We enjoyed the environment, our server was excellent, and the food was great. They have a nice outdoor area that is nice in the summer.

Although the parking lot looked full, the restaurant is spacious and we were seated right away. Wait staff is fast, friendly and efficient. Food was(always) delicious, good sized servings and arrived quickly.

The indoor and outdoor areas are decorated nice. We sat outside on a gorgeous day and were able to watch sports on their TV screens! The barbeque and tea were delicious and made for a great day! I even asked for a Cobb Salad but with pulled bbq chicken... yummy!!

Met for lunch and was still overwhelmed by the amount of great food. I love this place. Try the mules, mine was great. I haven't had everything on the menu, but everything I have had beats all expectations.

Been here often and I'm still loving it! Great food, clean restaurant, wonderful wait staff (Christie), good prices. I enjoyed the pork chop meal and brought one home. Grilled just right! Home made potato salad and green beans---makes a southerner very happy! Will be back again!

Restaurant is not fancy so wear what you want. Staff is friendly and kitchen is quick. Barbecue is so good. Moist and plentiful. All servings are large portions so you really get your money's worth.Pork rinds melt in your mouth and mac & cheese and potato salad are yummy. My new favorite place.

We came in for a late lunch and the restaurant was still quite busy. We had an entertaining and happy waitress, who quickly got our order and food. She even gave my husband a beer sampler after she checked if it was on tap. We had a full rack of baby back ribs and a smoked Ruben. Both were good,... More

Worth the drive to the Peninsula. Excellent ribs. The smoked turkey,pastrami, and rope sausage also really good. The sides are decent, but this place is about the meat. Full bar, and decent beer selection, too. I have been there maybe a half dozen times, and the wait staff has always been very good.

Stopped in here last Saturday as had heard it was great BBQ joint. Well, it is! Everything looked and tasted great, generous servings. Excellent wait staff. Rustic setting, a bit noisey, but not bad. Reasonable pricing also.

Thank Herb H
