Have visited this place a couple of times while on vacation. Service is always good with a friendly and professional staff. Menu is priced moderately with a good variety. Music is limited to weekends and is usually the blues. You can't go wrong visiting here

We had brisket and three sides. Nothing particularly outstanding in preparation or presentation we got what we ordered. Really liked the preserved interior brickwork of the old downtown neighborhood. Service was prompt and friendly. We will go back.
