In my humble opinion, The Q offers the best "non-traditional" fish and chips in Fort Bragg. The fish is blackened as opposed to deep fried and the fries are hand cut. They also have wonderful BBQ, including oysters. We've tried most everything on the menu,...More

We have been seeing this place for years and finally decided to try it. Very expensive and the food is not very good. I would never go back. The server seemed annoyed to be there. Bad experience

... this was not anything special at all. I ordered a half pound of the pulled pork to go, plus a *side* of corn bread. I thought the price she charged was noticeably higher than the menu, but there was a noisy family right behind...More

I've eaten here several times and I'm not sure if it's them or me. I don't eat meat very often, though the past couple times I have eaten here, I feel sick to my stomach afterward. The last time was after a burger and fries,...More
