The ribs are plentiful but not much bbq taste to be honest. The two guys strumming and singing, location and friendly staff rescued the situation for us. Good selection of beer .

Walked in front door. Seemed to be ignored by front of house staff. Once we went to the back things were much better. Smoked wings good, hot made F,F. were greasy and almost inedible. Service was good

I visited this restaurant in April '15 on a Sunday evening for a late dinner while house hunting in Beaufort. We arrived around 8:00pm and looked around for a hostess or employee for a couple of minutes while wondering if we needed to wait to be seated or seat ourselves as there were open tables. We walked toward the back... More

We had the ribs and buffalo shrimp. The shrimp and ribs were ok. The collards were good. The guiness was not. Our bartender was very good. the restaurant was crowded so we sat at the bar but there is a nice porch with a view of the river.

I was on a bus trip and they catered a buffet dinner just for us. It was great and the food was delicious. The staff was so friendly and efficient. Also one of the owner's Mom makes the deserts which were delicious.

The Q indicates BBQ. I had a brisket platter with shrimp that was really good with their 3 sauces. The had Brunswick Stew as a soup, which my friend thought was terrific. They had fun sounding specials - a special egg roll, etc. but one can only eat so much. If I'm ever back in Beaufort, I'd take friends there... More

My wife and I visited in late April. Nice location. We chose to to sit inside because of the cool breeze. Mac & cheese was great. Fries were excellent. I thought the brisket on my sandwich was a little dry.
