We both had ribs but I paired mine with shrimp and my husband had his with chicken. Ribs were great other stuff was okay. Service was super friendly. Found it a bit expensive for what you get but understand it is a tourist town.

Loved this place. Friendly, sassy waitress. Good bbq, pitchers of beer. The fries were good, too. The ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender. Good value, too.
