    BBQ is ok. Not great. Sliced brisket had some large amounts of fat in it. Pulled pork was not memorable. Burnt end brisket was the most memorable of the meats served. Service was sub-par. We were seated by a hostess who barely talked. We were served by three different servers and it took a long time to get our drinks and food, especially when compared to others seated after us who got their food before us. Overpriced drinks and food. Underwhelming service. Not going back.

    The Waitress we had was really nice but she was overly busy with too many tables. We waited a long time for any drinks to come and your packed in so tight it’s hard to get around. The food was decent a bit over priced for what you get. We probably won’t rush to come back anytime soon

    Tried for lunch, Greeted by indifferent staff. Never made eye contact, lead us to table zero personality. Waiter was also working the bar, and had zero time to anticipate and or ask id we needed anything fuller. Had to find him to get salt and pepper. Never checked in during our meal to see if we needed anything. Food was fantastic, Brisket. 1/2 chicken, burnt ends, Slaw, corn bread and mac and cheese. Told them it was a birthday lunch when we made reservation, blew that off. In conclusion, fantastic food, mediocre service. I will not be in a hurry to return.

    Food was very delicious. The axe throwing was quite loud and took a bit to acclimate the noise, but wasn’t an issue, we could still hear one and other just fine.

    It was great that we had a reservation, the hostess and server were great. The biggest downside was that we were so many dirty tables around us that it felt like we were eating in a dumpster. It was honestly disgusting. No one was cleaning anything and the one guy who was, was just moving dirty dishes from one table to the next never really clearing anything. There were bus tubs on two different tables and they stayed there for our entire visit which in my opinion was way too long. Having worked in Restaurants for nearly 17years I was appalled at the state of the floor. Gotta work on the overall cleanliness the bathrooms had no toilet paper or paper towels. Service and food was great but being surrounded by filth really killed it. I took a video but I can only add photos to this

    This was terrible, we had reservation, but there was no table for us. I asked, why make a reservation if you don't have a table? Also, I had a text stating our table was ready at 5:10 and we arrived at 5:25, & there's no table???????????? She sat us at a high top table in the bar area, my husband and our friend are disabled and this was so uncomfortable. I told her this would not work, so she said she's try to find us a table. Then it was my husband's b-day and I was told they would recognize him, but they did not. This was worse bday celebration ever. I will never, ever return to this restaurant.

    My party hadn’t arrived and the hostess seated me. The waitress was outstanding and arrived promptly to see if I needed anything. One my party arrived she was courteous and waited for us to finish our conversation and came to take our orders. It’s was our first time so we asked for recommendations. She was basically wonderful in explaining the menu items! Great Experience and Great food!

    We very much wanted to like this place but it was incredibly loud - and the axe throwing is SO loud throughout your meal. The only thing separating you from the axe throwing area is a chain link fence?! Kinda crazy that someone thinks this is a great idea? I’m pretty sure most people aren’t into the axe throwing, and just a few are….leaving me to think this is a novelty that may kill the business. All of my meat was over cooked and the beans were super saucy and sweet - not my style. Banana pudding, my all time fav dessert, was sickly sweet. At least our server was pleasant - grateful for that!

    Food was good but service was poor. We made a reservation, but the host sat 5 groups in the same area all at once and overwhelmed the server. Not his fault, but we waited 30 minutes just to be acknowledged and get water. There was also a confusion about whose section we were seated in. No server took responsibility for our table. Beer took another 15 minutes to arrive after ordering. Whole experience was disappointing.

    I booked a group dinner for my boyfriend's and everyone loved their food! Our waitress was absolutely fantastic in managing our size, was patient with our many questions and put each couple on separate checks which was so helpful. I removed a star as the restaurant overall was very messy. The tables were sticky (as I had to ask someone to wipe it down after we were seated), food from previous customers were on the floor and the bathrooms were disgusting (no toilet paper, seat liners, messy floors, garbage's not emptied, etc.). We also came for axe throwing and had a total blast! The guy who works this station was fantastic as well and very accommodating for our group size! The reservation I made for dinner was actually meant for axe throwing, so the website was a little tricky to navigate. But overall, we had a fantastic time, great food & drinks and a fun activity to enjoy after eating.

    Food generally was good, my wife’s meal was not hot; my brisket was really fatty. It was very loud. My soda came out after my wife’s hurricane. And I never got a refill. Our waiter disappeared. I was shocked to have to pay $3.99 for a soda. It was only my second time at this restaurant and will probably not go back.
