Good food but ......

We ate here 2 years ago and loved it; this time not so much. Our server was lovely and pleasant as was the hostess, but i started to notice the cleanliness or lack thereof. The carpet is awful, as can be seen by the contrast of the main floor compared to next to the tables where no one walks... read more

Had a fantastic StLouie Full rack of ribs with good coleslaw, beans and cornbread. Also had excellent steamed cinnamon apples. We were in a bit of a rush, but this place was great for the short time that we were there.

WE're always hungry for babr b que so, having driven past this restaurant numerous times, we decided to give it a try. It looks good from the outside but BEWARE. It is tacky inside. When we saw the soiled carpet, we should have left. When we stood at the sign in desk and the manager was complaining about an employee,... More

Food was cold, service slow and broccoli was hard. Only good thing were the baked beans. Waitress handed us our bill and walked away. Didn't ask if we wanted anything else, like coffee or dessert. This was the 2nd time we went there .... Never again.

This place really went down hill since we last ate here. The food was terrible and the service was horrible. My food was sitting on the table for ten minutes until they were able to get me a fork. The waitress was not to be found and it took us 15 minutes to get the check. My wife had to... More

Overpriced and dirty. Corn bread was cold, meats were chewy with not even a TRACE of smoke flavor. Worst brisket ever. Pork BBQ tasted like mush. They should have paid us to eat there. On the positive side, the waitress was quick, attentive and pleasant. The exterior was inviting, but at the end of the day you can't shine a... More

We went to Big Daddy's for convenience. We were staying in the Comfort Inn behind it. It is open and rustic. The décor is a little strange like it is not quite finished. Bar area is old and beat-up but not dirty or smelly. Food was okay. Beans and sauce are too sweet for my personal taste but if your... More

Admittedly we were looking for a different restaurant named big Daddy's that apparently is no more. But decided to stay. We did not have BBQ, but fried foods and burgers. All food was ok for what it was. Service was unfortunately slow. Was nearly an hour from time we sat down til we got our main course. Wasn't particularly crowded... More

Seems like a fun place to hang out, drink and dine, and with that in mind, the food doesn't need to be spectacular, and it wasn't. French onion soup not so french, and the ribs where a bit disappointing and a little pricey....actually, mine are better! Have had better BBQ but they have games and stuff to keep kids (and... More

We decided to try this restaurant strictly because if the outside. Looked like a fun, inviting place. Upon entering, we were very disappointed. My husband said, "this is the perfect place for the tv show, Restaurant Makeover! Inside does it match the inviting facade... We didn't expect much but we ended up being pleasantly surprised by the food. I had... More
