We stopped here on our way from Mobile to Destin. My husband & kids loved the pork balls appetizer. Barbecue was great. Wished there were more choices in BBQ sauces. I didn't care for the house sauce & would have liked something a little sweeter & less tomato-tasting. Same with the baked beans. We sat outside & it was a... More

As a visitor to the USA we thought we would try southern barbecue food for a change, definitely not disappointed, the quality of the food, the taste and the service was good. Better than some restaurants we had tried locally. Several nights of the week they also provide music, so if you want a good night out check their website.... More

Been here twice and enjoyed it both times. Each time we sat outside...love the view looking out at the bay. There was a band playing while we were there and they were pretty good. I had the ribeye with baked potato both times I've gone and It was very good. The second time we went the service seemed a little... More

Love this local restaurant . Features fantastic smoked and cooked on site. The big porker BarBQ is my favorite. Sides are excellent . Eat inside and outside. Kids are very welcome. Service is a little slow at times but if you need to be out quickly just let them know. The ice is the tiny type that is really special.

We were in the mood for something besides fried seafood so we chose to eat here because it was close by and had a nice view. It had just rained and they weren't able to seat us outside but we did get a window seat with a nice view. My husband and I ordered the nachos appetizer and a huge... More

Our experience was terrible and I was too afraid to even eat the food! I am gluten intolerant and normally BBQ restaurants are a safe haven since they have ample smoked and grilled meats. I asked our waitress (which seemed upset we were even asking questions about the menu vs ordering) if the dirty rice is GF. She SNAPPED that... More
