First time eating here. Nice friendly atmosphere. The food was excellent, however i have to say the service was great. Dora, our server, was super nice. Highly recommend.

We called in here because the original place we wanted to dine at did not open till quite a bit later , and we were so hungry we could have eaten a whale by now !

So , with great trepidation , we did our first road crossing in the USA , on foot , truly terrifying !

Once inside Coney's we were seated next to an indoor lake , with babbling water and a soothing atmosphere , the interior is a little like an old west town , with loads of memorabilia dotted around. Very rustic.

We ordered Ribs & Fried Catfish and Battered Fried Shrimp (Prawns to us) and a couple of sides from our young male server , his advice was invaluable , and proved to be perfect each time. We chose a couple of local IPA's to accompany the meal on his recommendation.

After he took our order , he presented us with a snack with our drinks , one that was a "What the" for us , looked like doughnut balls dusted in icing sugar , curious for us , never had that before. We tried them , but decided that they weren't for us , esp not with a good IPA.

The meals arrived not long after , and again the serve sizes amazed us , huge by our standards , but we were getting used to this by now.

My wife's Shrimp were very well cooked , tender ,juicy & sweet esp. with a good dipping sauce.Sides were good too.

My Ribs were excellent , fall apart , good smoky bark , good texture , well seasoned , with a good quality BBQ sauce to accompany. The baked potato side , however , was not as good as one I'd had previously , but that's how it goes.

My Catfish was excellent , still tender , good texture , seasoned well, with just the right amount of crunch to give a great mouth feel.

So , our first BBQ meal was very good , service was excellent , great beer selection , charming atmosphere , we thoroughly enjoyed it here !

Would we go back again , absolutely !

On a recommendation, we are here. The waitress (Nicol) was excellent providing great recommendations and she was very friendly. The food was quite good as were the recommended drinks and whiskeys.

This place is a definite must go!! The food was amazing and our waitress Dora was awesome. Extremely friendly and excellent service. If you are interested in something different they have frog legs and alligator but for those like myself who want to keep it simple the filet was delicious and cooked perfectly!!
