We've eaten here twice and both times the hostess was inconvenienced by us being there, both times our waitress was terrible. (different waitresses) Forgotten items, cold food, waiting a long time for check, never checking back on us. the food was ok-the brisket was delicious though.

We try to make all the buffet dinners during the year...Usually Easter, Mothers Day and Fathers Day. The selection is everything one could ask for. They have a full staff onhand and are always eager to do what the customers want. The other times of the year, we do our level best to partake in various items on the menu....wait,... More

The food is awesome. I go there every chance I can get. I go there about one a week and everything meets expectations as far as the way my steaks are cooked and service

Sublette's fish entrees were what our group came to eat. The restaurant is well lit with many tables and booths available along with a choice to dine in the family room or in the bar. The restaurant doesn't open early but we were able to dine quickly once it opened. As another trip advisor mentioned Sublette's is easy to find... More

Went here over the Memorial Day weekend. They had no ribs left even thought the place was 1/4 full. Everything else was decent, but 3 of our 5 diners meat was a little dry. Green beans were canned with bacon mixed in. Service staff thought it was OK to vacuum and restock tables while people were eating for some reason... More

We went there and of course ordered ribs because that's what they are known for. The ribs were dry and tough and the sauce was horrible that they put on it. My husband had pork chops and those weren't bad but not stellar either. Its just your basic family dining restaurant, nothing special

Service was pathetically slow so I left. Service is not a priority here so if you care for that at all, eat elsewhere. If I ever try their ribs, it'll be take out, but don't count on my business.

Barbecue I could make at home, nice clean atmosphere with thoughtful service. if you want real barbecue and a genuine southern atmosphere with blues and tubs of dipping sauce try South Street Barbecue in Lafayette and skip the Sublette.
