Definitely worthy of going out of your way for this BBQ place, delicious! Their brisket, chicken, pulled pork, and ribs are excellent. The chicken especially is moist and extremely flavorful. They have a really good variety of BBQ sauces, I particularly enjoyed the St Louis, Strawberry, and House BBQ. Other flavors like the Caribbean Jerk were really good but very specific to some peoples tastes. Do not miss out on the warm potato salad, corn bake, and the beans. I will dream of that potato salad and beans until I have it again, awesome stuff. The upstairs has a very cool vibe as well, reclaimed wood so make sure to check it out. It would be perfect for a baby or bridal shower, if I lived closer I would definitely check it out It also has a nice outside patio area, 2 different levels, which would be nice on a summer day.

Excellent restaurant. We went there on Mother's day buffet ( a busy day) Not only did they have a huge buffet of smoked meats ( prime rib, turkey, pulled pork, ribs) the also had a gorgeous spread of sides- real honest to goodness homeade foods. The hot foods were hot and the cold foods cold. The restaurant is gorgeous.... clean and unique. The wait staff ( we had Chelsea) was attentive, kind and helpful ( like I said it was busy- but she didn't make it feel that way- she made sure we were comfortable) The owner came over to our table and we chatted and was impressed with his answers to our questions. The blackberry iced tea was simply amazing. The coffee was great. The inside of the building is stunning. Definitely a restaurant that we will frequent often.

The food is OUTSTANDING! HUGE chicken wings (the whole wing) brisket that you can cut with a fork, all with a Smokey flavor that does not overpower the juicy meat. Be sure to ask for extra napkins, you will need them with the wings. Of you are in Michigan's UP, it is worth the drive to Crystal Falls and The Curious Pig!!
