“Are ther new owners?”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

It seems like somebody tried to fix something that wasn't broken. I have been eating here for many years and it just wasn't the same.

“Good place after long day of diving”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Me and my family went to eat here. The interior is well fitted to the roughness of the restaurant. I ordered St.Louis style ribs which tasted delicious. The restaurant also has a salad bar which is very small but enough. You are unfortunately only allowed to visit it once if you order the ribs. The place is good for a quick meal after a long day and fills stomachs quick!

“After a day of snorkeling this place hit the spot”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

The decor is that of a basic diner with booths on the walls and longer picnic style tables in the middle for larger groups. They offer a salad bar which is very simple but a nice touch for a bbq joint, I felt good about eating some veggies before my meat plate arrived. I tried the combo plate which is your choice of beef brisket, pork, ribs and chicken. The brisket was thinly sliced and well seasoned, while the ribs were done St Louis style. There were the sauces to choose from, all unique and packed with flavor. The baked beans and sliced of garlic toast were outstanding and complemented the bbq very well. The service was good, although a bit slow, but maybe I was just famished. I will return whenever I have a big appetite.

“Good Sandwich”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

My wife got a small chopped BBQ pork sandwich. I got the large Jamaican Jerk pork sandwich with chopped BBQ pork. The were both very good and inexpensive. They also have draft beer at a reasonable price.
