Good BBQ

Nice place to sit on the water and enjoy a really good band with good BBQ. In my opinion much better experience than the so called number 1 rated restaurant on trip advisor. Good menu variety and ribs/wings combo was very good.

I just left this place and can't wait to return. I had the BBQ Cobb salad, very big and plentiful. My friend had the blackened tacos that was also very delicious. The waitress was excellent and very helpful. (We had a very unhappy 2 year-old) She was most accommodating. The atmosphere was nice and the view was breathtaking.

Very simple...the food was great, but the lack of service ruined it! I won't go back because of it. Watched a table leave because NO ONE waited on them after they'd been there for 20 minutes. No excuse.

We went here on a Friday night. They were clearly just getting over a rush and starting another. We were sat on the patio, order placed, food served, ate and left within an hour! The service was great as our Server Hunter was very sweet and attentive to all her tables. Will go next time and try the BBQ. We... More

We had the special of pork loin with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies. It was really good! I was very impressed with the steamed veggies because they were seasoned well and cooked to perfectly! We also had a strawberry cake for desert, which we were told was home made by the owner daily! It was to die for! Best dinner... More

No matter what kind of food you get at Q on Bay it is awesome. From the seafood to the BBQ, you just can't go wrong. We could eat there every day

The title says it all. The restaurant is on the main drag in Beaufort and sits perfectly so that the kids could go out into the park and play while we enjoyed appetizers and drinks. It's really a perfect location (which is why I gave it 2 stars instead of 1). The beer menu is pretty good (not great), but... More

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

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.

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
