    The bar boasts an impressive 20 beers on tap with about 15 of those in-house brews at any given time. Plus, it's cool inside, with an aged industrial design that fits well in the neighborhood. Read more

    If you like paying $13 for one rib, this is the place for you. Make sure to get a bunch of the corn and try to ask for more of that amazing cayenne butter sauce on the side.

    even Monday night is packed here. I loved beef brisket and pork sausage. Beer is awesome as usual and desserts are delicious too!

    Beautiful interior, stupid amount of tasty beers on tap and the most tender, delicious brisket I've had served by the half pound. Impossible to go wrong here.

    This is a solid BBQ while many in this city disappoint. Try the beef ribs and the hot links. For something less conventional, try the smoked duck breast; warning: it's served cold.

    Incredible BBQ (that's expected), brilliant beer (they're a brewery) but there cocktail mixologist are brilliant (unexpected). Packed but awesome!

    You could try a new beer every time at this place and never be disappointed! Make sure you get here early enough that they're not out of the mac and cheese

    Sip whiskey at Smokestack, a new bar from the Magnolia team. Expect potent, dangerously drinkable cocktails and a whiskey list to do a Kentucky granddad proud. Read more

    The wagyu beef is the bomb. Great selection of bears, bourbon and of your into cocktails, try the Manhattan.

    Craft beer and pulled pork. There is not much more you could ask for. Add this to your dog patch brewery tour.

    Brisket, chicken & dirty rice are excellent. A hipster "Medieval Times" sans jousting, well, except for the singles!

    Best new place to drink beer and eat BBQ. stand up tables in the back cellars are the place to be.

    Wonderful beer, and flare at BBQ. The brisket is amazing. The line can be long though!

    You can't beat the BBQ by the pound, the drinks, or the selection of their own brews.

    Get there early because they run out. Big fan of the Pastrami, Brisket, and Beef Ribs

    They have some nice brews on cask and they distill their own whiskey. There is a smokehouse on the premises, but it is slightly overpriced.

    It's a brewery, but info for their cocktails and bright, airy atmosphere.

    Brisket is on point - they'll usually let you request what kind of cut you like (fat, lean etc)

    Brisket is amazing, but the ribs are forgettable. Portion isn't too generous, but flavour is great

    Don't come hungry. Food is good but you might have to pay with your firstborn child and an organ or two.
  • Elizabeth F.
    Get the beef brisket. Chopped pork as backup. Skip the overpriced cauliflower ($9 for a few florets?!)

    The sausage and pork are where it's at. The ribs were a little fatty for my liking though.

    Expensive. But the smoked duck is crazy good. The rolls are also yummy, and I don't even like bread.

    Brisket at $30/lb? REALLY? BBQ is working class food. This place costs triple what good bbq should be.
  • Corey O.
    Corey O'NealMay 24, 2014
    Here's my tip: if you don't come from a state with good bbq, then I suppose this will pass. If you do, this is just expensive 2nd rate food.

    Bar staff spends more time shifting glassware around than actually being attentive to customers. Don't be surprised if you have to wait for service.

    Thus place has gone bad. At 8 o clock they ran out of Mac and cheese. At 830 they only had brisket left. The place was not even crowded. The lady at the bbq counter was pretty rude.
