This is a regular spot for my family. The potato skins are a must! The meats are flavorful and tender. Our most recent server/waitress Candice was patient, friendly and awesome!

The server, Cynthia was very friendly and attentive without being pushy. The food was awesome. There were 4 adults and not one person had a single complaint. I ordered a sirloin very well done and it came out perfect for me and still juicy. The...owner came by and introduced himself and asked how everything was. He was very personable. I could find no fault anywhere and I will definitely recommend it to everyone and go backMore

This is the second time we have eaten here in a week. We came back this time to try the Brisket. We are recent transplants from Kansas City and have not found a really good smoked brisket in Orlando. That is, until today. Their brisket...was very tasty and was very much like what we left in K.C. Our server, Carlie was very friendly and extremely efficient. One of the best. We will be back for Prime Rib night next week.More

This location doesn't make you wait -- you can call ahead, which is appreciated. Nice selection of $5 drinks & specialties that aren't overpriced. The potato skins were loaded with cheese, scallions, bacon. My tilapia was just so-so but I was assuming it is meant...for a lighter meal. Other entrees were ample, no problem with heat or lack of spice. Great service, friendly place.More

We were just passing through the area on a road trip and saw this place come up on some searches for restaurants in the area. Decided to check it out based on the numerous positive reviews and we were not disappointed. Christena R. was incredibly...attentive and polite and really set an example of what great service is like. The food was really, really tasty. We were served quickly and each member of our party enjoyed the burger, steak wedge salad and chicken fingers. I would definitely recommend this place if you're in the area and are looking for a great place for a meal.More

Amazing food, amazing service ! We struggle to find places to eat that cater to gluten free as my husband has a gluten allergy. The restaurant even had a gluten free menu, and an extensive one at that! The owner even came out to check...on our experience and thanked us for visiting which is always a great touch. Our server Carly was attentive, friendly and a credit to the restaurant. Oh and if you love bbq...get the ribs and brisket! So good!More

It was great to get out of the house and eat at one of our favorite restaurants. My pulled pork sandwich and grilled asparagus were excellent. My wife enjoyed her grilled chicken sandwich and sweet potato. We both had a traditional mojito. Yum!

Any service dog is welcome is any part of the restaurant. I think pets are only allowed in the outside eating area . . . But I'm not sure.
