tasty Carolina BBQ!

We came here for a late lunch. Had the'Barnyard' PLatter. A sampling of all of their meats. Two of us were able to eat it off of one order as it is huge! Do not order one per person! THe Alabama sauce is very good. This is in the middle of historic downtown. Nice location with outdoor and indoor... read more

The restaurant was nice with a great patio out back just outside the beautiful Water Front Park. The waitress did a good job, but the food left much to be desired! We love good BBQ, but this one was very greasy and fatty. Both the mac and cheese and greens had no flavor and were not hot. The best part... More

Just have the pulled pork! Either in sliders, or on your nachos, or as a sandwich. Really good barbeque sauces, and I'm from Memphis, so I know!

After a round of golf my old high school buddy and me needed lunch and a beer. He said he wanted to eat at the BBQ place on Bay Street. I said, what BBQ place is that. Well, this restaurant has been so many different things I didn't notice it had changed again. We loved the PBR on draft and... More

We stopped by on our way out of Beaufort and we all voted it our favorite place. Everything was spot on from the waitress to the food and especially the dessert. Our waitress was fantastic and so aware of what we might need. The food was great (adults and kids are everything). The ambiance was great. Again the waitress always... More

We went there for the craft beer on tap, advertised that they had over 13. They were out of everything and the waitress did not know until she went to get it and had to keep coming back to us, because what we replaced our order with would be out also. Service was slow and the food just so-so. Many... More

Cute place with water views in the back. Good service. Even though I was seated under the ac pipe and condensation kept hitting my shoulder, I would still eat here again because the BBQ was good. Surprisingly good grilled local Mahi Mahi. The portions were nicely sized. Decent prices.
