Sunday Lunch Date

The best bar-b-que on the peninsula!! Smoked pulled pork bar-b-que, smoked on site daily!! Great cole slaw and bar-b-que baked beans. 6 of their own sauces means they have a bar-b-que sauce for every taste. 😃

We were in Hampton VA and we decided to get BBQ. We are from Texas so we are BBQ connoisseurs. I didn't have very high expectations, but it was a couple of miles from our destination. They had six or so different sauces from around the country. I tasted them all but the BBQ didn't need sauce. It was sooooo... More

Locally owned County Grill & Smokehouse serves the best reasonably priced BBQ and assorted sides on the Peninsula. The restaurant is easy to get to since it is located on Route 17 a short distance north of the I64 / Rte 17 interchange. The restaurant recently expanded its indoor seating area due to its increased number of customers. It also... More

Wonderful chicken strips. Their fries and mash potatoes are out of this world. And their margaritas are off the hook. Great place for lunch and dinne . Go early for they always have a long line to get in.

We like to mainly eat at locally owned restaurants. Today we ventured to County Grill. What a treat. The service was phenomenal and the food was fabulous. The combo platters are large enough for 2 adults. We shared the individual size baked banana pudding. The baked meringue on top is heavenly. Oh my!! There are 6 types of BBQ sauce... More

Staff is good for the most part. I'm a regular customer (once or twice a week on average over many years) ~food quality and preparation has suffered, it's gotten worse bit by bit, managers don't seem to care. Baked beans were burned, pork chops (fried) used to be tender and tasty, they were tough and not seasoned properly on this... More

We are regulars at County Grill and can always count on them for excellent barbecue and a variety of other tasty dishes. Nothing fancy but friendly staff and quick service make visits enjoyable. Don't miss the strawberry shortcake in season.

We have family celebration there, anywhere from 15 to 25 people every time we go. My daughter birthday was in March, on a Friday night, we have a 10 waited to be seated and the food was served quick and deleous. Anywhere else we go as a family 2hrs wait. We love the grill.
