We started with a bruschetta that was underwhelming. Tomatoes could have been better, and it needed more onion and basil. Highlights were the smoked sirloin and handmade sausage. Don't bother: house salad, smoked beef and turkey. The ribs were good, the BBQ sauce is thin and vinegary. The Kentucky walnut pie was good as well. We went on a Friday night and the place was hopping with locals having fun, and whooping it up. Not sure I would go back, but it was fun for something different and local.
