“Impeccable service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

There are 4 restaurants in Corning that serve BBQ. This is by far the best. The appetizers are delicious...try their signature ones. They have a great beer selection..many are from the area and it's great to see they promote other local endeavors. We like to sit in the bar section and we always have had impeccable service. The mounted guitars give it a fun atmosphere. The owners have always been there when we have eaten here...this tells me that they are truly dedicated to their business. The side dishes are a meal in itself. Affordable selections and lots of options...you will not be disappointed.

“Bad Food Bad Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Pork was dry and had no flavor, the brisket was more like a roast, the slaw was good, but everything else was bad even the service the waitress was talking with each other the whole time we were there we were never asked for a refill on drink, will never go back.

“Guitars and Show Tickets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

What would you do if you worked in Music Radio for years? Retire to upstate NY and open a bar. High above the bar, mounted on the wall are over a dozen signed guitars and if the owner is in he will share the stories behind them. Also, dozens of tickets and back stage passes to show are laid out under the glass of this bar. The food is reasonably priced, we only had wings (both Chicken and Hawg) but they were great the BBQ sauce on the Hawg wing was really special. This place should be rated way above other places in town.

“Fun atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We hesitated to enter this restaurant since it appeared empty on a Friday night but their secret is in the upstairs dining room. The atmosphere was fun, upbeat and electric. It was an affordable dinner with outstanding service and great menu options - slim picks for vegetarians but options were there and substitutions were accommodated.

There were 9 adults and one infant in our group for lunch on the 9th of March. The service was fantastic and the food was great. Not one complaint from any of us.
