Great spot. Food is delicious and friendly as well as helpful staff reconditions were excellent. Location was the only thing I found annoying as we kept getting disturbed by patrons of the surrounding neighbourhood.

After being seated for our reservation and ordering drinks, our server informed us that they were sold out of two of the four main dishes they offered which typically happens around 8pm every day. He also mentioned the menu had recently been changed but no updates had been made to their online menus. I was very unimpressed with the available options - I didn't find they were worth the price tag. As a popular restaurant, they should ensure that they have enough food to complete a Saturday night service - we had a reservation for 8pm on a Saturday and they were not prepared. I would not recommend this spot nor would I want to return.

was not impressed at all, checked it out online before we went and the menu looked good. When we got there many of the items shown online were not on there menu. As far as BBQ goes they only had ribs available. No brisket or pulled pork (sandwiches only) - ribs were tough and had no flavor. Rib ends ran out (we went about a hour after they opened)

Baked beans were runny and didn’t have any meat in them like you’d come to expect with pit beans. Fried chicken was grossly under seasoned.

Online they advertise half racks of ribs - but when we got there they only give 4 bones. Pretty disappointing to go somewhere expecting A BBQ joint and not having any decent options. Poorly executed.

staff all works together to ensure all clientele are happy.
food was amazing, although the sauce on the brisket sandwich was unseemly.
loved the loud rock music and colourful, diverse crowd.
daily drink specials.
book ahead, there's about 40 seats here.

Food was amazing! Service needs work, no server for a while in the beginning.... didn't give us menus, also had to ask for cutlery.
Server had to double check if there was enough chicken.

Vibe is great, ambiance and food as well. Servers/customer service needs major improvement.

My husband and I have been meaning to check this place out for some time. We were seated in the patio which was really nice. The heaters were on which took the chill out of the air. We ordered a small selection of wings, ribs, and sides, all of which were delicious. We will definitely be back! And our waiter was awesome.

Pleasant first experience and very good service. The space is cramped and I didn't enjoy the tables being so close together. Unfortunately some of the menu items ran out and we were unavailable to order. There should be better inventory for a Saturday night.

Food was super tasty. Fun and casual atmosphere. Loved the picnic tables outside. Great vibe. Our waiter was super friendly and extremely helpful and honest. Great place with fabulous energy for a date, with family or a group. One hint, go early before they sell out of items on the menu. They had just sold out of the fried chicken 😪, we'll be going back!!!

Had a reservation on the patio for a birthday. We ordered a few meat platters, a side and a bunch of cocktails. We also ordered extra ribs and wings. The smoked wings are the best smoked wings I've ever had. I found the portions generous, the meat was delicious, the sides were cold/fresh and the service was incredible. Everyone from the host to our server (long beard) to the person who settled our bill was friendly, informative and energetic. I would totally make the trek to the west end to eat here again. No complaints.

Loved the service and the outdoor harvest-table seating. Good selection of beer. The rubs on the meats and the gravy with the fried chicken were awesome. The problem was with the meats themselves - very dry. It seemed like a situation where the chap in charge of the rubs , sauces and gravy was paying attention while the bbq chap was slacking off - super dry ribs, super dry wings but great rubs on both. Could have been better but we still enjoyed the experience.
