So disappointing to hear from the bartender that burger choices are off the menu. They rave about it on their website & flyers but then they ran out on a Sunday early afternoon. This was followed by 55 minute wait for smoked pork ribs and...More

Out family though it would be great to have a picnic at the BBQ festival. The food was disgusting and the beer was all from one brewery and was over priced rubbish! The Duck served as amazing food and their BRUT ipa was delicious. 2...More
