Great BBQ. I had the Carolina vinegar and black pepper sauce that was out of this world. Great Cole slaw and the cheddar cheese biscuits and honey butter are to die for. Good beer selection. Bigger than it looks and the patio looks great for warmer weather. Only downside is that is not dog friendly.

Not crazy about the table, so sticky and dirty. The food was horrible but, the previous dinner was ok. The service is so so but, if you don't need water, you have no choice to get more and more...

We have to try the barbecue. It looked as if everyone there was enjoying it. We just stopped in for a quick bite. My wife had smoked brisket chili that she said was great. My Brunswick stew was very good. The service was also very good.

Jim n nicks is a great place for couples or families that want good barbecue. There cheese biscuits are so good you will always need to ask for a second basket. I always enjoys there ribs so good and smoked perfectly every time. My husband goes for the turkey with white barbecue sauce. Great sides also!!

Ordered take-out pulled pork family size and sides. Got home and the pulled pork was still in a tight pile, not pulled. It was extremely fatty. The sides were fine. Recently (last six months) the food quality is inconsistent. The problem with take out is you don't know until you get home an open it. Very disappointed.

Meals are good but not exceptional. They always run our of ribs. Steaks have too much grizzle for me. Good sandwiches with smoked turkey.

After a day of visiting Savannah, we stopped at this place in Bluffton to pick up takeout barbecue to bring back to our condo on Hilton head. The food was delicious. Each Styrofoam takeout container also contained a surprise – two small but delicious cornbread muffins. The pulled pork with the sweet barbecue sauce was quite good. Every side dish... More

Worth a stop if you're ready barbecue fan. Lots of selections. Suggest you asked for the barbecue sauce to be put on the side as a sauce is very generously spread on the ribs.

We each got the two meat combo and the portions were generous and delicious. The cheddar biscuits were very good.
