This is where some scenes from Top Gun were filmed. The atmosphere is great and there is a nice bar feel. I had a BBQ sandwich that was OK, but not great. The sauce was a bit bland and the prices are high for what...More

Get the brisket and pulled pork. Simply thinking about their brisket is mouthwatering. Ate dinner here with a colleague; he ordered the brisket and pulled pork; I opted for the brisket and babybacks. The ribs were tasty but a little dry/overdone. The staff are friendly...More

This is right across the street from Seaport Village and The Grand Hyatt Manchester. It was nice to get away from the chain restaurants and hotel food. A bit of a hole in the wall, but tasty food. I had the beef brisket with Mac...More
