    Really great venue, great atmosphere and the food was nice and good value for money. My only issue was for a group of 4 you only get your table for 1.5 hours. We knew this when booking but in the end it just felt a bit rushed. Would still definitely go back

    Quiet disappointed with our experience. Service was slack - we had to prompt the staff to take our drink and meal orders. When the staff finally came to our table to take our orders and we proceeded to list what we would like, did they then decide to notify us that there were no ribs or brisket left - which were the two main food items we were after. Meals came out quite quickly which was surprising. Then we ordered dessert only to be told again that one of the dessert options wasn't available - of course it was the one we wanted. I think it's a great idea that staff notify patrons of what's NOT AVAILABLE to order when we are seated to avoid continual disappointment. Can't say we'll be back in a hurry.

    Third time dining here. Once again everything was five stars. The only improvement I could suggest would be the addition of a small, less spicy menu for the younger family members. That being said the family all very much enjoyed their meals.

    The food was absolutely amazing, however a little bit pricey for the amount you receive (eg. Corn bread). The staff were very professional and engaging, however it could be difficult to get their attention at time (maybe short staffed), ambience & music was awesome! Will definitely be back tho.

    Would 110% recommend this place. The food was amazing. The serving sizes were large. For 2 people, we walked out so full and happy with the quality of food we ate. The music was a bit loud, however still upbeat as we ate. The staff were so helpful and always felt welcoming to our questions. Will absolutely be back again!

    I don't usually write reviews but this is honestly one if the best restaurants in town. I have dined here a few times now and the atmosphere is always great! The owners are always happy to have a chat and the staff are so friendly. The food is so good and so our eyes are always bigger than our stomachs so we usually have left overs for the next day as well! I will always recommend this place to everyone.

    The space was clean and inviting. The staff (lady with purple hair) did eye roll us when we walked in, the guy (owner I think) was lovely and the lady with long hair (maybe owners wife?) Needs to put her hair up, she was playing with her hair while taking the next tables order, nobody wants hair in their food, every hospitality space it should be made a rule of having your hair tied back. The prices are crazy $63 for 2 people with no alcohol ordered and I didn't order any type of drink. $15 for Mac n cheese, we paid extra for brisket and bacon, the brisket was tiny pieces perhaps 5 tiny pieces max and I couldn't find the bacon. Although it was pretty much empty the one other table that did show up was seated right next to us and was extremely loud I struggled to hear my husband sitting right next to me.

    Great Food with great service. But the restaurant is very cold. Had hyperthermia by the end of dinner. Yes we were inside. Not near the door. When the servers have to wear big jumpers, you know that you need many layers to keep warm. Will return but may have to wait for warmer weather.

    We we well looked after by the staff. Food was good, Service was good. Only thing was the portion size of the slices of the pies for dessert could have been a bit more generous for the $12 price.

    The food was great especially the corn bread, brisket, pulled pork, burnt ends, corn and desserts. Found the ribs quite dry and they could have down with a lick of sauce over the top. Found the service for drinks ordered exceptionally slow and we would have consumed many more rounds of drinks whilst there if service for drinks was quicker. The tables where a little crammed in with the people sitting on tables either side with the chair backs up against ours. It made it difficult when trying to get up to use the amenities as you had to ask people if they would move their chairs in a bit to get past.
