The food was ample and delicious, and staff cheerfully friendly. The view and outdoor ambience were bonuses. We will be back.

Stayed overnight in Brattleboro. This place had a long line and tons of cars in their parking lot - popular place - so I called to order pick up. I usually do not go to BBQ places. I'm not sure why. Ordered burnt end dinner....More

Family of 3 went in July. We all ordered the pulled pork sandwich and each of us ordered one side each and shared it Roasted potatoes, Mac & Cheese, and rice with beans. Everything was EXCELLENT!!!!

This roadside eatery is great. Wonderful pulled pork, brisket and pork ribs. Flavorful and humongous portions. Nice sauce. Friendly people. Only complaint is the very flimsy plastic silverware.

This is a great little spot with both indoor and outdoor seating and a wide menu. They even have some veggie options - but get the ribs or brisket!

The food was good, the prices were decent, and the view was very pretty! The mac and cheese and grilled catfish were delicious. The kids really liked the ribs. It wasn't the best bbq we have eaten but I would definitely go back.

Maybe one shouldn't expect great or even particularly good BBQ in Vermont. This place makes a good effort and is pleasant and welcoming in many ways, but the brisket, ribs and side dishes are just okay. If you're a real BBQ fan, you'll be disappointed.

We visit a couple of times every summer and it is always delicious. We've had the pulled pork, ribs, potato salad, coleslaw, baked beans and corn bread. The service is quick and the view is amazing! Thank you!
