This is a great barbecue joint! The atmosphere is wonderfully casual and the meat is delicious. I ordered a two meat platter with baby back ribs and beef brisket. The smoke ring was visible and the meat was appropriately tender, succulent and delicious. The amount served was extremely generous and the price was reasonable. I would recommend this place to...

We have enjoyed Smokey Oaks many times at their James Island locale- fun, happening bar, best onion rings ever, and the BBQ is over the top tasty! We recently had them cater a huge birthday event on Folly Beach, and they were equally as excellent in everyway. Throughout the event, I was approached by all the guests who raved about... More

Ridiculously good BBQ and tons of craft beers on tap, recommended by a local fishing boat captain and definitely did not disappoint.

We kept hearing how great this place was for BBQ, so we decided to give it a try for lunch. Atmosphere is worn-down sports bar in need of a good thorough scrub down and freshening. We ordered two sandwiches with sides: pulled pork and brisket. The pork was tender but smoke flavor was very pronounced, and it was served on... More

This place is on your way out to the beach. Stop in for the BBQ, or just for some beers. The War Pig Tacos are like meat candy

Food served cold, server ignored us for a while when we were first seated. We're giving up on this place after 6 years, just too many bad experiences.

I have been a frequent customer at this restaurant and always felt that they had excellent food. However, I went there for lunch today with my grandson's and the food was terrible. I have always been a big fan of their vegetable plate. Today my green beans were mediocre at best; the baked beans looked pork and beans poured from... More

We ordered the pulled pork BBQ platter and the beef brisket BBQ platter. Both were very good. Ordered as sides the fried okra, the rice, the collards, and the fries. All sides were great as well. Definitely get your BBQ from this restaurant.
