Extremely delicious ribs and brisket, plus great sausages. The deep fried cream corn is surprising and great to share. Local brew pub beers are available and there is a secluded back deck for the nice days. Very rustic old-charm pub. The place will be under...More

Love this place. The food is wonderful. Today we split a two meat combo, with tasty turkey and a wonderful smoked sausage. We had sides of baked beans, potato salad and coleslaw. All were good, but the first two were especially praiseworthy. Our favorite was...More
