Great tasting food , nice local place to go get something to eat , and the drinks was on the money, also had nice patient waitresses, I would go there again, and you get your money's worth for what you are paying for.

Not everything on menu available. I asked for the shrimp and grits and was told not available due to the fact that the chef did not have the recipe. However, you could get a side of grits or shrimp on the menu.
BBQ chicken was not as good as it used to be and the brisket was dry. Was hoping for better.

Sat down at 630 PM and ordered almost right away. After an hour and fifteen minutes of waiting the only thing to arrive were funny tasting waters, a totally flat soda, and one salad with soggy croutons. The tables next to us who had been sitting for longer than us finally got their food which was described as being inedible, reasons ranging from being burned and the meat being so tough it couldn’t even be cut. At this point we decided to leave, the acting manager tried to make things better but alas there was no way to fix this. Maybe it was a bad day for them but I would not recommend SuzyQue’s to anyone and will not be back.

It was Mother's day, I took my Aunt and Mother and it was not very pleasant. There was no option for menu items, we had to eat overpriced cold buffet food. Some of the food was decent but overall a terrible deal I was very disappointed. I should have went to Deltas as I originally planned.

Waited for hostess about 15mins, then waited at least another 15mins before a waiter took our drink order, then when that didn't come my husband caught the attention of a bus boy, only to be yelled at, "ASK YOUR WAITER!".

Last straw....we left.

We had a blast at Suzy Que's. Our waitress was nice and friendly. The food was excellent and it arrived at our table pretty fast. We went on a Friday night and the live band was awesome. We even had a friend from our group, party of 8 to sing along with them. Overall. I would recommend that you go and dine there. You won't be sorry. Good good and drinks with a warm and friendly atmosphere.

We love this place... a good local BBQ spot... the only problem is that the food is so good, that we always overeat! :)
This place definitely rivals Dinosaur BBQ and I love that it's just a town over!

Suzy's sell groupons for two meals and it is a very good deal
I have used them before and recent purchased 3 more
Tonight I was informed by the manager that the Groupon was no longer valid if you sat in the room where the live music was being performed. There was no such rule listed on the Groupon site for this new policy. I politely explained to the manager that we had come specifically to hear this band and now with this new policy we would be spending far less money. He shrugged and said I'm sorry it's the new policy
I will return to hear the band but will most likely eat dinner somewhere else and my check at suzys will most likely be under $5. If you are running a business to lose money, then they are winning!

Food was great and band (RPM) was fantastic given the small space by the bar. Despite the small space for the band, I can appreciate the bar-and-band feel.

Hostess had no record of this reservation set up through this website, but we thankfully found seats at the bar anyway.

Bar tender was very hospitable, but over charged us on our bill, forgetting that we had paid cash for half of our drinks.

Overall, great food, great ambiance, great service.

This was our second time at Suzyque's and certainly our last. Upon arriving we were ignored by a number of waitstaff until my fiancee approached a waitress standing nearby to ask if we could be seated. After we were taken to our table we waited for over 15 minutes before our server came by. We asked other servers walking through the area if we could order and were told that they were not our server. My fiancee decided he would place our order (for drinks and food) at the bar. He came back with drinks but said they wouldn't allow him to place our dinner order. Another 10-15 passed passed before our waitress came by. We ordered our food and waited, and waited, and waited. There were three servers working the small area of the dining room where we were seated which consisted of approximately 15 tables so it was unclear why the service was so poor. About 45 minutes after ordering food, at this point we'd been seated for well over an hour, my fiancee called it and went to find our waitress, whom we hadn't seen since she took our order, to let her know to cancel it and that we were leaving. He wasn't able to find her so asked another waiter, who also was unsure of her whereabouts, to relay the message. Never have we witnessed such inept and poor service. At the very least it would have been nice for the waitress to come by to acknowledge the long wait so we at least knew that we hadn't been forgotten about. This experience however is consistent with our first visit where after being seated we waited 10-15 with no one coming by to take a drink order. Upon getting up to leave we were stopped by the owner who happened to be sitting at the table behind us. She was very kind and apologetic and begged us to stay comping our meal which was very generous. After giving the staff a stern talking to she emerged from the back with our waitress. It was only because of the owner's intervention that we decided to give it another chance. Disappointing, will not return.

I made reservation and seated , no problem. I sat for over thirty minutes before I went to find someone to even approach my table. I was told three times someone would be over in a minute. We did atleast finally get our drink order. After 1 hour and 20 minutes not counting the 30 minutes I mentioned our food was finally was sent out. Was definitely not worth the wait.

We went to see a local band play. That said, it was loud by intent. The band, Just Jammin was very good. I do not know when or how often they play there.
Food was good, we shared the BBQ sampler, but for me a little overcooked and dried. Didn't appreciate the sauces. The BBQ beef "egg roll" was excellent
For this type of place and location the prices were steep.

We really went to see the amazing music-they have a big band of extraordinarily talented Broadway musicians there every other Monday night .
Unfortunately they were very shorthanded in the kitchen and did not do particularly well communicating that. It's a lot easier to be understanding when the staff is straightforward and tells you in advance that there's a problem. Buy me a round of drinks and I'm a happy camper for as long as it takes, LOL
The food was good but took a very long time to come out.
I'll definitely be back because the music is so good that it compensates for everything else!

Food was excellent, the day we went they also had a live jazz band which was great. Made it a little difficult to talk across the table but to be expected with live music. The service was ok, our waitress was a little slow and at times seemed a little overwhelmed. But the food, OMG. Great portion size, even for a big guy like myself I had to take some home. The food was awesome, I'm not a huge BBQ fan but I am a fan of their food. I will go back.

Although, I was aware of the live entertainment and made a reservation they did not inquire if I wanted to be seated in the area where the entertainment was located. Could not even see the band. Fairly chilly. Server was not frequent enough throughout our meal. Food came out room temperature. Sauces were delicious.
