Absolutely HORRIBLE from the time we got out of the car until we got back in it to go home! The food was not fresh, it was flavorless, and WAY overpriced! Took forever to get the waitress to take our order, and took 15 minutes to get our drinks. The salads were not made fresh, and were warm because they have been sitting out. That was an immediate indication that they kitchen management does not have the knowledge on how to service or even yet, prepare a proper meal. Our food was dry and had no taste and looked thrown together. So, that being said, I venture to guess that the kitchen is completely unorganized and probably nasty as well. So then I went to use the restroom after our drinks were finally served. They were disgusting and filthy. Which leads me back to my point about the kitchen, because if the management can't take into consideration in the cleanliness of the restrooms for the patrons use, what makes you think the kitchen is any better.......think about that for a minute! Then the prices. WAY OVER PRICED for what would be considered below average at BEST. People, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS PLACE!. It is just as bad as the original restaurant that closed several years back.

We were there on a Saturday night and it was great. Our server was courteous and attentive. The food was really good. We had everything from a burger, seafood, and brisket to steaks. The manager/owner was grilling and exceptionally accessible and friendly. He was grilling and worked as hard, if not harder than anyone else! We had guests from out of town and they can't wait to return. The band, Voodoo Piders, was terrific. If you haven't been there in a while, I reccommend you give it another try. They seem to have gotten in a smooth groove, now. All at our table agreed it was a great experience! We will definitely be going back soon.

We had reservations for a party of 15 at 2:00 Sunday, April 9th. They should have been prepared we didn't just walk in. We were there for over 2.5 hours service was SLOW and never got the orders right. Salads were warm they had been sitting out, not made fresh. Dinner's cold and missing sides. Placed a carry out order at 4:20, party left leaving one person to wait on the carry out which didn't come out until 5:15, 45 mins wait by herself. Shrimp Po Boy 6 pieces of shrimp, seriously. They were out of chili could not order the nachos, out of pasta could not order the voodoo pasta and of all things out of APPLES, this is the item that makes the "The Angry Chops", they weren't so angry, but the one who ordered was!! At one point the person cleaning up the tables had to bring us water when we asked. Server was ghosted like the peppers! New owners will not make it!!! Without the view and bikers they won't have anyone come back. We spend over $325 (includes tip but no alcohol drinks) Never again!!!!!

Had a party of 6 stop at your restaurant on 12/11/16. Waited at least 20 minutes for salads to be brought to us and then another 30 minutes or more for the rest of our food. 5 of the 6 ordered the special which was a pork chop, baked potato, green beans or corn & salad. We were advised after we placed our order that the green beans were not good and had to be thrown out, and we could only choose corn. We should have left at that point but after already spending so much time waiting we decided to stay. BIG MISTAKE!!!! Corn was cold, potatoes seemed to have been left over from previous night and pork chop bad too. We won't be stopping here again ever without first checking reviews to see if food and service has improved. Such a shame because we all enjoyed the food & service from previous owners!!! P.S.. One of our party wanted to order French fries but was told you didn't have any because of having a big unexpected party on previous night & had to make a run to local store to purchase more fries in order to complete that order....can't imagine how long they had to wait!!!! Definitely WORST meal I've ever had!!!!!!
