We have been a couple times and the excuse for the wait is always that they're short-staffed. Our visits have always been on weekends that should have been staffed well. We had to go to the bar to retrieve our drinks last visit after a 30 minute wait. Food is adequate.

Our waitress at Q was the best of any other Beaufort restaurant that we ate at during our trip. She anticipated every need and served with a smile. The food was also wonderful with in house smoked meat and three styles of BBQ sauce to choose from. I also loved the long beer list with many local beers on tap.... More

It was a cool day, but I chose to sit outside. They immediately brought a heater. My waiter was knowledgeable and very attentive. I had injured my wrist and asked for a bag of ice, that arrived immediately. I asked his suggestion for a non barbeque meal that I could eat with one hand and he was spot on. The... More

I had dinner at Q on Bay where we sat on the patio overlooking the water. It was a lovely setting. The salad was good and the service was okay. Good food at a good price.

This was the first place my husband and I went after moving here in July. The first place has remained our favorite and we go back religiously! Every thing we've ordered is amazing, especially the ever changing egg rolls. Our first experience was ribeye, potato, cheese and jalepeno egg rolls and a fried green tomato sandwich. I REALLY wish that... More

Casual atmosphere, friendly service, outdoor space on waterfront, good food and lots of craft beers. Pulled pork tacos were tasty and so were the beers.

I went here just for beer, but the bartender (Kya or Kye ) was sweet and gave me a sample of beer. I'm looking forward to coming back for their barbecue soon.

My wife and I ate lunch at Q on Bay. The location is ideal for any restaurant. It's downtown location sits next to a small park and overlooks the bay. The area seemed completely safe and parents didn't seem to mind allowing kids to run around in the park while the parents finished their meals. The restaurant itself looked great.... More

Delicious BBQ at this place. Loved the low country option to get shrimp on the side. Very enjoyable place. My only quibble would be that the mustard sauce is not quite up to standard. The other sauces and the pork itself were of such high quality that this mattered not in the least. Excellent place.
