service kind of slow

i am not a huge BBQ/red meat fan, but my husband was dying for some. I do love the local places rather than the chain restaurants. he loved the BBQ and thought it was the best "up north" he has had. I loved the crab cakes, they had nice flavor and were cooked perfect. My daughter (a vegetarian... read more

The ribs and chicken are to die for. I had a half rack of ribs and ended up bringing some home. The barbecued beans and Cole slaw were outstanding, and the service was excellent. The pan blackened haddock was really good. My wife had the house salad with chicken on it, and it came with mandarin orange slices. Everyone was... More

This place has no bbq. Just bbq shredded sandwiches. The waitress failed to take our order after 20 mins of waiting. It was not packed.

Great atmosphere and good music. We had one mission and that was wings. Overall very meaty with decent spice. Could be a little hotter and do not put fruit in beer unless requested.

Augusta is loaded with the typical chain restaurants. This place is intimate and has a great variety of dishes with that Cajun BBQ theme,

The Riverfront appeared to be the only place open on a Monday for lunch in downtown Augusta. Looked appealing from the outside so we decided to give it a try. Nice smell of bbq upon entering and an inviting, clean atmosphere. The three of us sat at a booth and had sandwiches (brisket sandwich, steak/cheese sandwich). The music was kinda... More

The of this establishment could write a book on how not to treat customers. Our party was overcharged and we noticed this a couple of days later. When I contacted the establishment. After four days of unreturned phone calls I finally reached the owner and explained the situation and was accused of trying to get free food. Granted the overcharge... More

We've been to Riverfront BBQ twice, and enjoyed our meals both times. The food is excellent and portions are large. A bit short on the ambiance, but it didn't really matter.

In town on business a couple of days after St. Pat's day, three of us chose the Riverfront Barbeque more-or-less at random (as it was the first restaurant we came upon after our meeting). We were very lucky! The menu was varied and interesting. I chose a special - the buffalo sausage wrap. It was more than ample and very... More

First time here.not a big bbq fan. Friends convinced me to try it. The drinks were great...the food so-so. Like I said, if you like this type of food I guess it is ok. I dont think I would go back just for the food.
