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

The food quality has gone way down. Was a huge fan and it just kept getting worse. Also prices went up and portions went down so the value was not even there anymore. This had to get cut from our usual date night. Sorry.

Went with a group of 6 people to have dinner before attending another local event. Upon arrival, were seated promptly. Our waitress brought a basket of hot biscuits, delicious! One guest ordered the prime rib and said it was prepared the way he likes it. Another guest had one of the evening specials, the barbecue platter with brisket, pulled pork,... More
