    Sad that there were only 2 other parties dining so it felt really empty. Could use some TLC on the entrance exterior: weeds rmerging from the bricks, rotted posts, peeling paint, unmown grass, etc. The food is delicious but these issues may be a turnoff for people and they will miss a great meal.

    Great service and food is outstanding. Too bad they are in an out of way location. My only critique is the beef brisket on the sandwich was a little overdone. My friends beef brisket and pulled pork was outstanding

    The food, portions, appetizers were amazing. Way too much food!! No cooking for me today!!! Service staff were attentive but not overly so. It was a bit warm (A/C?) but otherwise and excellent alternative to franchise dining for a VERY reasonable price. Definitely going again!!

    The best BBQ I’ve had in a very long time. This place should be packed. The food was excellently prepared and the drinks were great. Had a hard making a choice on what to order. It all looked so good.

    We ate here for the first and last time on our first date night in 4 years!! We waited at hostess stand for several minutes while 3 servers played visibly on their cell phones. Our waiter greeted us about 10 minutes after sitting and smelled so bad that it was difficult to breathe. We first had a huge serving of wings that were not smoked by the way. Then we both ordered ribs, I had St. Louis cut and they had trimmed so much meat off there was only what was between bones to eat. My husband ordered the baby back ribs, he said that they had tasted funny and offered me a bite. They were rancid!!! Nothing here is actually cooked on a smoker, it is all liquid smoke. The Cole slaw is not a cider slaw but full mayonnaise. Decor was sad, tables and floors sticky The only good thing was the soda and sweet potato fries that were actually hot. Will not recommend unless you need a colon cleanse and will not return

    Baby back ribs were very tough and the corn muffin was probably baked a week ago! When we told the waitress that we had been there twice before and the ribs were great and these were not cooked properly, she basically said “oh, I’m so sorry. I will tell the chef! When she returned, she said that the chef told her there may have been something wrong with the wood chips! The restaurant did not offer anything to compensate for the poorly cooked dinner. It was over $70 for two and they didn’t even have the decency to offer us a drink or dessert! Probably will not be going back there! The front of the restaurant is appalling with mold and mildew and looks like it has been untouched for years! Clean up your act! There are more attractive restaurants in the area who care about customer satisfaction! Very disappointing.

    Our server had to be reminded several times to bring things like additional drinks,ice, etc. Sadly, the server smelled so horribly of body odor that every time he came to the table we all turned our heads. Terrible.

    To be a Barbecue restaurant, the brisket and smoked chicken were terrible. “Special” Mac and cheese was watery and cheese less. I was very unimpressed by anything about this restaurant.

    We had the prime rib. The chef made sure it was cooked to a fabulous medium rare. It was delicious but kind of bulky. The wine selection is quite nice (by the glass only) I believe . We enjoyed our supper!

    We have lived in Beaufort for 4 years after my husband's military career which had us living in Europe for 6 years. This is absolutely our favorite Beaufort, SC restaurant for a fine dining experience in a relaxed atmosphere. Yes, the restaurant name can be a bit misleading. They also serve a great ribeye, grilled salmon and sometimes prime rib. The wines are good, the mixed drinks are excellent. The restaurant is a hidden gem. I usually eat the in house made smoked brisket, pulled pork or pulled chicken. Many other Beaufort restaurants are overpriced, over rated, too loud, or kind of hectic. Anytime we go there with local friends our out of town guests we all have a great night. I do suggest a reservation which can easily be done online thru "Open Table."

    Visiting from Out of Town and was taken to Roadhouse Ribs - LOVED it!!! The Manager was so helpful and our server was happy, attentive, and personable. I'm a picky eater and everything served was a thumbs up. The green fried tomatoes with Pimento cheese were really delicious and all their seafood was very fresh. Upscale casual atmosphere with really good food!!!!

    Very enjoyable dinner. I had the baby back ribs and my husband had the prime rib dinner. Both meals were very good. Our waitress was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. We got there during a slow spell because there weren't too many people there. This was nice because it was the makings for a quieter meal, which I enjoyed because it made it easier for my husband and I to talk to each other.
