Nice restaurant

This is downtown restaurant. Only drank there but the food looked good and prices were reasonable. Probably best to go at night when they have live music.

Service was great, Bourbon Barrel Beer outstanding. Brisket sandwich? Well, the brisket was decent but there were about 7 slices on that big kaiser roll. Seriously. But the Grumpy BBQ sauce made it better. Don't think I'll return. Not a good first impression.

Two of us were looking for a bite to eat and gave this place a try. We had a mixed experience. This is a place that is a bit better for drinking than eating. The waitress was friendly and pretty attentive. The restaurant is quite small. Food was ok...Carolina pork was good but the beef brisket was not great. It... More

Had lunch downtown here with a friend. I had a salad which was fresh and loaded with roasted chicken breast. Salad dressings were delish and apparently homemade as well. Prices reasonable and option to sit outside or inside. Loved it!

Bethany was very nice behind the bar. I had the brisket sandwich. Good, not great, small sandwich for $10. Had Cole slaw with it and it was good. Service was good on a early Friday evening.

Been there several times and have always liked what I ordered. Really good bbq, great baked beans. The beans has meat in them, how can that not be good. Pretty small place so it always seems busy.

The helpful staff assists you in deciding what you will enjoy. Try different meats and styles of barbecue. Lots of sides to choose from and great hush puppies. The brisket was tender ( order by my husband). I'm not a fan of brisket but this was fork tender. The pulled pork was wonderful without being overly seasoned or sauced. The... More

I have been twice, several years apart. Other than the hush puppies changing, still great. This is a small venue, so get there early or make reservations. The ribs are to die for. Craft beers that are very delightful. A perfect place to meet friends for a dinner out. The service was wonderful. So good we left double the tip.

The atmosphere was wonderful. Just a small little restaurant. The decor and music were perfect for a "Blues" atmosphere (go figure, right?). The waitress who put my meal together (to-go) was great! Made sure I was taken care of and even wanted to know if I wanted a refill while waiting! Fantastic place! Hope I can dine-in next time.

We have gone here twice. The food is good. Service was a little slow both times especially when sitting outside. Until service improves, there are just too many good places to eat and drink right in town.
