Barbecue Joint Opens
A new barbecue joint has opened in Clark Hill, SC, north of Augusta.
Patriots’ Smokehouse, a new restaurant specializing in barbecue, brisket, ribs, chicken and hash, opened on Feb. 15 at 2006 1/2 Martintown Rd. The eatery is located near convenience store Sportsman’s Corner.
“My husband was actually a truck driver,” said the smokehouse’s co-owner Stephanie Crowder. “After 15 years of that, we just decided to try something different.”
Crowder, who owns the restaurant with her husband Ron Crowder and friend Adam Fay, said the log cabin-style building has been restaurants in the past and is surrounded by a growing amount of development.
“It’s building up out there really quick,” Crowder said.
Crowder said the Patriots’ Smokehouse also caters and continuously keeps the menu fresh with new additions to the restaurant’s core items.
Patriots’ Smokehouse is open Thursday through Sunday, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
