This was the restaurant we were looking forward to the most. We were so let down. My husband and I both ordered the beef brisket and the meat itself was very very good and well portioned. However the three little sauce cup sides were clearly from the garden cafe. The BBQ beans were watery and crunchy (not cooked through), the Mac and cheese was watery and from garden cafe and the "potato salad" was three pieces of American potatoes - literally three pieces. The cornbread is jalapeno cornbread and is more savory then sweet. We didn't even stay for dessert as we paid out of pocket. I honestly would not waste your time or money/specialty dining package. NCL has this Grand idea of having a country venue but has not invested into the menu. They have put more towards the venue and live music.

Decent, will give this another shot next month on Encore. Got the sampler platter. Sausage was awesome, brisket was salty, chicken had a smoked flavor but no real seasoning to it. The jalapeno cheddar corn bread was horrible.

Bar b q was superb. Ribs tender and delicious. Loved the country music. They need to move the country band to another venue. It’s uncomfortable going into a restaurant just to listen to the music with Everyone else eating.

I didn’t care for the Q. My salmon was very dry. I will admit that it may have been partly my fault. I have never had anyone ask me how I want my salmon prepared. So when they said rare, medium, etc. I was a little surprised. I said medium. I guess I should have said rare? My husband had the brisket and it was tasty, but it was a tiny portion. The sides were served in little condiment sized dishes. The coleslaw was pretty good. The night we were there the entertainment (band) seemed exhausted. The main singer was on a stool, yawning and rarely smiled. Very low energy. It was pretty dull. I heard they were more up other nights. Also, while there another couple said they had a sampler platter and it was delicious. So I would try that.

Wonderful server, John D, tried to do a good job despite cold and disappointing food with a band so loud we had to shout.

Texan sized portions barbecued to perfection! If you have just one dessert on this cruise, have a slice of their sumptuous pecan pie!

Went there twice. Although BBQ was tasty the sides were not. First visit we reserved an 8pm seating. Band already playing and so loud we couldn't carry on a conversation. We reserved at 8 because we were told band didn't start until 9. Guess they start when they feel like it. Second visit we made it a point of going earlier. We were only one of two tables so uncomfortable because of the fact we felt very exposed. Strange because we were told the Q was very popular. Obviously not on this cruise.
