One of my favorites

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.

If you like finger licking good BBQ and the best beer on tap = Beachwood is for you. What more can I say than Beachwood has the best of the best BBQ everything. The meats are cooked to perfection and then you get to decide what BBQ sauce to put on everything. At the table there is a rack of... More

I've been here several times and it can be hit or miss unfortunately. The last brisket order I had from here was on the dry side. Not the most spectacular bbq I've been to, but for the locals, it's not bad. The service is always good though.

We came to Beachwood on a recommendation from a local and were not disappointed. They have a great selection of craft beers, friendly service and fantastic food. The lamb burger was out of this world!

This was an excellent lunch stop for us -- We smelt the BBQ from a few restaurants down, and had to try this out. The beer selection was great and the menu was simple and to the point. We both loved our food, and I loved experimenting with the various sauces that they have. Mmm...

This was my second time to Beachwood BBQ. First time we stumbled on it by accident about 5 years ago. This time it came on recommendation from Staff at Ayers Hotel. First, I love any place outside of the Deep South that makes. Good fried green tomato. Second, my friend ordered the smoked chicken and after one taste I was... More

The food is always very good and the beer selection is excellent. They have the best burger in Seal Beach and their pulled pork is my favorite. Very casual and the staff is always very helpful.

First you can smell the 'smoke' from the BBQ place while walking Main Street. That was what brought us there to eat. They actually have a 'food' Happy Hour. I had a BBQ Beef Sandwich and my friend has the Steak 1/2 Salad. The sandwich was excellent and the spicy BBQ sauce was very good. It came with fries. Good... More
