This dirty little hole in the wall was very enticing. I like going to restaurants like this. It was a bad choice. All of the sides were fried. The other sides were not available. We both ordered the BBQ Pork. While we waited, their microwave was running. I had to wonder if our food was being nuked. When we got the food, it was smothered in BBQ sauce. We are not too fond of mustard BBQ sauce.

Having only eaten here once, and the food was delicious. However, it was rather expensive for barbecue and the restaurant itself was fairly....dirty. Nasty tables, sticky chairs, it just didn't seem like a hygienic place to eat. It IS more of a beach bar/shack (it's connected to a bar,) so I'm taking it with a grain of salt. But a wipedown of the tables would have been nice.... The employees were VERY nice, though. Will probably give it another shot in the future.

Island, and its many incarnations, have some of the best"Q" on Amelia Island, better yet, the whole of NE FL!

Excellent. Ribs fall off the bone. Chicken and the pulled pork were also first class. Sauce was perfect. Side dishes were excellent and plentiful. We had a very large order carry out order as it was feeding 17 people. They treated us right with the speed of the preparation and the packaging (everything we need to dig right in!).

Excellent mustard based BBQ! The owner was the one who waited on us....such a nice man. More than enough food. We couldn't eat all we were served. The chicken was moist and tender. The pork was also good with a smoked flavor. Fun place to visit and just a quick walk from the beach.
