We always have a great experience when we go here, they have great bbq and you can smell it radiating through the entire restaurant. Great micro brews. I like the Pulled pork Quesedilla with a side of beans, the Beans here are awesome. If you are in Central Maine this is pretty much the only place that has Decent BBQ.... More

The Riverfront BBQ always serves quality food and the staff is friendly. Stop upstairs at The Gin Mill before your meal for a vast selection of beers, wines, liquor and listen to some great music in the most comfortable lounge. Always a great evening!

Took my family here recently ... food and service was excellent. Get the combo plate - it's a wonderful assortment of their best items. Dessert was inexpensive and great as well....beers on tap were a nice surprise ! Only opportunity was that the food was not served hot - just warm ....still..... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

The Riverfront Barbeque in Augusta serves up some tasty BBQ. It is right on Water Street and great parking close by (lot right next to restaurant). We recently had the combination plate: pulled pork and beef briskette (your choice of two meats. Other options included BBQ Beef and pulled chicken - if I remember correctly). You also got a choice... More

This is very simple: the Ribs had great smoke and very tender/coming off the bone however they did not remove the silver skin and the spicing very lacking; the BBQ beans were very good; and my wife's meal really, really gross!! Very greasy bad tasting Calamari - just horribly un-crispy and tasting of anything but Calamari; she also ordered cheesy... More

Food is terrific. Atmosphere is nice, but if it's busy, it's very hard to carry on a conversation due to a very high ceiling and poor acoustics. Staff is friendly and the day's specials tend to be excellent food for a fair price.

The Riverfront BBQ & Grille is located a bit out of the way on the Augusta riverfront across from the post office on Water Street. This little place has a pub atmosphere with a jazzy industrial feel. There is a short bar and a small dining room. Photos of jazz greats are on the wall and play in the background.... More

This barbecue is one of our local favorites. The food is reasonably priced and plentiful. Their house salad is excellent. The service is terrific and the atmosphere is great.
