Stopped in during the week for a late lunch. Great fish sandwich, awesome BBQ, homemade chips were also good but the staff was the best, wonderful and very pleasant. Wife and I will definitely go back when in town.

Stopped in Grafton for an overnight stay and this was our first stop. It was a Wednesday afternoon so it was pretty empty. My husband and had lunch and honestly we have no complaints at all. My husband had half rack and I asked for the pulled pork with no bun. We had so much food neither could finish it.... More

We can't say no service, only because we were given our fountain sodas. We were trying to get a bite to eat to support a local business, after our river road drive. We stopped in, went inside to order, just a bbq sandwich & burger. We're given our drinks and we're told to sit anywhere & they would bring it... More

Always a lot of bikers coming here. But you can go inside to order food and relax, or go outside to the picnic tables or bar tables also. Great pork steaks!

After ziplining, we popped into this place on a whim. No plan. It was a Wednesday, so the place wasn't busy. We sat outside because inside was warmer than outside, and the noise of the huge fans was too much for me. The wait staff was timely and wonderful. Very attentive and friendly. The food was amazing. Apparently, this is... More

Good BBQ and the service was friendly and good. Beer was cold. Parking may be a little crowded even on a bike but its worth stopping at.

This is a fun restaurant/bar that welcomes all, but has a huge biker following. On the weekends it is packed with lots of bikers, fun, music and good food. However, this time we stopped on a Monday evening. We sat outside to watch the river flow by and I have to say this was very peaceful and beautiful. There was... More

Does the menu look familiar...Big Kahuna, maybe!!! Great menu...great bbq and pizza. Reasonable prices. Pick up dinner for the boat/dock. Come on people... "bikers" that can afford $30-50k bikes; $500-1k leather; and other accessories. ..maybe your lawyer, dentist, vet, yes orthopedic surgeon, or your neighbor next door. COME in strike up a conversation ...enjoy a bucket of beer!!! Love people... More

We enjoyed the hog pit. Some might not - it is a bar, and even on a quiet Sunday afternoon was a bit loud and laid back. But totally our scene. The staff was great, food was good and price was affordable. As to the barbecue itself - a tangy southern type barbecue. The flavor was great and the meat... More
