this was our second visit to loveys...seems like only the bad experiences take the time to post...our group found the food as above average and the pricing quite reasonable....would definitely go back when in the mood for BBQ...

So disapointed in this place, we have heard mixed reviews and thought we would try it ourselves. My friend is in from the US and thought I would treat him to BBQ, from the minute we walked in I had a bad feeling. The ladies working there seem to have a snotty air about them. No real customer service, we sat where we could see into the kitchen and i kept saying they are Microwaving everything, and he repied no they cant. Our total was 59.00 and for the food that came out on the plastic plates it was WAY OVER PRICED.

AlI i can say is my Dog really enjoyed it.........

Wanted to try this restaurant as we had read a great review about it but the entire experience was very disappointing. The food was way over priced for the quality. Our bill for 4 people came to $144.00 (we're talking almost cafeteria style with next to no service other than the food brought to your table). We ordered two glasses of wine and both glasses came dirty with lipstick marks on them. We had ordered the baby Back ribs and even though the server said they were BB's when she brought them, they looked and tasted like side ribs. In fact there was next to no meat on the ribs and they were extremely dry as if they had been heated 4 or 5 times. At $24.95 a slab, we should have sent them back but didn't. This was the same for the chicken wings...again overcooked, dry to the bone. Only thing good was the homemade mac and cheese...it was creamy and delicious, Overall a very disappointing dining experience. We don't mind paying for GOOD food but this poorly mediocre at best.

Great food tasted like home made. The cornbread melted in your mouth and there was good selection to choose from. I would recommend this unique restaurant.

Our hotel was close by while in the city and so strolled to Lovey's to check it out.
The BBQ chicken was moist and smoky and was laid out on a bed of garlic fries that were great. The cornbread almost literally melted in the mouth and I'm pretty sure I've not had better beans anywhere else.
It was a little chaotic when checking in with the waitress upon our arrival, but that was likely as a result of the multitudes of people clamouring to get in to enjoy a meal.
The three of us ladies ate for 60$ (including a cocktail each) and we were stuffed. There were lots of leftovers that would make a good lunch.
Will definitely be back and bring the kiddos (kids under 10 apparently eat for free on Sundays!)
