Very good Q in Beaufort

We had dinner here and left totally stuffed. Good barbecue and sides. Service was good and it's a real comfortable place to go when you don't want anything fancy. Nice location on the Bay.

This is our third visit to the Beaufort area, and our first (and last) to Q On Bay. The best part of the entire meal was the service- from there it goes downhill. I ordered a slab of ribs, my wife a ribs and wings combo. The ribs were without a doubt the toughest ones we've ever had! I would... More

My wife and I stopped by for a late lunch and were fortunate enough to get the last table on the covered deck. Our server was very knowledgeable and brought our drinks and food very quickly. My wife had the chicken wrap, which was huge, too much for her to eat. I had the 1/4 fried shrimp, which was a... More

Heard folks talking about this place so we gave it a try. I had the J&B ribs, man they were tender, fall of the bone good, the restaurant is very cool, inside rustic and outside overlooking the river.

Stretching from the street all the way back to a view of the water with indoor and outdoor dining and a sportsbar. We had to wait for a table on a Sunday afternoon and decided to sit outside on a cool day after waiting at the bar. The servers were overwhelmed and quite disorganized. Quesedillas were good as was the... More

Food was pretty good. With 10 of us we had a good selection of the menu. Nothing really stood out but nothing was below par. We would have liked to all sit together but we were told it was a fire Hansard to put tables together and the large tables they said have sat empty while we were broken up... More

A lttle 3 year old girl at a table beside us said "THIS FOOD IS DELICIOUS" - and she was right on. There is a lot of barbecue in the area, some very poor. At this place the food seemed fresher. I had the best collard greens ever as a side. Usually they are mushy and taste like they had... More

Started with the brisket egg roll. Yum...so good. I had barbequed shrimp and wings, both delicious. My husband had ribs...good but not the best he's ever had. He likes them when the meat falls off the bones and they weren't like that. Homemade strawberry pecan layer cake. Absolutely fabulous.

Ate here for the first time in February after just getting into town for the evening and settling in. After walking around several of the shops before closing, we decided to give the place a try. The setting is semi-casual and attracts a variety of people. The food was good, particularly the BBQ, so don't order the fish tacos.... (It... More

Our dinner was excellent. Service was outstanding! Staff is friendly and they all pitch in as a team. It is actually a nice break from seafood.
