Service was poor, and the quality was poor. Pricy place to not be satisfied with. The last several trips over the past year have all been subpar. My guest( who wanted to try it) will not be back either.

I recall that the beer prices were reasonable which made it tempting. I had to go to a meeting afterwards so I ordered ice tea. I will go back again for the beer and bbq.
