Very friendly staff. Good srvice. Good beer. Got the ribs...way too dry. But the sides were great (mashed taters with garlic and black bean salad). My wife got the pulled pork and liked it a lot.

Stopped by for dinner after skiing with the kids. The pulled pork sandwich was awesome!! My 13-year old had the best country fried chicken and gravy "in my life". Video games for the kids and great selection of craft beers.
