    Got the 3 meat platter: sausage, pulled pork & 2nd cut brisket with homemade bread. Don't get the margarita grande tho- they served it in martini glasses. Food is awesome & view is wonderful!!

    Food is awesome = homemade bread, beef ribs, pork ribs, Turkey, brisket, sausage, chicken, Cole slaw, potato salad, beans, sauce to die for, homemade cobbler, and the long island ice tea. Once a year!

    Try the fall off the bone beef ribs, best coleslaw I have ever tasted, homemade hot from the oven bread (wheat and white are great with honey butter!), and the finger licking BBQ sauce!

    The tables outside are amazing, so nice to be outside and see river and fish around. For my taste food was ok. I liked sausage with baked potatoes and beens.

    Brisket & sausage were delicious! Beans & homemade bread were also really good! I subbed the cole slaw & potato salad for a baked potato, which I would do again. Overall, so good!

    Save room for dessert! The root beer float made with homemade ice cream and IBC root beer is awesome. They bring the root beer in the bottle so you can pour it on yourself!
