Ate her recently as a couple and had the mixed BBQ platter. It was all pre-cooked. Nothing was made to order and it was shredded and very dry. Not anything like real BBQ. It also didn't help that the restaurant was filled with angry women who were dining there after participating in election result protests. Really ruined what was already... More

This place has awesome BBQ. Loved the onion rings, baked beans have chunks of pork in them and taste great. Cornbread was excellent, meat fell off the bone on the ribs and excellent flavor. 1/4 chicken and sausage plate was great! Waitress was on point and very nice. We would definitely come here again!

We have been here numerous times, most recently for lunch on a Sunday in February. My husband had BBQ - which is consistently good... and I enjoyed one of the specials: a salad with greens, warm roasted duck, mandarin oranges, slivered roast almonds and a small topping of cranberry sauce. It was magnificent. Both of us enjoyed local beers on... More

I went here in August with business friends on a very slow Wednesday early afternoon. Too say service was slow would be an understatement, non existent would be closer, the server we had seemed very uninterested in her job or her customers. We all ordered the ribs and one had the sampler. Although the food was ok, it fell easy... More

We used to go here regularly, now only occasionally, food and drinks are good. The Gin Mill upstairs is the best part, the whole idea of bringing alive the speak easy that once was there.

They had a hearty meaty chili today. They make a different chili every day, and I usually don't order it, but I really got lucky today. Best cornbread!

We ate here for dinner. Our waitress Samantha was very attentive. I had coffee for a beverage, and now it is rare to get refills on non alcoholic beverages, but she kept my coffee topped off through the whole meal. My husband and I both had meals from the specials board and they were delicious. They seem to specialize in... More
