We all wanted to try South Carolina's take in BBQ, and were presently surprised with the food here. It was a little pricier than other BBQ restaurants, but the atmosphere was warm and cozy, the staff friendly, and the food was tasty and abundant. We opted for the usual fare including pulled pork, ribs, and brisket which were all yummy... More

Great place on Beaufort's main shopping street. We had the Q-Dip (French Dip) and the ribs. Both were very good. We will go back the next time we are in town.

This BBQ establishment has excellent wings and the ribs were so-so. The sides were excellent. The Mac and cheese was baked and creamy. My wife said the collards were some of the best she has ever tasted and the baked beans were meaty and unique. More like pintos. The service was superb. We were there early and then attended a...

Went with friends who recently moved to Beaufort. Restaurant was fairly large and the staff seemed friendly. Our friends wife ordered the wedge salad special and ended up with a mixed green salad, not what she wanted. He ordered the pulled pork tacos and was satisfied with the dish. My wife had the pulled pork quesadilla and thought it was... More

we had the brisket today and it was very tough and dry. The baked potato was good. We sat next to the back door and the server who was waiting on the patio kept holding the door open. This had to be one of the chilliest days for the season and her doing that certainly didn't help with keeping our... More

We were there for late drinks and had to try the wings everyone raved about. They were worth stuffing ourselves a little more for. On the water, very casual but fun.

The open air seating was full when we arrived. Inside seating was OK and our server was there right away. Three of the four of us had brisket in one form or another and it was good! The soup of the day, Gumbo, was mediocre at best. It could have been served hotter and one was sent back to be... More

Good range of standard BBQ dishes... always well executed. Nice riverfront covered outdoor setting option. Everything we've eaten here has been really tasty. Nice owner and servers. A really pleasant place to get some Q. LOVE the green beans... slow cooked and taste like Grandma's.
