I had the barbecued chicken with the white sauce. I had never had this before but it was good. The serving size was plentiful and the meat had great flavor. The smell brought us in!

Enjoyed a delicious dinner with the fastest service I have ever encountered. The brisket is amazing. It literally melts in your mouth. Three yummy sauces to choose from. The cole slaw is just ok, skip it and try the fries. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Six of us went for lunch last week. The ribs and brisket were deemed good. The green beans way too salty and soft! The grilled portobello sandwich was tough! Cole slaw tasteless. The highlight was the peach cobbler! My advice is to walk further down the block.

Terrific BBQ and absolutely outstanding Brunswick Stew!!! They have a great view of the water too - all around great dining experience in a casual atmosphere. Highly recommend Q.

I ordered a bowl of the Bunswick stew for a late lunch. It was unbearably sweet - like candy. I sent it back and ordered a substitute of blacked fish tacos. The fish was very fatty and not blackened in the least. My wife's order of pulled pork wraps was served on stale wraps. The waitperson was very helpful and... More

We stopped in Beauford on July 26th and found they were having their summer "Water Weekend" celebration. Everything was packed. This restaurant was recommended. It is right in the center of town and faces the waterfront. It was extremely busy. The staff were stretched very thin. Our watress had at least six tables of 5 or more and then the... More

The WORST food in Beaufort. During my recent visit, I ordered the egg roll appetizer. Not at all what I expected, as apparently the chef changes "flavor" nightly. The egg rolls were filled with the fattiest beef briscuit I've ever tasted. Basically, a solid roll of lard with cheese added. For a moment it sounded okay to have beef and... More

We are old and the bar was loud when we got there. However the drunks left and the band was good. Too bad we could get anything but wings and fries.

A very nice barbeque option. Being from SC, I have had some good barbeque at some hole-in-the-wall restaurants. Q on Bay is a little more formal than a typical barbeque joint. Atmosphere is excellent, as well as service. The building decor and location are nice being right on Bay Street at the waterfront park. A lot of good options for... More

Ate there for lunch during the waterfront festival, so it was very busy. Enjoyed my salad and the egg rolls were terrific. Sit inside with a view of the water or inside. Good old fashioned cooking with quite a twist.
