This place is just a cool place to hang out! There's a cute beer garden in the back. The drink selection is excellent!! The menu is very diverse with a little too much meat (hence their name). Food and service was great though.

If you are a meat-lover, and like HUGE portions, this is the place. I saw a small woman sawing away at the pork chop - a 5"x4" block of perfectly cooked pork (yes she took home a doggy bag). Wow - and the ribs looked...More

Excellent meats cooked/made in house. Great for large parties. Sausage selection is great. Not cheap and tough to get a table/bar stool but great food.

Is there a dress code?

Response from Thomas M | Reviewed this property |
No official dress code, however if you're going for dinner I wouldn't dress down too much, you'll feel out of place. It's a downtown, more "fancier" restaurant, so people naturally get a bit more dressed up.
