This place is an institution in the area with good, friendly service and really good BBQ. We go there several times a year when the urge for something smoked hits and I don't have time to do it myself. Never disappointed!

As a "local" I eat here often. They are one of the few places that serves great food late at night. Everything I've had has been great. The waitresses are attentive, outgoing and friendly. Awesome beer selection! Nice architecture too. Karaoke night is sometimes a bit "rough" for my tastes, but there's a marvelous second dining area at the other... More

First, please allow me to say the service top-notch. The BBQ...is "about" average. It's definitely nothing to write home about. I see many people posting it's "awesome", "great", etc. Personally I don't get it, but then again, I've had BBQ in the Carolinas, Georgia, Texas, Memphis, etc. If you aren't used to really good BBQ, I suppose this place isn't...

Short drive from the waterfront - but well worth it - I'd say get the baby back ribs . The warm potato salad is delicious! The staff was super helpful and was very friendly. I wish I could of had a dessert but after the food we were STUFFED- Thanks for the great experience

I love barbecue and this was among the best I have ever had. Period. Everything from the food to the service was excellent, the portions were amazing, the food literally melts in your mouth and leaves you full for days. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

My spouse and I use to frequent this Restaraunt the food was very good. But our last visit wasn't so good. Its great that all the waitresses can write their names upside down (its a gift) but the atmosphere was different more rushed they didnt take time out to tell you about specials and when the our food arrived they...

We visited this place for dinner last month. My initial impression upon reaching the place was how crowded the parking lot was. The inside was just as crowded to we decided to order takeout rather than to eat within the restaurant. Placing the order was easy and our order was ready within minutes. Our order that night was a sample... More

One of the few places that has truly excellent Beef barbecue in the area and also excels with Pork, Sausage and Chicken. Everything is smoked to perfection and melts in the mouth. Truly great.
