Ordered pulled pork and redneck fries. Both items were cold. Hot food should be hot. Did not care for the table settings/napkins.

The meat itself is very good. Im not impressed with their selection of appetizers. The smoked turkey is amazing. But there isn't a whole lot of food on the plate for the money you pay.

We reviewed the tap list online and saw two beers we wanted to drink. Headed over to find out they had not even tapped those beers yet. Instead, I got a kill the keg special which tasted horribly flat. Service at the bar was mediocre.

This establishment has a great selection of smoked products and craft beers. The smoked items that I have tried are Excellent. Rib Appetizer was the best I've tried in the area. NWI should be proud to have this establishment in the area
