Consistently good food. The catfish and brisket are excellent and this is our favorite spot for fried green tomatoes ... best we have had anywhere. Service was OUTSTANDING. Atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed with nice decor. This is one of our regular "go to" places for casual dining.

Using entering, we were pleasantly welcomed and shown to our reserved table. The service was very friendly, but I would have thought for such a quiet night, the server would have been more attentive and offered drink refills, but not so much. The food was delicious and appropriately priced.

We always enjoy the meals at Roadhouse. We have tried a variety of their offerings and have never been disappointed. The service is always thoughtful, never overbearing. We love the simplicity of the decor and even enjoy the choices of background music. Highly recommend.

We are from Kansas City and we believe it is the BBQ highest standard, but I have never had brisket as good as at the Roadhouse in Beaufort. Can’t wait to take my out of town guests there! Very nice attractive environment. Was a perfect evening.

Great food and top-notch service! My husband and I both got the brisket, and he ordered pulled pork also. BBQ was well-prepared and it was fun trying all the different sauces too.

I had the fried green beans as a side, and would definitely get them again. My husband raved about the baked beans. They had lots of bacon and pork in them.

Don’t let the road house name fool you; the interior is very nice and noise level was fine. It’s a big place and it looked like it would be perfect for larger groups.

This is a restaurant that I keep coming back to. Excellent food and service. Dinner only. I asked once if they were open for lunch. Answer: "Of course not! BBQ takes hours to properly cook. How could we be open for lunch?". It's the real deal. I like that you can make online reservations. There are specials, and one is prime rib. It's the best around! Another "best" is their baked beans side. Awesome (but spicy). Easy free parking.

Outstanding barbecue in an upscale restaurant. The food was delicious hot and very well presented. My favorite was the beef brisket which was well smoked, tender and very flavorful. Waiter was extremely attentive and friendly. The only issue was the location can be a bit hard to find.

Food has deteriorated since we were last there perhaps six months ago. The ribs just weren’t that good — fatty and the rub had little taste. Too bad. We used to love the ribs. No more.

This is second time there . The burnt ends we’re horrible like no juice and very dry .
The prime rib was chewy not tender at all . ( second time this meal and it was identical to last time ) gross
Took dessert home the chocolate lava cake hadn’t been heated however was thrown on top of whipped cream. In the trash it went .
Our server was very nice .
I had shrimp and grits very tasty for the money not a large portion at all !!

The brisket is very good. Customer service is great. My friends steak was undercooked but she ate a portion of it, intending to take it home a reheat. The waitress insisted on bringing her a new steak, which was perfectly cooked. I hope they open the patio in the fall. It would be awesome if they'd have a band outside by the fire pit.

Arrival and parking a little weird off main road on grass back of lot. Entry inside a bit barren, but dining room well proportioned, quiet, attractive. Host appeared confused as I mentioned being 15 minutes early even with room virtually empty. Seated in 4 person booth. Waitress seemed nice, shy, untrained, nervous. Menu broad, well described servings, interesting. Drinks slow, but good, large. Food arrived slowly but well prepared, correct, delicious. More than most can eat in one sitting. Take home boxes needed. Desserts nicely dine. Overall: 7 of 10. Return: maybe, if ribs & brisket desired.

Great up and coming restaurant. Tastefully appointed interior decor. Great food, attentive staff. We were there as soon as they opened that day so I can’t really attest to the noise level when it is fully packed but the bar seemed very nice and the tables were spaced out. It would be a great place to meet after work for a meal or just a few drinks

First time at this restaurant and we were so impressed with the meal that we had! Probably the best baby back ribs that we have had since moving to South Carolina! They were done to perfection and juicy…..not dried out! Barbecue sauce was amazing. We ordered the burnt end Mac and cheese and it did not disappoint! Veggies were crisp and delicious! Will definitely return with many friends! The portion size of ribs was overwhelming and had plenty to take home. The only issue that was a little bothersome was the tops of the tables were extremely sticky even though they were cleaned before we sat down! Other than that slight bump, will definitely return!

I always enjoy the look of this restaurant both inside and out, and where it is situated. It smells so good when you walk inside. A hint of smokiness in the air. The pulled pork sandwich is my favorite with a side of mac and cheese. The KC barbecue sauce complements the pork so well. The develish eggs were okay, but they had a slight vinegary taste to me. I also thought “develish” meant that they were hot from the jalapeños, but I could not detect any heat. The bed of coleslaw beneath the eggs was the best part of this dish. But that’s just my taste. Don’t let that sway you from trying them. My wife very much enjoyed a nice hearty bowl of shrimp and grits! The server was very nice and the price was reasonable for 4 people. We’ll be back! This is southern bbq at its best.

Great BBQ. The wings, burnt ends, ribs, sliders were all fabulous! The sides are super as well! Great drinks and service. Our wait person was personable and provided great attention to our table. The owner/manager was very welcoming, warm and friendly. The facility itself is a bit dark inside, but OK. I was relieved to see how reasonable the prices were as restaurant prices have gone through the roof!! An overall GOOD EXPERIENCE and 5 Star evening~

This was the worst food ever!
We ordered the burnt end pieces they were left over brisket cut in one inch cubes with sauce and sesame seeds.
The chicken wings we ordered were a doz. spicy Asian wings what we got was 10 teriyaki wings
The loaded potato salad was German potato salad the server explained the salad is made with bacon bits and chives!
Nothing was served hot!!
Advertised as the best ribs in Beaufort what a joke
