We went for the crab legs, shrimp, lobster, sausage and corn night. The setting is casual. The service was great. The owner Aaron Robins, stopped by to say hello. It was our first visit to this fun restaurat.

That's because you can't find any parking during regular hours. Tried the fried macaroni and cheese, grilled brisket and cheese sandwich and hamburger. Great drink selection and some great wines. Happening place after a show. Loud and lively. Service just OK.

Came with family members and had a fun and delicious meal. Their sweet potato fries were great as was their burgers.

If you enjoy delicious BBQ meats, come here. Every visit reminds me why I always come back. You can't pick something off their menu and not like it. (vegans need not apply) Good portion size, excellent sides (the dill cole slaw is my favorite), downhome decadent desserts and a drink menu that is pretty darn expansive with whiskeys, beers, wines..something...

We went for a casual meal, so we decided to try the BBQ here. I must admit that when we looked at the menu, we were taken aback by the prices. Fortunately, the food was good.

This place is just average. Good location, parking not easy but there is valet. I ate here once before and complained about the wait and I hardly ever complain. That time I called the manager over and complained. He wasn't a bit helpful. I thought then I might never come back, but I did. The barbeque is just average. The... More

Best bbq and bar menu in the Valley...the 3-way meat platter with pulled chicken, pulled pork and sausage is nothing short of excellent. An occasional add-in of brisket or tri-tip isn't a bad choice at all. Have eaten here plenty of times and always look forward to returning. A fun cocktail list, and a great beer selection to boot!!

And this may be the reason for our only ok experience, since BBQ is what this restaurant is famous for. Men had OMG burgers, which were good. We shared an order of onion rings and these were only ok, but the spicy dipping sauce was good. My shrimp tacos were all shredded cabbage with a few small breaded shrimp. Not... More

A BBQ place needs a Star, and that should always be the meat. The Staff is very nice and attentive, the side was excellent and the 25 taps were great. Then came the Pulled Pork sandwhich. The Bun was nice, the sauce was okay, and the Star the Pulled pork was dry and had no flavor. Remember it all about... More
