We are locals and we gave this restaurants two tries. The barbecue sauce is the runny, vinegar kind, not the thick sauce and the meat was very dry. I love good barbecue, but this is not the place to get it. We went with the neighbors and none of us has gone again.

We waited 45 longer than what we were told and if it hadn't been for the great reviews on trip advisor we would not had waited. And now having eaten there, we wouldn't have waited: service was slow, barbecue brisket sandwiches lacked great taste and the Beechwood beer (red ale) they brew smelled and tasted like peaches. Smoked asparagus was... More

We came here on Mother's Day for lunch. Both my husband and I ordered the brisket sandwich with a side of smoked asparagus. Both of us agreed that it was super delicious! We ordered our three and four-year-old a kids meal to split. They had just the brisket with a side of smoked asparagus and it came with cornbread. The... More

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
