The food is great and the portions are huge. Staff is very friendly and accommodating too. We have been 3 or 4 times and I could eat there every week. Prices are not too bad either. It can be a little crowded but it is...More

A very charming place in the center of Wilkesboro. Food and beer is good and somis the service. And I love the historical photos on the walls. Often live music.

Service was superb. Very friendly and sweet waitress. Didn't have my first selection for appetizer so they comped my second choice. Salad could use some croutons. Food was average.

If you have not been here lately try it again. Food was very good and the portions were huge. A little pricey but you get so much. They seem to be transitioning to a restaurant with bar atmosphere at night. Glad I went back
