Brought the family and we had a great time. The food was excellent and the service stellar. On a Saturday night, without a reservation, we only waited 15 minutes.

Had lunch for the first time and it was awesome. Our waiter, Kevin, made our visit even more enjoyable. We will definitely ask for him next time we stop in.

We had the pulled pork and the brisket sandwich with the sweet bbq sauce. Both were excellent. We had the corn bread for an appetizer and that was amazing with the pecan butter. It is a little pricey.

Do you usually allow dogs in the restaurant that aren't service Dogs? I was there yesterday 3/7/17 and this girl came in with a small dog in her purse. All the servers went Gaga over the small dog. I needed a refill of my drink and my server was over petting the dog and the went and got my tea (which she got wrong) and I know she didn't have time to wash her hands properly. Very disrespectful to the customers. Not sure if I will return to the restaurant or not at this point. Not sure if the manager was there or not but one you gave an looked like a manager but he wasn't dressed properly, shirt hanging get out not tucked in.

I don't know about animal policy, but it appears that the restaurant needs a more visible manager.
