We joined friends at this restaurant over the weekend. It was their 3rd visit and our 1st. My husband enjoyed the smokehouse sampler of brisket, ribs, and pulled pork. I had the filet. My husband thought his food was excellent. I thought my filet was good...but was on the small side and my "plate" presentation was a mess....I found it to be tossed together. Mashed potatoes out numbered the filet. I would suggest mashed sweet potatoes instead and a better vegetable than broccoli. Perhaps asparagus? As for my hubby's plate. I thought the brisket was dry and needed some "spice", I thought I made a better pulled pork from our summer visit to Nags Head. The ribns I would agree with my husband were tasty and when we return I will venture to the ribs or perhaps one of their "burgers" that they rave about.
My observation overall was that this restaurante has the potential of being a success, but we fear has to be losing money by the lack of attention to detail by the servers at the bar and in the dining room. Drink refills make the money in the area alcohol and we observed a lot of "waiting" for a refill. It also appeared that this place was over-staffed. However, we would return to explore the menu and perhaps if was just an off night.
