“great bbq platter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

the waiter suggested including the sausage, which I wouldn't have selected and it was delicious - the ribs and pulled pork were good, but the sausage was different and terrific. They make a good martini, too.

“Decent but nothing earth shattering...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

Service was good enough. Food was good but not outstanding. Didn't think we wasted our money, though. I wasn't expecting three strips of brisket on top of my salad. It was difficult to slice them up into pieces for my salad.

“Decent Service & Ambiance, but not great food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

My son and I wanted something casual, but good food. I got the turkey burger - not very good and he got the fried chicken tenders - which he liked. Service was fine and decent atmosphere, but wished we ate somewhere else.

“Amazed in a bad way. ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

Poor service, average food and overpriced. But other than that it's ok. I came down from my hotel and hoped for an easy good meal. I ordered the special-- they were out. I had to go to the-bar to refill my drink and the guy that took care of me was very curt and short. They must really be doing well since they don't seem to value their customer.
Won't be back.
