The food is great here, and the dishes are authentic southern. Think you can't get good BBQ in Maine? Think again! Love the ribs and the pulled pork. (just wish they served Brunswick stew. . .but then they are Tennessee folks, not Georgia!)

Had a wonderful lunch with my wife. I had the sampler and it was excellent. Great flavor, good sauces, and great simple menu. You will not be disappointed.

Great food and great service. Limited parking was the only downfall. Good portions, OK prices. We will revisit

I had the half chicken with slaw, beans and cornbread. Chicken had great flavor and was moist. Cornbread was good, slaw good, beans had a little spice but not too much and some spicy sausage, it was good. Wife had pulled pork sandwich, was good.

The food is very good, i particularly liked the pulled pork. The rib sauce could be a bit more flavourful but then again they give you sauce to add, on their own the ribs are a bit plain.

Food is not always consistent but generally good especially for Downeast Maine. We have purchased food as take out and have eaten in the restaurant. Generous servings and well packed for take out travel. The decor is rustic but fun in the the Ellsworth resturant....More

The music is to loud and the food options are limited and not as good of quality for the prices. Their staff needs training to customer needs. This place has potential if some effort went into it, not just more alcohol at the bar!

The food was always good here but the service was so spotty that I just gave up trying. Even takeout was difficult last time due to 'server
