Stopped here for dinner when we couldn't get a table at Flatbread. Saw mixed reviews, but thought we'd try it. Was just okay. Got the pulled pork -- not dry like other reviews mentioned, but came out Luke warm at best. Definitely didn't taste like it was smoked -- almost like it was cooked in a slow cooker. I've made...

Good food, good beer, attentive staff and a large screen TV to watch Superbowl. Need I say more? Yes, Trip Advisor says I have to. Haven't they heard of a succinct review?

The place opened at 5 , they did initially accommodate a party of 12 which grew to 19. We asked for an additional table , but the staff refused, even though the crown coming in wasn't that large.

We went during the off season, so the place was less crowded than I imagine it is in ski season or in summer. Food is decent. Excellent selection of craft beers and sipping whiskey. Friendly service. It seemed like this was a place frequented by locals, but that could have been because of when we went. It's a pretty large... More

I'm from Texas so I have high standards when it comes to barbecue. The ribs I would definitely eat again they could be cooked a little bit longer though. the pulled pork I would definitely stay away from it tasted funny ! it wasn't warm and it had absolutely no flavor! And it was dry! Avoid the pulled pork at... More

I went with 6 guys. We have all had different experiences with Smoked BBQ. The Smoked meats were marginal. The meats were dry, dry , dry. Brisket was dry and tough, chicken ok and ribs were fatty. It seemed like the ribs needed more time on the smoker, and the brisket needed to be kept moist more often The atmosphere... More

We had the pleasure of dining here on the first night of our stay at the Tucker Hill Inn. The food was simple but very good, the owners are very friendly and engaging.
