So what's the problem? Getting the service kinks out and getting the grill going.

We visited on a lazy Saturday afternoon around 5 pm, hoping it wouldn't be mobbed. It wasn't.
Strangely, there's no written menu or promotion of the BBQ specials. The drinks include Pimm's cup ($12), rose ($10), and beer ($5), and rotating meats from the grill. Specials of the day were charcoal grilled burgers ($7) and hot dogs ($4). You can also order from the regular menu, which we were offered. So we opted for some rose, a cheeseburger, and from the regular menu, the mini short rib sandwiches ($12).

Otherwise, I'm optimistic they'll find a groove, and the chef will be owning the grill next time.
For a neighborhood summer outing this holiday weekend, the setting is unbeatable.
