Trimmed Down Cracker Barrel

Think Cracker Barrel without the store, but with better food and friendlier service. The fried catfish, boiled redskin potatoes, and garden salad reminded me of family meals growing up.

Just ate at Sibley's, but was disappointed. We thought the BBQ was okay, but the Hush Puppies were oily. We've had better elsewhere. We will not return!

We stopped here at random as we drove by. One of their daily specials was " Rockfish ". Rockfish is a great fish and just happens to be in-season this time of year, so I jumped on it and looked forward to it. Unfortunately they chose to create 1" by 4 " prices of filet ( almost like " fish... More

I love this BBQ -- I'm from Georgia, and they don't have vinegar-based BBQ sauce like some other restaurants here, so that makes me happy. The prices are great and so are their side dishes. Got to love fried okra! Yum!

It's aw quick place to grab lunch to go. BBQ isn't fantastic, but they have great corn fritters and side dishes. Quick service.

Sibley's has good Bar-B-Q. I would not say it is the best I have eaten. I would not advise the buffet because it is not kept fresh all the time.

Something about this place has had me going to it monthly for three years. Cheap Carolina style pulled pork BBQ with the best tater salad south north of Georgia! I just want to eat it all the time but the belt won't let me.

Have been there many times at lunch. I like to support locally owned small business,and here is a gem that takes no effort. Food is very good,especially the BBQ. Staff is friendly and service is quick. Prices are very reasonable. The lunch platter with BBQ sandwich, 2 sides and a drink is a deal and costs less than the large... More

Saw this place on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. Sure glad I did best BBQ I have had. This was my first time in this area and I was looking for something different. The wait staff also was outstanding great friendly service.

Went to the counter to take out a late lunch at 3 pm and head back to the office. I had to wait on a salesman trying to sell things at the counter...then I ran into someone I know who was also waiting to order. I was in a huge hurry...had to get back. He took the other order...she was... More
