The BBQ house is why we drive the 9 hours it takes to get to Southport/Oak Island. We Compare any BBQ we eat ALL year long to this place! It is the absolute Best we have Ever Had! Not only the BBQ, but the Sauces, Sides and Desserts. ANY of the Cobblers are worth saving room for and we also... More

All of the choices here are great! Especially take advantage of their daily specials! The Wedding Soup is Amazing! Best Wings in Brunswick County!

Really really good items here. Sometimes just get them. Ribs are good. Have heard they rock breakfast too. Brunswick stew is excellent.

This is the "old standby" for when we're in the mood for BBQ. The meat is (generally) tender, and the sauce (available at the table) is excellent. Their spicy and sweet varieties are really good. The sides we've tried are all great, especially the macaroni and cheese, and the potato salad. You cannot go wrong at the BBQ house.

This restaurant has great barbecue . The Brisket is the best I've ever had. Great sides too. Creamy mac and chese, deep fried corn and oh those hush puppies. Finish with peach cobbler or banana pudding. Take away available.

We loved our experience at the Barbeque House...we were here for all three meals at different times during our trip...breakfast lunch and dinner. We also picked up some to go vegetables and sides one night when my husband had been out fishing and caught the main part of dinner....getting the sides made the rest so easy. I'm no expert on...

The pulled pork is some of the best I have ever had. The east Carolina vinegar sauce is great. The staff are very friendly. We go here several times when we come to the beach. Hands down best place in Oak Island.

We enter the restaurant and are told to seat ourselves. Help ourselves to menu on table. Wait. Read menu. Wait. Decide what to order. Wait. Both of us leave table separately, ready to order for both, to wash our hands. Wait. Finally, waitress arrives and asks only what we want to drink. Interrupts us when we try to order meal... More
