Stopped in for a late bite during Water Festival Weekend. Had a Q Tini and wings! Just what my group needed before going out to listen to the band on the waterfront park!

As locals we visit Q on Bay quite a bit. The selection is varied, the staff is friendly, and the prices are good. If you sit on the back porch you can watch the Beaufort River and the Waterfront Park activities. Love their beverages too!

During our first visit to Beaufort, SC, we made a list of the highest-rated things to do, places to eat, stay, etc., and Q on Bay was one of them. We began with AMAZING drinks at the bar and "John" went out of his way to befriend us and make us feel welcome. Never before had we met a bar... More

We we're surprised to get seated so quickly, even during the Water Festival. Dinner was delicious, my guys LOVE their wings. I had the fresh fish that night blackened and it was wonderful. Very fresh. Love their fresh cut French fries too. The only disappointment this visit was perhaps the Mac & Cheese that is usually so good was unusually... More

My family and I had dinner after spending the afternoon in Beaufort. We got to Q a little after 5, and immediately got seated. The staff was very friendly! Our waitress offered suggestions for "seasonal" and "waterfront festival" drinks, as well as answered questions/made suggestions regarding menu options. We ordered the egg rolls as an appetizer, and they were delicious!... More

Stopped here for lunch and it was wonderful. 3 different sauces depending on your taste. We got the three slider plate and I got a watermelon salad. BBQ was on point. The salad had more of everything but WATERMELON. In July weather in the south I expected chunks of watermelon with fewer greens more onions and cheese (don't remember if... More

I went for lunch with my husband. From the reviews I was expecting much better. The food was terrible and it took forever to come. We had chicken fingers for an app. They were overcooked and dry. Then we both had the Q-ban sandwich. I asked for mine without cole slaw on it (who puts cole slaw on a cuban???),... More

Sometimes you just want a little something. We popped in to cool off and have a quick snack. Our service was fast and friendly, and the pulled pork quesadillas hit the spot.
