Decent Food

My wife and I ate at the Center Street Smokehouse. I had a 1/2 rack of ribs and my wife had a Sirloin Steak Special. The food was OK. Nothing special. The ribs could have been from any other Rib Place. My wife's steak was large, tasteful but again nothing to make it stand out. Service was... read 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!

My family and I have dined here every time we visit Palm Island Waterpark. The food here is delicious! I love the pulled pork and the rotisserie chicken. The sides are tasty also. I definitely recommend the Center Street Smokehouse.

This was a nice meal, we got a deal on Groupon and the staff wasgreat, we had a nice waitress who was on top of everything and didn't give us "the look" when she saw the groupon. We had a good meal and even better drinks! The environment was friendly for family, couples, and singles. They had a nice little... More

I moved from Western New York to Atlanta, GA 2 years ago. I had always heard about southern bbq and how good it was but nothing here compares to this place. We ate there 4-5 times per year and visit every time we go up north. Best BBQ I've had!!!

Ribs were over smokey and tasteless. There were very few customers yet our dinner was slow being served. Waitress was pleasant. We ate entire meal with our coats zipped up and our scarves on as it was freezing inside. I had eaten lunch here several years ago and was pleased. Won't be back again.

As a native Batvian I was thrilled that the Batavia Times building would live on. I would like to report that the experience at this restaurant was less than stellar. The concept is good. It should be a great place to meet friends for dinner. There is a lack of attention by the wait staff. The quality of food has... More

We have come multiple times during the summer, and food was excellent. Our trip out this weekend was lackluster to say the least. Our sever, Alice seemed more interested in other things than actually taking care of us. We asked for more bread multiple times before it was brought to the table, just a bad attitude over all. Makes me... More
