This is a great place to hang out, especially in the Spring and Summer months. Good food, good location, and inexpensive.

Loved my fish tacos with fired green tomatoes on the side! Barbecue pork and wings were delicious too! We had good service. Margarita was not as strong and I thought glass was too small for $9.00. Nice location.

I've come here for lunch with co-workers a decent amount of times, and I've never been impressed. The service is typically slow, and the food is just average. The jerk chicken sandwich is...well less than authentic, and I'm just not sure I'll ever come back on my own accord.

Food was ok. Just an average burger. Service was nothing to brag about. Most likely won't visit again when I'm in town.

The meat fell off the bone. My husband and I shared a plate of 8 ribs with 2 sides, and couldn't finish it all. The ribs were delicious. My husband had a beer that was aged in Wild Turkey barrels and loved it. My glass of Pinot Noir was exceptional. I wish we lived near here so we could eat... More

We were traveling through CLT and stopped near here. Our hotel recommend this place. When we arrived, we had no idea the Panthers were playing. The local crowd was really into the game which created a fun atmosphere. Plenty of screens to see the game-to bad they lost. Our waiter was most helpful in helping us select some local craft...

Had dinner here on a glorious Fall evening. The place was lively and has a great menu and drinks list. Service was really good and the food (full rack of ribs) was superb! ,

My friend and I met for lunch at boardwalk Billy's for drinks and food. We had a great time plenty of laughs. The bartender was extremely rude, because my friend didn't leave a tip, telling her that she forgot to put her tip on the bill. I left enough for us both, but the bartender began talking about my friend... More

Very lively place. We tried the founder different ways. Good, but expected better. The shrimp was very good. Good service and they were packed.
