I've only eaten here twice. Both times it was less than great. Nothing to rave about. And the tables, dishes, silverware, etc. were not clean. Not a fan.

The wait staff was great, the food was average. The choices were varied yet all tasted the same, smokey! From the salad to the wings, to the drinks, everything had a overwhelmingly smoked taste. I was not impressed.

We visited the restaurant 30 minutes before their kitchen closed but were served promptly and enjoyed interacting with the waitress. I had one of their special turkey/brisket clubs and it was excellent. My wife especially enjoyed their onion rings.
