Lunch was good. Had pulled pork BBQ sandwich. Friends enjoyed their sandwiches as well. I have been back once after a bike ride too.

Lots of different meat options; venison, boar, bison, etc. I stuck with the ribs which were delicious. Small place, tight seating. Great service! 4 different sauces available on the table: Vinegar, Mustard, Spicy and Sweet.

This place, like all on Main St. in Seal Beach, is casual. If you like beer and BBQ, you will probably enjoy yourself. They have a bar with many, many beer-on-tap selections on one side, and the restaurant on the other, even though the place is small. A lot of people love this place. The style of BBQ is not... More

The service is always friendly and the staff is very knowledgeable about what they are currently pouring. I have never been disappointed with any food order. Will continue to return when seating is available on our walk by. Busy place.

I really like BBQ which is probably why I will give the food a good rating; however, I have had some rather mediocre BBQ recently, so it was nice to have some real good BBQ at Beachwood. Came with my son for a boys afternoon out, and arrived at a slow part of the day. I must say that the... More

We arrived close to 9 pm on a Tuesday evening. There were a few people watching TV in the bar and one group having a meal. We had fried green tomatoes upfront then a pulled pork sandwich and the chili plus a couple glasses of wine. It was all great. The service and food were done well. It was a... More

Glad my bucket list has to deal with moving from wonderful Southern California, and not kicking the bucket. Been past here many times and decided to add it the list before we move. It looks like their drinks might be the kicker here. Because there food was slightly higher than most bbq places and average, did i mention average at... More

Stopped by a couple of afternoons for "refreshments." Good list of beers, both Beachwood and guest taps, and very tasty sweet potato fries. Can't speak about other menu items, but this is a very popular place, so nuf said. Best of all - very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Smaller place than the one in Long Beach, but this one has...

First things first, fantastic customer service all around. Well done. Sadly the food fell short tonight. Great selection of beer, gotta like that. Even better when its Happy Hour! And now for the food. The Almond Crusted Trout looked like a huge, thin pancake. We envisioned a crispy texture but it was mushy and the sauce was a bit bitter.... More

This place is always crowded but we'll worth the wait. If you are craving barbeque in the area this is the spot. Tender, juicy and AWESOME sauces. Great sausage and brat too. A must try!
