We had my dad a birthday dinner here, and the accommodations and service were exceptional! The deposit was $50 to book the party room, and they had balloons for us at no extra charge! We had a party of approx 30-40 and the waitress handled our order efficiently and accurately! We ordered the fried pickle app and liked it so... More

Have been here on a few occasions, and have never been overly impressed. After eating at some truly wonderful barbecue restaurants (Ridgewood barbecue, for example), Pratt's is just mediocre. The service has never been anything special either.
