Be prepared to wait to get in, I thought the food was fine but didn't really justify the price. The setup inside in nice enough and suits the area. For food wise the ribs just didn't hit the spot on what I normally expect from a BBQ place. The fried chicken was very good, nice and dry and not too... More

My wife was right. You go to a place with a pig in its logo, you order the pork, not the beef. She had the pork ribs which were quite good -- tender and with a decent amount of smoke to them. The only downside was that they already had a too-sweet sauce plastered on them when they arrived at... More

Stopped here for lunch after a long bike ride. My husband said some of the best ribs he's had. He loved the smokey flavor, my son loved them too! I had the seafood chowder which was really good. We started with the calamari which I would pass on even though the kids ate it all quickly. I think they were... More

Great food, for the meat eaters and even the non-meat eaters in our group. Celebrating a birthday on the Cape and the birthday guy only wanted BBQ. Did not think we would find it and figured it would not be much if we did.. Marconi's proved us wrong. The food was great, the staff friendly and engaging ( Kevin was... More

I'm wondering why I am not seeing more recent reviews of this restaurant, and perhaps because the correct name is "Russ & Marie's Marconi Beach BBQ and Seafood Restaurant". Even though this establishment is a bit of a drive from where we stay when on the Cape, everyone in our party feels the excellent fried chicken is worth the drive.... More

We had a take out meal as were running late on our way back from the beach. We had various combo meals, all good and tasty, with a lot of food for your money. I didn't like the sweet potato, but that's just my personal taste. There aren't many BBQ places on the Cape, so It gets 4 stars as... More

At the recommendation of permanent Cape Cod residents, we ate there for lunch. The delicious smells from the smoker strategically situated in front made our mouths water as soon as we exited the car. The restaurant was not crowded at the odd hour, although when we passed by later, the place was packed. Our service was excellent, and the food... More

Caught a whif of the smoker while driving to the beach in the am. Knew it would be a 'must stop' on the way home from the beach. So glad we did. Outstanding pulled pork mac and cheese, pulled chix sandwich, buffalo chix mac and cheese had the appropriate amount of hots to give a runny nose. Ample menu, bar... More

Heading back from Provincetown, I noticed this BBQ place, Russ and Marie's. It was packed and it looked intriguing for sure. The decor is endearing, as it has been a part of Marconi Beach community for quite some time now. The decor is reminiscent of the early 1980's cottage style setting with plenty of maritime art, maps and kitsch all... More

Been to this BBQ place a few times over the years and is always consistently good BBQ like brisket that melts in your mouth and ribs that fall off the bone. This time I tried the lobster roll and was very impressed. The price was excellent along with just the right amount of mayo and celery on a grilled roll... More
