Stopped by Q on Bay for lunch with my husband and both of us were, well, underwhelmed with the food (pulled pork tacos and the Q French Dip sandwich). The portions were modest for the price. Pulled pork was on the greasy side and lacking the smoked flavor I had hoped for. The French Dip was mostly bread and the... More

Start with the chili cheese fries to get your meal revved up. We went for the BBQ sampler platter and it was delicious. Don't pass up the Bama sauce. It was a hit with our entire table. The service was great even though we were a party of 10 taking up 2 tables.

Although we visited a few times due to the awesome bar service (thanks, Blaire), we did eat there one night with family. Overall, everyone was happy. I'd say the highlight was the smoked and fried chicken wings along with the sliced brisket. I also really liked the Carolina vinegar BBQ sauce, it really perked up the otherwise bland french fries.... More

We tested the limits of a staff that seemed to be ending or beginning a shift, lots of conversation among them as prep was done out in the dining room that might better have been done at a station or in the kitchen. Some of the food was cool (pulled pork) although when I asked, our server was very happy... More

On one of the hottest days possible in August, I visited this restaurant. We sat in the bar and had a the sandwiches on special and the drink of the day (which the bartender taught me to make). The service was great and the food was delicious. I will definitely return on my next trip south!

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...
