5 Fun-filled Reasons to Chill this Summer at Horsefeathers Roadhouse

IMG-20150321-01554No matter how you slice and dice it, summertime is simply “sun-sational”! Our minds operate better in hot weather, according to researchers who study what is between our ears. They have discovered that our brains have a built-in mechanism for seasonal time-keeping that directly affects our moods and sleep habits. We say that is pretty cool. No wonder we stay so focused on fun in the sun!

At Horsefeathers Roadhouse (HFR) Lake Norman we strive to keep things simple on these sun-filled, balmy days. “Brain research” aside, it is pretty much a “no-brainer” that during the summertime, chillin’ out at Horsefeathers is incredibly satisfying!

The perfect environment for a great time is just 20 minutes from anywhere in the Piedmont, from Lincolnton to Mooresville right here in North Carolina’s Lake Norman country.

As outdoor temperatures rise, here are five summer filled reasons to choose the legendary Horsefeathers Roadhouse Lake Norman for your relaxin’ pleasure:

  • 8,000 sq. ft. of in-the-house entertainment: Come right on in – the weather is perfect indoors at HFR, day or evening! Dine on unsurpassed BBQ and other southern menu delights; kick back for your TV fix (don’t miss a single sporting event!); shoot pool; twirl fancy-like on the dance floor, or just lay claim to a barstool and chat with a buddy (or two). On Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in the summer and fall, we have live music featuring Country/Southern Rock beats. Sweet!
  • 2,100 sq. ft. of outdoor loafin’ space: As satisfying as our HFR indoor entertainment/dining complex may be, we know that our guests cannot let summer slip by without taking in the beauty of the outdoors. Our two-level HUGE deck provides prime space for live music, sippin’ brew, visiting, or just nature gazing. Put your boots up on the table.
  • Spirit-lifting camaraderie: Everyone needs people! Come with friends in tow, or mingle while you’re here for some informal meet and greet. Horsefeathers Roadhouse is a laid-back, relaxed hangout where you aren’t expected to sit bashfully in one place, dine, pay the tab and then waltz out the door. No-no-NO! Our “regulars” have mastered the art of wandering around and making themselves right at home; we invite our new guests to join in that tradition! Head to the bar and grab a drink; the ladies are pourin’.
  • Icy cold beverages galore: When temperatures rise, there’s nothing quite the equal of chillin’ with a cold one! Horsefeathers Roadhouse provides serious thirst quenchin’ with brews from our 24 taps, or bottled selections from our 11 door cooler. Plus we offer sweet tea and other icy cold soft drinks, of course! 
  • Our kitchen can take the heat: Here at HFR we do the everyday “kitcheny” jobs our guests don’t have time to do, want to do, or know how to do. Cookin’ southern is our specialty, and our menu says it all! Come right on in, call us for delivery, or stop by for take- out anytime, including large bulk orders for home events.

This summer, beat the heat by chillin’ at Horsefeathers Roadhouse, Lake Norman. Our friendly staff is ready to serve you with top-notch southern foods all wrapped up in an abundance of smiles. Our parking lot is huge. Our food and entertainment simply cannot be beat. We hope to see ya soon!
