For 34 years we have been able to provide Big Chickers, in addition to a great staff, a beautiful environment and good cocktails;  great bar food, drink specials, deals, free buffets, BUCK BURGER nights, all for decades! People have asked when will this return? ANSWER.....who knows? I don't. Right now we are fighting not only this pandemic, but an economic crisis we have never experienced before. We will continue to serve great food at reasonable prices, tasty drinks served with charm, a loving atmosphere to hold you in. We all look forward to a return to some semblance of normalcy. love michelle

Stage 4 is here! Keeping you informed that we have installed a NASA approved air scrubber in each room of the premises. This is an air intake that pulls all the inside air in and passes it through HEPA filters, a UV light chamber, then onto a platinum surface. It kills all bacteria, fungus and viruses. It is used by NASA for their enclosed spaces. 

Inside seating, limited, is now OK. We are also very aware that all of us must continue to practice safe socializing. The staff takes their temperature upon arrival every day. 

We wear masks and visors for safety, gloves where applicable. Everything you touch, from the salt and pepper shakers to the menus is sanitized after single use.

Social distancing is a must as is a mask for entry, and walking inside premises.

There is abundant hand sanitizer, free gloves if needed. Disposable masks are available for a $1. All of this is to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Wine Of The Month IS BACK!

2018 Westmount Pinot Noir Rosé

Westmount 2018 Rose Wv Pn

$6 a glass or $20 a bottle, perfect for the hot summer days!

An ocean breeze as you relax in your hammock on a tropical beach. Strawberry, watermelon, white pear, lavender, and pineapple surround the senses. This all-day-rose is round and racy with beautiful weight and length, a product of its Pinot Noir composition. Incredibly fresh on the palate with dragon fruit, blood orange, and lychee flavors.
