Great BBQ

I am not a fan of BBQ but having eaten lunch here I changed my mind. Great BBQ chicken, Brunswick stew, BBQ pulled pork...can't wait to go back next year if we end up in Oak Island.

Good Bar-B-Que at the Beach? Surely you jest! But this isn't just good bar-b-que, it is excellent bar-b-que and I know a few things about good bar-b-que. My wife and I eat there regularly and they catered the annual picnic for my fly fishing club. There was enough food for the 3rd Chinese Army. They have all the sauces anyone... More

Eaten here many times. Best bbq on the beach.real bbq that is smoked, not processed in an oven.good sides and deserts. Best part is you choose your own sauce, but the bbq is great without sauce

On the Island for a late fall week-long camping/fishing trip. Needed a break from our own cooking so, on advice of of locals, tried this BBQ joint. Locals must get a kickback for recommending as this place was certainly nothing special, maybe even below average what we'd come to expect from Carolina 'Q' joints. Service was pretty much so-so. The... More

Today we had an early dinner at the Barbeque House and it was good as usual. We had some out of town visitors that had gone to the beach and we met with them at the restaurant. The restaurant is very casual and therefore coming off the beach directly is OK. One in our party does not like barbeque but... More

My husband loves barbeque so we usually eat here a lot. It is a family restuarant . You don't have to worry about what you wear or the time of day. It is just a great casual environment. I am not a barbeque person but I love theirs. I have also tried their salads and their Brunswick Stew is great.... More

Excellent barbeque with reasonable prices. It is always the first restaurant we go to when we visit Oak Island. This year we took some of the barbeque sauces home with us.
