Excellent location with ample outdoor patio seating on a busy corner in downtown Greenville. They were very busy and we had to wait quite a while despite having reservations. Presumably this was an unusual night with lots of Clemson parents looking for somewhere to eat. Just as a side note, Greenville has a really nice downtown, which truly surprised me,... More

If you like dry bar-B-Q they got you covered! Like it wet, yup, they got you covered. Sweet too! Every table has their own set of four sauces. The onion rings were so good we ordered them for dessert after having them as an appetizer. A busy place but they get you in and out without hurrying! It's a Greenville... More

Went to this restaurant over the weekend and had a very good meal. Our table had ribs, barbecue pork, and brisket, all of which was very tasty. They have four type of barbecue sauces at the table (two ketchup based and two mustard base) so you could choose the sauce of your liking. The wait was long on a Friday... More

Sat outside at first but couldn't get the flys to go away. They were attracted to the sticky cork on top of the 4 tall sauces that the server brought out. So we moved to a table inside. Food was served fast and is OK, not great. Pricing is average for what you get - $7.95 for beef brisket or... More

We were walking around Charlevoix around lunch with friends visiting. We also had our Havanese dogs with us. Many places outside don't allow dogs; however, they had a large water bowl denoting that dogs were welcome outside. The smoking smell of meats on their smoker/grill waffled up and down the street - a drawing card for any BBQ loving individual.... More

Excellent location with great outdoor seating when weather is good. Great bar to stop by after work or meet friends. Really like their menu. Good comfort food cooked in unique ways. Very reasonable pricing makes it a great downtown spot.

Our first visit into Greenville and this restaurant was one suggested by a guest at our hotel. Two of us enjoyed the Grilled Salmon with a side salad and the other enjoyed sampler of the barbecue with the loaded potato and spinach as sides. The food was delicious and our service was excellent. We went on 8/03/14. We would go... More

Great location in downtown. Noisy inside. Blues duo was playing some tunes. Had the beer can chicken and these loaded mashed potato things which were awesome. Boyfriend had brisket. Said it was delicious. Mac and cheese was awesome and creamed spinach (no joke) was pretty dang delightful. Great food. Go.

My wife and I had a nice lunch here. She had a caesar salad with salmon; I had chicken salad. Both were very good. Service was great. We sat outside on the patio and it was most pleasant.

The pulled pork is great, but the best part of my meal is the loaded potato cake. Do your self a favor and try it. They are the best mashed potatoes made into a pancake form and fried! So good!!! If you get BBQ make sure to ask your server to explain the sauces to you.
