Their food was very good. The atmosphere is great. They had live music there when we visited. Personally I tried the brisket which was very good. The rest of the party found the food very good too.

We really enjoyed our late lunch, with great food and great service. The ambiance was better than I expected, and I liked the nonstop music on a quality sound system. The unique smoked meatloaf was super. We will return.
