Drive Out of Your Way

I would drive out of my way to eat here again. Take notice that off to the side of the restaurant you will see quite a large smoker and piles of wood. I honestly think this was the best BBQ I have had. I am so glad we stopped and look forward to heading back to Chicago and stop here... read more

Amazing BBQ as expected. Our family ordered a variety of meat and sides and were pleased with everything that came to the table. (including brisket, ribs, tips, etc.) Place was incredibly clean (including the bathrooms) and staff was happy to serve. Food came out quickly and ready to eat.

I stopped by here on a business trip, and I'm so glad I did. The food was outstanding. The people were very hospitable and kind. Lark even stopped our table to say hello. Whenever you're in the area, I highly recommend you stop by this place.

We just love coming here for the friendly service and the amazing BBQ! We liked it so much that we had them cater our wedding. Get the ribs, get the Mac and cheese and definitely check out the fried bologna sandwich! This place never disappoints!

There is a wonderful BBQ restaurant in downtown Benton Harbor - New interior - clean facility with the best BBQ we had. I had their beef brisket with beans and slaw - my wife had their "Blessed Man" sandwich - the meat was cooked perfectly and their sauce was very good. Service was quick and the prices were reasonable. Take... More

If you're staying in the Benton harbor/ St. Joe area, do yourself a favor and visit Lark & Sons BBQ. This used to be part of a hand car wash, and on the web, you can be misled to the old (wrong address). So, make sure you're heading to the restaurant without the BBQ. While a little bit sweet for...

My son and I were headed out to St. Joe downtown, so I stopped in Larks for lunch. We brought our lunch with us, and everyone who saw us asked where we got our food. I directed EVERYONE there. Sorry Boy Scouts selling brats!

I stopped in here with my children and we had a delightful meal. The kids had a pork sandwich (which my 7-year-old devoured), white meat chicken, and mac and cheese. All were delicious. I had the ribs and tips combo (the only reason I'm giving this a 4 is because I have had slightly better ribs and tips, but it... More

We stopped here for BBQ for dinner and were NOT disappointed! Got BBQ pulled pork, macaroni & cheese, and the sweet corn nuggets. All were wonderful. Better than that was the staff! They were so friendly, in fact, that we came back the next day for brunch. The shrimp and grits was just enough to fill you up, and tasted... More
