They had fair BBQ, a nice back porch seating area, and used to have paint and sips but I just went by this place the other day and now it's out of business.

Visit this establishment when you get a chance. The menu is revolving and the cider selection is extensive. Try their southern style specials.

Don't judge a book by its cover-this was a new restaurant to try for restaurant week and we're glad we found them. We had the BBQ ribs and chicken and both were very well seasoned and cooked perfectly. The gumbo soup was also amazing! They...More
