Moonshine and bare feet on wooden patios overlooking water can be one of the best parts of the Southern experience. Throw Carolina barbeque into the mix and you’ve just about reached the pinnacle. Stillhouse BBQ in Barefoot Landing has all of this and more for a great taste of the Carolinas.
So much of what this family-owned restaurant offers is made in house, and what isn’t is sourced locally from other Carolina businesses. Every morning the meat is smoked over hickory which leaves the inside of the building smelling absolutely edible.
Because of this, the pulled pork and ribs are hard to say no to, but Stillhouse does have other Southern foods that shouldn’t be missed out on. Fried corn nuggets and fried pickles can get the meal started right, or for perhaps something a little healthier, there are two salads to choose from.
However, customers aren’t really dropping in for something green. Plates are the most popular option for enjoying the Southern taste, such as the pulled pork burrito or the shrimp and ribs plate. These meals come with a side of baked beans and coleslaw, but there are other Southern sides to enjoy like green beans or macaroni and cheese.
Stillhouse’s burgers are made from beef that’s never been frozen and are hand-smashed, creating a perfectly juicy sandwich, all of which go well with any of the restaurant’s signature barbeque sauces. The Speakeasy Moonshine Burger, for example, is topped with bacon, pimento cheese, and moonshine barbeque, and is a perfect combination of savory and creamy with just the right amount of sweetness.
Other sandwiches now include the famous Po’Boy which can either be served traditionally with shrimp, or with fried catfish. The restaurant’s pulled pork can be enjoyed between buns as well, and they even offer a fried bologna sandwich called The Bootlegger. Burgers and sandwiches all come with Stillhouse’s seasoned fries and a bit of coleslaw.
Barbeque lovers will definitely find a lot to enjoy, but the menu behind the bar shouldn’t be forgotten. Stillhouse proudly serves local beers and Southern whiskeys, and are particularly known for their large selection of Palmetto Moonshine. Stillhouse has partnered with the company to create their own whiskey aged in house and only available in the restaurant.
For suggestions on pairing what liquor with what meat, the friendly servers are happy to help. Then to finish the experience on a sweet note, guests can roast their own s’mores tableside.
Stillhouse has made itself an embodiment of the Carolinas, from the mountains to the coast. Its location guarantees visitors will drop by, but even in the off season the restaurant is sure to stay busy with locals who love the taste of home.
