This restaurant has a lot going for it, and it is tucked in a shopping plaza. We enjoyed what we ordered - ribs, shrimp with coleslaw, and grilled asparagus. The wine list is very good The service was good, but needs refinement to go to the next level. We will be back because they are doing many things well here. The coleslaw with the shrimp was very nice - not the usual smothered in mayonnaise coleslaw. However, the coleslaw that came with the ribs was the version that is heavy with mayonnaise and vinegar so that all coleslaw flavor is lot. I hope the management reads reviews and fine tunes service and food to make this place just that much better.

We happened to wander in here because we had shopping to do at the bookstore. Nice brunch surprise! And it was only their first day doing brunch! I had chicken and waffles (with honey butter, yum!) and my husband had the burger. Both were delicious. We didn't have a cocktail but the cocktail menu looked inventive. Maybe next time. The fried chicken was perfectly cooked, waffle was a little cool. Burger was done to order.

The food at the Q was very good, but not good enough to have to wait 1 1/2 hours to be served. I don't know what their problem was, but it was substantial. I would not return to this restaurant.

First let me say, service was great, outdoor seating comfortable and wine list was overwhelming.
2 people in our party ordered Ham hocks and collards, maybe because they were from the southern part of US and felt it was a "safe" choice & reasonable price. Served in a small iron skillet, ham pieces were tiny and all was overpowered by vinegar. The server did take off the bill and would have brought something else if requested.
I had the ribs which were very good but not outstanding..The Chicken soup was very good and mild flavor. I would have had the swordfish except for price ($27) and the fact swordfish
is on some "overfished" lists.

My wife and I had the Fish & Chips and found them laking to what we would get in the UK. The breading on the fish was puffed up which made it look like we were getting more. The fries where very thin and salty and seemed to have been frozen. Since we have been here before we know that there are other items on the menu that are way better.
