We have stopped here twice for lunch, and have enjoyed it but can't say we were impressed. The food is of average quality, but the portions are great. I am picky about cornbread, but theirs is good. Husband likes the ghost pepper BBQ sauce.

We were greeted, seated then given menus. Then, we found out that we would have to stand in a long line to place our order at the counter. We waited for 5-10 minutes but, ultimately, decided to try another restaurant because of the wait. I...More

We had the brisket, pulled pork and gravy fries. Huge portions. The food was awesome. Service was very quick and friendly. Like everywhere at the lake, it's not cheap. But it was delicious!

Great BBQ spot that is a favorite of the family and has become our traditional first stop for lunch when visiting the lake area. Brisket and ribs are our top choices, and the cornbread is simply the best. We do miss the boneless wings and...More

BBQ is very good but stay away from the ribs (as other reviews have said) and the chicken wings unless you like them cool to lukewarm. Both were not hot and had sauce added to them just prior to serving. The better choices were any...More

Really good barbeque, but you're better off with the pulled meat than you are with the ribs. My wife got the pulled chicken salad, and definitely had the better of our two meals. I got the half-rack of ribs, which were good, but not as...More

The food is delicious and the portions are very large. The inside dinning room is very rustic and there is ample outside tables with umbrellas. There are no waiters; you just go to the window and order. The service is quick and easy. We had...More

For all of the awards they post the BBQ chicken sandwich was just okay. The BBQ brisket sandwich was very good. This is a tad bit pricey however. We got 2 sandwiches and one side and paid about $30.More
