We were staying about 15 minutes away at a hotel (stopover on our way to the beach) and decided to give this place a try for dinner. Atmosphere was casual- plastic forks, disposable paper menus, folding chairs etc, but it was still nice inside. A...More

First visit to Saucy's and had the sandwich and split a rack of ribs. Everything was very tasty and the portions were just right. Will visit again for sure

What can I say other than awesome? This place has great BBQ and a great atmosphere. Meals are served on old timey metal trays, and everything just has a nostalgic feel to it. Really fits in well in Old Petersburg.

So different, and so much better, than the BBQ I've had over the years - really terrific 'cole slaw' - more like a super fresh 'health' salad - potato salad, and seasoned french fries - super craft beer selection on tap (which I couldn't try...More

I called the restaurant. You would definitely have to make a reservation. The number would partially depend upon the day and time. They have not had private events. They have seated up to 20 at one time. If you're... More
