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

I have been visiting Larks for several years now and always get the same thing. An order of Rib Tips with Fries. Since their move into their new building, I unfortunately have to report that the quality of the meat has declined. Although the sauce flavoring is outstanding, the tips themselves are too gristly, fatty and chewy. Larks does have... More

I started frequenting Larks about 15 years ago and I still don't know what my favorite menu item is. Country Style Pork, Catfish Sandwich, Pig on a Bun, Blessed Man Sandwich are all recommended. Save room for some of Mrs. Lark's peach cobbler or carrot cake. Prepare to nap afterwards as the portions are huge and the prices are small.

On a snowy Sunday night, we decided to finally stop by Lark's. We were sure glad we did. The new building is really nice and the people working were very friendly and helped us decide what to get. (We ordered the 1/2 Feast). I had read several reviews that said this was Southern BBQ. We decided we didn't care if... More

Great BBQ ribs and chicken, with all of the side dishes you would expect. A long time favorite that has recently moved into very attractive new sit-down facilities. We have been pleased on multiple occasions with our take out.

If you like some of the more unique types of BBQ this is the place for you. More fish, turkey knuckles, pigs feet, etc. here than you will find in most places. Smelling the food,cooking outside on the grill when you enter is very inviting. Portions are large (four bones is plenty for one person) and sides are good. New... More
