Re: “Fiery Ron's Home Team BBQ

The food's usually pretty good, but the service is so, so bad. I've been six or seven times in the last year or so and I still have yet to get the sides that I actually ordered with my entree. Doesn't matter what day we go or what meal we're eating...it's kind of amazing. They need to implement some kind of ticket system, because what they're doing behind the counter right now clearly isn't working.

Re: “Smoky Oak Taproom

Smokey Oak fills the late night parking lot. Smokey Oak is small with a patio when you love the outdoor heat & bugs. If you want great barbeque, drive out EARLY along Maybank all the way to JB's SmokeShack early Wed-Sat... late night HOME TEAM BBQ is GREAT IN WEST ASHLEY and on Sullivan's Island. I'm going back to Smokey Oak when we visit James Island friends. Beer snobs learn the difference between bock & tap

Re: “Smoky Oak Taproom

Service was severly lacking~even sitting at the bar. A friend of mine sat at the bar to place a to go order and was never helped after getting her first drink. She ended up ordering a take out from another restaurant while waiting. Food is good as long as you have the patience.

Re: “Smoky Oak Taproom

I'm happy with the beer selection, the atmosphere is very nice, the food is good. I really only have a few issues with the place. The first one is the table service. Quite slow, didn't get silverware, waited about 10 minutes for drinks. The waitress also took 15 minutes to get our check when we were ready to go. She rationalized it by saying, "I've been out for a while, so, you know." The food was good for the most part. I was pleased that there was a difference between the regular and large BBQ plates. The only issue was my brisket. I'm from KCMO, so I know my beef BBQ. It tasted great, very tender. However, there was a TON of fat on mine. I would estimate about 40% of my meat. I know a good brisket will have some, but it's easily trimmed before serving. It made the meal not worth the price based on the amount of meat wasted. The last complaint I have about the place is the exposed air duct running across the ceiling. It was apparently very humid because there was a lot of condensation that kept dripping on me throughout the evening. If the service improves at the tables I'll have a much higher opinion. The bar service is excellent, they use your name, don't force drinks down your throat, etc. Overall a good place but not without it's flaws.

Re: “Smoky Oak Taproom

I ordered take-out from here Friday. The ribs were falling off the bone good. However, the mac and cheese and the appetizers were a disappointment. The macaroni was flavorless. The stuffed jalapenos and the bacon were underdone. The potato skins were actually halved whole potatoes with a sliver of chicken on top. They were also undercooked. I will give them another try for the pizzas or sandwiches, but skip the apps.
