Order up counter facing the dining room. Clean. Wait staff a little slow.Cream of crab soup is very good. I am a SC BBQ snob and very critical on pork offerings. This is Yankee Q. Pork sandwich was served on a stale potato roll. No smoke taste or smoke ring on the Q. To much fat left in the pulled... More

Of course the pulled pork is great. But, ask for the sauce "on the side" so that the pork tastes more like Carolina BBQ. The combo with chicken, pork & ribs is great. Sides are excellent. Warm friendly wait staff.

Decorations were nice, but that is about it. Bathroom was in shambles.(Missing a stand up john that was on the wall. hand dryer didn't work) Ordered the pulled pork and tried it without the sauce first and it tasted like bad Turkey. Sauce overpowered the meat. And small portions for meal and drinks. The fireplace was nice on a cold... More

Have been going to this restaurant for years and it continues to be excellent! Just had them cater a Birthday event at the Dover AFB Museum and it was outstanding! Dynamite food, service, support, and recommendations -- All comments way above average! Highly recommend them for any catering event! Excellent value!

We ate there on the 22nd, my first time. Half onion loaf was huge. The sauce served with it was good, if you like your barbecue sauce on the vinegary side (or at least that is how it tasted to me). Had a burger with Canadian bacon, fries and a small serving of cole slaw. We were so full we... More

Stopped in for lunch and it started to get busy. Only 2 servers working the entire floor so service was slow but very courteous. Ordered the smoked brisket sandwich with broccoli salad. The menu said smoked brisket piled high but not even close. The brisket was a little tough and somewhat dry. The roll was ok and could have been... More

Overall this is a good barbeque restaurant with exceptional (in our case) service and very good food and very reasonable prices. A good place to bring the whole family.

Having owned a BBQ restaurant in NJ I am partial of course to my own food however, I must admit the pulled pig sandwich and their sauce is worth the visit. On several visits in the past I had recommended they add sweet potato fries to their menu. Well to our surprise sweet potato fries are now on the menu.... More

In fact, it didn't even leave the ground. Out of town travellers, we bought take-out to picnic with on the shores of Delaware Bay. We didn't have a lot of time, and preferred to support a local business rather than succomb to the more expedient fast food options. A good decision, but wasted on this restaurant experience unfortunately. We ordered... More
