The food here is average for bbq, but the menu has also changed a few times. Not bad but definitely needs some love.

The food here is ok. It can be tasty, but sometimes inconsistent. However, don’t come here to drink. $11 for a 16 oz. craft beer was just too much.

Not our first visit here, very ordinary offerings, but very good, nonetheless.....corn bread to die for, but, overall, a VERY EXPENSIVE family meal......not memorable.

We tried fried green tomatoes for the first time! The ribs and pulled pork were great. The kids meal options do not include anything with barbecue. They serve water in mason jars. The ceiling of the restaurant is beautiful. A fun experience.
