We were very disappointed with the food. The ribs were pure fat and the mac and cheese was very bland. My sandwich had barely any meat on it, mainly lettuce. The drink selection was nil due to covid, which we understand, but paying $10 for a draught beer is a very steep. We will not be coming back here.

Delicious meal and a gorgeous restaurant. My husband and I shared a platter. And while the amount of food might have been a little less than other smokehouses, it was MORE than enough for two, and everything was perfection!

Disappointed with our second visit for dinner. We ordered the same nacho platter, however, it did not look the same or taste the same. It was mainly nacho chips with hardly any toppings and lots of Bq sauce.
My husband and I both ordered the trout again, although the fish had a good taste, the sauce on top was minimal compared to our previous visit.
Too bad as we live 5 mins from the restaurant.

The side dishes were really good. The Bratwurst was good, the ribs were really good and the Pork was also good. The brisket which was a surcharge of 3.00 was overcooked, dry and sliced too thick. I will not order the brisket again. I was so looking forward to dining there so perhaps my expectations were too high. Serving spoon should be supplied with the side dishes. The staff seem to be trying to please.

Loved the food and the service. Gorgeous place. Look forward to seeing it in full swing. Large portions and homemade everything make the prices reasonable in my opinion.
Only glitch was with OpenTable. I had made the original reservation for 4 people a couple of weeks prior. The day before our dinner, the other couple had to back out (Covid).
I wanted to let the restaurant know they would now have room for 2 more but when I edited my reservation from 4 to 2, the system said that I could have a table at either 4:30pm or 8:30pm so losing my 6pm slot. So I did not go thru with the edit. I feel that left the restaurant short. Can that be fixed?

It’s the second time I have been there. This time I feel disappointed with the food. I order two meats plate. The side dishes were poor taste. The Turkey so dry, and the sausage of my friend order with very funny taste.
The service was good, the waiters apologized for the flavour concern.
I guess next time I will go there for only a beer.

Everything was delicious. This time around I had the buttermilk brined fried chicken. It was juicy and the spices used were wonderful. It had a little kick to it, which I loved. The mac and cheese was also really good; I find it's hard to get a decent mac and cheese that isn't homemade. My partner loved the brisket, as usual!

Excellent food and service. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and large enough portions to satisfy a large eater or provide leftovers if wanted. Only real thing I can’t understand is the $3 up charge for brisket on the platter. Much smaller portion size of brisket compared to turkey or hot links so doesn’t seem justified to me even with the extra cook time needed.
