On my 2d visit to this eatery, I indulged in their fabulous hushpuppies...better than any I've eaten in their home South. Unfortunately 9/28/13 was their last day.

Such a nice surprise. I had the smoked chicken sandwich with the homemade the house sauce "Ghost Pepper" yum, yum. The Hush Puppies are second to none and very tasty. I'm not a big coleslaw but it's obvious the small staff make their slaw with luv and fresh garden ingredients. Check out their giant Jalapeno Poppers wrapped in bacon...amazing! I... More

Staff was attentive and kind! The food was wonderful. Hushpuppies fresh, cole slaw was wonderful fresh from the garden cabbage. The beef brisket was like meat candy! Highly recommend

Was fine for lunch. They expected a large party so we sat on the patio. Said patio is somewhere between the trash and the latrine in an alley with no view. Food was good nothing to write home about.

No view but food is great, five different sauces, got the pulled pork and the ribs, excellent food, if you are coming by boat wait before eating, the times they are not busy for dinner is between 4:45-6. We got there and had the place to ourselves. Food is great, service is very good.

We had our dog with us when we came upon this place and decided we were hungry so we had to order it to go. They did a very good job of including everything we would need and gave us small samples of all the sauces. The brisket was really good, the hush puppies just so so. My favorite was... More

We went whale watching and stopped here for lunch. We ordered some pulled pork sandwiches that were great! They also have a cool outdoor patio area to eat. I would def stop here if you are looking for BBQ!

Definitely get some hush puppies - they were delicious in the true Southern style! My BBQ chicken sandwich came with a very generous portion of meat and was yummy. Pulled pork was good too. The 6-pack of BBQ sauces offers something for every taste. Some have a delayed heat so if you're sensitive, take a small taste before burying your... More

This was without a doubt some of the finest barbecue I've ever had! First off the service is amazing. I got there pretty much after closing and they still served me wonderful food with a smile on their face. This is a lovely little place with a Southern barbecue shack style. Light and enjoyable atmosphere. I ordered the two meat... More
