I really like this place! I have tried salmon,mahi,ribs,brisket and chicken. I also understand they have BBQ beef ribs,too! The salads and the Caesar dressing is truly good as is their bread and corn bread with honey butter or regular butter. I know from what my Aunt used to say that if thesis as taste good they are taking good... More

We arrived around 5:30 pm. The menu has a great variety for the hearty appetite as well as the small. All of our meals arrived promptly and... More

The bar service is excellent - great martinis at a good price. You cannot beat their pork ribs - the meat falls off of the bone. Very meaty with no fat. They also serve catfish or cod plus briskets and chicken if you are not a 'rib' eater. Their 'fixins' are great too such as BBQ beans, coleslaw, sweet potato... More

One of the few places in town to get BBQ. Large portions. Go for the ribs. Corn bread is awesome. Very casual. Nice outdoor seating.

You can tell by the giant trophy on the counter you are in for some excellent barbeque! This is a popular place with the local crowd. If there is a wait, you will get an accurate estimate of the wait time and an electronic device which will light up and buzz when your table is ready. The wait is never... More

I love BBQ and having just moved into this neighborhood was really excited about having this place close to home...walking distance. So was sadly disappointed when I received the combo platter of their pork & beef ribs. Neither had much flavor and the beef was overly fatty. The only really solid flavor was their BBQ sauce, but that should be... More
