If you like dry bar-B-Q they got you covered! Like it wet, yup, they got you covered. Sweet too! Every table has their own set of four sauces. The onion rings were so good we ordered them for dessert after having them as an appetizer. A busy place but they get you in and out without hurrying! It's a Greenville standard.

Went to this restaurant over the weekend and had a very good meal. Our table had ribs, barbecue pork, and brisket, all of which was very tasty. They have four type of barbecue sauces at the table (two ketchup based and two mustard base) so you could choose the sauce of your liking. The wait was long on a Friday evening (45 minutes) but it was worth the wait. The restaurant was noisy but there was a big crowd that evening.

Sat outside at first but couldn't get the flys to go away. They were attracted to the sticky cork on top of the 4 tall sauces that the server brought out.
So we moved to a table inside. Food was served fast and is OK, not great. Pricing is average for what you get - $7.95 for beef brisket or pulled pork.
Servers look and act like they don't want to be there, sort of have a snotty attitude.

We were walking around Charlevoix around lunch with friends visiting. We also had our Havanese dogs with us. Many places outside don't allow dogs; however, they had a large water bowl denoting that dogs were welcome outside. The smoking smell of meats on their smoker/grill waffled up and down the street - a drawing card for any BBQ loving individual. My husband is considered an expert at smoking meats; and, he thought theirs was extremely good. We also liked Julia's home-made sauces for the brisket.

This is their first summer in Charlevoix; so, I am sure they will work out some of their problems we experienced in getting served. We sat there for almost 15 minutes before anyone took our drink order - at which time we made certain we got our order placed at the same time. It did seem to take much longer than normal to get our food; and, then they were 1 entree short. To their credit, they brought another entree free of charge since they were out of the 2nd brisket which we ordered and the beverages were also free of charge. During the summer months this restaurant would do well to hire some additional outside servers; however, the staff was extremely friendly and the food was exceptional.

Excellent location with great outdoor seating when weather is good. Great bar to stop by after work or meet friends. Really like their menu. Good comfort food cooked in unique ways. Very reasonable pricing makes it a great downtown spot.
