Perfect Blend of Flavors

We respect the traditional BBQ ingredients highlighting smoke, pepper, sweet, salt, and aromatics and enhance them with bright and fresh flavors.


Nobody does BBQ like the south. Without a traditional regional style, West Virginians sample and fuse the various southern BBQ styles to their individual tastes and surround the BBQ with time-honored Appalachian soul food sides.

A Passion For BBQ

Practicing his passion for BBQ throughout his life, Dr Rolf is now prepared to share it with you.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Superb barbecue and sides. Had the pulled pork, Brisket, and ribs which were superb. Very juicy and tender. The cornbread waffles are great, and that was probably the best collard greens I've ever had. Mac n Cheese and Tots were great too! They have tent tables outside during COVID and their takeout is booming! Good craft beer selection, too!

Igloo dining is a fun experience and food was overall very good! Cameron our waiter was super attentive and wore a mask as well. The chicken things were very tender and delicious and they have a nice variety of bbq sauce. The cornbread waffles were great (not too dry), I loved the flavor of the collared greens (smokey and bits of bacon), the ribs were tender and flavorful, the Mac and cheese had a great oven baked flavor and the tater tots were good also. The pulled pork was dry and cole slaw bland. The hot tottie no with with cinnamon sticks hit the spot!

Probably the best BBQ around. Definitely the best in Grand Haven (too bad Dr. Rolf's is in Muskegon...) Heard Dr. Rolf's will be replacing Righteous BBQ in the Grand Armory Brewery in Grand Haven, which would be a very great thing to happen.
