Geno must not have been in the day we visited. Walk in the door, everyone at the bar turns around to look at you, including bar staff, they all realize quickly that you aren't a regular and become disinterested. We sat ourselves, then waited and waited. I make a move to stand up and leave and am finally acknowledged by the bar staff chatting with the regulars. They say someone will be with us in a minute. I notice a can of bug fogger on the fireplace next to me and an open bag of mulch or dirt or something. Just yuck. I cannot believe I stayed, but I did because of the good reviews. I wasn't expecting anything but a dive bar and grill, but bug spray and a bag of landscaping material right in the open where people are eating? Food took forever to arrive too. I will say the pizza was really, really good.
Famous ribs offered only on Thursdays. Probably your best bet if you happen to be in the area. Solid food, cool bar with live music and friendly attentive staff. The owner, Geno, is a retired football legend and often on site interacting with patrons.
I brought my wife and three kids here to eat on Monday and Thursday of this week. Monday we met Gino, and after letting him know how much we enjoyed his restaurant, he shared that Thursday was Rib Night. Gino uses a family recipe passed down from his mother and smokes the ribs for three days. Needless to say, the meal did not disappoint the family. My boys and I each had a half slab of ribs, which fell off the bone and had a wonderfully tasting rub/sauce on them. The staff at Gino's is also excellent. They have a great selection of draft beers, bottled sodas and family favorites for appetizers. This place is a must stop!

Wings are done the right way! They are not breaded and precooked! I noticed at least three different sauces for the wings. I got mine in BBQ and really liked them, they were big and meaty! We have since had the Black and Bleu Salad which is topped with a strip steak and bleu cheese, a Cajun burger that was seasoned really nice and their Friday night fish fry. Tuesday nights they are running a 75 cent taco special! They have a pool table and horseshoe pits. The bartenders are extremely friendly! It is worth the extra 2 block drive outside of town to eat here!

Conveniently located in the Crystal Mountain Resort this pizza joint exceeded our expectations. We ordered a smoked chicken pizza with BBQ sauce (hand toss thickness) and it was delicious. The 18-piece chicken wing serving was also cooked just right and lost of toppings were offered on the side. Fast delivery service, but they forgot to send any napkins or utensils, which was not a big deal but worth mentioning.

Go out of your way to find this place. Great food. Great little country cafe. Don't miss the homemade raisin toast! The sausage and biscuit gravy was great! We are coming back. Thanks Rosie!
A very solid place for breakfast. Came in here with a big group. Just the basics type of place but very quality service and the food is good too. The atmosphere is very down home as well. We will definitely be back when we visit Crystal Mountain.
Every time I come up this way, I have to stop at Rosies for the Rosies Hash! Love it! They have always been pretty quick with the food, and refill drinks often. I look forward to each trip up, and my breakfast at Rosies!
