Returned to this restaurant for dinner having had a very good lunch experience a week or so earlier. Dinner: not so good. The mac & cheese is a penne pasta with a rather bland, watery sauce, which was served cool; that definitely needs the chef's overhaul. The green beans, which for our prior lunch, had been so tasty were not of the same standard, taste, flavor. The version served at dinner were over-garlicky and lacking in the spicy, seasoned flavoring that had set them apart during the lunch-visit.
The meat was good, but nothing over & above.
Our waitress was most pleasant, but it is always rather off-putting when one orders dinner and two plates of food are literally placed in front of you, not five minutes later! It felt rather like all the food had just been sitting, buffet-style, in the kitchen rather than 'cooked to order'. (Probably explains why the mac&cheese was all but cold when served.)
The one consistent element is the BBQ sauces, both range and flavors are excellent.
So, would we return? yes, but we hope to see some improvement - and consistency - with the food, in particular the side dishes.
Ambience-wise, the restaurant was busy and the atmosphere was good though could have been improved with some gentle background music. Nothing to blare out conversation, but something to soothe the echo of wooden floors & high ceilings.
I am writing this review in the hope the restaurant will read and take note, rather than to deter customers. This establishment has the right idea and it really is worth visiting for the BBQ sauces alone....just stick with the pulled pork/chicken (which we had at lunch) if you want a fall-safe dining experience.
