We had 14 for dinner. It was a perfect setup and a great menu. The ribs looked amazing, my salad with pulled chicken on top was fantastic, and the nachos were super! Our waitress was exceptional for our large group, recommend!

Excellent food and wonderful gluten-free options. We loved the menu and the views. Excellent bbq, and they even had exceptional GF fries! Yummy sides complimented our delicious entrees. Service was friendly but forget sauces, etc. Very friendly though. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch!!

This was a nice change. Loved the Brunswick Stew. The gluten free beer was delicious! We had brisket, ribs and the wedge salad. Service was really good! The ambiance was fun and relaxed.

Ridiculously expensive for a Bar-B-Q restaurant. $25 for a hamburger, $21 for a serving of pork without a bun, $9 for a draft beer. NYC prices but this is South Carolina. Will not be returning to Cherrywood.
