Lots of choices on the menu and everything we ordered was delicious. Handicap access was difficult. Once we figured out where to go we had to wait in the cold for someone to unlock the door and let us in.

Great looking place, the decor is right on for a smokehouse. Fast, pleasant & accommodating service, all good so far. The food came so quickly that we were taken aback & it looked really good too.

My family went and met some friends there. They take reservations which is nice and hard to find these days. The restaurant has a neat nostalgic feel as there are tons of old antique type things decorating the walls. It's child friendly and the food is fantastic.

We eat here on a Thursday night. Wasn't very busy, and we were a large group (four adults and five kids). Sat at the long bar table, which the kids loved. Food was good - all meat groups were covered by our group - ribs, pulled pork, brisket and chicken. Baked sweet potato was covered with loads of maple butter.... More

I had purchased a Groupon for a great price online so my husband and I went for a nice dinner date. As always, great food, great service and large portions. We took part of it home with us!
