It is a shed. The seating is at picnic tables. My wife and I visited in late August and it was hot. The decor is not easy to describe; you've got to see it to believe it. After all the raves I have heard, I expected a real BBQ experience. With the exception of the beans and potato salad sides... More

Great food. Offers inside and outside seating. The food is great. Some of the best barbeque I've eaten. The potato salad can't be beat. Live music is offered. Not fine dining, nor is it meant to be.

Hi George - thanks for getting Fed at The Shed! You picked out some of our favorite items: a plate of tender barbeque, creamy potato salad on the side, and a shed full of great music to enjoy. We hope to see you back again soon! More

You would think that all restaurants in the South would have air conditioning. NO not the Shed. It's only 95+ with 97% humidity and a heat index over 100 and you are in a real shed with a tin roof. Hot, miserable, and sweating to death. I don't even know how my food tasted honestly, I just wanted to finish... More

Full disclosure, I've loved the Shed from the first bite, guess I always will. But, and I hate to say it, it's gotten too pricey for the portions. Hopefully they will find a way to balance that out. Because of that, I have to rate them 4 out 5 stars. As I said, always loved the food and always look... More

This place used to be wonderful and our go to for bbq. Since the place burned down and they had their weird t.v. show, the food quality tanked. The bbq tastes nothing like it used to and isn't worth ordering. The service was good. The price of beer was outrageous though. Overall disappointed and won't go back.

We always stop here when we are in the area.......love, love this place. The atmosphere is funky and redneck. The BBQ and sides are over the top Yummy. Both of those combine to make a great eating experience....

Lives up to and exceeds all the hype. If you're on the Gulf Coast don't miss The Shed. We drove out on Sunday morning, intending to orient ourselves to the location and return for dinner. We got there at 10:30AM and people were already arriving for the 11:00AM opening. So we parked and looked around. The entire place is huge.... More

Stopped by here with coworkers after work. The atmosphere here is unique and fun (although in the middle of summer, there wasn't much air so it got a little warm), they have a great selection of beer and the food wasn't bad either. I had the ribs, and the meat fell off the bone....and the potato salad is awesome!!!! Worth... More

Our atmosphere is one of a kind, with our decorations, live bands, and open picnic tables!We're happy to hear you had a swell time even with the heat. It tends to get a little warm with the summer heat, but we bet the delicious beer and tasty BBQ is totally worth it! Especially when you order the potato salad. Thanks... More
