There is an nice view and you have the choice to sit inside or outside. The service is excellent and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Plenty of parking, including motorcycles and the only drawback is you can only eat so much.

The menus is kind of confusing so be sure to ask questions. The onion rings are amazing and I had enough left over of my sandwich to take it to work the next day. It's worth another visit.

Bad food, poor selection. Only good thing is view. If you want a good meal go someplace else to eat.

This is a BBQ I stop at every time I'm nearby. The meat selection and quality is outstanding. They do fall short on their sides. The frozen fries don't meet the standards of the rest of their food but it doesn't stop me from visiting....More
