My wife and I came here for dinner based on the recommendation of a friend. We both ordered ribs and were disappointed. They had some strong spices in the BBQ sauce that we did not like. I realize that different people like different spices. This just did not work for us. Service was good and the place is nice, but... More

Maybe the best ribs ever! Atmosphere makes the great food even better with wonderful service by Robin. Fresh veggies and bourbon mashed sweet potatoes made excellent sides.

When you've been seated for dinner and your shoes stick to the floor, there's definitely something wrong with cleanliness. It ruins your appetite, too. We didn't stay and we won't be back. Not impressed - !!!

Wednesday night, just a few other tables occupied. Live music was enjoyable while we dined. Waitress was GREAT, helped us with menu, made suggestions, very attentive. She even gave us a tour of the property after our meal, which was above and beyond her duty. She told us all about this fascinating property and you MUST see it to believe... More

First off - you are coming to this $38-million, 6.5-acre, architectural masterpiece....and then for the food and drinks. Every piece of furniture and interior trim is hand-made in USA, while no expense was spared in building what was Babe's BBQ/Marie Callender's founder Don Callender's ultimate dream. It's a shame he never reveled in his work, as he passed away on... More

The spareribs were excellent. I'd like to suggest healthier sides. We enjoy the music; however, it is so loud that carrying on a table conversation is impossible. Thank you.

We had this place recommended to us by a friend and decided to give it a try on our last visit. We were there in late June, so the temps were really high. We sat outside and were very comfortable. Misters around the patio area were great. The outdoors is beautifully landscaped, waterfalls lit nicely at night. The BBQ was... More

This restaurant was designed to be a Babe's Barbecue restaurant but changed hands after construction. It has the look of a Babe's, but a different menu. The service was excellent. The food was good quality. We sat on the back patio to enjoy the fountain and pleasant mid April weather. There is quiet background music and many shaded tables.

We found the restraint very attractive. It was very busy and so was quite noisy. Not a good place for a quiet dinner. The prices were a little high and the service a little slow.
