the resturant has been took over by the people that run the bonnie cafe,and yes they do have good food there now.i guess you have not tried it since they took over..i do agree that the bar needs new management..the current manager patty is worthless...worthless..worthle ss..she is a drunk thats is very rude and has no idea what the meaning of customer service is..she also manages the gas station and thats a joke...
I couldn't agree with you more....she is a rude drunk!!! I did try the cheeseburger..not bad. I also couldn't agree more with the smoking thing. They allow smoking in the bar and then you are about blown away with it while you try to take your family there to eat!

The place used to be so fun! Not so anymore!! If you don,t sit on the corner of the bar you don,t exist!Bartenders are only friendly to the manager and the drunks that sit with her and there own friends!Everyone else gets treated like they have the plauge! People are barred or treated like shit on the basis of weather the three drunks on the corner like them!

Couldn,t agree more, me and my girl friends used to go there all the time,but when we tryed to cut up like the older people at the corner of the bar and the manager, we were ask to leave!! We were not cussing loud or singing at the top of our voices songs that no one there could stand like they were, we were just trying to have a good time! Everytime we tryed to play the juke box they would put more money in and hit next on all there songs over and over! when we complained we were told to leave!! Fuck the Zone!!

Just because you like to go somewhere and listen to live music and enjoy a few cocktails (like a responsible adult) doesn't make me a scumbag. Just like your ignorant comment doesn't mean that you are STUPID!!!
First of all living in Benton qualifies you for scum bag status, most people over 30 in bars are sum bags.

I don't live in Benton, so I am not a "scum bag". Maybe some are over 30 and a scum bag and some are not! Who are you to judge all people anyway??? Maybe you are the scum bag!!!

Just because you think it doesn't make it true. Who are you to judge me for judging others ? Oh wait it's something called an OPINION or judging by your reasoning. I take it you have no opinion about anything, because based on your logic that would be " judging"... scum bags all over. OPINION of course...

Had good time but could have been my company that was dead so we moved the party....and no I don't make a habit out of this. Just had horrible day and made it better.

The zone is a million times better now. The drunk bitch is gone and the new ppl running it are so nice, social, and cool. They have 2 new HOT bartenders, that also have personality!! Definitely makes for a much better experience. You can order food on the bar side and actually enjoy it without it tasting like cigarette smoke!!!!'Cause there's no more indoor smoking, they now have a smoke shack....fair? I think so!!! Band almost every Fri and Sat night as well!!
