Another visit to Q, another disappointment. Mostly mediocre whether it is the food or the service. But, there is a nice selection of draft beers! Had to ask 3 times and 2 different people just to get some flatware AFTER our dinners had been delivered. Went with grand kids this trip and the service is just TOO SLOW for little... More

Really nice take on traditional southern comfort foods. Especially enjoyed BBQ, Mac and Cheese, and Pecan Pie was a really good variant, very moist and a more pronounced (but good) brown sugar flavor.

Ate here outside on a chilly night as we had our Lab with us and they allowed her. It was quite nippy, but the manager found a propane tank and lit a heater for us. The waitress was professional and quite pleasant. We didn't have a heavy meal, but the brisket items we ordered were tender & tasty. The rice... More

The view out on the deck is wonderful! Enjoyed some cocktails and tried the BBQ. I found the BBQ a bit to smokey but some like it like that. Friendly staff. Decent prices.

What a disappointment and a waste of money. My mother was in town and wanted BBQ. We got there about 7:30 pm and I ordered the BBQ pulled pork platter. She asked me what sides I wanted and I said a baked potato. She then informed me that they were out of potatoes (at 7:30? really???). So then I changed... More

Took my out of town son here for a view of the river, a good beer and a nice lunch. The bartender is very knowledgable about the local beers, the view on the outside covered patin is great and the food can be good or bad depending on your selection. Stay with the BBQ and it will be very good.... More

Ordered pulled pork sandwich and homecut fries. Pork was in very large chunks and had fat mixed in. Sauces were on the table. I chose the tomato based sauce, which is usually my preference over mustard or vinegar sauces.... Disgusting! Fries were very oily...would probably have been good if oil was fresh. We ordered the ribs also. Again, not good!... More

The food here was okay. The back patio atmosphere over looking the water and location off the main strip makes this place worthwhile. We ordered pork sliders with baked beans and the turkey sandwich with macaroni and cheese. Small portions, definitely leaves room for dessert somewhere else. The other waitresses we saw working appeared to be attentive and friendly, our... More

Lesson #1 - don't order fish tacos from a BBQ place. We ordered a variety of 'sliders' including fish tacos, pulled pork, and brisket. Skip the taco and enjoy the pulled pork and brisket. Large portions, friendly staff, cold beer, enjoyable patrons - well worth a visit. During decent weather, they have a very large enclosed porch.

Went to Q on Bay for the first time. Started with a few chicken wings and a Yuengling. Their wings are cooked to perfection and the "white tiger" sauce is out of this world. Followed up with a pulled pork sandwich...good serving size on a really nicely toasted bun. Highly recommend this place if you're in Beaufort.
