The Barbeque House is what it says on the label - barbeque and pretty much nothing but. We had a short wait to clear a booth big enough for six. I noticed the smell of smoke but nearly as much as I would have expected....More

We eat here every year we visit Oak Island. The barbecue is always fantastic. This is a must visit meal when spending time on Oak Island. Both the chopped pork and ribs are phenomenal.
