    This Kentucky Girl loved the Wilbur Sundae!! The perfect mix of great vanilla ice cream, bourbon caramel, salty, smokey bacon and cinnamon pork rinds. All topped with a bourbon soaked cherry. Tuners

    One of the newest stops on the Urban Bourbon Trail, be sure and grab your passport from the server and ask for one of their specialty bourbon flights.

    If you have a time limit, wouldn't suggest it for lunch. Took us over an hour to get our food once we seated pretty quickly though, so kudos for that!

    Great place to dine alone. Sit at the bar, eat yourself silly, chat with the friendly bartenders or the other folks near you and have a great time.

    A bit disappointed with the food after hearing all the amazing reviews. Wasn't impressed with my pork taco, not a lot of flavor and over priced. But great fast service and beautiful restaurant.

    Way too loud. Rude service. So disappointing.

    Best BBQ in town. Don't sweat the guy with the squirrelly hat taking names up front. He's been a douche to me or my friends on a number of occasions. Putting up with his attitude is worth the food.

    Order the grilled chicken sandwich. Tastes great and not to heavy.

    Oysters were outstanding. Lots of varieties to chose from. Smoked wings are amazing. And I can't recommend the Lima beans enuf! Yes!! Lima beans.

    Had the 20oz house beer, loaded baked potato, and the bread pudding. Needless to say, I AM STUFFED AND HAPPY. p.s. the bartenders here - so sweet, so hot.

    It's all about the chicken here. Seriously! The other BBQ stuff is OK.

    In NYC, this place would thrive in the meat packing district. Need a reservation for a table, but if you can find a spot at the bar, do it!

    If you want a table it's best to make a reservation. Food was fantastic.

    The food here really isn't all that good. I'm not a fan of the new chips, the BBQ sauce, or the grits.

    Beef brisket tacos excellent choice!

    Food was inexpensive for downtown, but forgettable.

    Bbq sandwich was mediocre at best. Meat was really dry and lacking flavor. Disappointed after waiting 1hour, but at least they can pour a good cocktail.

    This is a great place to try some "new" bourbon.
