We absolutely loved the sausage appetizer, it was delicious. The barbecue itself was acceptable but not great. Banana pudding is a must-have! Service was very good. Overall would recommend.

MGriffin_001, Thank you for stopping by and letting us know about your experience. The ribs are cooked/grilled over an open pit for about 1 hour, so you're correct about them not falling off the bone. We are very happy to see that the server was...More

It's very simple......there is not better barbecue in Montgomery. We have visited other cities within 500 miles of home and often eat at barbecue restaurant. When we do, we always seem to compare the quality to Dreamland. The conclusion is always the same....good, but not...More

This was a great find on the way home to Georgia from New Orleans. A very interesting building (they also brew their own beer). They make their own rub and sauce that we all bought. Our waitress was so sweet. She told us all about...More

After spending a day visiting the civil rights memorial we looked for someplace to eat and made the right choice in coming here. The atmosphere was great, staff were friendly, the food was good, the beer was just what I wanted.

We went to Dreamland for lunch yesterday. The atmosphere was great and the service was very attentive. The portions are gigantic, so make sure you don't overorder. The fired okra is divine.

I don't think they have beef. They do have chicken and turkey options.
