The portions are large, and reasonably priced, the server was personable, and very attentive. If you're on a motorcycle, the parking lot is challenging.

The food is great and fast. We loved the screened in back porch with the view and sounds of Jonathan Creek. Do yourself a favor and stop in!

We finally decided to try this place since it was local and other family members tried it and liked it. We weren't all that impressed. There is a big smoker barrel out front under their sign so we knew they make it on premise. We...More

Is there outdoor dining? We have our two dogs with us on vacation and would like to take them everywhere we go. If you have outdoor dining, can we bring them?

No. It closes November 2nd and re-opens May 1st. If you're there twixt these dates; EAT THERE! It is soooo good. Try the brisket and deep-fried corn. You'll have to cross your legs when you eat it because it's THAT good.
