Hey there, barbecue fans, the wait is almost over.
We caught up to Hall as he was accepting delivery on some outdoor patio chairs, and he was kind enough to give a sneak peek inside the restaurant.
Hall's father was putting finishing touches on the long wooden bar that he built, and workers were doing touch-ups to paint. Bone-In's new general manager Howard Jarrett, who has worked at Terra, Palmetto Club, Motor Supply Co. Bistro and AG Floyd's steakhouse, was fielding phone calls.

The basic overview: the restaurant is just steps away from the Fireflies ticket window.There's an indoor/outdoor dining area (a wall of glass garage doors will open up the restaurant in warm weather), a cozy, private dining area — for gatherings up to 30 to 40 people, with furnishings from the former Gilligan's — and a VIP booth in the back.
This brick-and-mortar version of Hall's popular food truck will have an expanded menu, a full bar program that focuses on Prohibition era cocktails and craft beer – possibly a collaboration with Cottontown Brew Labs – and wine by the glass.
Hall says he's excited about the opening and folks should expect some surprises — frozen drinks, anyone?
