Lookout Hill Smokehouse Any Good?

Would like to have father's Day dinner there with a group, but some are food elitists. Me? I'm easily pleased with lots of beer!

      Do we know the pedigree of this place? Is it being run by the previous owners? Bisquit was a disgrace to bbq food so I'm understandably wary.

        Same owner, same equipment, but a new chef: Joe Breaton, who ran a smokehouse out on LI (the much reviled Biscuit on Flatbush and Biscuit BBQ had the same chef, Josh Cohen). One can only hope...

          just had lunch there. chicken wings(in bbq sauce and i believe butter...???) and 1/4 pounds of brisket(lean) and pork belly. all were good and the whiskey list is pretty extensive. captain lawrence liquid gold and crop circle ale on tap too. i think they need a tv to watch games tho, it's not like it's fine dining.

              Went there for brunch on Saturday. They didn't have the full menu at lunch so we settled on a pulled pork and a pulled chicken sandwich with a side of mac-n-cheese. The pork was really good and the slaw on top was a nice addition...it wasn't amazing and didn't have that pink tip you get with long, slow smoking but it was good. The pulled chix sandwich was better with a great jalapeno relish on top. The mac was pretty damn good with a spiky garlic crunch from the crusted breadcrumbs. It was a pleasurable lunch and makes me want to go back at dinner to see what they don't have at lunch (like the corn pudding and the ribs).

                Thanks for the input. I think we'll give it a shot.

                  hey. longtime troller here. stopped by for dinner the other night. shared the pastrami crusted pork wings and the pork belly BLT. neither of us are BBQ experts but we both thought that the food was great. i actually can't stop thinking about the BLT- it was kinda awesome. didn't have any sides or anything, so can't speak to that or the meat on the board, but we were able to sit outside and service was pleasant and overall, i recommend...
