My smoked chicken was yummy. My husband liked his pulled chicken as well. We both thought the bbq beans were quite good. Our server was attentive, and the live music was great that night. No complaints!

We asked the bartender to make us something fruity and she definitely delivered. We asked what the name was and she said its just something she likes to make. It was excellent. We stayed for the entertainment, but did not eat. They were really strict...More
