We read about this place on Tripadvisor and it sounded really appealing. Finding it was a little hard as there was no road sign at the end of the road but if you can see the Police station, you are on track, keep it on your right and follow the quiet road towards the beach. Before long you will find... More

We were pleasantly surprised at how amazing the food was. My son really liked this place because there is a playground right next to where we sat. The 1.5lb newyork steak was good quality and was a friendly price to your wallet! Nice family joint.

I had a Tumon Bay BBQ with shrimp, mussels, corn, and salad. It was absolutely delightful. I will return.

Core BBQ Garden has always been my favorite restaurant. Their oyster Aioli($15.00) and salmon glill ($18.00) are great. They have reasonable price and their staffs are very friendly! Also their outdoor seating is comfortable and the free island show is awesome!

CORE BBQ is a classy outdoor BBQ. This is the first time I've seen my food presented to me before it is cooked to showcase their quality which proves that they have nothing to hide. The owners are actively providing service and the employees work like they want to be there. The show is the icing to the cake. I... More

I have gone regularly to Core for the last two years. The owners treat very well and continue to improve the ambiance and quality. Core is the only beach bar on Tumon. Residents say that Tumon was all beach bar 30 years ago, and Core captures that experience.

Nice unique location for dining (if you need to eat somewhere different for a change). Food was OK. Nothing remarkable.

Core BBQ Garden is Japanese owned, which is a nice breath of fresh air if you know anything about japanese service. We didn't have reservations but he and his wife welcomed us in and even gave us free beers. The Two Lovers meal was more than enough for my gf and I. $75 for a lobster, two steaks and many... More

Off the beaten path, the Core is an oasis! It's hard to find an non-hotel jungle-come-beach bbq place to just chill and have a few drinks and sample the tasty food without spending a bundle and feeling like a tourist, but this is it. Not a lot of locals dine there yet but everyone feels local and welcome when they... More
