Delectable- eager friendly greeting.server soon at the table for the two late lunch orders: pulled pork, coleslaw and potato salad with a cornbread square. Second order identical except for brisket. Generous plates arrived quickly. Smokey, moist, tender with exquisite flavor. Despite both individuals at the...table being very hungry and nearly swooning at the delicious food, the servings were so generous that the leftovers were destined to be next day complete meals.More

This was our worst experience at a BBQ restaurant. We sat outside and when no wait staff came, I went inside to get menus. Finally a waitress came to take our drink orders. When she brought the drinks, we immediately ordered our BBQ. We waited...so long for our food (probably 45 minutes) that I went back inside and asked what happened to our food. The restaurant was only half full. When the food finally arrived, the BBQ was barely lukewarm (almost cold) and had no flavor. My husband only ate half of his BBQ and what he took home, he decided to throw away. We will not be back to this BBQ place again. There are a lot of good BBQ places in the area but this in not one of them.More

In the past, I was always very impressed with this place, but lately it has been inconsistent. The banana pudding is usually excellent, but they often sell out early in the day. This is a real drag when it happens repeatedly. The last time we...had it, they did something wrong while preparing it, and it didn't taste the way it's supposed to. The blackberry cobbler tastes like raisins. Not sure why that is. It's also more of a pie than a cobbler, since they use pie crust instead of biscuit dough. Biscuit dough is standard with cobbler. The peach cobbler's flavoring is better, but still biscuit dough. The carrot cake is okay, but too rich, and you need to scrape a lot of icing off in order to enjoy it. The ribs are usually excellent, but they are not consistent. I tried one the other day, and it tasted like beef for some reason. On top of that, the fat seemed to have rendered out of it, so I think the ribs were overcooked. The burgers are all right, but I received a "medium" that was actually well done. I ordered fried green tomatoes. They lacked seasoning. The waitress said they were out of ranch dressing, and she offered me bleu cheese. It would have been better to 86 the appetizer, because bleu cheese does not work with fried green tomatoes. I suspect the tomatoes were from a restaurant supply house, because the batter was just too perfect. The brisket is great. Fries are above average. The fried banana peppers are too bland. If Artman's was consistent, I'd give it 5 stars, but after repeat problems, I can't do that. You're taking your chances if you eat here.More

The food here is delicious. The bar-b-q brisket melts in your mouth. I like the broccoli casserole, potatoes, corn casserole, beans and cold slaw. I go back over and over.

We really enjoyed this little smokehouse restaurant. The ribs and pulled pork were excellent. The huge selection of sides they offer make it tough to narrow down which two to order with the entrée. We had corn casserole, green beans, and collard greens. All were...delicious. We tried their "Moinks" and those little meatballs (made with ground beef and sausage, filled with cheese and wrapped in bacon.) WOW! You need to try them, for sure. They were swamped by customers, but Selena, Kayla and the other employees did a great job! It's not fancy, but we will be going back for another BBQ fix!More

Very homey and intimate inside, not much of a “vibe” for dining as it felt like we were sitting in a house but the food was very very good. We each had a “Moink” ball to start us off as we waited for our entrée,...the bacon was flavorful and the mustard sauce added a nice touch. The food was moist and tender, it was hard to resist eating all of the massive plate, but I wanted left overs. I heard good things about the corn casserole, it was good, but not for me.More

A very nice place with huge portions and fair prices, but need improvements in their potatoes salad (too big chunks) and pull pork needs a little more fat, so it won't be too dry! Chicken smoke ok, but sometimes, grill with crispy and well seasoned,...probably, better! All around top 4 stars.🤓More

28 of us descended on Artman’s (w/ reservations, of course) today for lunch and were overwhelmed with their efficiency and the quality of the food was outstanding. As our server took each order on his iPad, it went straight to the kitchen so they weren’t...exasperated and bombarded with 28 all at once. In the blink of an eye, we were served and the server knew exactly which meal went to each diner. The servers were attentive but not “in your face”. The location was quite a jaunt from our abodes but it was well worth the trip. We’ve been there before and shall return.More
