Be prepared for some great eats and wholly delicious craft beers. The bartender absolutely knows his offerings and suggests perfect matchings. Try the Albacore or Brisket burger...you won't be disappointed...oh yeah...add sweet potato fries and fuggetaboutit.

Beachwood BBQ is my favorite place to eat in Seal Beach. The Brisket and Sweet potatoe fries are heavenly. The have a very unique menu, a wall of many tapped micro beers to choose from (even samples if you ask) and the atmosphere is simple but welcoming. Don't forget to try the different flavors of sauces - for complete satisfaction.... More

VERY good BBQ place but it's packed after 6, so get there early and enjoy the Happy Hour too. Fried pickles, duck tater tots with truffle oil and the nachos are our favs.

Great little place in Seal Beach. Best BBQ I had ever had and I am from Kentucky! The cornbread is sooo good and the coleslaw was tasty as well. My fiance got one of the coffee flavored beers and we both agreed that it was the best beer we had ever tasted!

With a BBQ resume that includes living/visiting Texas, N Carolina, Kansas City, Upstate NY, Florida, and others, I was a bit leery of Southern California as a source for outstanding BBQ. I ended up impressed, full, amazed, and very satisfied. We arrived at the small storefront restaurant to a small wait (25 min estimate) which was accurate. Up front, notice... More

I had the BBQ Beef spare rib and it was really overcooked and dry. I also tried my wife's smoked ham and neither of us really liked it much - it as also dry and overcooked. The sauces were really good and so were all of the sides we ordered: Baked Beans, Yams, creamed spinach and Cornbread.

The shrimp and grits are creamy and tasty but the blue cheese grits were fabulous!! They were sides, but I could have consumed two of them. I is true that the surprisingly... More

What more do you need than a great selection of craft beers and some great BBQ. I like the variety of sauces they have for the BBQ too. They also have a number of inventive takes on classic Southern roadhouse faves. Small place, cramp place. You will have a wait at busy times.

Seal Beach is the hidden gem of Orange County and Beachwood is one of my favorite restaurants when visiting. Tasty food, good service and a reasonable price.

Barbecued food that doesn't need the sauce, though an assortment of sauces are available on the table. Wait staff were very welcoming. Good time and great food.
