Absolutely loved the ambience....the piano karaoke was awesome...food was excellent...although my chicken was slightly smaller than usual...my boyfriend is a country boy from out of town and was extremely satisfied with his meal. Two thumbs up definitely.

Our sides did not arrive until our meats were almost finished. They attributed the mix up to the kitchen but no compensation was given for the bad service.

Long community picnic tables mixed with booths made House of Que feel very cozy for a large space. Service is casual and laid back, great place for family with kids or big group. Food was amazing, so many options to pick from and from sharing plates with everyone I thought everything was good

I made a reservation for 8 pm and when I got there it was closed. I tried calling three times and no one answered which then prevented me from making another reservation at a different restaurant. Very upsetting as this was my birthday dinner. There was nothing on the website about the restaurant being closed. If they are going to be closed they should not allow people to make a reservation.

Really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, but the music was just a bit too loud for an 8 pm seating. If you enjoy tour BBQ with dueling piano's, this is the place.

Came in an hour before dueling pianos. Had a good meal of pulled pork, frito pie, and beer, then stuck around a bit for the show. They are so good and so much fun! Quite noisy, not a good place to have a conversation but a lot of fun.

Made a reservation for 8 for lunch. No one told us it was Family Fun time. 8 adults seated in middle of kiddie birthday party. Super loud. Almost lost it when Elmo made an appearance. There was no where else to seat us when we asked to move out of kiddieland. Food just OK, but server was very nice and responsive and apologetic for kid birthday chaos. Would not go back.

Que was just...OK. I've had much better barbeque (heck, I've MADE much better barbeque), but it was fine for what it was. Happy-hour drinks were cheap and cold if a bit weak. Sitting outside with a view of the water made it worth the trip, but I wouldn't make a special effort to go back.

For the first time in my dozen visits, the ribs were overdone. Crispy and dry.
The pulled pork was outstanding, and the brisket was cooked perfectly.
I'll be back for sure.

I was really excited to try this place and was really underwhelmed. Maybe it was just the food we got. We got brisket and smoked chicken as mains. The brisket was nothing special but the chicken was delicious. It just shouldn't be the star of a bbq place. For sides, we got cole slaw, potato salad and curly fries and they weren't good without the exception of curly fries which are difficult to ruin. They also had this awful live act happening. I love live music but this band was awful. If you want to check it out, make sure Dueling Pianos isn't playing unless you want seagulls shrieking while you eat.

We live in same building as House of Que and have been there many times. Consistently very good food. Good change of menu to include more items such as the nachos and the chicken fingers. The live entertainment is great. Of special note - Jessica Rose was fantastic - very talented, great personality - performed variety of songs and was really entertaining! We all loved her - and the food was fun too. The waitress was a bit frazzled - seems like it was very crowded and she did her best but why have guys standing around just clearing tables when they could take drink orders to help out? Only other suggestion we have is to get some decent wine glasses. Drinking wine from a plastic cup or a mason jar is just gross.

Ambience
Hometown, country, & rustic BBQ joint. There is a variety of seating booths, bench with picnic and high tables.

Food
We had -beef brisket which was tender, moist & delicious
- BBQ wings sweet and surprising spicy sauce - Hamburger, we requested medium well. However is was dry cooked to a crisp

Service
Extremely disappointing. We were greeted with an attitude. We were unnecessarily lied to about a table we requested to sit at. The manager Dino and hostess Estefania stated a customer specifically reserved a window seat we requested. Turns out that was a lie, as I asked the customer. He then backpedaled and stated “customers that make reservations 2 weeks in advance gets preferential seating; we made our reservations ~2 hours before arriving. When I asked him why he lied to us. He stated he does not want to be interrogated. We were given 50% off our bill. However my mother’s day was already ruined. Discounts don’t make up for poor service.

PROs: Great food with big servings. I love the cornbread and the slaw. Very laidback atmosphere.

CON: little bit slow on the service. Our server took our orders, served it and we never saw her again until we had to go up to the counter to ask for our check (that is, after flagging her for several times).

Our waitress was very friendly and so was the rest of the staff with the exception of the hostess. The hostess was not only unfriendly, she also did not acknowledge my reservation in the system. While still at dinner I received an email from OpenTable inquiring about my no show. I spoke with the Manager who was very apologetic and he rectified the mistake but it will be a while before I would go back to House of Que given the hostess incompetence and demeanor.
