I always enjoy eating here as long as I can afford it. The Atmosphere is quiet and dim it could use some update and get rid of the string lights . The staff is friendly and accommodating. The food prices are high, but you have to understand the cuisine they are serving and it makes sense. This isn't an attempt... More

You would drive right by this place if you blinked. But don't. Stop. Order the tenderloin and enjoy one of the most delicious meals ever.

Although located in an older Quality Inn it is obviously one of the locals favorites and I can certainly see why. My waitress, Alicia, was super friendly, right on the spot and very busy. Obvious many of the patrons were not there for their first time and many were greeted by name. Food was elegant and delicious. I had corn... More

We visited this restaurant and we're disappointed. The service was fair. We had a long wait for food. The food was mediocre at best. We will not be returning.

Get the pork chop. It is about a mile thick and swimming in some kind of delicious sauce. The mashed potatoes are also fabulous, and the fish tacos were unique and very light and tasty. The service is wonderful. You might need a reservation, so think about that. We didn't have one and had to eat dinner at the bar,... More

Great location just off I-59 South of Lufkin, walking distance from Hampton Inn. Great food at a good price! Excellent service in a welcoming setting. An ideal place for dinner if you are staying at a hotel nearby!

We stayed at a nearby hotel and asked the desk clerk for a good place to get a steak. She suggested this place and we tried it. GREAT CHOICE!!! The steaks were so tender and cooked to perfection. It seems a bit pricey BUT you get a salad and two sides with it so it was worth it to us.... More

Visited here with a business friend. The service was good and the service was as well. I'll go back for sure. Bobbi's Burbon Tenderloin is an excellent dish if you visit here.

"Hole in One" has a warm,cozy feel and the food is excellent. The desserts are all freshly made and so good. I love the salad dressings and the fresh ingredients used in the salads. Lufkin is fortunate to have a stylish restaurant with good food.
