Place is in the middle of nowhere, but it was HOPPING! We should've got reservations, but the wait was not awful and it gave us...
a chance to look at the lovely back patio and look pond. Got a Summer Mule as a drink and it was amazing. Absolut peach,strawberry puree, lime, and ginger beer. We were told this place had outstanding tri-tip, but learned upon arriving that theydidn't do that. Once again, that's on us for not checking ahead of time. The table had fresh veggies and pickles on it when wewere seated, plus a bowl of sour cream, a bowl of butter, a jar of salsa, and a basket of crackers. The first course was shrimpcocktail, and they piled in a generous helping of popcorn-size shrimp in another bowl with cocktail sauce. Not very presentable,but delicious nonetheless! The salad was edible, but nothing mind-blowing. Medium rare t-bone? Perfection!
Medium well topsirloin? Despite my opinion being that medium well is overdone, it was 10/10. Garlic bread? Oooooh yeah, baby! Toasted on oneside and soft on the other, it had everyone clamoring for more. But the ribs... oof. If I were rating on flavor alone, they getanother 10/10. Unfortunately they were dry as Death Valley and tougher than shoe leather. I still ate half of them because theywere a great spoon substitute for the BBQ sauce, but world's best barbecue? Sorry guys, your steaks are world class, but yourbarbecue needs to go back to the drawing board.
