Excellent service. The waiters were genuinely friendly and helpful. We had the sharing platter and although we couldn't quite finish it all, it was delicious! I particularly liked the brisket but my partner enjoyed the buttermilk chicken.

Really cool place, great location, food was amazing (Brisket was perfect). Had a great conversation with the chef about the low and slow cooking, dry ageing, Parilla BBQ, even got to see the Octopit out the back. Highly recommend it to anyone.

I can’t believe the value and quality of food at this place. We came for a girls catch up last night and ended u being the last to leave. The atmosphere and service is fantastic and the food is not only generous but cooked to perfection. Please don’t get me started on the cocktails... I will be back!

The waiter was patient and understanding. As we were sharing food, he considered the number of people and gave suggestions on the portions we should go for. He took the initiative to warn us the coleslaw would be spicy for our little children. I applauded for the good service!

The crackling pork entree was dissapointing. We only had one piece that was crunchy and the rest are hard to chew. However, we enjoyed the sharing platter. It was yummy and nice atmosphere
