We stopped in for lunch and we were not disappointed. It was a beautiful day so we ate outside and the view cannot be beat. My husband had the Q dip and cole slaw and loved it. I had the turkey melt and fries and I would get it again although I would get another side. The fries were a... More

My wife tried the homemade peach cobbler and said it was great. The setting is nice, with outdoor dinning overlooking the water. The server was very good, friendly and... More

I enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. My husband is a big BBQ fan and he loved it. The outdoor dining area is right on the waterfront. We brought a large crowd and the service was great - even though they did not expect us!

The BBQ ribs are meaty, flavorful and tender. The fish tacos (get three because they are on the small side) were made with fresh fish and excellent. A perfect stop for lunch.

Brunswick stew is very tasty. The Q-ban sandwich is a good choice. Any pulled pork selection or the ribs are delicious. Fries are fresh cut. Service was prompt and friendly. Sports bar atmosphere with covered patio dining with beautiful Beaufort River view.

This place is the best.....We ordered the sample platter and had a little bit of everything. My favorite were the ribs. The meat just falls off the bone. They have indoor and outdoor dining. Q is right on the water.

It's always a great idea to stop by for lunch. Buffalo Shrimp was wonderful so was the BBQ Shrimp. View is always amazing! This is a must do.

As you can read from title, "The Inn" had a private party, the hostess at the Inn recommended "The Q". We had outstanding southern fare Some of the best pulled pork, baked beans, collared greens and peach cobbler we ever had the pleasure of eating!!!!
