Average food - good ambiance

This is the second time we have tried this restaurant as we were traveling in the area and my husband and son both like good BBQ. The food is average. There are a lot of items on the menu that you wouldn't find anywhere else, like tomato salad and deviled eggs, but the flavor of the food is just... read more

The service tonight was absolutely horrid. The waiter joked about how he takes forever and he held true to that. He cane out once and said "Oh you need biscuits". 25 minutes kater he comes back with our food and says "where are your biscuits?". That my good sir is a good question. We had finished our drinks before the... More

Nice looking place. But every time the place has many empty seats. Hostess is trained to say 20 -30 minute wait. Obviously trying to get you to buy alcohol. So if you come plan on no quick trip. It will be a wait

The good; Upon entering the aroma of bbq is fantastic and the atmosphere is nostalgic and very cool. Our waitress "Ryan" was very friendly, upbeat and attentive to our group of eleven and she was kind enough to even split our bill. The bad; Our table was so warped you had to set your drink down three times to find... More

I have never had WORSE SERVICE in my life. I had a reservation and it took ten minutes from walking in the door to get the table because they didn't have it ready. After twenty minutes at the table we only had two drinks for seven people. Multiple tables got sat after us and left before us. It took and... More

I have visited this restaurant about 6 times in the past. The food has always been good however, I feel the owners should consider changing the menu or offer specials. The same meat selections become boring and the side selections are not always from the freshest ingredients (not sure if the grilled vegetables were canned or frozen). The waitress assured... More

I usually go here and never have a complaint! But the last time we went -- um forget it! The server was not very friendly at all -- her personality was like that of a wet noodle. We ordered and our food was not hot, it was luke warm. My daughters had chicken fingers and they were discolored and rubbery... More

The food was amazing and the portions were huge! The restaurant itself was clean and the decor was awesome! We live 45 minutes away and would drive back just for their food. Go. ... you will not be disappointed!
