    Bayport BBQ

    Though I hail from Virginia, about once a year I find myself in Minneapolis for business. We normally don't stray outside the city, but this past time found ourselves headed over into Wisconsin on 94. The rest of the guys were having a hard time figuring out where anybody wanted to eat, so I found Bayport BBQ on the map and suggested it. So we decided to try it out.

    There were 8 wide grins after we walked in the door, smelled good smells, and the hostess informed us that there was an all-you-can-eat buffet available with several types of barbecue meat on it. We all got the buffet.

    This was my first plate, and as you can tell I was trying to get a little bit of everything on there. Starting with the meat and going counter-clockwise:
    - brisket
    - ribs
    - chicken
    - sausage
    - baked beans
    - creamed corn
    - corn bread
    - scalloped potatoes
    They had brownies for dessert too.

    Suffice it to say that we got our money's worth on that buffet. Everybody was stuffed and satisfied. We couldn't believe our good fortune - stumbling into an unknown barbecue joint and happening to find a) a buffet, and b) good barbecue.

    I wouldn't say that anything was spectacular, it was a buffet after all. But it was definitely pretty good. The baked beans were really good too (and I've had a lot of baked beans) - had a nice kick to them! Wasn't a huge fan of the rest of the sides, but all the meat was tasty.

    Service was fine, the people there were very friendly. It was also a pretty unique restaurant - they are very into "deep blues" there.


    I know that Ericm has mentioned them a few times, and that JCGrill and Spinaker are probably familiar with them, but hadn't seen an official review. I went there, so felt like I should give it a write-up. If I find myself going through Bayport again, I'll most likely be stopping by again.

    It would be a mystery if Frank and Joe don't eat there......


      I haven't been to it, but I think DDD has been there, I seem to remember an episode where you serve yourself. I guess I should make a trip.

      Interesting! I will have to check this out when I cross the boarder for some real fireworks. The trip generally ends up being me driving my brothers around to different Firework shops, stopping at local watering holes along the way for a "few Fast ones." Makes for a fun day, but some quality BBQ for the DD might be just the ticket. Thanks for sharing.

      Next time you are in town. Let me know and we can hit up Storm King BBQ. Right in south Minneapolis. I would be happy to meet you there. Maybe we can get a few others down there too!
