We went there with friends from Roswell. Great BBQ. We had the beef ribs which were so tender they were like a (good) pot roast. Service was great. While I don't usually focus on things like this in reviews, the bathrooms were spotless and really nice!

This was my second time at this restaurant. The last time was 13yrs ago as they had the same singing group there and it was a special anniversary to celebrate our first date. I was impressed with the customer service especially at a BBQ restaurant. They were nice and courteous, timely, and helpful. They did a great job getting us... More

This is an upscale barbecue restaurant. Definitely not a fast food BBQ place. Food is well prepared, and a bit extra. Sides are also very good, and not the run of the mill usual.

Not much of an ambiance, still welcoming and clean. Decent service. Ribs very good, the salad spectacular. No wine. I do recommend, best ribs in town. Skip the new place that just opened on Canton street. Smaller portions and more expensive...can't go wrong eating at the swallow at the hollow!

Nothing fancy here. Not the building, not the furniture, not the silverware, not the dishes, not even the wait staff... However, the chopped pork was very good, the Mac n Cheese was great. A rough diamond in the rough. Would visit again.

Known of S@tH for years, excited to finally try it out. Disappointed in food! :( Ribs were eh; they over lathered them with sauce, felt like I was eating sauce instead of ribs. Smoked wings were the same. Large portions for sides. At 7pm, they were already out of two food options on the menu. Be prepared - the a/c... More

This place is terrible! Everything from the hostess, bartenders, our waiter, and the food were all terrible! My family and I went here on 6/18/16 and not only could they not keep it together at the hostess stand but we had 3 different bartenders what we wanted to drink at the bar and none of them came with any of...

Love good bbq and decided this was the night for ribs...not pulled pork or bbq chicken...but ribs. Location of this place was fantastic...great setting and curb appeal, especially for a night of ribs. Inside was no different. Plywood floors, wood panelled walls, bare ceiling...the works. The girl who greeted us was doing something on paper at the hostess stand, double... More

We went here for the food and music. The ribs were so tender and the sauce soooo good. The side dishes were all amazing. They have music some nights but worth checking out too.

Skip all the other overpriced placed on Canton and head straight to THE HOLLOW. Yummie ribs or any other item on the menu. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy.
