This is the smallest McClintocks location, more crowded inside and less atmospheric, so dine on the in patio if possible.The food is always good Oakwood barbecue and more than enough to eat! The service is fine,but less attentive when crowded. Relaxed, informal, enjoy!

We found this place while walking thru the town. It was not a popular (busy) as some of the surrounding but we really liked the vibe. The food was good and food / drink reasonably priced. Don't let the bar stop you from going in.
