This is not BBQ! When they first arrived on the scene in Bethany(years ago)it was yummy. Now since they have expanded and really don't care what you think about quality,and survive on volume of patrons , then why go. I've been to the BEST In NY and NJ where real BBQ is smoked for hours with incredible rubs. This visit... More

I used to live in Sussex county and Bethany Blues (both locations) was a normal stop for us, since we moved to Pennsylvania we actually make occasional trips to the beach just to visit Bethany Blues. However this time the food and service wasn't up to what we normally expect. The pulled pork nachos, is usually a must have, but... More

Small selection of beers. Good bar food. Staff was super attentive. Lots of TV's if you're trying to catch a game. Heard about $1.00 mimosas on Sundays which we would come back for

3 adult sisters had dinner here this week. 2 pulled pork sandwiches, 1 pulled chicken sandwich. BBQ was decent at a fair price - not the best BBQ I've ever had, but good. Shock Top draft beer was cold and good. Our shared bourbon cake dessert (recommended by our server) was delicious; we would have licked the plate if we... More

My first time here, that's right I'm still sitting at the bar while writing this review. The crab dip is creamy and the bread comes warm with burnt garlic crumbles! The Pork Belly comes piled high with orange slices, raspberry sauce, and a knife! Need I say more! The bar specializes in Bourbon n Ryes, you can ask Jason or... More

St. Louis spare ribs were good. Beef Brisket was very dry. Informed server and they responded that they would tell the kitchen. No compensation offered or received. Server missed opportunity to escalate Dry beef brisket.

Had dinner here a few weeks ago. The food was decent but not outstanding. My wife had the Smokehouse Salad with brisket $17 and said it was very good. Another friend and I had the 1/2 rack of ribs $17, they were good but frankly not as tasty as the ones you can get at Harris Teeter so that was... More

Bethany Blues catered our wedding and the food was amazing! Our guests are still talking about it to this day (almost 4 months later since I'm a terrible procrastinator when it comes to reviews). There was plenty of food and they made it easy for us to take home and save leftovers. We froze the leftovers and especially enjoy having... More

We were here for lunch and ate in the dining room. A raucous kids party was a negative. We should have taken a high top table in the bar which was adult cool. They have a large stage for live acts. My blues Reuben was pretty good as was my husbands pulled pork sandwich. Eating the bar area. Dining room... More
