Food was very good overall. The barbecue was excellent with a nice assortment of sauces. On Wednesday nights there is a wonderful pianist/singer providing entertainment.
It was a good night out!

The waitress somehow forgot the appetizer order and should have done something as a complementary service but didn’t. Overall, the BBQ was OK. But this rating is based off of BBQ eaten in Texas, Georgia, Missouri and other states known to be masters of the craft. The pulled chicken was overly dry, but edible.
