Delicious authentic Southern! Pic nic tables on the screen porch. The sound of rushing water from the creek.

One of my favorite places to eat. Great value for the money. BBQ sauce is the greatest I've ever tried. Beautiful looking over river to eat if you never been it's a must.

We finally decided to try this place since it was local and other family members tried it and liked it. We weren't all that impressed.

We and our friends come here for a great atmosphere and delicious food. The atmosphere is down to earth, and this is one of the best restaurants for ribs in the area. Worth going to!

Service and food was only meh. The view was pleasant. Seating was on a porch but since it was the off season they had plexiglass covering the screened Windows. It is sort of self service and I expected more. Was ok.

Had the creek on one side and a lady making glass figurines on the other. Had the pulled pork plate with fried corn and Brunswick stew. Everything was... More

I had an issue with the cleanliness of things a few months ago and even mentioned it in a previous review, hoping things would change...but they didn't. The ketchup bottles must have been purchased 10 years ago and refilled since. They are disgusting!! I suppose the concept of a roll of paper towels on the table goes along with BBQ,... More
