Great place for BBQ. I had the brisket and a stuffed baked potato loaded with cheese, sour cream and pulled pork. Great atmosphere on a patio next to the cruise dock. Fantastic food....dream service.. I will be back when back in town.

This was a great place for dinner if you like BBQ. They had both indoor (air conditioned) and outdoor seating, courteous staff, lots of TVs playing sports and the evening we were there, a live band around 8:30PM. Good atmosphere, very casual.

We had the pulled pork, ribs and brisket. Food was not bad, not great. BBQ sauce was unusual and had a artificial smokey flavor to it. The fries were good. They have an outside bar and an inside bar, both were nice, but the outside was a little nicer. The bartender was very nice and even made me a special cocktail because I couldn't figure out what I wanted. We love trying BBQ places, and we weren't expecting much with this area, but if your dying for BBQ, it's an average time.

Perhaps it was an off-day or they were running out of brisket? The brisket sandwich had only fat and the dredges left in the pan on it. The slaw that should have accompanied it wasn't there. The mac and cheese was okay, but didn't have the nice char to it that seemed to be one all the other macs I saw go by my table. The server was solo, which explains the very bad service. Regardless, there were TV's to watch for Sunday afternoon football games.
