Stepping in to this restaurant is like stepping into another world. Imagine: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre killer’s hunting obsessed brother opens a restaurant down the road from his house. Seriously, I was creeped out in an amusing way when I walked in the doors of this place. It’s in the middle of nowhere, old, dark, and there are dead animals…er…stuffed…game….all over the walls. It’s certainly not a place vegetarians want to venture into. It was surprising pretty busy inside though. The boyfriend and I put in our names, and had a seat at the bar. While waiting to get the bartenders attention, my BF asked the fellow next to him what he was drinking (it was an amber colored beer, so we were hoping they had something decent on tap). He, assuming we knew absolutely nothing about beers, replied that at was a beer called Amber Bock, and then proceeded to explain (terribly) what it tasted like. The boy and I gave each other one of “those” looks laughed a little, and my BF smiled and told the man he’d “tried” it before. Really, there is nothing notable beer-wise at this place, and that’s why I’m a little surprised to see it listed on beerfly. Anyway, on to the food. There were a few interesting unusual things on the menu, and they were alligator and rattlesnake. I was tempted to try them, but wasn’t in a very experimental mood that evening, so I got the Ribs. They were pretty good, not the best, but not bad. Overall, it’s pretty much a steak and potatoes kind of place. Go there if you are in a quirky mood, or if you want some alligator or rattlesnake, but don’t go there expecting to find any good beers.

I've only been here once and I'm not sure I'll go back anytime soon unless I'm hankering for a nice rattlesnake sandwich. Seriously though; I'm suprised this is even on beerfly. The beer selection here is pretty pitiful. The food is very exotic but not spectacular. This is kind of a country type run down establishment, but gets very busy. Either because of the small town only place to eat syndrome or because there aren't many places that have this diverse of a menu. I would like to see some more beers to make this a place more inhabitable, and more worthy of a beerfly listing.

This is well known restaurant in the west central Ohio area. Unique in many respects, the food selection is quite exotic with many different wild meat selections ranging from bison, naturally, to rattlesnake, and lots of other things in between. Good food and a nice tavern area to the side. Linited selection of tap beers, some variety in the bottled items. More the setting than the beer selection recommends this spot.
