The food was delicious, fantastic atmosphere, wonderful service.
Great food and great Service.
Interesting new restaurant and worth a visit. Specialty drinks cost about the same as an entree, so be careful. Food and service were excellent; ambiance OK but booths behind wall do not get the full experience, especially when there's live music.
Food was good. Was not crazy about the corn side dish. The house smoked sausage was great as well as the shrimp.
Our waitress was fantastic, she gave us our space and checked in with us the right amount. It was our first time dining at the restaurant and she made excellent recommendations which we thoroughly enjoyed. We will definitely go back and believe it makes a great place for couple dinners or group dinners.
Sunday Brunch! Delicious meal, great service and good music. We will be back.
Delicious filet, it was so very tender!! Amazing. This was our second visit, can't wait to go again to try something new!!
The restaurant is beautiful, and the staff is very attentive. The Krispy Kreme bread pudding is probably the best I have tasted!! It really is a great restaurant to check out!
Amazing service and food. Good place to brunch with your girlfriends
Outstanding restaurant. The food was great and the service was outstanding. Great place. Highly recommend.
Had a wonderful meal with my wife. She had the brisket and I had the burnt ends. Delicious! Waitress was friendly and helpful.
The sides and apps are fantastic and the service was top-notch. This place is a must if you’re in downtown Spartanburg.
Great meal. Great service. Definitely worth going to
The food was amazing!! I got the brisket, brussel sprouts, and mac and cheese and it was very delicious. Our waitress was great as well she checked on us several times to make sure everything was okay.Will definetely be returning
My wife & I enjoyed our meal & overall dining experience. Excellent bar with an unexpected bourbon selection. The 4 staff with whom we interacted we're outstanding. We'll be back!
We enjoyed sitting outside and getting the platter with 4 selections. Food was wonderful; yet the flies were a nuisance. Maybe something to keep flies away from food would be nice. Really enjoyed the music! We will be back!
This was our first time eating here. We had Sunday brunch. The food was excellent, the service was outstanding, and social distancing was above the standard. We will definitely be back!
The food was amazing, bathroom clean and wait staff attentive...I give them a 10
Initial Q is my favorite new restaurant!!!
Food was very good. The dining area is open and nicely done.
Food was great. Service was great. Most all servers were following the face mask ordinance. What was disappointing is that the manager/owner did not have any type of face covering. I even jokingly said something to him and his response was to point out that “I was not wearing one either”. Hence my low rating overall.
Food was excellent but service was very slow. We had reservations when they opened for brunch. We waited an hour for our food. It was delicious and I’m glad we didn’t have an engagement to get to afterwards.
Birthday celebration. Great food. Music was nice noise level acceptable being seated outside.
Cole slaw needed more flavor, smoked green beans tasted more like picked beans. Bread was good, brisket great, pork good, chicken a little dry as was the ends of brisket. Wait staff was awesome and very accommodating.
Our first time there and we LOVED it. My husband thought the bbq was extremely good. Going back this coming weekend!!!
Amazing food and great wait staff! I would highly recommend trying this fun new spot downtown on Main St!
This was our second trip to Initial Q in two weeks, and we love it! The food is delicious, the decor is impressive, the portions generous, the cocktails interesting, and the waitstaff attentive.
Excellent service and excellent food. We all had a great time and plan to return soon
The steak here is the best around. It was cooked perfectly and so tender and juicy. We love this place!
We loved Initial Q! We ate outside, and loved hearing the street musicians. The service was very prompt and friendly. The manager came by and was great as well. Apparently two people don’t usually finish the platter we ordered! But it was that good! We had brisket, pulled pork, pulled chicken and burnt ends. The Brussel sprouts are amazing! We will definitely be back!
Food is always great . Prepared to order. Friendly faces and knowledgeable about menu. Our favorite place to dine out in Spartanburg.
We went for outside dining g fir Mother’s Day . It was our first time. The food was delicious and the service was great! Will definitely be back. Very generous portions too
Food was excellent as well as the service. Good high end bar-b-que restaurant.
Food was good, and the portions were ample. The tables were much to small to accommodate more than a few small plates. It seemed that design superseded functionality.
Great everything except the acoustics. Very noisy.
This place is a great addition to the Spartanburg downtown. Food is great and the servers are knowledgeable and friendly. The smoked beef brisket was some of the best I’ve had.
The food was amazing. Best BBQ we have had in a very long time! The service was great. It was their opening weekend so it was busy but they managed to handle the crowd.
The wait staff was super friendly and very knowledgeable. The food and drinks were delicious and the atmosphere was casual and cool.
We went for Valentine's Day and had a great time and food was excellent!
