Great BBQ, fast service. The meal in the trash can lid can't be beat! Multiple sauces on the table and the cornbread muffins are the best!!

Food is decent. Service was incredibly slow - and we beat the rush. We sat there for at least five minutes before our waiter came...and he was subpar at best.

The ribs were good and the brisket was great. The prices are a little steep since it is a chain restaurant but at least you know what you'll get and won't be disappointed.

took forever to get food, and stuff was cold. Person seating us put us upstairs right next to large group with small noisy kids (we are grandparents) , server had to run up and down stairs for food. He did try, but wouldn't eat there again.

We got the family feast for $72.00 . It was enough to feed my family of five. The food came out fast and the staff was friendly. I enjoyed the chicken the most.

We had a group of 23 so I understand things would not go as well as a smaller group. But the waitress took our drink order, filled it and didn't come back until the food was done. Which was about an hour later. She delivered the food and didn't come back again to check on us. One persons meat was... More

Best dining experience. Good food and good service. Makes the rest of the Dells pale in comparison. We ordered the platter for 2 where you could get a sampling of items plus the onion strings. You won't be disappointed!

Been looking forward to this place, and it did not disappoint. We got the BBQ brisket nachos for an appetizer and they were good.....there was a little too much lettuce on them, and it looked more like a salad though. For our main course we got the family feast for 2/3;it was enough for myself, my wife, my 4 yr... More
