To begin, my boyfriend and I sat at a crowded bar and it took a bartender several minutes to bring us a menu. So once we receive the menu, we did not know it was family style and the bartender seemed irritated. We ordered our food waited and then we had to flag down another bartender to order our drinks....

I ate at this restaurant while visiting Atlantis last night - 7/5/14. The ribs were very good but more bone than meat. The pork ribs were excellent though and Virgil's BBQ Sauce is excellent. Also ordered a side dish of grilled vegetables. This was the biggest potpourri of vegetables I've ever seen -- grilled without any seasoning or olive oil!... More

I mean there were two of us and how many twosomes can eat 12 pieces of chicken on top of a... More

You must make a reservation for this restaurant. Like all on-property restaurants that require reservations, if you do not show up or do not cancel your reservation within the required 3 or 4-hour window (my memory fails me whether it's 3 or 4 hours), you will be charged $200. This is clearly stated when you make a reservation. We were... More

The bbq is decent. Not amazing. The service is okay. The portions are huge. Get half or share with a friend. My youngest son and I shared the fried chicken. Good but, lots of breading. Mac n cheese, delish. Gravy n potatoes, good. Pulled pork, spicy, savory. I give the place a 5 out of 10. We'll probably go back.

Let's start by saying, We only like white meat, so when our chicken dish came out it was mostly dark meat...very disappointed and they wouldn't exchange it for mostly white meat, next time put the wording on the menu so that we know...We also ordered ribs which were very good.
