    The BBQ sampler is a ton of great food. You can share it, or you can get drunk on interesting craft cocktails and drunk eat it alone.

    The overloaded chickwich comes packed with shreds of tender, truly smoky BBQ chicken, crispy onions, coleslaw, and an oozing fried egg, all on a pillowy, eggy bun. Read more

    Loved the Tots-N-Shots cool twist on tots. Any of the Mac-N-Cheeses! I had a Duck Reuben, but it's not on the menu anymore. Big portions, so splitting is a good way to try stuff out.

    Very expensive for BBQ. Food is mediocre and the portions are small. Service though is very friendly, but... That still doesn't make up for the high priced small portioned food.

    Be prepared to beg for service. The guy was clueless and seemed bothered that we asked for assistance or drinks. Finally after 15 min waitress appeared and the initial dude avoided us at the plague.

    It's tempting to overlook a place like Beaver's as it settles into a comfortable middle age, but that would mean missing out a place that still has a talented bar staff making creative cocktails.
