Nice view

The view is nice, but the food really didn't impress us. The fried pickles were very salty. The BBQ had a good, smokey flavor but our fries were clearly frozen fries and were lukewarm. The cole slaw was pretty good. Prices were ok. We are not sure if we will return.

This is a nice, laid back establishment with a rural decor... like the guys from American Pickers decorated it.

My family had fried green... More

Food is very good simple bbq. Nothing fancy and service is a little slow. The view is amazing if you sit outside on the deck. Good selection and fair prices.

Atmosphere is great and the food is good. You can enjoy your meal sitting out over looking the sound and watch the kids play on the inflatables. The kids love it!

We are staying at a friends condo just over the bridge. He told us this place was good- We agree!! Cheese fries- my daughter devoured them. I, being from Texas, hesitate to try BBQ. This place does it right. We WILL be going again while we are here!

Walked in and seated right away. The waitress was attentive and delivered our drink orders quickly. The wait for food was short. All in the party was satisfied with meal ordered.

We arrived around 6:00 PM after a long drive straight from Knoxville, TN. Everyone was hungry and it was too late to shop for food to fix in the beach house we had rented so we decided to give East River Smokehouse a try. We loved it!!! The atmosphere was fun and casual. There were so many things to catch... More
