A mac and cheese flight? Roasted garlic tater tots with Parmesan and black truffle aïoli? Lone Star beer-brined smoked-brisket egg rolls? Those are ust the appetizers. The most popular mains are grits with tasso cream sauce and the grilled bacon-wrapped meatloaf with mushroom demi-glace, two stellar examples of Southern's upscale comfort food.

Relax after a day on the lake with a cold brew or a bottomless tankard of iced tea. The daily buffet always features fried catfish, vegetables, and a salad bar.
