Hey there, barbecue fans, the wait is almost over.

Scott Hall says that the long-awaited Bone-In Barbecue restaurant in the Ensor Building at Columbia's BullStreet development should open by mid-April.

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?
