Loud, kids running everywhere. Jennifer, our server, was amazing. The food was excellent.

Went here to celebrate our son’s birthday. I ordered the brisket and pulled pork combination; my son and husband ordered the brisket and ribs combination and my daughter ordered steak. The ribs were so tough that they couldn’t eat them; the steak was so chewy that she couldn’t eat it and the pulled pork and brisket were so smothered in bbq sauce that..guess what...I couldn’t eat it. It was loud; the floor sticky and filthy. Took my daughter to the restroom and the vulgar profanities scribbled on the wall were absolutely disgusting. The only good thing about our visit was our waiter was very nice.

Son plays soccer at Chelsea Piers on Saturday evenings. We come most every weekend, often with friends and family. Hostesses, wait and bus staff are friendly. Service is super quick. Food is excellent. It’s not like I’m in bbq heaven, but for a place of its size it’s damn good. Make reservations because the wait can be a hour and a half on the weekend.
The wings are great. So is the shrimp boil. The pulled pork is very good. The ribs and brisket are better.
Corn bread is legit. BBQ beans with pork is also great.
Come hungry.

Overall food was very good and plentiful. Had an issue with table readiness and manager immediately rectified it and credited all appetizers. Would go back.

Service was spotty at best- waiter did not understand my food allergy and did not remove an item that I am allergic to from my meal. They brought be a new meal. I had to wait 25 minutes and the hamburger was raw in the inside. The only upside was that they did take it off the bill.

It's always excellent with lots of choices. Rib are great as were all the sides. Very reasonable prices and good service on a very busy Saturday night.

We eat at this restaurant often. Great ambiance and the food is terrific. Overall, from management, to the wait and bar staff, the employees are very engaging and positive. That was not the case with our hostess last week. When we entered there were two hostesses at the greeting station. I told one that we had a reservation for 6:45 and we would love a booth if possible (I had also noted as such on OpenTable). One hostess (who was pleasant) looked and found us one. The second hostess, grabbed menus and with out saying a word, started walking away. Apparently leading us to a table. We followed. She put the menus on a table, never saying a word to us and walked off. Normally, we might not take notice, but, it was so uncharacteristic of the restaurant and the employees that we have encountered that it must be noted.

There is an extensive menu, but we always order the ribs. They are wonderful. Nice selection of sides and my husband was very happy with the beer our server, Chuck, suggested. Prices are very reasonable. I like the convenience of making a reservation on Open Table. There is a large parking lot--another plus.

We were celebrating my son's 9th birthday and they were out of Chocolate Ice Box Cake...his favorite. So we didn't get a dessert with a birthday candle. This was our second time visiting when they ran out of chocolate ice box cake!
