Great Beachside BBQ

Best BBQ in the area. It has been around for over 20 years. Great selections of meats...pulled pork, ribs, beef, and chicken. We love the pulled pork and chicken. They have daily specials. Great service, great food at a great price!

Whenever we travel, we always try out new BBQ places but we can't seem to find ANYTHING that compares to Charlie and Jake's Beachside. The fact that they actually smoke their BBQ is step 1. Step 2 is delicious sides (umm cinnamon and sugar sweet potato chips?! YES PLEASE)...and step 3 is impeccable service. Can't recommend this place enough. It's... More

I travel the country and have had all types of BBQ. Charlie and Jake's is just ok. Nothing bad but just nothing special. I've been here several times when I need something to satisfy my BBQ itch and it does the trick. Personally I think it doesn't have much flavor until you cover it in their different BBQ sauces.

I love the BBQ pulled chicken on garlic toast and sweet potato chips, they are delicious and never greasy. But don't go here on Sunday night (8:15pm) because they won't take your order.... There were only three other tables of patrons and the server walked right by us a dozen times and never made eye contact. At first I though... More

We braved a thunderstorm last night because the husband wanted ribs, and I'm glad we went. If you want good BBQ near the beach, I definitely recommend Charlie & Jake's. It's reasonably priced and really good food. I ordered the pulled chicken sandwich on garlic toast with okra and mac & cheese. The sandwich was pretty great: delicious smoked, tender... More

Its hard to get decent barbecue in Maine. We come here every time we visit florida. I'd definitely recommend the pulled pork, fried pickles and hush puppies

The tables all had sauce bottles and plenty of napkins. Don't forget to try the smoked prime rib roast dinner which costs $5 plus $1 per ounce (8 oz costs $13) - it's unique and really good. Spending a few weeks here to get away from the snow back home, we went back a second time and it was great... More

This is a small BBQ restaurant next door to Texas Roadhouse. We had dinner there with friends and all the food was delicious. I ordered the shrimp and it was great. Went there again for lunch and had the salad. You can get a plain salad, which was very fresh, or you can add meat to it. My husband added... More
