Read the description in our hotel's book and it sounded fabulous- organic, healthful focus, housemade & margaritas. The woodsmoke aroma outside was amazing & the front room was full. Our extremely pleasant waitress showed us into a cold and lonely adjacent room with no atmosphere or people besides us. I ordered the half brisket sandwich and potato salad thinking anyplace that offers half sandwiches usually does so because their regular portions are huge. Nope. $7.95 for a half a Costco ciabatta roll with about 3 tablespoons of bland and somewhat fatty brisket. Without the unremarkable BBQ sauce added on top it would have been a tasteless sandwich. The extra $2 for the side order of mac & cheese was a waste. It is best summed up as icky and was lukewarm and oily as well. The margarita had no discernable tequila in it. On the upside, they had good local-ish beer, the pickles were awesome, the milk was organic and only $1, and the staff couldn't have been any nicer. $45 for a kid's half brat, and 1 1/2 brisket sandwiches, a beer, a milk & a margarita was a bit much for the overall lack of quality. :-(
