Food was amazing! Burger done right, big chunky slabs of beef and one of the best tasting Mac and cheese. They let themselves down a touch on the service. Waiters and Waitresses were superb however burger came out with sauce after ordering without. They acknowledged...this no problem but when came back from kitchen it was the same burger with just the sauce scraped off and so obviously you could still taste it! Waiters were not to know but obviously kitchen thinks it can cut corners when they make mistakes. They also charged 2 bottles of 7up for 2 very small as requested tops on lager when this would easilly have only needed 1 bottleMore

Nothing more I can say really. Waited a long time for a distinctively average meal. Portions small and mediocre food. Wouldn’t recommend.

We arrived after reserving a table for a Birthday dinner. When we arrived, the place was suspiciously empty on a Saturday evening, and then we realized why. The waitress had told us that they were out of beef, so the classic BBQ foods (for which...we came) were not served. We quickly left, and had to find a new place to celebrate the birthday.More

Excellent service from Bori our waitress. She helped our large group to find a suitable table and accommodated members arriving at different times making the ordering complicated. Great food at a reasonable price - my favourite was the ‘Almost Heaven’ slow cooked steak. 😄👍🏻More

The place is very nice, however the parking is quite difficult. Of course it is not the restaurant's fault. The staff was friendly and helpful. The chilli con carne wasn't too spicy but it was a little bit too greasy. The ribs were very tasty,...I recommend it!! According to my dad, the steak was also delicious! Order lemonades!!! They are sooo good! However, I did not love the desserts.More

I was expecting much when I walked into here but only to be disappointed with everything besides the time of food delivery. They serve the food on plates of paper which is normal for a bbq place but the food wasn’t that authentic. I ordered...the Smoked Ham sandwich thinking that it was going to be a hot sandwich but the meat was served cold and the swiss cheese was cold as well. The ham had huge ribbons of fat going through it like you are eating raw American style bacon and nobody wants to eat that. I sent it back besides its confusing to come into an American style barbeque place and be served cold meat, how does that make sense? They should atleast state that on the menu, I’m sure a lot of people get confused. Smoked meat isn’t served cold like that, and I’m an American, I know. I switched it for a pulled pork sandwich which was supposed ot have coleslaw on the bun but it didn’t because the chef forgot. The pork had chunks of hard meat in it, it wasn’t soft pulled pork like it should be, more like yesterday’s leftovers on a Friday night at 8:00 pm, but how? It’s been reheated over-and-over too many times and it’s dried out. The waitress walked by my table twice before I stopped her on her third try to take my money for the bill and she rebuffed saying it wasn’t for her. Honey, just take the money and give it to whomever then, always be prepared to serve every table if a customer needs something yeah? If you sit in one of the corners you will wait forever for the little things. The only thing that was fast was the kitchen waiter coming out with the pre-made, (not made-to-order) food. I won’t go here again, it’s over-priced for slop, it’s a tourist trap and I don’t recommend it. Big thumbs down.More

The restaurant is nicely decorated and the atmosphere is cozy. The staff was quick and friendly. The food came quickly and was absolutely delicious, ribs falling off the bone and chicken smokey, fried potatoes hot and salty, coleslaw average. Portions big and prices fair. All...in all, would definitely visit again.More
