We went here with a large group (50) of people on a Thursday evening. The staff was ready for us, they were friendly and efficient. My wife and I shared a fried catfish meal and a fried shrimp meal. Both were great. Some of our friends had the ribeye steak and reported their meals as being very good as well.... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel. Stopped for late afternoon meal. The steaks and BBQ was really good with very generous portions and the service was good. It is a large place, but wasn't noisy. I would consider their prices moderate and my adult kids had fried bacon with tomato gravy.

The BBQ is wonderful! So are the sides, i.e. cole slaw, potato salad, beans, onion rings (they don't give enough though). Can't go wrong eating here!

Wonderful food and a great menu selection. Brisket is sliced thick and is so tender. Sides are great and a lot of choices. They have burgers and steaks as well. Hope to return next year

I only ate the food here after it was picked up and brought back to my work place by a coworker. I was not impressed one bit. The chicken seemed low quality and the sides weren't any better. I feel like I could've been better off at a grocery store deli. I've had some locals rave about this place so... More

BBQ and steak are great. Price is very good. Service was excellent but there were no fountain drinks or iced tea due to water outage.
