AMAZING BBQ SAUCE AND PERFECTLY SMOKED MEAT! The cole slaw was a delightful surprise as it had a nice Washington twist with an apple flavor to it, and their baked beans were great as well!! We also ordered the crisp for dessert and it was well worth the calories!

We stopped here on the recommendation of a friend. Our arrival at 1:30 on a Sunday afternoon was well-timed-- we seem to have just missed the noon rush. Many tables were being cleared and cleaned, so our wait was minimal. I enjoyed the BBQ brisket sandwich, while my husband had the BBQ Pork sandwich. No complaints on the amount of... More

Best BBQ pork ribs ever. Falls off the bone. The restaurant is decorated very uniquely. We sat out on the patio which is very nice, potato salad excellent, the coleslaw was not to my taste as I was expecting more of a creamy dressing rather then the vinegar type of dressing. I am sure glad we decided to stop on... More

My husband and I, as we often do, decided to stop and have dinner on our way back from a long drive and on our way home to the coast. We have done this many times before. While we enjoy the food, the cost is a consideration. We've always gotten a nice sized portion of meat but the sides (unless... More

Came here by coincidence and stopped as I was hungry. The place was pretty crowded so I hand to wait 10 minutes (Saturday 7PM). It was worth waiting. I had a steak which tasted very good. As I side I took the BBQ beans and they were great. Be sure to try them! I wanted to try the Super Sampler... More

The smoked ribs were very good. You can really taste the smoke, and any sauce is unnecessary. The chili was just OK, too many beans and it could have used the flavor from some smoked meat. The service was too slow. Long wait for menus (I went to the front desk to grab some eventually), and longer wait for water.

This is like an old-fashioned picnic, whether it's served indoors or out (there is a large terrace). The menu has BBQ ribs, baked beans, potato salad, milkshakes and lemonade. The menu has other items as well. I had a steak, but I wasn't as happy with it as those who chose BBQ. However, the mudshark dessert is worth saving space... More

Here is a BBQ place that smokes it meat til the meat doesn't even need the sauce. I had the Brisket sandwich and the portion of brisket is more than what was needed for a meal. The brisket meal was easily a double meal - well worth the price. Atmosphere and service is good - consistently. This is our favorite... More

We really liked the smoky taste and bark of the Brisket, and the tenderness of the pulled pork. Very nice BBQ restaurant with great patio, excellent service, strong menu, nice decor and generous servings. Just slightly west of Olympia, the visit here was completely worth the short, extra drive.
