Good food, good craft beer, good service, good price

I was pleasantly surprised (only because I hadn't been there before) to meet my colleague out on the back porch, and enjoy some fabulous barbeque turkey breast (YUM!) with dandy sides (the corn bread really is good) and a craft beer for under 20 bucks. I had the sweet potato fires (I like to... read more

This is my second visit. My guest had a beer that he really enjoyed. We got a seat right away but that is likely because it was 5:30 on a Thursday. As we were leaving it was starting to pick up. The food was very good as were the sauces. I still think Bad Brads is better all around but... More

I was taken here by some work colleagues while visiting Detroit on business. They assured me it was the best BBQ in the area. They certainly weren't wrong. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was amazing, and there was tons of it. I would definitely return here when I'm next in Detroit. Since being back in London I've... More

Brought a party of 40+ people here and was amazed at the excellent service and the for thats to die for. Good BBQ is not easy to find anywhere, but this place does it way better then most. Had no shortage of good food, everything was good and of a good proportion. Must eat place in the area!

The sides are wonderful, and the bbq is delicious. I loved the pulled pork nachos and beer selection. You could make a meal out of those!

We've eaten at Lochart's numerous times and always had awesome service and food! This is a great family restaurant as it gets loud when the tables are full which masks child noise pretty well. Go early or be willing to wait for a table or enjoy a craft beer, wine or mixed drink.

The food here was just okay when they opened but I believe they have hit their stride. Although some items on the menu are questionably overpriced, others seem downright cheap. The brisket/mac and cheese is enough for three meals and it clocks in at $12 for instance. All in all a decent experience.

Lockhart's BBQ has a tasty menu featuring brisket, chicken, pork, sausages, and burgers. The side dishes are excellent--especially the corn casserole and potato salad. Great beer selection, good ambiance, all nestled in downtown Royal Oak. After dinner take a stroll down Main Street, take in a show or a concert. There is lots to do in Royal Oak!

The four of us really enjoyed our food. The lean brisket was especially good. The Carolina pulled pork, the dos chantos, and the brisket sammy were also very good. The sides are fine but not outstanding. Service is very good. The added dining area downstairs has relieved the overcrowding that was kinda annoying in the past. When we were finishing... More

We shared a big sandwich and ordered a mac and cheese that had been tips in it. Would definitely go back the service was also amazing as she was very descriptive of the menu items, suggesting we...
