Wish they had a combination of ribs and chicken. We ordered ribs, chicken and pork tenderloin. The salads were well marinated in the house dressing and that made them very enjoyable. Baked potato was hot although light on butter and sour cream. The salted rye...More

Doesn't look like much on the outside, but inside it is quite Pine Club'esq. You know 1950's elegant. Service was terrific and although the portions were not huge the food was good. I expected more BBQ on the menu. There are quite limited options really.

The smell when you enter sets a great tone as you enter the building - you know it's going to be good. We were seated immediately and I was surprised it wasn't the usual "barbecue joint" menu. The steaks, shrimp, and cabbage rolls we saw...More

Just left there... Not many GF options. Neither the seasoning or BBQ is GF. The shrimp cocktail was good. They said the cabbage rolls are GF. Order steaks or burgers with no seasoning or buns.
