“Very disappointing”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

This place could turn you off barbecue. They have three sauces on the table but not a one of them had any heat. You know good barbecue when the meat is good all by its self. Well this had no flavor. However the collard greens were awesome. We ordered one of their speciality vodka drinks. It was so sweet we could not drink it so when one of the staff, not our waitress came to bring us water we ask for two shots of the same type of vodka that was in the drink. Five+ minutes later our waitress comes back "I meant to come over and tell you we ran out that vodka when we made your drinks". We finally got a different vodka. My husband had ordered a bowl of Brunswick Stew and ask for it before our main entree. So imagine our surprise when someone other then our waitress delivered our dinner and brunswick stew had yet to arrive. Once again 5+ minutes later our waitress shows up "I meant to come by and tell you we ran out of brunswick stew". This place was not busy at all. Bad food and terrible service. Q on the Bay has a great location. You can sit outside looking out over the river. But its a place to avoid.

“keep hoping it will get better”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Another visit to Q, another disappointment. Mostly mediocre whether it is the food or the service. But, there is a nice selection of draft beers! Had to ask 3 times and 2 different people just to get some flatware AFTER our dinners had been delivered. Went with grand kids this trip and the service is just TOO SLOW for little ones.

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

Really nice take on traditional southern comfort foods. Especially enjoyed BBQ, Mac and Cheese, and Pecan Pie was a really good variant, very moist and a more pronounced (but good) brown sugar flavor.

“Good BBQ, Pleasant Staff”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Ate here outside on a chilly night as we had our Lab with us and they allowed her. It was quite nippy, but the manager found a propane tank and lit a heater for us. The waitress was professional and quite pleasant. We didn't have a heavy meal, but the brisket items we ordered were tender & tasty. The rice with hash side was unusual and very good. Overall an excellent experience.

“Wonderful Views,”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

The view out on the deck is wonderful! Enjoyed some cocktails and tried the BBQ. I found the BBQ a bit to smokey but some like it like that. Friendly staff. Decent prices.
