Best BBQ!!!!!

We have had BBQ from up and down the east coast and Ga. This place beats them all hands down on not only pork but beef and chicken also.

The Barbecue House is reviewed under two different names. Check the address and you'll see it's the same place as Bar-B-Que House on Oak Island. The barbecue and ribs are very good and the atmosphere is comfortable and casual. There are various sides, such as green beans, baked beans, potato salad, okra, and collards. If you want fried chicken, plan... More

Recently went here with my wife for lunch. The food was excellent and a good value. Server was very friendly. I would highly recommend. Nothing fancy but good food for a good price.

Love love the Ribs and the atmosphere here. Everyone is so friendly and the place is laid back. More a "come as you are" type place OR call in your order and pick it up.

Learn the difference between Eastern Carolina and Western Carolina BBQ. Take some sauce home, yum. Sometimes you wait for a table, be patient. Or call in the order, pick it up and enjoy at home.

We stopped here for lunch and was pleasantly astounded. I order the smoked chicken plate and my hubby ordered the BBQ plate. Both were awesome!!! The Mac and Cheese is freaking fantabulous and the Hushpuppies rock! Really you will not be disappointed.

We went there yesterday. It is as good as it was every other year we have been here. This is my son's favorite place to eat on the Island.

We always stop by the Barbecue house at least twice every time we are in Oak Island. It is a great family restaurant and a perfect place to take the grandkids for dinner. They have great choices for kids under 10 and also give them tokens for a prize from the toy machines up front which is a big hit... More

We look forward to eating here all the way from Youngstown, Ohio! We visit Oak Island every spring and every fall and eat here at least 3 times each visit! You will never have a bad meal! Fantastic southern style-you will not find a better restaurant anywhere! It's not fancy-foam plates and plastic forks but that keeps the prices down:)
