Great little place

I'm not sure why Sibley's isn't rated higher. They have a good selection of food at unheard of prices. Food is tasty with lots of choices for side items. I've enjoyed the brisket, pulled BBQ chicken, and corn fritters. Everything has always been delicious. Waitstaff is courteous and quick to meet... read more

This is one of my very favorite places to eat! You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu here! The food is always delicious and plentiful, the service is always fabulous and the restaurant and restrooms are always clean. Make sure you get some hush puppies and sweet tea and try the cobbler for dessert too!

Took my mom here for lunch on her birthday. The portions were generous, prices reasonable. The BBQ was so yummy..juicy and flavorful. My mouth is watering at the memory. Our server was friendly and attentive. We tried the corn fritters and fell in love! We just moved to the area, and I'm so glad I've found delicious barbecue that is... More

I may be from the north but I love a good BBQ Joint. Sibley's was just that. Outstanding service with that southern hospitality. The brisket was very good. The pork BBQ and sides were all above average. The ribs were good but could have been a bit more tender. The hush puppies were a bit greasy and could have been... More

I've always had a good meal here, but I'm writing because I had the best beef brisket of my life at Sibley's on Saturday. It was melt in your mouth delicious. I also had the corn fritters (delicious) and cole slaw (so good). No matter if you do take out or eat in, the food will be amazing!

Just ate at Sibley's, but was disappointed. We thought the BBQ was okay, but the Hush Puppies were oily. We've had better elsewhere. We will not return!

Think Cracker Barrel without the store, but with better food and friendlier service. The fried catfish, boiled redskin potatoes, and garden salad reminded me of family meals growing up.

We stopped here at random as we drove by. One of their daily specials was " Rockfish ". Rockfish is a great fish and just happens to be in-season this time of year, so I jumped on it and looked forward to it. Unfortunately they chose to create 1" by 4 " prices of filet ( almost like " fish... More
