Service was poor, and the quality was poor. Pricy place to not be satisfied with. The last several trips over the past year have all been subpar. My guest( who wanted to try it) will not be back either.More

Lockheart’s has some great BBQ and an awesome relaxing environment. Went with friends and got pretty much every kind of meat on the menu. Nice selection of craft beers and waitstaff was very nice.
