Yummy!

I went here with a group of four from work. Service was quick & the food was flavorful. There were quite a few beers on tap & they had a few wine selections. We each got a different side & those were tasty as well!

In a town that has maybe 20 craft beer bars, Beachwood BBQ stands out. They make their own excellent beers and stock several dozen rotating drafts as well from a wide variety of brewers. The barbecue is good too. My companion and I shared a half rack of ribs, dry-rubbed--plenty of food for both of us. The seasoning was good,... More

The original Beachwood BBQ in Seal is one of my favorite places. Good food, pleasant and knowledgeable staff, and a most excellent beer selection. Be warned, the location is quite small and the wait can be lengthy. Still, it's worth it!

Fantastic beer selection and wonderful food in a great atmosphere. I loved this place when I lived close by, now it is a "Must Visit" when ever I am in town.

My wife and I have been to the Beachwood BBQ in Long Beach. It was good and the ale was cold. We wanted to try something different so we decided to try the Beachwood in Seal Beach. We had the pulled pork. It was okay. The service was fine. The restraunt is kind of small and is an older building.... More

I don't understand why this place gets such high ratings. We had fair service and the regular BBQ sauce was way too spicy for my husband.

I asked one of the local merchants for a recommendation in the area, and of the places mentioned this was the only one I hadn’t been yet. Located right on Main Street, no matter where you park it’s in easy walking distance. The building is small, but about average for the establishments in the area. To the left of the... More

I love asking what are the specials. When you go somewhere new and the specials taste this good (Chicken-fried pork) with the pretzel bun, and a white sauce that will make you slap yo' mamma. Their beer is so good. It compliments the menu perfectly. Go there for a beer and some sweet potato fries you will not regret it.... More

I would probably have not walked into this restaurant on my own. It's small, unassuming, and blends in with the other shops on the street. The restaurant itself is clean and family friendly. They boast a large variety of beers ranging from $5 to $10 that are displayed on the wall. Although it wasn't on the menu, we heard another... More
