This restaurant closed last year. It was not terrible and I ate there on a regular basis. Please take this restaurant off the list of Palmetto's restaurants. It is missed but it is gone.

The most tender ribs we've sampled. Don't pass up the collard greens - it was our first time and we loved them!

We were taken out by a business colleague for a quick lunch. The service was top notch, the waitress came right back with our drinks. I enjoyed their BBQ chicken and the home made potato salad. Everything is made fresh and the result was a delicious lunch.

Stopped in on a Monday afternoon with two other couples on the return leg of a road trip. We were all pretty hungry. Meals ordered ranged from burgers to chicken to ribs. Everyone thouroughly enjoyed their meals. Tender ribs did not even need the BBQ sauce; tasted great straight from the smoker. Fresh cornbread was also delicious, black beans and... More

Food is good for the most part. The food is a bit expensive and portions could be bigger.

The food was good and reasonable priced (one person in our group couldn't stop raving about the baby back ribs) but the service was disappointing. My husband ordered the 'all you can eat' & the server never came back to see if he wanted more. We had to track someone down to ask for a second helping & to get... More
