We had six adults at Surf City BBQ the first week of July, and I was very impressed with it. The food was good - nothing fancy, but very well done. The fried chicken (chicken in generally, really) was well received, potatoes and gravy, Brunswick...More

Great family business friendly workers who make you feel right at home. Been coming here since they first opened in the corner of a strip mall on Topsail. This is the one Must DO restaurant every year when we vacation on Topsail.

We love barbecue and this restaurant did not disappoint! The Carolina vinegar type sauce tastes amazing and the prices are pretty great too! Can't wait to come back!

Typical BBQ menu, similar to Sonny's or Stamey's. I had the pulled BBQ sandwich. It came with Cole slaw (I asked for it on the side) and then I ordered a side of baked beans. Everything was very filling. Quick service.

I ordered clam strips with french fries. My husband ordered the shrimp burger and fries. Both were delicious. The kids shrimp and fries was what my daughter had and she enjoyed her meal as well.
