Sophie's Take

Food Rating: 7

Pork should was really good. The hot sausage was underwhelming, and the wings were slightly better than average. The coleslaw and pickle sides were ok but very overpriced.

 

Service Rating: 8

Dude came and cleared the table very promptly, that was about it.

 

Fun Factor: 8

It was very, very hot and humid. It would have been more fun if it was cooler and we had been there with a big group earlier in the night. Views were cool, nice swamp-side dining.

Chris' Take

Food Rating: 7

The pork shoulder was great! We also got wings and a hot sausage which weren’t bad, but nothing special.

 

Service Rating: 8

You order and pick up food at a counter so there isn’t really table service. The counterperson was friendly and the food was ready fast.

 

Fun Factor: 7

It was really, really hot so that was a bit of a damper on the fun factor. But being outside and canal-side was really cool. Would definitely be a really fun place to hang out on a cooler night.
