The ribs I would definitely eat again they could be cooked a little bit longer though. the pulled pork I would definitely stay away from it tasted funny ! it wasn't warm and it had absolutely no flavor!

It seemed like the ribs needed more time on the smoker, and the brisket needed to be kept moist more often The atmosphere... More

We had the pleasure of dining here on the first night of our stay at the Tucker Hill Inn. The food was simple but very good, the owners are very friendly and engaging.

We were only in town for 2 nights for a wedding and we ate here twice. The food was outstanding, the drinks were yummy, and the service was fantastic. The servers went above and beyond and went out of their way to be extra engaging with our 2-year-old daughter. Very clean, relaxed, and comfortable atmosphere. We will definitely return when...

We had a challenging day of hiking the Long Trail and wanted to just relax and have some good food. We had previously passed the Smokehouse and noticed the parking lot looked quite full. We ordered different dishes: burgers, pulled pork sandwiches -- I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich with cheese and onions and a side of grilled vegetables. It... More
