The location is great and the interior and exterior spaces are nicely designed. Despite these nice attributes, this was hands down the WORST BARBECUE RIBS I HAVE EVER EATEN. Moreover, the collard greens were not cleaned properly as you could taste dirt and feel it grinding between your teeth with each bite. I was too ashamed for them to tell... More

Stopped in fairly late on a Sunday evening. Nice atmosphere with sports on TV, staff nice and friendly. Food however is average, brisket sliders with baked beans side & Caesar salad (Chicken) ordered. The sliders were overloaded with onion with the brisket having a distinct lack of smokiness, not the best I've ever had. Beans were well flavoured. The salad... More

How can one go wrong with pork especially when it's your speciality! We were excited to try q's the environment and atmosphere looked inviting but we were so disappointed the service was terrible, they had 3 servers two of which were not even old enough to bring alcohol to the table.

Great BBQ and excellent service! Ice cold beer and very good attentive staff. Love the atmosphere and good choices for appetizers. Love the baked beans and collard greens. Would like a hotter sauce for the BBQ but the vinegary sauce is good. Great view of the river and nice porch. The owner Jason is very personable and always there to... More

Took a side trip to Beaufort one afternoon, happened into "Q" for drinks to start the exploration of Bay St, and what a nice surprise! They had a drink menu that had some different drinks on it...not the usual. My wife & I each had a different drink and they were both delicious! Really nice. After chatting with the bartender...

Then this is the place for dinner in Beaufort. Enjoy a wide range of pork dishes, perfectly prepared. Service was friendly and efficient. Located right on the main drag in Beaufort.

Good BBQ and very good service! Love to sit outdoors on the back porch. The owners are always there and very attentive to the customers! Love the baked beans and collard greens just like mama makes!

Ordered a hamburg and I swear that it was either a very inferior cut of meat, or it was not hamburger. I eat hamburgers at the best and not so best places a lot, and this was "the most likely to be impersonating a hamburger" meat I have eaten anywhere. The service was good.

Q on the bay was a delicious Sunday afternoon lunch. The salad my husband got would have been enough for us to split! But my brisket sliders were delicious! Very filling and very tasty.
