2years ago. Amazing. Wednesday 9/8/21. Bad vibe. Bad service ribs were not even cooked, ate one and refused to eat more or pay. Waited so long for the check that we started to leave . Very disappointed.

Keeping in mind that there are staff shortages everywhere, this means that other workers need to step it up. Management at H of Q needs to ensure that the Greeter is not just standing there, waiting for people to come looking for tables. Instead, he/she should make sure people have their checks or drinks etc. We literally waited for 45 minutes to get our check while people were standing waiting for tables. Meantime, the greeter was doing nothing. Just a suggestion, as seen in other venues. Other than that, the food is consistently good and the waiters hustle their butts off. Drinks are good too. And the entertainment is always fun. Management just needs to do some better training so that shortages aren't such a detriment to business.

We really wanted to love this place. My husband and I are both big barbeque fans and seek it out wherever we go. Generally, it was a fine experience, not exceptional. The meat lacked flavor, which was managed with sauce and a little salt. (The wings are exceptional, by the way.) The sides were only okay as well (potato salad and collard greens.) What really ruined the experience was our server disappearing at the end of our meal. We sat for 30 minutes awaiting anyone to come by so we could grab a check. Our server checked in on tables on the way to us, but never made it as far as our table, and never glanced up to see what our status was. (I tried to catch his attention every time I saw him.) Even once we got the check, he never came back for it, and we eventually gave it to another server.

We might have given the food a second chance. The ambiance is great, as are the views. The server was charming, but incredibly inattentive once the place got a little bit busy.

I’m giving a two star to HOQ only based on location and its beautiful view of NYC, other than that our dining experience was very disappointing. First of all the staff isn’t friendly, they all looked distracted and not really into serving customers. Additionally, the meat was dry, not well seasoned and bbq sauce options are very limited. The pull pork was literally a “blob” of meat thrown on a tray. The collard green and mac and cheese are a disaster, no texture, no flavor. Definitely overpriced for the quality of food and poor presentation.

The food is bbq and very tasty. The service was very good and our waitress went out of her way to take care of our party of 8. The dueling piano players were excellent and got the crowd involved. The view across the street of the river and downtown NY was beautiful. I would strongly recommend going here if you visit Hoboken

Very busy place on July 4th. The wait for food extended 40-50 minutes after taking our orders. The food was good. Our waitress was very apologetic. Overall, I would return but on a day when it’s less busy.

House of Que is in a great location on the banks of the Hudson across from Manhattan. The food is pricey, but overall our meal tasted very good, and I would usually consider it to be a good value; however, the service for the price was well below expectation, and this seriously put a damper on the experience. For example, I was only able to order one drink the entire meal, as our waitress never came back to check on us after the food was delivered.

In sum, I usually wouldn't mind paying a higher price, as the ambiance was great and the food was good; however, the poor service made this meal a poor value.

We made reservations for brunch and it was such a great time! Our Server, Melissa was amazing and attentive , the GM Chris was able to spot our picky eater and offer some laughs. We will return and we do not need a special occasion to have a good time.

Sat outside near waterfront in covered area with picnic bench style seating. Very pleasant except for a very loud and boisterous group nearby. Unable to hear each other, outside! Politely said something, as the staff did nothing, and there appeared to be NO management onsite. Food was very good--brisket excellent, sausage good, sides excellent, especially curly fries, collard greens and fried pickles. Skip the (dry) chicken.
Good choice for a casual bbq with family and friends on a beautiful day. Don't sit under the awning with a boisterous bunch!

Went for brunch on a Sunday. Overall good experience. However we sat outside in the section to right of the restaurant and there was no music. The ambiance over there was lacking and could’ve have definitely used a speaker or something of that sort. But the food, drinks and our server (Nolan) were great!

Food was cold ...seems like it was sitting for long before it was served to us
Taste: not as good for a bbq
Appetizers and main course delivered at the same time
BBQ brisket was dry
Music too loud we cant hear ourselves talking
Bread served cold too

Dissappointed

Good food, great location, and friendly staff. Very busy when we dined, some of the food came out less than hot.

Wings were crispy and delicious. Drinks were good, a bit expensive - to be expected in this area, though.

We loved the place, location, and were very excited about the food. However, our bbq came out a little dry. The food also got cold fast. Our drink didn’t come out well so the server was kind enough to replace it. It was karaoke night so the ambiance was great! Everyone wore masks and tables were spread out.
