This place came highly recommended by a work associate & I was very excited to try it. Our daughter arrived 5 mins ahead of us & attempted to get a table. We were just glad to get there after an hour in the car. It was very disorganized & it appeared no one knew what the heck was going on! We did have a local brew which was tasty. We had the cow chips & dip - both of which were quite flavorful. Unfortunately the dip was plentiful, but the chips were not. When we asked for more chips to finish the dip he never said there would be an additional charge which was out of sight at 2.49! Our burgers were juicy & hot as were the fries. Not sure we’ll make the trek back in the future. Cute place, but parking is horrible!

The Stella Moo Burger is my favorite!! My husband and I visit the Flippin' Cow at least once a month. The staff is very friendly, food is great and the atmosphere is nice. This restaurant/bar is located on Simonton Lake. Eating out on the porch or newly renovated screened in deck lets you take in some of the lake life. They specialize in burgers which are to die for. Their homemade cow chips with the bacon cheese dip is very good. Wednesday's they have a special on their burgers.

We stopped in here for the first time. When we walked in we were asked how many, but not for a name. The guy wrote down 4 and said there was a big group leaving soon, so we went to the bar to order a beer. The Fat Hops beer was good. While we were waiting, another server came up asking those at the door who was next and how many. People who arrived after us were seated first. Thankfully there was a 4 top open near the bar and we asked the bartender if it was ok to sit there. She said absolutely. Our server was the guy who asked how many, but not a name. He took our order for drinks and took forever to bring them to our table. We had to ask multiple times for water. We ordered the bacon, cheese dip to start. When we still had half the dip left, we asked if we could get more chips. He said sure and brought them. We were surprised to see a charge for extra chips on the bill. Give a heads up if there is an extra charge. The burgers were delivered and were quite tasty. The server barely checked on us. Considering it was August on a nice night, they should have been better staffed. They also need a better system for seating tables.

Not busy, but had difficulty being seated. Server confusion. Order not as requested. Nice view, but that doesn’t call for a return visit. Mediocre at best.
