Looking for a comfort meal in a casual atmosphere, we were directed to Riverfront BBQ. At the last minute, we decided that having live music in a bar might be fun too. So we climbed the stairs to the Gin Mill and perched next to the solo musician – who was great. A good selection of beers and ales got... More

Our first time there, very nice restaurant for a BBQ. Old building with classy decor. The BBQ was good, its the real deal. Not the best i ever had, but worth the trip. The service was excellent, far above what you ever expect at a BBQ place. The hush puppies were very good and did not need the sauce provided.... More

Very nice place in Augusta. Barbeque pork was very tasty and the staff was very friendly. Good lunch menu. I did not try the soups but they looked very tempting.

We searched historic downtown Augusta for something with a view of the River, but no dice. There was one Italian place with a deck but it wasn’t open. We had hoped the Riverfront Grille would be on the Riverfront, but it’s across the street and if you are at a certain table with a certain angle you can see a... More

The food was very good at this restaurant, but the service was slow. For much of our time in the restaurant, there was only one waitress. Still, if you like barbeque, this is the place for you. Their grilled cornbread is not to be missed!

Decided to have lunch here after seeing the good reviews. I ordered ribs and brisket - a relatively standard BBQ order - but get this: they don't serve that unless you agree to an up charge of $4. I've never heard of a barbecue place that doesn't offer a basic two meat plate! Ribs: very dry and over-smoked. Roughly half... More

The service was good and fast but the food nothing out of the ordinary. We had ribs as appetizer and they were over cooked. The brisket was good but the barbecue beans were not that great. Cole slaw was savory. The portion were very good and prices reasonable.

I actually live part time in Augusta and wanted to give Riverfront a shout out because it is just damn good. They serve great portions of great food. Local seafood with a Louisiana flair. Very unusual in Maine where a lot places keep it bland for the natives. The chef/owner has Louisiana roots and can serve up a great jambalaya... More

I have visited this lovely establishment time and again without disappointment. It offers amazing barbeque options, a cozy atmosphere, and delightful staff. The prices are very reasonable, the place is clean; and there are many kid friendly options. I am partial to the BBQ steak bomb, but I have also tried many other dishes and have yet to complain. I...
