Restaurant was clean. Food not bad. Customer service good. But if you are hungry better go some place else. Portions are very small with the exception of the rack of ribs.More

I am sorry that you were not satisfied with your meal. We have been portioning our meals the same for a long while. May I ask if this was the barbecue, the sides, or every item you purchased? I will talk with the Kitchen Manager...More

Excellent BBQ and picnic area. Not expensive and didn't feel like a tourist. Felt like a local at this place. Highly recommended!
