“Food still good service is terrible”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

This was our favorite place in town to eat. BBQ salad always good...still is. Ribs are ok. Love sitting out and enjoying the evening in a pleasant environment. The wait staff leave a lot to be desired, which makes you not want to go. I don't know if they are not trained or just don't care. Still enjoy the food, just wonder what issue is going to occur on the next visit. Go for the food...4 star rating, expect issues with the service. Cheers.

“Southern BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Wonderful atmosphere in downtown historic building. Good BBQ & good service. Parking could be troublesome due to downtown location. Probably best BBQ in Montgomery.

“Tough to live up to Tuscaloosa's restaurant.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

BBQ is like lots of things: you probably have a "fave" against which others are measured. The BBQ at the original Dreamland in Tuscaloosa is fantastic and my all-time favorite. This restaurant in Montgomery just doesn't live up. Last time there it was a little dry and disappointing. Great location, though,in middle of downtown Montgomery's new Alley area.

“Good Eats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

I have eaten at Dreamland several times and have never been disappointed. The service is great and the food is yummy. If you enjoy barbeque, go to Dreamland!

“Great barbeque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

The barbeque was great here. There was a limited menu consisting of every type of barbeque (chicken, sliced pork, pulled pork, ribs) but if you like barbeque it was great. The atmosphere was laid back and the place was packed.
