Decent BBQ - But Not Outstanding

We really didn't find any restaurants to rave about in Navarre during our stay. I can't say that I've really had bad BBQ in my life but I have had oustanding BBQ. This is just average. I had a brisket sandwich, my son had the pulled pork and my wife had the brunswick stew. All were good and the... read more

Food was ok little pricey and served on paper plates. BBQ was average, burgers are good and wings ok. All the employees are nice and friendly.

The most important thing in a good reataraunt is the flavpr of the food. The food is excellent. I had the brisket which was outstanding. One tip i would have for anyone eating here who is worried about cost would be to order the sandwich because the dinner is basically the same with bread on the side and an extra... More

Wasn't crazy about the strong smoke smell, but food was fairly good. Good family place. We ate in the bar to avoid family groups. Beautiful location right on the beach. Went back for drinks and snacks several times during our stay in Navarre. Not great Bushwacker drink. All in all its a ok place to hang out.

We ate here for lunch twice while we were in Navarre. The men in our party thought this was the best place we ate while we at the beach. They have very good baked beans and the pulled pork sandwich I had was huge and delicious. My husband had the rib plate and since he shared a rib with me,... More

Mediocre food at an expensive price, our bill was over $100 for just 5 people. Not worth the stop. 4 out of 5 in our party all were sick following the meal.

We ate here about 7:30pm on a Sunday night. Not very crowded, so we were seated immediately. The service was quick and the server very friendly. There were three of us and two ordered the ribs and one a BBQ sandwich. The ribs were wonderful, full of flavor and very tender. Loved the BBQ sauce, had a slight kick of... More

It wasn't the worst, and it wasn't the best. It was your typical smokehouse flavor. Would I come here again. Sure.

Ran into this place for a cold one and snacks. ended up staying 5 hrs and watching the race. Food was very good (had the Prime rib sandwich) but the atmosphere was exceptional! the only thing that beat it was the service and hospitality. Mary Ann and Reese at the outside deck bar took great care of us and treated... More
