Really good barbecue, pulled pork is great. Try their Cookhouse Ale, it is a favorite. The bar is lively with tv's for your favorite game. Good place to meet up with friends for a cocktail or dinner.

The brisket served had several slices of juicy, wonderful brisket on top of dry, overcooked slices. Returning food just isn't my "thing" because it ruins everyone else's experience. Alas, I wish I had ordered the ribs. Sides we're all good and the sweet potato, maple,...More

We were hungry after a morning at The Elephant's Trunk outdoor flea market, so we decided to try The Cookhouse. We were greeted immediately and seated by a friendly hostess. Our waiter also appeared promptly to take our drink orders. My husband had iced tea,...More
