This place had great Barbeque! Me and my husband ordered a pint and it was enough for leftovers the next day. We ordered take out here two nights while on vacation. They have good hushpuppies, side salad , grilled chicken salad and fried chicken. The redneck doughnuts are so good and they have a good dip that goes with them.... More

The BBQ was delicious, and we even bought 2 bottles of their sauce to bring home. We enjoyed many different sides also. We will look forward... More

My family and I have visited the BBQ House about 6 times a year for the past 5 years. The food has always brought us back, but lately we have had terrible luck with our service. Our waitress the last 2 visits (Hannah) is awfully rude and impatient. She will approach the table and the first words out of her... More

We look forward to The Barbecue House every year. Food is excellent! When it is busy you can expect a wait.

Went there for dinner tonight and it was really good. The food was tasty and prepared exactly as ordered. I enjoy the house sauce the best. The staff was repeatedly checking to see if our food was as ordered or if there is anything that they could do to make our dinning experience more enjoyable. This all took place while... More

I think it's funny that the Bar be que house has no bad reviews. I posted one on June 26th, because of bad service. We waited thirty minutes and never received our food. I posted a review about this and it disappeared from their web site. Only the good reviews are posted. This is a sad way to drum up... More

One of my fav places! Within walking distance of our vacation house- we stop there every time we come to the island, unload, and need supper! Liove it!

The food was great and everything is reasonably priced. The Mac and cheese and potato salad are amazing.

The food is really good but their customer service needs work. It took forever to get our dinner! The staff should be prepared for their busy season. They've been in business long enough to figure it out! That said...the BBQ is good and we come to eat here every year. The banana pudding is wonderful.
