Great brisket and sweet potato fries! Super friendly staff! Our waiter shared local tips and places to see on our trip. Was such a great experience that my husband went back a couple days later and took all his buddies!

We ate here on Sunday 10-01, we had a group of 11. Restaurant is small so we were crowded. I had seafood and it was okay. Other members of our group had BBQ and thought it was really good.

I had the crab legs which were excellent and my husband had the pulled pork which he loved. Served very casually in a small place that also has a large take out menu. The only issue I had was the amount of plastic that was...More
