Not a Barbeque Fan - Still Love It

I don't like barbeque but my friends and family do. I usually get a salad when we go here. The restaurant recently moved to a new location near the liftbridge and I must say it is absolutely amazing.

Tasty food combined with a fun, relaxed environment and great service! All the meat is smoked in the back, and you can enjoy local beers and the tasty smell of your cooking meal while you wait!

This restaurant was really good. The chicken was great. The cornbread was moist and many varieties of sauce to put on your pork, chicken or beef. My husband was amazed at the brisquette.

My friends and I went here for dinner. Staff was friendly and the portions huge. The jalapeno cornbread wasn't too spicy, even for me. (I don't like spicy.) I had the 3 meat platter. Two of the three meats were the best I've ever had, and the pork wasn't bad but just too much. The baked apples were great the... More
