You get a nice big meal, with good southern BBQ. They offer the BBQ in a dinner plate form, or in a sandwich form depending how you are feeling that day.I will be visiting this place multiple times.

We discovered this quaint restaurant about three years ago when we stayed @The Hilton Garden Inn and was taking a stroll to the aquarium. However, on this trip we called the restaurant and was told the restaurant we thought we were going to (across from the Flint River on Broad St) had closed and merged with the sister restaurant in...

The BBQ is good, but the prices are a little high. The sauces are not bad unlike some of the reviews (I like the sweet one). They can get super busy, so you may want to get there early or call in your order.

We have ordered Riverfront twice now for delivery to our meetings at the hospital. They have been early both times. Not only do they deliver, but they set everything up, and make sure we have everything we need. The pork butt is awesome, smokey and not overcooked. The chicken is great as well. Homemade coleslaw, potato salad, and baked beans... More

Driving from Birmingham to Orlando, we wanted to try a non-chain restaurant. On the river, across the street from the Ray Charles park, with excellent barbeque. Great break during a nine hour drive.

We had BBQ with a side of potato salad, and what a great meal!! Nothing fancy about the place and they were BUSY, but well worth stopping by for lunch! They are reasonably priced and the servers were very attentive and checked on us frequently. This was a second visit while in this area; one you should definitely try when... More

Riverfront has the best chili cheese dogs anywhere, as well as a great selection of fried items and a wonderful fresh salad bar. This is not fancy dining, but rather everyday food done extremely well, exactly like it is supposed to be. They have outstanding sweet potato fries and cheese grits (not available during the day).Riverfront is centrally located across... More

I was in town for a meeting at the Hilton Garden Inn across the street and met a local friend here for lunch. I ordered the pork plate with coleslaw and potato salad. Everything was really good, and the staff were very friendly. Downtown Albany doesn't seem to have much going for it, but this was a bright spot.

The BBQ sandwich was good with sauce. Live music and covered outdoor area. A nice experience and children present were having a great time. Family friendly. Coconut cake was great. A good casual place to eat and one of the few downtown. Was open on Saturday evening and had just extended hours. Closed on Sunday. Check hours before you go.... More
