Overall had a good experience but way over priced and I’m not the biggest smoke expert but the meats tasted all the same. The ribs weren’t very juicy or smothered in sauce as expected. The brisket was the best. Value for money? Not at all but overall decent experience.

Great value for money. Would be nice to have a few more sides to choose from. Wouldn't think of mac n cheese as a side dish. Really enjoyed the pickles. The Brisket was the best, really tender.

BBQ brisket was A+, great outdoor setting but it ends there. Service is questionable, server forgot water and had to ask to 3 times, food quantity could improve for sharing platter, Mac and cheese was runny - kid size for 2 adults.

We had two tables booked (11 people) both tables had orders missing. Our table had a beef cheek missing and a drink. The other table had a chicken portion and beef cheek portion missing too. We did get them in the end when we told the wait staff they were missing, but would be better if we didn't need to remind them. There were quite a few things on the menu that weren't available also.

It was disappointing that chicken, brisket, sausages and ribs were not available given our table was booked for 6pm. The food and wine that we did have were superb as always

Great food and a great team. Atmosphere was a bit restrictive under Lev 2 but Blue Ox Babe have a good process following the rules and protecting everyone. The crew are super friendly and the food was awesome. Generous portions and fantastic quality. We'll definitely be back.

We were a group of 11 and from the get-go we were looked after by our lovely and very attentive waitress without flaw. The food was beyond our expectation, yummy, fresh and most importantly made with love. Thank you so much we had been looking forward to dining with Blue Ox Babe BBQ for a long time and it was worth the wait. We will be back. Murti Family xxx

Great place. Great vibe. The brisket was fantastic, loved it. The pork belly was surprising dry, thought that would be tender. Sides were great. The burgers were delicious. All round a solid 8.5. Absolutely considering coming back.
