We arrived close to 9 pm on a Tuesday evening. There were a few people watching TV in the bar and one group having a meal. We had fried green tomatoes upfront then a pulled pork sandwich and the chili plus a couple glasses of wine. It was all great. The service and food were done well. It was a... More

Glad my bucket list has to deal with moving from wonderful Southern California, and not kicking the bucket. Been past here many times and decided to add it the list before we move. It looks like their drinks might be the kicker here. Because there food was slightly higher than most bbq places and average, did i mention average at... More

Stopped by a couple of afternoons for "refreshments." Good list of beers, both Beachwood and guest taps, and very tasty sweet potato fries. Can't speak about other menu items, but this is a very popular place, so nuf said. Best of all - very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Smaller place than the one in Long Beach, but this one has...

First things first, fantastic customer service all around. Well done. Sadly the food fell short tonight. Great selection of beer, gotta like that. Even better when its Happy Hour! And now for the food. The Almond Crusted Trout looked like a huge, thin pancake. We envisioned a crispy texture but it was mushy and the sauce was a bit bitter.... More

This place is always crowded but we'll worth the wait. If you are craving barbeque in the area this is the spot. Tender, juicy and AWESOME sauces. Great sausage and brat too. A must try!

Came here for the friend's birthday because why not, the food taste good here. The combos are a good value here, so it is worth it to get it. The brisket and the ribs are never bad. The area is a chill place to hang out and relieve some stress so I know I will be back.

Visited Seal Beach and decided to give this place a try. Absolutely loved the ham sandwich. Good selection of beers and moderately priced.

Had high hopes for this neat little place on Main Street. Took the family and had a short wait but excellent and courteous service from the hostess and waitress. Good selection of beer (I think 21 on tap). I got the brisket sandwich and just about every other bite was all fat. If a bbq joint can't do a good... More

Between the four of us we had the pulled pork, brisket and baby backs. Brisket was a little dry. Enjoyed the asparagus, baby backs and pulled pork. Nice assortment of sauces. Loud environment; definitely not the place to take someone with hearing aids. Dining room is small, very informal and don't be surprised if you wind up conversing with your... More
