When you walk in you feel like your entering a "neighborhood bar/restaurant". The ribs are delicious. A full rack is $19 and were tender and delicious. You get to choose from 15 side dishes. There are several "bucket list" items you can choose from and you can get a "bucket" of sliders, ribs, grilled teriyaki chicken, wings, and several others. Happy hour offers buckets of beer. Service was excellent. We had a waiter named Dutch who made sure our drinks were filled and was attentive. The bar area was crowded. If you're looking for a quiet place to eat, this isn't the place. If you're looking for good food and service...this IS the place.

This is one of our favorite places to eat in Ft. Myers. We go there every year when we travel for Red Sox spring training. The food is delicious! Nothing fancy, just good food and fun! Beers and drinks are very reasonably priced, and they run many specials. They are very friendly to all the baseball fans attending spring training. Love the buckets in the middle of the tables for bones, trash, whatever. You can also get a bucket of beers at certain times which is fun with a group.

My husband and I went there for lunch. We both ordered the pulled pork sandwich, which was really, really good. You don't even need barbeque sauce, but it is available.

I used the restroom and it was very dirty. Then upon returning to the table I looked hard at the restaurant and it realy is "dirty". The mirrors behind the bar appear to have never been cleaned. The whole restaurant needs a major cleaning.

Probably won't return.

If you like noise and tables with a bucket in the middle, you will like this place. I guess the bucket is for eating ribs which I don't care for. Wrap sandwiches were ok.

First impression was that this was gona be an awesome smokehouse. kinda hard to miss the tanker truck smoker outside which is what attracted us. we were sat swiftly and told it was happy hour, where we ordered drinks and then were told they didnt have 2 out of the 4 beers on special (we should have taken a hint) slow drink service and the food left 5 out of 6 of us wanting to puke all night (1 did). look into the kitchen you will see food sitting out and not stored properly, dont waste your time or money here
