Food is always great. Local ownership takes pride in their product. Reuben sandwich for lunch is to die for.

Everything we had here was great. Brisket was tender and all the sides were great among our party. Great place to go rather than the usual chain restaurants.

We were stopping overnight in Chillicothe on our way home from Raleigh to Chicago. Both Trip Advisor and our hotel clerk recommended this restaurant, and it was very good. The food and the service were both wonderful, but since we were there on a Monday night! the place was empty for the most part, so the atmosphere/ambience were non-existent. But... More

This place has by far the best smoked beef brisket I have ever had. The restaurant is set up into several small rooms with a larger room at the bar area and a couple of larger rooms upstairs for groups. The outdoor covered patio is great if you want to observe the traffic on Water Street which was many, many... More

The food and beer was of good quality. An average restaurant made a little better by the lovely covered terrace at the front.

Second time we have stopped here when traveling through Ohio. We opted for a take-out meal back to our hotel because we were drained after driving all day. While waiting, we each had a unique craft beer served by a very attentive bar tender who also took care of ordering our meals. Superb barbecue with excellent sides. Eat on the... More

We ate on the patio and the ceiling fans helped keep the area cooled. It was 86 degrees outside when we ate there. Wonderful pulled pork and beef brisket combo plate with 2 sides was more than enough for one person. It was so good though, that we cleaned our plates. The sweet-potato tater tots (side) were so good -... More

Best BBQ I have ever had! Baby backs were fall apart tender, pork and corn casserole are amazing too. Love the outside dining area, service was excellent as well. Will definately be making the hour drive down here again!
