We had good food and a very nice waiter. Dylan or Daailen served us with a smile, very attentive. Spicy ribs with garlic sauce and coleslaw really did it for me. Will be back for sure

I don't eat pork, so I had the catch of the day. Superb preparation and portions. Friendly wait staff. Cold beer. And they accept credit cards.

I used to go to this place a lot some years ago and I always remember to have good sized ribs. I checked it again lately and I was surprised to see that I got served "pre mature" ribs. Way too small and not as good as they used to be before...

Delicious ribs! Get the mixed combo, which gives you a taste of everything: bbq, original, and a slightly spicy sauce. So good. We got a little tired of the usual restaurant spots on the island and came here for an order of the full rack with 2 sides (baked potato and cole slaw) to go. The cole slaw was just... More
