2 of us went for lunch. Each of us had the pulled pork with 2 sides. I had the mac and cheese, which was creamy and delicious. Had the spicy hush puppies too, which were ok (not much spice or other flavor to them). The pork was tender and juicy, but was served stone cold (for both of our orders). The sauces on the table are decent -- the house sauce is a pretty generic, extremely sweet Kansas City style BBQ sauce. Their spicy was better -- basically the same sauce but with heat. I don't care for vinegar sauce, so I didn't bother with that. The service was pretty lousy -- waitress never checked on us, and had to be flagged down. Finally, whoever runs the bar needs to learn how to draw a pint of Guinness -- that was the worst pour I've ever seen!

Overall, not the worst BBQ I've had in West Michigan, but it still needs to up its game.

First time here. Loved the food, service and atmosphere. Exposed brick walls and good smells. Our waitress (Heather) was awesome and I hope to get her the next time we visit. Only downside was the noise level. Can’t wait to go back to try the catfish. Great portion sizes!

Excellent meal and service. We will definitely be back. The flavor of the smoked meat was excellent. 2 people ordered blue gills and enjoyed them too.

The food here is really good. We have stopped here a couple of times and enjoyed the brisket. The service was great. However, be prepared to wait a bit to be seated. The dining area is not huge, but you will not be disappointed after your food arrives.

BBQ was spot on with homemade sauces. While the BBQ was good the chicken skins were one of the most interesting items on the menu. Like Pork Rinds but light and crispy they are a must have.
