“Good Ribs, Casual Eating”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

You walk through a small bar to get to the restaurant - it has a bit of a biker-bar feel to it, and the small child running loose and the large dog wandering through the bar created a somewhat chaotic atmosphere. Looks like a favorite locals place, but we had a good dinner there.

Large portions, BBQ ribs, turkey and brisket with beans, potato salad all of them delicious. Slow service to start as the owners wife had all the wait staff cornered for 10 minutes telling a good story. But after that it was fine.

Good americana fare - better than what you might expect in a small coastal town. And a pretty good value too. We would eat here again.

“Burgers and ribs”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

This is not a fancy place, but I was surprised at how good the ribs were. It was pretty busy when we were there, but the service was good. Interesting décor with the license plates and dollar bills stapled to the ceiling. My only complaint was that there were annoying flies in the restaurant. Other than that, it was a good dinner.

“Great Smoked & BBQ'd Meats!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Great casual restaurant and bar with delicious food and drink! Nice views, big menu, good service. Excellent bbq'd/smoked brisket, chicken and the fresh smoked salmon was some of the best I've ever tasted. Not fancy and a very casual atmosphere, but the food was very good! Would definitely consider them for catering and/or takeout.

“Nice View”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Being from Texas, bbq never quite lives up to Texas standards, but this was very good. We had brisket, which was tender and plentiful, and beans, which were also good. The place has a beautiful ocean view, but the atmosphere is more like a biker bar than a restaurant. Lots of folks on motor cycles stopped in to have a bite and a brew. There are dollar bills with messages on them, and license plates all over the walls and ceilings. Friendly staff and prompt service. No complaints here.
