We stopped here on a visit to Charleston after reading other reviews. WOW, is all I can say. An amazing beer list, including Gluten Free, and the food and service were fantastic. We had the "smokey oaks experience" which was a sampler of beer chicken, smoked sausage, ribs, pulled pork and beef with 3 sides. It was amazing. I do agree that the sides are mediocre, but the meat more than makes up for it. Will was our server, ask for him. He was great!
