We were a little disappointed, the ribs were very dry and tough. We all expected fall off the bone ribs. The wing appetizer was good. Next time we will try a different menu item. The ribs were a little pricy for what you got.

Good location in down town Beaufort South Carolina. Parking can some times be a problem not if you go before 6 PM. The food and service is decent and the pricing offer good value.

This is an excellent restaurant right along Bay Street and has very nice outdoor seating. I am from Texas and never tried South Carolina Mustard sauce but it is excellent. I had the pulled pork sandwhich and the collard greens. The greens were out of this world...just as the pulled pork was. I was a tourist for the day and... More

We ate lunch today at Q's. I wouldn't eat there again if in the area. My husband ordered a brisket sandwich. It had maybe two slices of brisket on it and he said our neighbor bbq's a better piece of meat. The tea was very weak and looked more like water. The view was nice though from the seating area.

Staff was a bit green about the menu and beer choices. The food was very good and a nice large portion. The deck was a nice spot to sit in the breeze and watch the water.

Brisket dip was excellent. Wings were average. Fries were good. Service was below average. Waitress went AWOL after food was given until the end when it was time for check. Place just open so it wasn't busy

My husband had the wings that he says were the very best he has EVER had. They are lightly smoked first then cooked. I had the grilled local shrimp what were really tasty. Nice atmosphere. Would go back again, and again!

We enjoyed excellent bbq and sides at this restaurant. It was a nice casual experience with real down home food. Service is fast and food is good. Sit indoors or on the outdoor patio. Peach cobbler was special.

Loved the shrimp and craft beers so much at this restaurant that we had to make a return visit the next day. The friendly staff and water view along with the delicious food made this one of our favorite casual eating spots in Beaufort!
