    The meat was extremely fatty. The tortilla chips we really stale. The fried pickles were gross…..no flavo and huge clips of flour. Do not recommend

    This place used to be so good; however, it has gone straight downhill. We paid $60.00 for dinner for two people that was inedible. The brisket was beyond awful (fatty and cut with the grain, so very tough). The bread basket was terrible (ice cold and completely dried out). Our waitress was sweet, but we will NOT be back.

    Wasn't very encouraged when asking the young host as he seated us what he suggested or for what the place was best known, and he replied, "I don't know. I never eat here." Our server was attentive and engaging but had poor knowledge of the menu. The food was good; I'd go back, while blaming leadership for these mentioned shortcomings for poor staff training. Did see a lot of staffers sitting around, sort of like 20 percent of the staff doing 80 percent of the work. Now I know why it was the only place in St. Charles Old Town I could get a reservation on a Friday night at prime dinner time.

    The foodnwas great and our server Britany was fantastic. From the time we sat down she got on our drink order. She brought me a beer menu we thought that was great. She got our order for drinks right away. Came back and took our dinner order. Food was great! It was our first time eating here. I highly recommend them and would love to go back soon again.

    We have eaten here many times prior to our visit last night. It was extremely disappointing. We will not return. If there had only been one issue or maybe even two it would be excusable but that was not the case. We were a party of four and had reservations. We were seated fairly quickly but were not waited on for approximately 20 minutes! When she arrived we said we would like to order drinks and our meal immediately as we had concert tickets at 7:00. After another 10-15 minutes my husband received his beer in a bottle with no glass which he had asked for, but she did not bring the other three drinks. I said could I please get my water and she said oh yes ok. We waited an additional 15-20 minutes and our food was brought by another server but we did not have our drinks. When I asked the server that brought our food if we could get our drinks she said I’m not your server!! The majority of the food was barely warm and my brisket was half fat. After another 10 minutes our server came by and said is everything ok? We said we would like our drinks. She said oh ok. We took the majority of our food with us as we ran out of time and we finally received our drinks at the same time we asked for our bill. I realize restaurants can have “off” nights but this was too much!

    This used to be one of the best restaurants in St. Charles. The BBQ was good and the bourbon selection was stellar. It had been years since I've been but was back in the area after moving away and decided this would be a good place to go. I wasn't impressed. The food was just okay. I got the brisket with green beans and potato salad and a couple of their signature cocktails. The brisket came out less than lukewarm. The potato salad tasted like the pre-made stuff you get in Walmart. The green beans were good but when they are the best part of your meal, something is wrong. The portion sizes seemed to be about half what they used to be. I left the place still hungry. The biggest disappointment was that they used to give you a bourbon menu with the food menu when you sat down and you could select from all the different bourbons or ask them to make on of their cocktails with a specific kind of bourbon. I didn't get one or even see one. I had to take a drink menu from a different table just to see what the drinks were. The whole experience was just a bit of a let down for a place that used to be so good. It feels like maybe they are struggling to stay afloat and may be cutting corners to save money. It's really kind of sad.

    We’re pretty much ignored even though we had a reservation. Once we flagged down a waitress we were waited on pretty well. Food was decent but the initial experience tainted our evening.

    The A/C is not working properly, the restaurant is dirty, the kitchen was terribly slow. There was hardly anybody there and it took 45 minutes to get the small dinner salad. They were out of the pulled pork so I got the turkey, which seemed like processed turkey that was packed together because you could not see any muscle fibers in it. This used to be such a nice place but it appears like it maybe going out of business soon.

    Place was not busy, long wait for food. Had the mixed bread appetizer. Bread was hard & dry. Baked potato was warm at best. Baked sweet potatoes were excellent - hot. Sandwich buns tasted old, meat was ok. Waitress was very attentive.

    We always bike by this place finally had the opportunity to try it. The place was not that busy. Food came out quick. Someone else delivered it to us versus the waitress. We had to wait for utensils and napkins plus ketchup. Flagged down just someone who worked there. The bread used on the burger tasted stale. It fell off the bottom and crumbled so we ended up just cutting up the meat and eating it with utensils. Ordered a second drink as we got our meal. The waitress swung by the table after we finished our meal and said my drink was on its way. So about 15-20 minutes after I ordered the drink. The restaurant was still not busy . I told her to cancel the drink and bring us the check. The check came out promptly. Sad. It looked appealing until we had dinner there.

    The meat was good. The service was terrible. According to their webpage, many of their appetizers are half off during Happy Hour. However, that is not true anymore. We had to ask for refills on our drinks, and silverware to eat with after our food was delivered. The famous baked beans seemed to be poured straight from the can to the table. The building looked so cool from the outside and I was looking forward to taking out-of-town guests there next month, but we will not be going.

    We were there Father’s Day for dinner. Waited 15 minutes, then had to go find a waiter. When our waitress came to the table we realized we had seen her sitting at a table outside when we arrived. There were several things not available to order, including ribs & coleslaw. When our food was served the temperature ranged from lukewarm to cold. The brisket two of us had was not tender. Altogether this meal was a disappointment. It will be a while before we go there again.

    Multiple good items were no longer available. Website lists a significant number of bourbons and whiskeys. When we asked the server, she wrote down 6 different ones that were available. Huge disappointment compared to previous visits.

    Air conditioning not in when almost 100 outside. Service was very slow. Many people working there and kept walking buy our table. Took over 10 minutes after sitting down to get a hello. Once we got our food nobody checked back with us. I would have had more to drink but nobody checked. Had to flag waiter down to pay check. They were out of ribs. Other did very bland and dry.

    Service was very spotty - our server was great when she was around, but she disappeared for long stretches. Food was good. They didn’t have the air on, a questionable decision on a 90° day.
