The food was wonderful and the staff was very accommodating. Their menu has a lot of options, something for everyone. Prices are reasonable and the servings were generous. We will definitely be going again

This was our fourth time at this place, and it's consistently good. We arrived around 6 o'clock for dinner and found a wait time of about an hour. We waited on the deck outside, and even though it was a cool night, we were kept...More

This is a hard review to write. The food was great and the portions large which are important but the rudeness of the hostess and the long delay being served really hurt the experience. I get that places get busy but when someone sits down...More

Since 1991 we've been smokin' and sauce slingin' so we know how to cook - and treat barbeque with the respect it deserves. Our sauce is homemade in our kitchen in Lake George, NY, and our meats are seasoned & cooked to perfection. Ours is some of the best BBQ north of Memphis, and we aren't afraid to say so. But don't take our word for it, come and taste the sensation for yourself. Have us cater your next event!
