We were sat very fast. Our waiter was very pleasant & helpful with opinions on food/drinks & even took the time to explain the sauces. Definitely will be returning!

All we could hear was the axe throwing game! It was like eating in a construction zone. Not again.

I was looking for a place where a large party could sit outside (thanks to Covid) and this popped up on my screen. Great menu choices. The service was TOP notch. There was a small screw up on our order and they took care of it immediately. I recommend!

Excellent food and drinks. The sound of the ax throwing was a bit loud and distracting.

One dinner was delivered way after rest. A server (not ours) came up and asked if we were missing a meal. At that point we received the final dish.

Fun atmosphere with great BBQ choices and sauces to try. Lots of beer on tap and you can try your hand at Axe throwing in cages like batting.

I was so happy about everything about this visit! I made a reservation for 10 people for outdoor because that was the only option. When I went inside, I checked in and I asked the hostess if it’s possible to sit inside because it was so cold outside. She was able to make that happen and I felt so relieved because we had 5 kids with all of us. The waiter we had was amazing and so helpful! He was so nice and so consistent with everything we asked for. I honestly wish I could remember his name and the hostess names. What a feat experience! We are from out of town and was on the way home from a Giants game. A great way to end the night here! Thank y’all so much Walnut Creek SAUCED!!

Ordered the Nachos, and there wasn’t much of the white queso sauce so I asked for more…and they charged me $2.29 for small container. I thought that was ridiculous.

Horrible and very very overpriced BBQ. Really the worst we've ever had. So disappointing. NEVER TRY THIS PLACE!

Overall I thought the visit was fair. For the food I had the brisket which was very good, and the ribs which were not so good (dry, a lot of gristle). The cornbread was very dry and is not served with anything like honey/butter. The service was also just fair. They brought out the food but did not check that everyone received their order so one person was left with no food; after 10 more minutes she had to go back and check on it herself. It was sitting in the kitchen.

The waiter was nice, helpful and attentive. It was cold and we were sat by the door. Okay for me but my mom is 82 and it was crowded, so asking for a different table wasn’t possible. The baked beans were excellent and so were the cheesy grits. The brisket burnt ends and the ribs didn’t have the smoky taste were used to from other bbq joints. It was good but tasted more like oven bbq. I would probably go back. But the prices are really high. 2 drinks, an appetizer and 2 meals was $100. That’s far too high for bbq.

My New BBQ spot. Bye Lucille's, bye famous Dave's and others. We Don't eat pork but there's plenty of beef and chicken options. Very lively inside with the (cool)ax throwing. Next time we will dine outside. Reservations ahead of time work well, thanks Open Table.

We had a party of 10 that was booked for the patio. When I arrived the manager said we were “outside”. If I had wanted to sit in the street I would have requested the street please with all the road noise you can possibly provide.

No apology and no accommodation when I asked if they could do 8 seats where I booked. She checked and said - no the notes don’t say anything about a res on the patio.

Thanks so much - yes our party was not much of a party with load motorcycles and vehicles.

Started with a DBL Southern Peach Tea-Tasty, had two. Went with the 3 meat combo of Brisket-Ribs-Wings- and a side House Salad. Brisket was tender and tasty; Ribs were almost too tender (I like a little more chew) flavor was good; Wings were just right. This place is worth the Bart ride from Oakland, going back on 07 July for more.

Delicious food in fun atmosphere. Located in beautiful Walnut Creek area. Service was impeccable. The hostess was very nice. Our server Ashley was friendly and accommodating. She definitely made our dining experience more enjoyable. It was a busy day but she checked on us to see if things were to our satisfaction. The restaurant’s Interior had a cool industrial feel and the walls had huge tv screens featuring sports. There was outdoor dining space in the back of the restaurant but it was way too hot to be comfortable, despite the large umbrellas in place. They only had 1 fan to try to cool down 1 corner of the spacious outdoor seating area. This place is great for family dining, for hanging out with friends to enjoy food & alcohol or going on a casual date. They even had axe throwing available which is different.

Our server was amazing and extremely attentive. My mom is disabled and my dad doesn't speak English all to well and she was extremely patient and kind. Despite being outdoors, she checked in on us every now and then to make sure we were doing okay and had everything we needed.

Thank you so much!
