Service extremely poor.took over an hour to get our dinner. Manager disagreed ;indicating their "pos" system showed otherwise. Once served , some plates were cold. Manager again refused to even check.

Average at best. How do you serve BBQ without coleslaw. Sat at the bar and service was poor. Have only been once might give it another try but not rushing back.

Fantastic food, fantastic service...Must Go!!! Yum!

Take Notice! If you looking for a nice dining experience w/great service and food - THIS IS NOT THE PLACE!!! Family went after day at parks and was met w/miserable server and bad service, waited for food for a hour and when it finally arrived it was wrong and cold. There was cornbread which was to be served prior to dinner and free refills but due to a non - existing server we never were able to take advantage of that at-least considering how long we waited for our dinners and the table was filthy dirty with sticky remnant of previous customers along with menus. The biggest problem w/this place is the owner - Mr. Pagnotta! He is not open to anytime of discussion when it comes to addressing matters as just described and not once offered an apology. He made excuses and stood behind the errors even when presented w/proof. Please save your time and money and share this experience w/your friends and family to prevent yourselves as well as them from having the same experience as my family unfortunately encountered!

What a time we live in. The hospitality business has many moving parts and a sliding scale of whats good or bad. If a customer is unhappy and feels there needs are not met,Trip Advisor among other outlets is there chance to unload and vent there dissatisfaction. I do remember this reviewer and his complaints. As we debated his assertion of what happened and our businesses response to his concerns we didn't see eye to eye. His time timeline was incorrect, his critique of the food was false, and his demeanor was argumentative. Oh and I think he told me his family is in the restaurant business, etc.,etc! So in the end the customer is always right and that customer can vent and feel empowered to send that message to all the social media web sights. Although I feel awful that his families experience was a negative one I personally was cooking his meals and for a large group of people the focus of their bad experience was they waited to long as well as literally about a hamburger that had the wrong bun!! I tried to show them the tickets that had the time line that was different then there story but it didn't matter. The customer is right and the business is wrong. Well we have been in business 24 years and we will continue to strive for perfection in all areas of our operation. Its not 100%, but we care and we will change or omit when we are at fault. This families experience is wrong and not factual in their details.
