Our mains took an incredibly long time to arrive. And when they finally did it was all at different times, which made for awkward eating.
The chef cannot poach an egg... it was Simply a raw egg. The server was not accommodating when we sent it back, claiming that when the whites are runny like that it’s perfection. Will not eat here again.

They do not know how to run a restaurant. The server was friendly, but our meals came out 90 minutes after we ordered and were inedible. I'm sure they know a lot about BBQ and their catering business may not be as bad, but as a restaurant patron, I was so upset that we chose this restaurant to celebrate Father's Day.

They should close up shop until they have someone with experience running a restaurant floor on staff.

We heard the food was delicious, and the smoked meats did not disappoint. Even better, was the large craft beer selection and the fact that chef Jason sources as much as he can locally.

What a neighbourhood gem!

Amazing food as always. One in our group was especially pleased with the craft beer selection available on tap. We were a large group and we were all happy with food quality, taste, price, and the service.

We were a large group of people going out to eat but wanted something close by where we were staying. Everyone liked the idea of bbq, so we head out there.

It is tucked down below a bank or something of that ilk but the moment you open the door, the smell of smoke and bbq envelops you.

I was kinda worried at first because it didn’t seem that crowded. But once we had our food the worries were over.

The first few chews, I thought it was pretty good. Then suddenly this second wave of heat just came through that did not over power the first taste but rather harmonized with it.

I came from the land of bbq in the good old US of A, and this was some of the best bbq I have had.
