Everything is homemade! The BarBQ is excellent, the BarBQ sauces are outstanding. We loved the Fried Pickles! The beer selection changes frequently and they always have an interesting selection. After you have spent several hours on the beach, walk a short distance down Main Street to this great restaurant.

Beachwood is the type of place that even has a wait for lunch, so one must plan accordingly. Of course, the food merits the small wait that you will encounter. I had a combination of pulled pork and sausage with vanilla pecan yams, asparagus and cornbread. The restaurant has a casual feel despite its quality of food and beer. A... More

We drive out to Seal beach just for this place. great microbrews! always! good bbq, tasty sauces. this place is small, so if you're going at night expect a wait. not a great place for small kids because of its size. fried pickles are a must! you won't regret it.

I've been a huge supporter of this restaurant ever since it opened. The food is absolutely amazing, the beers are great, and the staff is awesome. I highly recommend either location, but the Seal Beach restaurant is where it all began.

Portobello fries are so delicious. Very good barbecue. Very good. The portions are large, and the sides are amazing. When I want barbeque and I am in the area, it's a no brainer! Beachwood all the way.
