Nice atmosphere in a newer downtown environment. For a reasonable price, you can enjoy a ham, pork or beef BBQ made with the Knotty Pines recipe of years past. The server was polite and attentive.

I expected either Mr. Byorek or Bernard Jr. to be in the kitchen and a group of regulars to be sitting at the counter. The BBQ was perfect, the fries w/gravy were excellent and the rice pudding for dessert made this the perfect lunch. Service was great. Don't miss this updated trip back in time. Maybe they could add "Curb Service!"

Stopped in for dinner without a reservation but had no problem getting seated right away. Not a large selection of entrees but something for every taste. The décor was very warm and inviting. The waiter apologized as it was his first time as a waiter. He was usually a bus boy but they were short on wait staff so he was pressed into service. He actually did a really good job.

Attended a social function recently with a fairly large group. The restaurant was decorated for the holidays and the atmosphere was stunning. Everyone raved about the food and the friendly servers. I have to say the prime rib was the best I've ever had. It was seasoned perfectly. Food was steaming hot when it arrived at the table.

Locals' mainstay for GREAT pork or ham bar-b-que was Knotty Pines. Recipes bought by The Pines' current owner. Diners were heard salivating about the delicious home-made bar-b-q, French fries with gravy or cheese/gravy; Knotty Pines' coleslaw and home-made rice pudding! Diners were heard making very positive comments about pumpkin beer, and other tasty selections. In fact, I heard diners returned NIGHTLY for their food or drinks in a very pretty and very clean dining environment with big-screen TVs that did not intrude on the diners' environment (could not be heard at dining tables, unless diners chose to move closer to the very attractive bar area). So glad for this food, dining experience and the VERY capable and friendly server. Free parking behind restaurant with entrance thru a lobby; token obtained in restaurant. Very clean silverware, tables, seats and restaurant.
