First let me compliment the restaurant for offering free meals to veterans on veterans day. Second, the staff was amazing, even with a non-stop crowd there were nothing but smiles on both the welcoming and wait staff. We enjoyed watching 2 different TV's with College...More

We were there on a quiet Thursday. The food was good. My wife had a big salad & I had the BBQ brisket. Wine was fairly reasonable, and the staff was good. They had several different sauces to choose from, some hotter than others.

We love to do happy hour here on our weekends. You cannot beat half off appatisers and special drink prices. All while viewing part of a game. Love those burnt ends!

My wife had the ribs, and said they had very little taste. She had to put lots of barbecue sauce on it to make it tasty. I had a pulled pork sandwich, that had the same issue. I too had to pour on the sauce....More

I've been at more than a half dozen, and never seen or known anything about a Happy Hour, even when I've been there at late afternoon. I'm sure the answer is "No".
