Awesome chili and onion rings. Outdoor seating was very relaxing with a perfect view of the Hudson River and New York Skyline. The only negative I have is non-service dogs being allowed in the dining areas and their owners letting them wander to other tables.

I'm a Lyft driver & based on customer's reviews & my friends, I decided to come there with family. We enjoyed everything. Service was VERY good & attentive. Food was on point......not bad at all for a NJ bbq place!! I'll be back....💯

The reviews online for this restaurant appeared good however our experience was poor. The burgers we received were inedible
Bought a milkshake and it was also poor with cheep chocolate syrup

The service and food were mediocre at best. The place was pretty empty son a Sunday afternoon- and despite this it took forever to take our order and the order was wrong. The meat was chewy and the BBQ sauce tasted old and rancid. The only redeeming quality is the location right on the waterfront.

Good food could of came out a little hotter seems like it might of sat out and cooled down before it was served to us. Waitress was very good hooked us up with 2 sweet shots for our anniversary and our first time there. Would go back again

It has a simple decor/ menu selection is minimal. The service was excellent & food tasted great. I ordered corn bread was no good at all. The prices are reasonable was a little disappointed that they didn’t offer the restaurant week offer for dinner.

Absolutely loved the ambience....the piano karaoke was awesome...food was excellent...although my chicken was slightly smaller than usual...my boyfriend is a country boy from out of town and was extremely satisfied with his meal. Two thumbs up definitely.

Our sides did not arrive until our meats were almost finished. They attributed the mix up to the kitchen but no compensation was given for the bad service.

Long community picnic tables mixed with booths made House of Que feel very cozy for a large space. Service is casual and laid back, great place for family with kids or big group. Food was amazing, so many options to pick from and from sharing plates with everyone I thought everything was good

Nice work with weekend brunch :) and the outdoor picnic tables make for the most four-legged-furry-friend friendly restaurant I've ever been to.

I made a reservation for 8 pm and when I got there it was closed. I tried calling three times and no one answered which then prevented me from making another reservation at a different restaurant. Very upsetting as this was my birthday dinner. There was nothing on the website about the restaurant being closed. If they are going to be closed they should not allow people to make a reservation.

Really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, but the music was just a bit too loud for an 8 pm seating. If you enjoy tour BBQ with dueling piano's, this is the place.

Came in an hour before dueling pianos. Had a good meal of pulled pork, frito pie, and beer, then stuck around a bit for the show. They are so good and so much fun! Quite noisy, not a good place to have a conversation but a lot of fun.

Never sat down. Wanted to sit us 2 ft from hostess with an open door I said it was too cold there and place was empty! Couldn’t give me another table so we walked out!

Made a reservation for 8 for lunch. No one told us it was Family Fun time. 8 adults seated in middle of kiddie birthday party. Super loud. Almost lost it when Elmo made an appearance. There was no where else to seat us when we asked to move out of kiddieland. Food just OK, but server was very nice and responsive and apologetic for kid birthday chaos. Would not go back.

Que was just...OK. I've had much better barbeque (heck, I've MADE much better barbeque), but it was fine for what it was. Happy-hour drinks were cheap and cold if a bit weak. Sitting outside with a view of the water made it worth the trip, but I wouldn't make a special effort to go back.

For the first time in my dozen visits, the ribs were overdone. Crispy and dry.
The pulled pork was outstanding, and the brisket was cooked perfectly.
I'll be back for sure.
