Stopped by to see if we could get pulled pork sandwiches for hike, there was a bbq smoker outside just making smoke, no bbq. the employees were outside smoking cigarettes and sitting on the table with feet on the chairs. We went in to check the place out but it smelled bad, so we decided to go back outside to... More

Not sure why the terrible reviews. The barbecue was decent. I had pulled beef, my friend had pulled pork. Both were good. Prices were a little high but it is a tourist area. Not sure I would get much else on the menu except maybe a burger. Atmosphere is almost non-existent.

My husband and I shared a rack of ribs for dinner! They were delicious! smokey flavor and the meat fell off the bones. We also ordered potato salad as a side; very good too!

I am becoming convinced there are no decent places to eat in the historic Harper's Ferry area unless you stick to ice cream. They are just tourist traps and feed us rancid disgusting food. On an extremely hot day my husband and I were lured in by the smell of barbecue being grilled outside. We asked for iced teas which... More

We love BBQ. There was allot of enticing smoke from the grills (not really usable, it seemed-more for the atmosphere), but when we went inside, there was a decided smell of sulfur (maybe someone was eating eggs?), the place seemed less than clean, so we turned around and left. Can't understand why the strong odor of smokey BBQ would be... More

Don't let the great smell of wood smoke fool you into stepping inside and eating. We've eaten at dozens of BBQ joints all over the US and know how good BBQ should be prepared and taste and this was not our first trip to Harpers Ferry so we were expecting the prices. Our group of four had the pulled chicken... More

My boyfriend and I are new to the Harpers Ferry area and decided to go out for a casual dinner. We chose this restaurant because my boyfriend is a big fan of BBQ and we liked the idea of the restaurant being in a train caboose. The menu was very limited, with only 3 BBQ options on the menu. I... More

We sat there 5-10 minutes & almost walked out. They were out of mac & chz which I really wanted. We are locals & heard the BBQ was amazing but my food was cold & I was over it. No one asked how we were. The owners just stood around talking the entire time. It is a cute caboose car... More

We decided to spend a day with our teenagers exploring Harper's Ferry. After a day of walking in the heat, we were hungry and VERY thirsty. We picked this place because it looked quaint and interesting. We were the only customers in the place and waited over 5 minutes for a young girl to even acknowledge us and ask what... More

I believe this place (in the old red train caboose) is now called "Hannah's Train Depot" and has recently changed ownership. Our innkeepers recommended it - we initially passed it up because they don't serve beer, but after an overpriced, substandard meal elsewhere, we decided to give it a try. I had a fried oyster sandwich with mac and cheese,... More
