“Steak Night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

On Sunday almost everything in "town" is closed with the exception of Swinging Doors, so you don't have much choice. However, the steak and sides (again, no choices available) were really good. Order it one degree less than you normally would as either the cook is a bit overzealous or the grill is a little too hot.

“Barbeque night is a great deal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Be sure and get reservations, or you're out of luck. You get healthy portions of good barbeque as well as sides, and the beers are well priced too. Nice "down home" atmosphere and meal to contrast with the sit down fancier restaurants we also went to during the week. They also do a brisk carryout business.

“Great ribs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Enjoyed the ribs and the pleasant service. Atmosphere was rather noisy, but after all, the place really is primarily a bar. Food was delicious and a good value.

“Cute with OK food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

We had an extremely friendly waitress from the Philippines. She was the highlight of our experience. The second best part was the BBQ chicken. So, we liked the place and we had a good time. I thought the ribs were mediocre. Anyway, worth going, but nothing super special.
