“Good food, a little pricey”
Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Went today as a party of 4. Our waitress did a good job was attentive. Sort of awkward while the waitresses boobs are all out as she leans over the table to hand over drinks or meal recommendations. Not everyone appreciates or tips according to cleavage in their work uniforms. Food was good, had the Kentucky trio and one entree with a side. Sides are $3.49 for a small ramekin sized portion. Felt like that was overpriced as there are no sides that accompany entrees other than pickles and a sample size of coleslaw. Probably not the best family atmosphere but food was tasty

“Great smokehouse cuisine”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We arrived on a tuesday evening, and were able to sit onthe patio. The service was prompt, except for pop refills. The food was delicious,and the portions were large - enough for lunch the next day.

“2nd time, never a 3rd”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Was enticed to return to this restaurant following a year hiatus hoping for better results than the first time.

Did not happen, $18 for a burger and a salad is crazy, especially when both are nothing special. Place has potential and is nicely decorated, but the food is sub par and prices are out of this world. The fact that it was empty when the Market was full should have clued me in but it would appear I am a gluten for punishment.

“Ribs rock”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had the Kentucky Trio and the pulled pork poutine.
Service was very friendly and attentive, although the restaurant was almost empty for a late saturday aft.
Poutine was a huge hit.
Ribs best ever....anywhere
Chicken flavourful and smokey
Beef brisket tender but dry and uninspiring
Corn bread with maple butter superb
Smoked mac and cheese wasn't very smokey or flavourful
Smashed potato with gravy passable

Loud music wasn't necessary, couldn't hear ourselves hardly.

We'd return for ribs
