Hit a good day it seems. Trust there are more of these now. Good lunch crowd. As to the food it was pretty good. Had the smoked brisket and found the smoke was just right, and, the meat tender. The same waitress was serving from the last visit and she again was certainly keeping her profession in good standing. She was excellent again. To this the house seemed different and much fresher, upbeat and friendly overall. Seems they have really picked up their socks and that is a good thing. There was a slight shower in the area and walking in with wet souls needs to be addressed. The shiny wood floor was very slippery. It should be looked at before any accident occurs. Outside of this small problem everything was pleasant and worth the experience. I honestly can't say it was very good but certainly better than average today.

we had heard great things about this place and we love BBQ so we thought what the heck lets give it a whirl, First the service is slow for a place that has been cooking your dinner for many hours how can it take this long .. the Dino Ribs were fairly impressive in size but the smoker flame is to high and it taints the flavor of the meat with Natural gas .. Pulled pork was great the wife says and it must have been as she had it gone in a very few minutes ..overall the pulled pork sandwich was better flavor than the ribs I had were ..and again service was slow where can you drink a cup of coffee before they take your order.. will we go back maybe ..

This is a decent smoke house in Steveston. Definitely the best on in Richmond.

Order the platter if you're really hungry but we split it between 4 guys that had decent appetites and still weren't able to finish it. Meat and sausages are pretty good and we didn't have a chance to try any of the fish.

One thing that I always have with smoke houses is the corn bread. This place was below average in that category.

If you like ribs, and heaps of meat, this is the place for you.
My only complaint was we did not order enough veggies. All the different meat tasted the same -- smoky taste of BBQ sauce. We could not finish all the meat.
Good atmosphere. Great service. Good location.

If you are in the mood for MEAT and want to sit on the patio without having to brave the Granville Island crowds, then THIS is the place! Love the Brisket!
