Enjoyed our barbecue!

We were attracted by the delicious smells and cute decor and we were not disappointed! Delicious deviled eggs, must try steak bomb egg rolls and great BBQ! Small restaurant with a nice bar.

Was so glad to find Barbeque!!! Loved the food and the beer was cold. Spouse stated the tea was the best! Easy parking and we were sad we did not have time to go back and enjoy the nightly music.

My husband and I smelled the BBQ as we were walking by (mmm), so we decided to stop in for a bite to eat. The place was very small and very loud. They had a few low tables and about four high tables. The menu is very limited. I had the pulled pork sandwich and my husband had the Cuban... More

Family & I stopped by this place for a late lunch (almost 2:00pm) on a Sunday. The sign out in front touted "low country BBQ." After sitting down at a table, the wait person handed us a vey limited brunch menu. To me, what should be separating this restaurant from most others is the serving of BBQ - you can... More

We've been several times before on our annual trip to salem. We went for the entertainment and knew it would be crowded. The place is no bigger than a small livingroom, which makes it cute. There was one guy waiting tables and 2 behind the bar (male and female) ordered drinks the guy was very friendly and asked if we... More

I have been here twice, and loved the dishes I ordered both times- delicious clam chowder! The restaurant is unique, the food is great and the staff was always really friendly! I will definitely be back again

We got the pulled pork and jalapeño corn bread. Soo yummy! Cute little casual spot for a bite to eat in Salem.

Poor food, indifferent service. The pulled pork and pulled chicken were mediocre at best. Fries were inedible. The staff. Argued over who HAD to take our order. I should have been tipped of when we walked in at 6:00 on a Thursday night and the only other patrons were at the bar. There are too many great restaurants out there... More

Wow! How can this place earn 5 stars from anyone?? I really can't wrap my head around it. Yes, I'm a local, and only live 30 seconds away from it. I've lived next to The Pigs Eye for over a year now. I've never eaten there and for good reason. I see things, I hear things, and I smell it... More

Not sure if it was just an off day but I kept hearing by locals that we needed to eat here. Was decent so I've nothing negative to say. Just not great. Or at least a great as everybody made out.
