Fun BBQ and bar...very “local” in an old barn. smoker as big as a car parked out front and belching smoke an good smells. All you can eat ribs for 1$.....but have to buy 2 sides @ $3.50...still a good deal...great local beer...all very tasty! Nice wait staff

We make a trip here every year during our stay at SugarBush.
They have a simple menu with ribs, chicken and Tex-mex entrees. There's a bar if you want a place to hang out. I remember some pool tables from past trips. They get real busy on the weekends. The food is good and the prices fair. The place is an old building (converted barn I think) with a rustic feel.
A great "Vermont" family place for anyone. Come in your ski clothes, muddy boots or the best clothes you brought...you may feel out of place with the latter. Recommended!

Great food for all our out of town family and friends who came to VT for my daughter and new son-in-laws wedding. We had the after after party at the smokehouse from 11-1 pm. Quite the spread after the wedding and bonfire. Delicious!

We were looking forward to eating at this restaurant all day, in fact we knew what we wanted to order: their St. Louis Ribs. We have had them here before and they were outstanding. We arrived at the restaurant about 6:30 and were surprised only one other couple were dining there. Several patrons were at the bar which was understandable since it was Thirsty Thursday and $3 drafts were available. We ordered our beers and our ribs and sides and they arrived promptly. They were of a generous size and looked delicious but looks are deceiving. After sawing away at the ribs for 10 minutes and getting no meat for the effort we gave up and called our server over. The meat on the rigs was red and severely undercooked. This place prides itself on being a local BBQ place with a smoker out front but the kitchen help that night had absolutely no idea how long to cook or smoke a rack of ribs. Mistake #1 was to fire up the smoker too late in the day to do any serious cooking and mistake #2 was serving something like that to paying customers. Our mistake was in accepting the substitute of an unappetizing pile of pulled pork. We should have paid for the beers we consumed and dined elsewhere. Lesson learned. We will probably revisit in a few months, but we will be far more critical next time.

Recommended by our Inn keeper. It was mostly locals when we went for the Thursday $1 rib night. A wide variety of local craft beers. Excellent ribs with interesting sauces. We ate out on the deck and watched the evening roll in. With our ribs we enjoyed the home made baked beans and mac and cheese. Mike also said their Wed. night Hamburger Specials is worth a visit.
The meal smelled so good I had to try it before I could take a photo.
There is live music some evenings at this restaurant.
