A lifetime favorite!

I've been eating at Wise's since I was a toddler, and still return whenever I can. They make and serve SC mustard-based barbecue sauce, which I was raised on, and it's still my fave. (No, there is no ketchup- or tomato-based sauce in the building.) I love the chopped pork best, but also enjoy... read more

It's a dive ok BUT delicious! Pork, chicken, beef out of this world! It lacks some in its decor. it's a super simple county place that has changed very little in many years! If ya want fancy this not the place for you, but for simple southern BBQ it is a can't miss!!

Not sure words can describe what we walked into! We were on our way to Charleston very late in the evening and were trying to find something other than fast food. (Mind you, we were getting pretty tired and hungry..lol) We took the advice of others on Trip Advisor and.....well let's just say, we went in the front door, took... More

Wises BQ has a unique flavor and texture. I loved the BQ and all of our gusest at the lake enjoyed it equally. I will be using them every time I need a BQ Party.

As a previous reviewer said, there is an African American man who makes his way around the tables chatting with customers, but he usually gets the hint if you're not in the mood to talk. The bbq is worth the... More

I have been eating at Wise's since I was a small child. I have wonderful memories of going to Wise's with my Grandparents. I love this place and think this is the best BBQ in South Carolina!

Food was good but has a flaming queer black man serving the food. He started saying unwanted comments toward me to the point I left without finishing my meal. Will not EVER go to this place again!!!!!!!
