A real value and the food is great. Ordered the "hungry man" plate and had enough for four meals. The BBQ is #1 in this area in my opinion.

Let's just put it out there-I grew up with amazing BBQ pork. This is an obvious favorite around these parts, but I'm spoiled, and eventually gave it a try.

Paul Gant's is Amazing! Flavor, portion sizes, prices are all excellent! So happy we finally tried this small family place. We had the Sampler plate and another time had the brisket. Both were tender with a real smoked flavor. We love their sides too, especially the baked beans & coleslaw. We have even stopped by to pick up extra side... More

We have a difficult time buying barbeque at home now because Paul Gant's sets the bar so high. I have to load up and bring enough home to last us.

I've gotten the take out BBQ from Paul Gant's on several occasions. Always delicious and worth the cost. This is an excellent place to get take out when you've O.D.'d on the excellent and abundant local seafood.

We shared a combination plate ribs, chicken, and pulled pork accompanied with 2 sides. Fortunately, we took plenty home to enjoy again and again. We also shared a small banana pudding to die for. Thank you for being here in Port Saint Joe
