Great BBQ Pork Ribs - St. Louis style

The BBQ had been teasing us every day while going by the corner of RT 100 and RT 17. We were like moths to a flame, drawn. We were greeted by a smiling 18 year old that was happy with her job and answered most of our questions. When quizzed on beer she admitted that she couldn't drink yet so... read more

Used it for take out-- the BBQ was fantastic and the grilled veggies were a great counterpoint. Bartender is a friendly character.

Laid back atmosphere and absolutely outstanding BBQ. The ribs were moist and generous. I could not comfortably finish a half-rack, so shared with my friend who had only ordered a quarter-rack. Good choices of sides. I heartily recommend their coleslaw. We were there on a Wednesday night, and the special was some kind of drumsticks (sorry, can't remember) which were... More

We ended up at the "Smokehouse" on the recommendation of another local restaurant. On Saturday night at 6:30 (Ski season)waiting time for a table was 45 mins., so we had dinner at the bar. The bar/restaurant is good size, the atmosphere is simple, very rustic..the patrons looked like primarily locals. The food was very good - I had a half... More

Great place to get BBQ and a beer or music, food and drinks later. They have a spread of BBQ sauces to try which I enjoyed with the pulled pork. There was other food if BBQ isn't your thing. They have live bands there and an open mic night there for those who think they have talent. Definitely a local... More

Always watch the Superbowl here.A partisan crowd if any East coast team make it, which makes for a good atmosphere. Great choice of beers and food (And plenty of it, try sharing the nachos). Warm and friendly.

I grew up in the Mad River Valley and this bar/restaurant has been around since the 70's and has changed names a few times. I used to frequent it when it was called Moose Lips back in the day. Years later it became the Mad Mountain Tavern and was one of the most popular bar and restaurants in the valley...it... More

First place we went to in Mad River and it was good. Great food at a great price. Definitely less expensive and fancy than some of the other places, this places serves up a good bite that won't break the wallet
