smoke then this place would be fun. They also have bands but would need to check their website for more information.

We stopped in for dinner and it was surprisingly very good. Most of the town is closed on mondays, so we gave Auntie Skinner's a shot since they were open. I had the chicken fried steak and it was quite delicious. They do allow smoking but we were able to escape any direct fumes. I would suggest not sitting too... More

I walked by this place early in the day and perused the menu (pretty standard bar/American fare) and saw the Poorman's Steak which sounded pretty great for a chilly, cloudy day. I wandered around Jefferson and looked at a few different options for lunch but ended up back here for the Poorman's Steak. This is basically hamburger stuffed with jalapenos... More

We had a late night supper here on a Friday night. It was okay, but nothing outstanding. A lot of smokers and hard to enjoy your food, because of it.

I'm sorry, the smokers do love it, and we are one of last smoking bars in Texas. Our back area is usually the less smoking areas. More

Always eat here at least one time when we visit Jefferson. The catfish basket is always great. Draft beer is always cold.

This restaurant is charming and fun. It's not fancy so people come in dressed casually. The food is good. There is a good variety on the menu. If you are in the mood for a salad, burger, or a steak, it's on the menu. They have a large wooden bar and there are always characters sitting on the bar stools.

We came by at night to see a band. They do allow smoking in here, fyi, but it's big enough that it didn't bother any in our group and a couple of us are - as former smokers - really sensitive and annoyingly militant about the "ew, smokey in here." lol Service was really good, drinks were really good and...

A group of friends were in Jefferson recently for an annual motorcycle ride. Everyone was looking forward to dinner and karaoke here. Great time had by all. The DJ/KJ is fantastic and has a wonderful voice. A couple of guys appear to be regulars and also sing really well. Great time and highly recommend.
