My Bestie had been wanting some BBQ all the time we were at Oak Island, so We got online and found the Barbeque House. Service was friendly, Portions large and the food was great. Fun atmosphere.

The Barbeque House has been a local favorite for years. Their in house smoked meat is delicious and they offer several sauce choices to suite you taste. Service is always friendly and fast. The beef, pork and chicken is tender and delectable. For desert, the peach cobbler is very good! A great budget friendly family restaurant for eat in or... More

We were returning from an exploration trip to Bald Head Island and got hungry early. Why not let the GPS find us a restaurant? We did, and this is the place it lead us to. Boy were we ever happy with that choice! There's easy on and off the main road. The building is clean and well maintained. The staff... More

We like Barbeque. We appreciate value. We came for the Barbeque, we'd return for the hush-puppies, and we're posting this review for the value. For 7.99 you can't beat this at twice the price.

The servers and counter staff treat you like old friends. The pulled pork and barbeque sauces are delicious. The selection of sauces is so large that half of the fun of eating is trying the different sauces. This is definitely not a heart healthy restaurant but it doesn't pretend to be. Good food served with love -- that's what you... More

The BBQ ribs are outstanding. The sides, though a little pricy, are very good too. You can't go wrong with the hush puppies and cinnamon butter. True Southern cooking at its best.

WOW! I was so glad we found this little gem. We drove around one night for about 20 minutes trying to make a dinner choice. We ventured towards this end of the island after seeing the BBQ House on an app. It had good reviews and a variety of food offerings. Thank goodness for the app, it was not wrong... More

We were looking for a place to eat on a Monday night, two of the places we stopped were closed; we decided to try this BBQ place. Everything was really good, the ribs and bbq pork sandwich, slaw, hush puppies. And some of the most polite wait staff I've met!! All in all, extremely enjoyable.

Not a bad place if you want small portions and cheap prices for lunch specials. Bbq was a little dry and the sauces were not much to write home about.

They do a nice job of smoking their pork and chicken. Smoked wings rock. The smoked chicken breast is good but inconsistent in size and sometimes too dry but when it's good it's very good. BBQ pork sand rocks. Get it with white slaw and vinegar based sauce.
