Took the wife there 3 times, all 3 were the same. On the best day average service, tasty real smoked meat but always DRY and often room temperature barbecue, sides were nothing special . Not much to say as it was forgettable. I do not know why it is so highly rated as some my coworkers had similar experiences, others... More

This is a laid-back place in a strip mall with a country cowboy feel. Wait staff is friendly and always helpful and efficient. All the BBQ sauces you could want in a 6 pack of sauces at each table. Kids can write on the tableclothes which has the wait person's name on it in case you need to call for... More

As someone from the cattle and bison regions of our nation, I was very frustrated at what the area called burgers until the County Grill! They have the best burgers and brisket on the entire peninsula bar none! You won't be disappointed!!!

Not only is the BBQ the best, but everything is great at the County Grill. The burgers, the brisket, the warm potato salad and the potato boats are my favorites. The menu includes a great selection of meals and the helpings are huge. You will probably need a box to take half of your meal home for later. The warm... More

During a business trip to Hampton, Virginia I checked Trip Advisor for some information on local restaurants. The County Grill and Smokehouse received very good reviews so I gave it a try for lunch. The reviews were correct - it was excellent. I ate at the bar and the service was outstanding. Great recommendation (two meat combo) from the bartender.... More

This has an enormous selection of beers, also ciders and lagers. The food is excellent and especially the pulled pork also has live bands at weekends recommended to visit if in the area.
