Friendly service. As far as food, everything tastes really good, the biscuits and pork ribs were by far the best. Other than that, most of the meats were dry, as though they’d been sliced well in advance and lost all their juicyness, especially the pork belly and brisket. Would try it again, because flavors were good, the texture was just off.

Came for my mom’s birthday and she loved it. Was a bit noisy inside but that’s the ambiance. Drinks were in huge mason jars so we didn’t constantly need refills.

Weather was rainy so restaurant did not have seating for us when we arrived as they had moved everyone indoors to accommodate. We were seated at a bar-like table by the window where cold air was coming in and our food got cold immediately. Server was lovely.

I hope that you will visit us another time when the weather isn't an obstacle in giving you the experience that you deserve. Greg

Food was well prepared. Servers were very efficient and friendly. I would have liked to order the fried chicken as a complete dinner with two sides like all of the other entrees. Instead, I had to order the chicken by the number of pieces and then pay $10 to order two sides. Nice selection of beers and cocktails.

The food was awesome and our server went above and beyond, as did other staff who weren’t assigned to our table; would recommend to anyone and will definitely come back again.

Biscuits are most excellent. However, the outdoor setting lacked any feeling with metal chairs and you are staring at traffic. Indoors looks more appealing.

Thank you for stopping by. I'm sorry that you felt the patio lacked in ambience. We have worked hard since your last visit to improve. I hope that you will give us another chance very soon. Greg

Their beer prices have skyrocketed. Stuck with water this time around rather than spending fenway park prices on a beer outside the park.

Thank you for reaching out regarding your recent dining experience with us. I'm sorry that you found the prices out of line with expectations. If you have any specifics to share, I would appreciate your insight. I will share my email with you separately and I will also pass your comment on to our beverage director. I am glad to know that pricing didn't take away from the overall experience and we hope to see you again very soon. Greg

Always order the fried chicken, but on this visit they only had drumsticks (prefer white meat)..so ended up having the ribs which are very good and my son ordered his usual, beef brisket which is excellent! Tender and juicy. They were out of the fried okra which we really like, too, but tried the torn potatoes which are really good. Thankfully, biscuits were still available which are the best around!
