Overall, the experience was quite lovely! The food was delicious, atmosphere was energetic, live music playing, and pleasantly crowded. The only down fall was when the waiter came up to my 70 year old mother after she had paid and announced to the entire table that she did not tip enough. She explained that she gave him a 15% tip because we had waited over an hour for our food with very few water refills. I have never had wait staff be so bold. It was very awkward and quite frankly uncalled for.

This place is excellent! If you get nice weather and can sit outside, I highly recommend it! The outdoor setting is amazing. Live music and just amazing atmosphere. Food was delicious too!

Host and staff are always awful. Waiters are usually good. Food is good but nothing makes up for the consistently rude and awful staff. We live 4 blocks away and come 2-4 times a month so we have lots of experience. If it weren’t for the outdoor area for the kids we wouldn’t keep coming. But, the kids like the outdoor play areas.

I made a reservation 10 days in advance and once we arrived they told us it would be 45 minutes till they had a table ready… it didn’t make sense since I had a reservation and had confirmed my reservation. The hostess where rude and sassy about the whole situation. Once we did get seated we where then told that it would be an hour wait for food. The food was great but the fact that we had to wait almost an hour to be seated and then another hour for food was ridiculous.

Loved going here for lunch on Sunday. This place is lively and a little loud outside (because of the great live music) so just keep that in mind. We sat inside and were still able to hear the live music. Burnt ends with grits was incredible, mimosas were refreshing, and the brisket queso is a must.

There were way too many people, hard to even get into the parking lot. We waited after our reservation time but were finally seated, at which point the waiter told us immediately that the kitchen was backed up and everything was going to take at least 45 min to an hour to come out. We ended up ordering right then and there and tried to get things we knew wouldn’t take that long.
Valet line took 30 minutes to get our car, they lost our ticket and couldn’t find our car fob.
I understand it is a busy place, but it was so over crowded that it severely affected the experience. Most likely won’t be back.

The food was amazing. Everything was perfect I definitely recommend this place. Only thing is if you’re not a fan of loud noises I would ask for inside seating because the cars can be very loud.

Their signature drink, the Smoky Rose, was easily the best Gin drink I've ever had. Weather was perfect for open air dining and The evening was just great. Mildly disappointed in the brisket, it was kind of tough and dry? But the turkey was perfect so perhaps I just got an over-cooked bit of brisket? Would def recommend, great place if you enjoy open air dining experiences.

My husband's chicken was dry, my cheesesteak is NOT authentic. Lighten up on the onions, and fry them before putting them in the sandwich.
The roll was subpar. The margaritas were good, but expensive.
We will probably not return.

We came for my dad’s birthday dinner on a Wednesday. It was really busy! But our food came out quickly and it was delicious! The Mac and cheese is pretty bland, but the brisket queso was outstanding.

It took an hour to just get our appetizers. We made our reservation at 5:00 so we could have time to get to a nearby event at 7:00. We didn’t get our food until 6:10. We gulped our food down and ran out only to have to wait for valet to get our car. Barely made it to our event. The food is great just and the outdoor patio is beautiful. Just give yourself plenty of time.

The food and service were outstanding. The venue also has a great vibe. We really enjoyed our dinner. The only downside is that it is a little loud between roadnoise, people and music when the outdoor roof is on. When the roof opened as it got cooler, the noise factor was much better. We had a great time and highly recommend this spot. We will be back!

Great outside dining under trees and cafe lights. Good vibe with lots of people and party groups. Menu has good prices for all kinds of BBQ plates and combos. We had the delicious brisket and the smoked chicken enchiladas. Be sure to make reservations.

Came on a Friday nite - my husband, myself and our daughter. Glad we sat inside because outside really loud and busy with lots of children running around - not a bad thing at all, but we wanted something a little quieter which we got sitting in the bar area. Our waitress was fantastic - gave us great suggestions for what to order. The brisket tacos, brisket nachos and the smoked salmon burger were all great. Drinks were great - not cheapy, sweet margaritas, but really good ones. Will definitely be back.
