I've been here many times with family. It's a fun atmosphere, and the food is good for the area. Staff is accommodating and generally friendly.

Extremely slow service & over priced food. Kept giving it another try but this was the last. Great potential but not worth the aggravation. Many other better options in the area.

If you get the five-meat combo, you'll be bringing home more than one doggie bag. It's all good, just more than a normal human can eat. All the menu items that we've tried have been tasty. The service, however, can be hit and miss.

Service and food were horrible. Bartender could not be bothered to seat us even though it said wait to be seated. Waitress was missing in action and very rude. We asked questions about the menu and she acted like she was too busy to answer even though we were the only people dining and there were 2 people at the... More

Lots of choices on the menu and everything we ordered was delicious. Handicap access was difficult. Once we figured out where to go we had to wait in the cold for someone to unlock the door and let us in.

Great looking place, the decor is right on for a smokehouse. Fast, pleasant & accommodating service, all good so far. The food came so quickly that we were taken aback & it looked really good too. The problem? You can't serve dry meat & call the place a smokehouse! I had the BBQ platter & the chicken, the brisket &... More

My family went and met some friends there. They take reservations which is nice and hard to find these days. The restaurant has a neat nostalgic feel as there are tons of old antique type things decorating the walls. It's child friendly and the food is fantastic.
