Good food and service but the atmosphere was heavy and you felt the pressure of the next service. Nice decoration.

My husband and I chose this restaurant cause it was #1 on trip advisor. It did not disappoint!!! Best ribs we've had!!! And you can buy the sauce to bring home. Tiny, no frills restaurant. Great friendly staff. Can't wait to go back next time we are close by!

Calamari entrée was very good. Ribs were "fall off the bone" tender and the sauce was delicious. Just the right combination of smokey and sweet. Francine was our waitress and she was so pleasant during our evening! 5/5 for her service! Would definitely return if ever in the area again!

Service was very good but the food was 5/10! Fries, fish and escargots were overcooked! Soup was excellent ! Calamari and ribs were good!

Fantastic chicken and ribs!!!! Good service, reasonable price, pretty atmosphere. Absolutely will return again if in the area, too bad I don't have a location close to home. No fees to split a meal if you separate it yourself at the table. Owner Mitch appeared to be on top of everything and was a hands on owner, checking on the... More

Some good food here but the Brisket sandwich is small, and swimming in sauce, very little meat. I could have eaten 4 of them. $15.95 each. To me, Brisket is the benchmark for a bbq place. Tried the ribs as well, which were excellent.
