We went early to avoid crowds and sat out on the back patio. The patio is lovely and there are lots of large old trees around it. You are looking at the parking lot but the trees make the view nice and it feels peaceful and special. It's easy to hear the conversation with your table and you feel private... More

We came in without any reservations on a Saturday night after spending the day at Great Escape. We were seated within fifteen minutes at an outdoor table. Very relaxed atmosphere with live entertainment. Our dinner was delicious and staff was great! Definitely going back next year.

Had lunch here with family last month. My first visit to a proper American BBQ restaurant and enjoyed it a lot. I had the combo, good ribs and brisket, maybe a little sweet for me but still. American family we were with agreed it was good BBQ. Reasonably priced for a tourist town I thought.

Very good ribs, and a rack that was falling off both sides of a large plate. I asked for extra crispy fries, didn't happen, but with the size of the rack of ribs, I really couldn't eat many fries anyway. Cole slaw was also very tasty. (The beer could have been colder. Not warm by any means, but in August... More

Had to wait for a table of 5. Their entrance, bar, waiting area is tiny. It gets hot and crowded if you have to wait. It was raining out so outdoor seating was limited. Once we seated outside under an awning, the large group behind us was so close it was noisy and the kids kept going around their table... More
