This restaurant had a great atmosphere and delicious food. The reason for the average review was the very high prices for the amount of food given. I felt the portions were very small for what was charged and I left there hungry. The brisket was really good but I will not go back. It was extremely crowded so I don't... More

Decided to go here based on a search for places with music, bbq, where I could take my 17 yo daughter, not far from Ocean City.

The menu is barbecue centered, but there is something for everyone - from Steaks to salads. But if you like barbecue try one of their BBQ... More

No one was impressed with the soups served as they were a bit bland and boring. My pulled pork was extremely dry and not very enjoyable to chew... More

Awesome spot anytime of year, but truly enjoy the atmosphere in the middle of winter! The fire place heats up the whole place as you enjoy the flights of premium bourbon. Great place to be when the weather turns cold!

Have not eaten here in a long while, because everything is so salty. I sort of forgot how bad it was. The only reason we go is the nice bar area with a fireplace and live entertainment. My friends didn't eat, except for sharing my basket of cornbread. I decided to order a sausage and brisket combo, with collards and... More

The restaurant is nice, attractive and the menu is okay. There is nothing to be excited about. The place is just average. Nothing really bad (except noise level) but nothing really good either. Just Average
