As a local, it's always great to see the occasional first-time tourists discover this coastal GA gem. Capt. Stan is a master of the dry-rub rib technique and his Boston Butt BBQ is to die for. This is a real local pub (mostly outside, covered seating) with live music on weekends. Locals attending in abundance each are some flavor of... More

Ribs aren't the only thing smoked at Stan's. Sit outside by the fire and chew on some delicious ribs in the open air while local talent comes out and picks on a guitar or sit inside under the gas heater. They say it started out as a bait shop and somehow morphed into a bbq rib joint. Don't really care... More

Captains Stan's is a exceptionally good smokehouse in Camden County and along the 95 South Corridor. We drove 5 miles of off interstate 95 to get to the place, but it was worth it. I would rate the ribs right up there with Southern Soul which is on St Simons Island and all their different sauces as well. Very Good... More

What happens behind the fence ...stays behind the fence. If you are looking for good soul food ...this is the place! I got the "Soul Bowl" with smoked chicken , collards and Lima beans ...complete with garlic toast ...my husband chosen Pulled Pork Sandwich served up on a bun complete with coleslaw. Delia Hines from beginning to end....just sayin'
