They are noted for barbecue and do not disappoint. We each had a two meat platter with 2 sides. We both had smoked pork belly which is absolutely outstanding and I chose beef brisket while my wife had pulled pork, both above average. As sides...We both smoked Brussels sprouts and my wife had Mac’n’cheese while I had a corn pudding. We were somewhat disappointed with the sprouts as they were a little cold and dry but thoroughly enjoyed the other sides. We each ordered a bottle of wine as I prefer Cabernet Sauvignon but my wife cannot tolerate red wines so ordered Chardonnay. South Carolina allows you to take home a partly finished bottle. There wine prices are very reasonable and they have a extensive collection of bourbons as well as many craft beers.More

Found this place last year on our trip through town on the ‘annual commute’ from Montreal to Lauderdale by the Sea. Bought the t-shirt! Wore them proudly this year on our return visit! This is BBQ at its purest! Meat & smoke makes a wonderful...combination. Flavourful, moist, honest! The pickles & pickled onions are a perfect foil to the rich meat. Sauces on the side for all tastes (I liked the sweet red). Great service. It’s the basics, but done extremely well, so that it becomes something very special!More

I was alone so I sat at the bar. Megan D. Was my server. I have been to other Swig and Swines in the area (Summerville) so I knew the food would be good. I never got the ribs before. I ordered the 1/2 rack...with 2 sides. They were the best ribs I've EVER had. Cooked to perfection. The service was great. The place was very busy! Megan was professional, very friendly and knowledgeable! 5stars are not to be given easily. But this place , the food and the service were all top notch! I was greeted quickly and was able to order within a few minutes. I used the restroom which was also very clean and stocked with soap and towels. I would definitely come back to this BBQ restaurant 😋 ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️More

We love the food here, but the service really takes this place over the top. Last time we were there, our server Keith took such good care of us. He was quick, fun, friendly and had great recommendations of menu items we should try. I...hope we get him next time we are there!More

The food was extraordinary; but when you are lucky enough to get a waitress like Belinda it is twice as wonderful! She is HILARIOUS and quick to make sure your beer is always full! My husband had the ribs; I had the pulled pork sandwich-...desserts were outstanding. Thank you from your visitors from up North- hey u guys- open a place in Bethany Beach Del & show them what real bbq should taste like!!!More

Visiting Charleston and wanted to try a local BBQ place. Looked up places to eat on Trip Advisor and this gem appeared. The service was impeccable. Server was super attentive. He knew the menu and was a great help. The collard greens were flavorful and...cooked yo perfection. The ribs were so tender and flavorful as was the homemade sausage. My only complaint was that the corn pudding was cold. It was so unique and quite flavorful. The cheese was a welcome surprise and took the flavor of the corn pudding up the next level. Loved the different bbq sauces. The BEST part was their peanut butter pie you absolutely MUST try it. Best peanut butter pie I’ve ever had!!!!! Excellent experience. The reason for the four not five stars was the cold corn pudding.More

This is the best BBQ I have had in awhile. The big nasty sandwich was delicious. The potato salad, beans, and Cole slaw were all delicious. The Mac & cheese was decent.

I can’t imagine eating anything that’s tastes better than the spicy chicken sandwich I had today. IT WAS INCREDIBLE. The chicken wings with the dry rub were also amazing! I don’t normally leave reviews, but this place was exceptional!! Would definitely recommend everyone to try...it!!More
