The food was delicious the atmosphere was great they put on the heaters when I ask them to it was a little cool on the patio
The sever was ok. Would have like some more interaction
Good was cold. Onion strings didn’t have flavor to them. I liked the ambience and our server was great.
Each time we dine at Gus's...its always a pleasurable experience. ...and the cornbread...AMAZING
Best service I have ever had their. Drew was amazing. He was attentive and kept our drinks full. We thoroughly enjoyed his jokes and humor excellent server he should be commended for having a great positive attitude. Ribs were off the chart thank you for a great evening
Love Gus’s and love downtown Claremont. Excellent food, excellent venue and thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor dining. Hostess, waiters and waitresses were super friendly and helpful.
Great menu, friendly servers, nice atmosphere, good value.
Took my out of state guess out to eat and I was so disappointed in the service. It took us 20 minutes just to get a glass of water. When I asked our waitress if they were short staffed giving her the benefit of the doubt as I know we are all short staffed during a pandemic. she said oh no Plenty of staff. I’m just having an off day and a rough night last night…Great food disappointing service.
We had an awesome dinner on the patio for our 22nd wedding anniversary! The service was awesome!!
Amazing cornbread! Recommend this place highly for couples looking to have a relaxed dinner with excellent food.
Atmosphere inside was quite nice. Service was very good. The food was ok, tasty but I have had better BBQ. The baked beans were undercooked and hard. My dish was barely warm and just about cold. Appetizers (pulled pork nachos and jalapeño cornbread) were great!
Service was horrible, starting from the hostess to the server.
Food was good though
Great service and the food is really good. Always a great experience whenever we come here.
Great food, drinks and service!
Went to celebrate our daughter's birthday. Food was delicious. service was ok but felt like waiter was rushing us. Even though I indicated a birthday celebration when I initially made the reservation and AGAIN when we were seated, waiter brought the check before he offered dessert. He did finally come through after I called it to his attention.
My friends and I had a great time at Gus's BBQ. We enjoyed our luncheon with plenty of leftovers to take home. The waitress was outstanding. We would definitely comeback.
Surprising find, will have to try again after Covid. Tasty entrees ~ knowledgeable servers
We are never disappointed at Gus's. The food is delicious and the service is good.
Went to Gus for an early and there wasn’t a lot of people. I was seated right away and our server was TJ. He had a nice smile under his mask. He was polite, friendly and attentive. He made sure we were okay but not hovering. We had the blueberry mint lemonade, cucumber jalepeno margarita ; both drinks were good. For appetizers fried pickles (only avail at happy hour on patio) and deviled eggs. Always good. We both selected shrimp and grits. They were tasty with this extra gravy. I would’ve liked a few more shrimp (next time I will ) and more okra . Would come back soon and ask for TJ
Excellent waitress and food!
I was a little peeved that we were asked to give up our booth seating because we were a party of only two, just to see another party of two seated in the exact same booth within five minutes. That said, the service was prompt and courteous, and the bbq was actually better than the last time we ate here pre-Covid.
I recommend Gus's for folks wanting some tasty bbq, and I am hopeful that the re-seating faux pas on Gus's part was an anomaly.
I met five friends for lunch and some of my group arrived early and were accommodated. The server was gracious and helpful and gave us all of special requests (and I'd like the aioli on the side... Can you take a picture of us...)
It was cool inside and there were quite a few folks on the deck that didn't appear to be uncomfortable. Music was playing in the background but we still carried on conversations. We loved the food - several people had the sliders; one had the brisket sandwich with a fantastic potato salad as a side. I had the smoked salmon salad which was on a kale base. The dressing was light with a smoked flavor - very good.
Overall, great restaurant with a wide selection of tasty foods, and wonderful service. We will be back more often now that the pandemic is letting up (is that even an expression?).
The place was located in a nice area of Claremont. Parking was free and available. The service was excellent. The food was amazing. The ribs were tender, pork had great flavor as well as the brisket. I definitely enjoyed my meal.
Fantastic food- friendly staff clean modern surroundings
Late night dinner option. Food is good and portion size is great, I could if done with the short ribs nachos appetizer as my meal
Great food. Great ambiance. One of the best places to eat in the county.
Fun evening eating outside delicious BBQ and lemonade.
Food overall was poor quality. The food seemed to be off and many of us got sick. Our family would not eat there again.
The ribs, fries and macaroni were dry, all the sauces tasted like vinegar and the greens were just soaking in vinegar.
Great food and service!
Great service, great atmosphere and great food! loved it!
The food was amazing and our server was so patient with our huge group of 14 people. The ambiance at Gus' is always so uplifting. The staff is super friendly and everyone is very helpful.
Unfortunately the past couple of times that we had dined at Gus BBQ was not good. We decided to give it one last and final try last night and are we glad that we did! It was so good, the service was excellent, and the best meal I have ever had a Gus BBQ. We really enjoyed our time and will definitely be going back
Father’s Day dinner was great, food, bartenders and drinks were excellent. Just wish that our waitress was a bit more attentive. We didn’t receive condiments, utensils or napkins. Had to ask a bus boy for help
Good was great. Our server Sierra was okay. I’ve heard so much about the amazing customer service, so I’m sure having a different server would’ve met my expectations.
Our first visit to Gus's Barbeque - Claremont was outstanding! We were taken care of from the time we checked in to our order and to the time we left the restaurant. Food, customer service and ambiance was excellent! My husband and I were customers of the South Pasadena location years back and were happy to see we had a new location close to us. We will definitely be back!
