Great outdoor patio. Live music. Great ribs. Delicious Long Island Ice Tea. I think that covers it. Priced right. Go. Enjoy.

“Good Place for a Casual Dinner”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

I and my wife ate dinner here and enjoyed it quite a bit. It isn't fancy, but but it is clean, the service is good and the food is also very good. (The prices are reasonable also). Just a note - the barbecue sauce can be very spicy, so have it on the side - the pulled pork is excellent.
