    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.

    Fourty minutes to get table service. Below average. Twenty minutes for meals to be served excellent ,all meats were of excellent quality and flavour other than one chicken drumstick that was not cooked through. Also no mention of the note provide on the booking that this was a birthday dinner,not asking for freebies was just asking for being recognised for the birthday person.

    The food was really nice even though we ordered brisket and got ribs. The service was average, not very friendly staff that night. We were also overcharged but that is something we should’ve checked before paying. Glad we tried it but not for everyone.

    The food and service were amazing. I have food allergies and the staff were very knowledgeable and understanding. There were also many options for me to choose from. Great value for money. The dining room was very loud and echoed, but they were very busy so understandable.

    The chicken I received was raw & the waiter said it wasn’t - there was blood coming out. A child’s meal got missed had to ask twice where it was. A waiter spilt a drink on 2 people at the table but was nice enough to take the spilled drink off our bill.

    What a great place!! The atmosphere here is very cool, great service and so quick for the meals to come out. Great options on the menu particularly with the bbq meats and pretty reasonable prices too. Having options you can share on a platter is such a good idea. We had the brisket, Southern fried chicken and smoked links (sausage) which were all really tasty and well cooked along with a nice creamy mac & cheese, collated greens and the corn which was so juicy and had a great flavour. Definitely recommend to check it out. Presume it was the owner we spoke to when we arrived and left and he was fantastic, so personable, you can tell he loves his bbq and his business but all the staff were so genuinely friendly. Great look, great food, great service👍🏻

    Great food , and service was fantastic, the owner chatted to us , and regularly asked how everything was, We ordered a variety of food, from pulled pork, to onion rings, smoked and grilled watermelon salad and a double beef cheese Burger, which was moist and very tasty, just a little to much mustard for me. But otherwise great place,and looking forward to going back. 👍🏽

    Made a reservation. Turned up on time. The restaurant was fairly quiet. Shown to a table straight away. Orders taken for drinks then. 35 minutes later still no drinks, no order taken for food so we left.

    Nice clean venue, friendly staff, had to wait for 30 minutes for a waiter to come and take our drink order as we were told to sit and they would be there for our order soon. One of our meals did not turn up, we had to go and ask for it. Food was average. Maybe just an off night for them.
