Stopped in for lunch yesterday (3rd or 4th visit in the last couple years) and felt compelled to put up a positive review. This is a great-yet-relatively-unknown spot, particularly if you like craft beer. The bartenders are big beer (and football) enthusiasts and they have a great selection of rotating taps from mainly top-shelf New England brewers with some outliers... More

I've tried the highly touted RedBones, in Somerville, and Blue Ribbon BBQ, in Arlington, and this is my fave. I love the Carolina sauce, and the ribs are very lean. Garlic mashed potatoes are excellent, as are the bbq chicken and the catfish. Small menu, very casual atmosphere, good draft beer selection. This place has consistently delicious food & efficient...

Interesting casual atmosphere. Great beer selection. Good service, though a little too speedy (still eating appetizers when entrees brought out). Food was hit or miss. Bison burger, cucumber salad, fried pickles were definite hits. Arizona egg rolls were okay. Turkey tips and garlic mashed potatoes were bland. The corn bread they give you after seating was delicious.

Can't beat this place for lots of great food and beers. Offers a varied menu of traditional barbeque selections, buffalo and burgers. Rustic but fun and a bit noisy if busy.

We met a friend for dinner. Service was not outstanding but not terrible. We were brought corn bread and honey butter but no utensils until we asked. Service was a little slow but it was the height of the dinner rush. There was some confusion on our dinner entrees. Two us had the same thing with slight differences and the... More

Went here for dinner and the food was very good!! And we ordered fried pickles as we saw them on the menu and wanted to try them and they were awesome. Staff was very friendly and had kids items on the menu. Would definitely come back.

Do not miss the Chili Relleno Plate! A grilled chicken & cheese filled, batter dipped, deep fried delight. Served on a bed of Jalapeño Rice, this is the bombdiggity dinner! They are huge and I could only eat one and took one home. The Smoked Wings are BIG and juicy and will be part of my SEC Football Saturdays this... More

I'm from Colorado, and I have to say the bison burgers here are some of the best. Well-cooked to desired temperature and very tasty. I also enjoyed the southern wings, seared over the grill. The beer selection was great as well. Gives me a good taste of home, away from home.

I went here for dinner with one of my girlfriends. Overall I thought it was good, a couple minor issues. First women's bathroom was out of service so we had to share with the men. It was a single stall restroom, and that god it was a slow night otherwise you would have waited in line all night for the... More
