Be prepared for some great eats and wholly delicious craft beers. The bartender absolutely knows his offerings and suggests perfect matchings. Try the Albacore or Brisket burger...you won't be disappointed...oh yeah...add sweet potato fries and fuggetaboutit.

Beachwood BBQ is my favorite place to eat in Seal Beach. The Brisket and Sweet potatoe fries are heavenly. The have a very unique menu, a wall of many tapped micro beers to choose from (even samples if you ask) and the atmosphere is simple but welcoming. Don't forget to try the different flavors of sauces - for complete satisfaction. Expect to wait if you don't arrive before 5pm... Although, the wait is definitely worth it.

VERY good BBQ place but it's packed after 6, so get there early and enjoy the Happy Hour too. Fried pickles, duck tater tots with truffle oil and the nachos are our favs.

Great little place in Seal Beach. Best BBQ I had ever had and I am from Kentucky! The cornbread is sooo good and the coleslaw was tasty as well. My fiance got one of the coffee flavored beers and we both agreed that it was the best beer we had ever tasted!

With a BBQ resume that includes living/visiting Texas, N Carolina, Kansas City, Upstate NY, Florida, and others, I was a bit leery of Southern California as a source for outstanding BBQ. I ended up impressed, full, amazed, and very satisfied. We arrived at the small storefront restaurant to a small wait (25 min estimate) which was accurate. Up front, notice they were already out of baby back ribs and the brisket (8p on Thursday eve). Beer menu selection was AMAZING. (Disappointed that I just missed a chance to try the almost mythical Pliny the Elder, but ran dry before we arrived).
Ordered short beef ribs and pulled pork. They serve it dry style, after slow cook and dry rub. Both were absolutely terrific. The short ribs really did melt in your mouth, great taste and large serving. Pulled pork was also amazingly good, terrific spice balance, very tender, moist. The menu encourages to try without sauce, but they do have 4 sauces on table. Spicy, sweet, mustard, and vinegar. I tried tastes of the vinegar & mustard sauces, both were excellent.
Atmosphere was that of a non-descript storefront bar restaurant. Turns out to be a classic hidden gem experience, a MUST TRY recommendation to any friends and family. Beer selections were numerous, highly attentive server very helpful ( ensured one of us, having ordered a Flemish Red, was aware it was a 'sour' style.... Being truly helpful, no beer snobbery issues). Sides were numerous and generous, sweet potato fries, blue cheese grits, sweet cole slaw all also very very good. Cornbread slice comes w the meal plates, also very good ( with cranberries).
Total dining experience was outstanding, food outstanding. Great!
