Love the smell of the apple wood smoke inside the restaurant. Brisket, ribs and wings are excellent. Good selection of craft beers and bourbons. Nice patio on the street.

Poor quality food. Not worth the visit. Salty food, over spiced, French fries that are also over cooked.

Great BBQ with a good selection of items. It is possible to sit out and people watch on Bernard street. Portions huge. Ok selection of beers. You order and pay at the desk although they did bring me a second beer.

I was in Kelowna 2 years ago, and tried out Memphis Blues in the heart of downtown. It was great. We had a platter, and I was over the moon about the sausage, bbq sauce and cornbread. We just got back from Kelowna again, and...More

Thank you for your question. We do not use nuts other than walnuts on site - no peanuts whatsoever. However, we do use bread from a bakery that is NOT nut-free and cannot guarantee that there will not be traces of peanuts... More

Interior Health regulations do not allow dogs on patios. Despite this, we can sometimes accommodate if no one else is out there! Best to call us directly to inquire.
