Went here for dinner with friends, no problem getting a seat for large party, restaurant was very accommodating. Ordered pretty much everything on the menu. The food tasted fine but none of it was that hot temperature wise. The BBQ lacked a smoky depth of flavor, that was clearly missing. The pulled chicken and pork were good, but like broiled... More

We have visited this restaurant twice while skiing in Deep Creek. Our visits were 3 years apart. Both times were enjoyable. Happy to see it is still operating so well. The barbecue is VERY good. This time, my son had a pulled pork wrap that was enormous and he really enjoyed. My daughter had the pulled chicken platter, so much... More

My boyfriend enjoyed a pulled pork dinner here - served with moist cornbread. The price was cheap and portion was large. The restaurant is large and furnished with lovely rustic furniture. Service is friendly and fast.

Large dining area with plenty of seating. Very quick service--you walk up to the counter to place your order, and by the time you make your way back to your table the waiter is there with your food. I give this place 4/5 stars because my meal was not hot when it reached my table--very perplexing as the food is... More

We stopped at this restaurant with several family members and enjoyed a hearty meal. The portions were large and the sides delicious. The smoked entree's were already seasoned with sauce, and some family members expressed that they prefer to add their own sauce.

Took the food to go, but when we went in to pick it up, the atmosphere of the restaurant seemed quiet and nice. Food was good - lots of it. Kind of wish we tried the Ribs - since they've won a ton of awards - but we tried different sandwiches between us. Both were very good. Staff was very... More

Very friendly staff and quick service. Tried a "sampler" and was amazed by the brisket..extremely tender and tasty. Pulled pork was very good too but ribs were just so-so. BBQ sauce has a nice smokiness bite. We had baked beans and mac and both were ok. Would definitely go back for the brisket next time we visit.

BBQ is hard in a restaurant - but letting everything sit is a warming oven for too long is disastrous for BBQ. If you insist on doing the first - trying to "save" it by pouring on BBQ sauce before you serve it is not the way to go! Pulled chicken and pulled pork were both messy globs of tired... More

Stopped by for lunch after visiting Firefly Creamery and Market to pick up some cheese. They were not busy. They are open all year round. You order at the counter and then pick up your food at the counter when ready. We split the pulled pork sandwich. We picked two sides, which were the meaty baked beans and coleslaw. The... More

This was our second time to Archie's while visiting DCL. It is certainly the best in the area and very good overall. I feel like the food is a little pricey for what you get and they have changed the inside dining room where they have a hostess/waitress but you still walk up to order your own food, they just...
