Outstanding. First the pulled pork sandwhich. The pork was melt in your mouth . Never had better and we've had a lot. The bun was outstanding as well. Next was the brisket. It too was delish. Juicy and nice flavor. Third was slab of ribs....More

I ordered the large pulled pork sandwich and it was great. The variety of BBQ sauces was also great to have. However, the cornbread and the fries were not very good. The cornbread was almost tasteless and the fries were so overbearing with herbs, spices,...More

I had rib tips not tender. Fries were good but we felt like once we got our meals...we were expected to leave...place is stark. Pulled pork was just ok. Probably won't go back. Steamboat was better.

I've visited this restaurant several times and excellent every visit. I usually have the brisket and sausage. Fried pickles are great. Good choice of sauces to choose from. Just wish it was open later!

Absolutely nothing bad to say. Very reasonable prices and a wide menu. They do offer beer but not wine.

I had the Brisket and beans and coleslaw all were excellent. With a lot of restaurants the sides are an after thought. Not at firewater. The beans were infused with a nice smoke flavor and they were savory and sweet. A bonus was the fact...More

You could do it. I'm here now and you use about 80% of the seating...but it could work.
