Good food, friendly service at a reasonable price for a small town. There is a nice view of the creek and very family friendly.

this was not the worst food in Maggie Valley that we ate, but for a Carolina barbeque, this certainly was not good BBQ. The meat was very, very tough and tasteless.

This used to be a great restaurant a few years ago, but my husband and I ate there last night and the food was horrible! The ribs were chewy, dry and very over cooked, the potato salad was just cold mashed potatoes-GROSS! And it was way over priced, we will never go back there and we are locals :(

I'm sorry to say the food here is absolutely not good! My ribs were literally bone and crunchy skin- no meat on them at all. My moms pork sandwich looked like a strange gray processed substance out of a can- maybe deviled ham. It's an extremely casual place where you order at the counter and then they bring it to... More

I wish I had listened to the bad reviews. I'm 54 years old and this the first time I actually feel like I wasted my money in a restaurant. I would've gotten more enjoyment out of throwing the money in the creek and watching it go downstream. We both got the pork dinner. It was a gray and tasteless meat.... More

I have been to probably fifty BBQ joints in the Carolinas and this was one of the worst. The beans tasted from the can, slaw was basically big pieces cabbage with vinegar, fried corn was really crust on cob no seasoning, fries good, the pulled pork was cooked well and so were the ribs but the ribs were very fatty...
