Great food and drinks as always! The smoked wings are awesome. We had brisket, burnt ends and the baked bbq Mac-n-cheese with sausage. Delicious meal and great atmosphere
I think they must have changed the hush puppy recipe, or someone put to much or too little of an ingredient. They were tasteless and even with the honey butter on them they really didn’t taste good. I always get them do I know what they are supposed to taste like. Other than that everything was great.
First and probably last time there. Could have gone to Matt the Miller’s or BJ Brewhouse. Tried something new. Food good and
nice staff and atmosphere, but expensive and small portions. Disappointing. Gotta be kidding with that cost for half a meal.
A most pleasant dining experience on patio on a lovely fall evening. Christian, our waiter, served us a wonderful brisket for my wife and a delicious walleye for me. Service and food were excellent
We had a very enjoyable evening dining on the patio while listening to a talented singer, Brandi Sparks. The music was a lovely surprise since we were visiting the area from out of town and found the restaurant on Open Table. Our server was attentive and made good suggestions on the menu. Our food arrived promptly and was delicious.
I have been here before and it was great. This time, just so-so. I ordered the chicken and waffles. Unfortunately, it was so spicy I couldn't even enjoy it and it was soggy at the first bite.
My husband's burger was nothing special. For the prices of the food, I would have expected more.
Love this patio! Burger week burger was so fun.
Great girls' night out.
Did not get sat at a high top which was requested.
Old chairs on wheels, not comfortable
Amazing! As close to real barbecue as you can get in Columbus. Staff was amazing, and the restaurant was so cool with the most chill vibe
Christion was a great server. Food was out fast and delicious, very tender. We did the big plate that feeds 4-6 and it was fun to try it all. Everyone enjoyed it. Music was loud but part of that may be the acoustics. I liked the unique cocktails selection
Awesome food & great service!
Great menu. Great food. Great atmosphere. Definitely going back.
I got the Big Pig and it was a Very damn good sandwich. Lloyd was our server and he did a great job of being professional and getting our food out in a timely fashion.
We sat on the patio and at dinner while listening to live music. It was a perfect Saturday night for my husband and I and our elementary and hs aged kids.
We enjoyed our food. Our server was thoughtful and delightful. This was our first time here and won’t be our last!
Went here for brunch for the first time. The food was amazing and the service impeccable. Will definitely be going back.
Great BBQ! Great Service!
Like many restaurants, B&B was short staffed and while our server was personable, she appeared frazzled from staffing so many tables and closing in on a 12 hr shift. She forgot wine slushy order and initially confused Caesar dressing for blue cheese. It was also 4th Friday in Uptown Westerville so restaurant was full and noisy making conversations more challenging to hear. Shrimp & Grits were delicious and a good size portion, hush puppies were well prepared and not over fried.
Very tasty, service was top notch! Would highly recommend trying all the sauces!
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. We really appreciate it and hope to see you again soon.
Great food and service! We love the brisket and the cornbread!
Patio is very nice. They had a guy singing and playing guitar. Service was good. Food was not great. I'm confident ribs didn't come straight off the smoker...likely cooked days earlier and reheated. Sauces were nasty and seemed watered down. Prices were absurd. $17 for a burger with no sides. We won't be back. It's a lovely building and atmosphere...not sure BBQ is the right fit for the space.
They were out of the biscuits that were supposed to come with my entree. Instead of asking me if I wanted something else, they brought it out sans biscuits and didn’t offer to replace it with another bread or reduce my bill.
Did not have what I wanted. On the menu but did not have it. Second choice was okay. Wife’s food was good, drinks good.
We come here quite often but this visit was a but disappointing. My husband's soda tasted like it had soap in it. The waitress got a replacement, but the drink wasn't comped. We both ordered the loaded baked potato and were disappointed by how little BBQ meat was included.
Had restaurant week menu on a Friday night at 6:30. Not too busy. Located in an old theater uptown. Ambiance was nice, unique. Hostess was sweet, server was friendly but rushed. They weren't busy but the acoustics make the place loud no matter the crowd. Fancy dark wood, horseshoe like bar with lots of space. Great shops all around to browse or buy while you wait for a table if no reservations. That's all the good. Unfortunately restaurant week menu was not well thought out or very good. Fried green tomato appetizer tastes ok but was the best thing out of six dishes. Garlic brisket was fatty, pulled pork and grits was swimming in maple syrup and the banana trifle was reminiscent of candy circus peanuts. All in all menu was over the top sweet, beginning with the featured old fashioned bourbon cocktail. We were constantly sticky throughout the meal and smelled like pancakes well into the night. As a BBQ place they did not promote that at all. Definitely too pricey, $30 for two drinks on the restaurant week menu - too much, but you're paying for location. Will maybe try again for grilled/smoked meats.
I am so sorry to hear about your experience during restaurant week. I do hope you come back and give our smoked meats a try.
They know how to prepare meat!!! The grits and pork were fabulous. My husband had the Mac and cheese with burn ends—amazing. Salad, pimento toast, brownie dessert—great ways to round out the meal. A little noisy but the music was good. Great experience!
Thank you so much! It means a lot to us that you took the time to share your experience. We hope to see you again soon!
Excellent food and service; pulled pork and mac and cheesed the best!
Food was really good but we couldn’t order what we wanted, no burnt ends & no Mahi-mahi
A great night out with friends. Service is always very good. I do wish in the future they'd change to the menu to include small portion sides instead of large side portions at a cost. But food is always delicious.
Food was really good. A little pricey for the portion sizes though.
The carpet was so sticky that I could feel it walking through the entire restaurant and then my shoes stick to floors after I left. This tells me that the place as a while can’t be exceptionally clean. Order was messed up but they handled it appropriately.
Friday night dinner….music was very loud! My husband and I were yelling across the table to be heard. Our server was fantastic and kept apologizing for the long wait. Ordered hush puppies when we first sat down and ordered drinks. They didn’t show up until a minute before our entrees got there. I was craving the hush puppies after having them at the Canal Winchester location and they were so good, we ordered more! But at Westerville….horrible. Didn’t taste anything the same. We’re really firm and overcooked. So disappointing. Our server brought us the cornbread instead to replace the hush puppies. It was undercooked! Raw batter in the middle. I got the Mac and cheese with the burnt ends brisket and coleslaw. Good, but the brisket was not as tender as I thought it would be. I think this is a good restaurant, but I think this location needs to make some changes. I’ll go back to Canal Winchester if I want to go again!
Made a reservation only to get there and it was closed. Very disappointed as parked blocks away and it’s closed ??! How can you take a reservation and not be open.
very Rude service by the waitress!! And no ribs available.
Hush puppies were soaked in grease like a sponge. Even a puddle on the plate. Lots of fat on the brisket. We have ate at two of the other locations and definitely felt the food wasn’t as good here. Our server was nice and very attentive. Loved sitting on the patio with the music.
Half-sisters stuff done z song z fibroid fit to it go my my TD
Wonderful, as usual.
Menu not the same as online. Noise level MUCH louder than on previous visits. Couldn't have a conversation. Requested the volume be turned down but it didn't happen. Good was good, but again, not as reflected on the Website and disappointed.
Fantastic brunch! Service was excellent, food delicious, and atmosphere wonderful if you want inside or out.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and experience! It really means a lot to us. We can't wait to welcome you back.
Very nice. Loved the shrimp & grits
