Great service, atmosphere and reasonably priced! The ONLY reason it does not get 5 stars is because they don't take reservations and after 5pm there is always a wait. ( weekends can be 2-21/2 hours). The food is phenomenal.

The food is almost always great here... the two reasons I'm giving itt 4 instead of 5 are the extremely long wait times... no reservations, and the length of time it takes to get your food. The atmosphere is fun, food is different and really good, wait staff is generally pretty good. Love the daily pizza special, the mac n... More

From the minute you step in the door, you know it's different from other restaurants. There is brown paper on the tables and wood slices on the walls. It doesn't feel rushed... it just feels homey. The food... oh the food! My daughter ordered naked wings and shop tots. I had naked wings and onion rings. The food came out... More

My entire family loves this Union Joint...our second favorite after Vinsetta Garage. Plenty of gluten free items, as well! Not only the BBQ is great here, but lots of other menu items as well, like pizza and the sweet potato burrito is my favorite! Lots of good side dishes...the smashed sweet potatoes with the maple syrup and jalapeños is awesome!... More

This is a very nice place. Terrific atmosphere, moderate wait. Great service, great food, but poor parking (typical Clarkston issue).

Nothing worst than taking your friend for a birthday celebration and being disappointed by the restaurant. First they don't take reservations, even for a party of 10. Then when I arrived early to ensure we got a table they said I would have to wait until half the party has arrived before they work seat us. When over half arrived... More

Food was incredible! The waitress was amazing, great personality. We tried the brisket, pulled pork & back ribs - we thoroughly enjoyed it all! Tots were suggested by waitress & were a new item on the menu - SO GOOD! Will definitely return!

Very popular BBQ place with some of unusual main dishes and sides. Get there by 5:30 pm or you will wait. Large bar upstairs for waiting for table. Must try - the Shop burrito with pulled pork and sweet potato mash - it is amazing!!
