The service and food were both just okay. Cheap but lacks quality. The meat was fatty and not as lean as we prefer. The restaurant does has a nice atmosphere and outdoor seating which is what originally drew us there.

This restaurant was a great find. We on!y went there after seeing the reviews on trip advisor. I had the hot burger and changed the patty for a buffalo one. The food is really great and we took so much home it did lunch for 5 the next day.

Authentic barbeque in Whitefish. Visited on a weeknite and they had Mike Murray performing his original music outside. The music was great the food was great. Very low key barbeque. Highly recommended.

Good BBQ, we got the platters and was more than we could eat. Beef brisket was great, half rack ribs and chicken were also great. Lots of variety of sides and reasonable prices

Love it that it close to home and GOOD! I love to pick up sides to fill out a quick meal for company! I have heard they will put together a picnic if your are going out on the lake. Just call ahead.
