“Tough day”
Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

After 2.good ventures to Q this one was a disaster. Obviously a new NDA poorly trained server who ended up leaving in the middle of our service.
Food was good but took 2 hours for lunch

“Fabulous food, beautiful view outdoors, great ambience in!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This was our second visit to Q on Bay. We returned to Beaufort with specific plans to dine here again. They offer much more than barbecue! Outstanding fresh food and warm, friendly southern hospitality. Highly recommend!

“Mixed results leads to poor rating”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Unfortunately the minuses outweighed the pluses in our stop here for lunch on a March afternoon.The barbecue meals and sides were quite tasty but much on the cool side. The waitress was most friendly but rather clueless as how to provide decent service. Also, the glass table that we were steered to in the porch enclosure was filthy.

“Ribs are Great-Homemade Coconut Layer Cake with pecans was excellent”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Stopped in Beaufort on our way back from Hunting Island. Arriving through the front entrance the decor looked sparse, therefore we asked to be seated on the outdoor patio. The patio offers a beautiful waterfront view along with heaters for the slightly cool evening. We ordered Ribs which were excellent. For dessert homemade peach cobbler which was ok, but the homemade Coconut layer cake with pecans was so good we took an extra order to go.

“Not the best barbecue”
Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

This might get a better score if they did not claim to be a barbecue restaurant. I ordered the half rack, which was listed on the menu as " the meat falls off the bone". I could not even pull it away from the bone. And they charged me $9 for their house margarita. And it tasted like it had orange juice in it. In all fairness, my wife had a pulled pork wrap and she liked it. All of our sides, the mac and cheese, the baked beans, and the green beans(yum) were excellent. But if the ribs in a BBQ place are not good, I cannot rate them highly. Sorry. I may try them sometime for a hamburger. Service and the view of the water were excellent
