I love BBQ and this place was recommended to me by another fellow BBQ enthusiast so I decided I would try it out. I had the Ribs and they were simply amazing. Service was quick and friendly and prices were reasonable. Will definitely come back when I get a chance!

I have been to East River twice in new location & was disappointed both time. I liked it better in old location on sr87. Had friends visiting & they wanted BBQ they were not impressed!

Placed an order for take out. Had the girl who took my order read it back to me & everything was repeated correctly. When I picked up my order I was greeted with very friendly staff. They told me when I placed my order that it was going to be ready in 15 minutes. I arrived there 25 minutes later,... More

First time trying the new place. Food was very good. Service great and friendly. A little taken aback by the pina colada in the Styrofoam cup but all in all we a great time.

Visited this place for the 1st time since new ownership and new location. Ribs were still as good as I remember them being - 10+ years ago from the small "hole-in-the-wall" location a few blocks away. Menu a little pricey, but plenty of ribs and left full.

Poor service, mediocre at best food, although parts of it were not palatable, and overpriced. Atmosphere was great and the jumpy stuff is nice for kids but maybe a drink and no food. Worst part was they use plastic utensils and Styrofoam plates! REALLY PEOPLE!?!?! On the beach...assenign.

As a BBQ eating professional in Austin, I know what's good. The ribs were drier than normal and a little more greasy than juicy. I also tried the seafood gumbo which was enjoyable. Burgers aren't worth it. The staff is very friendly.

My family of 5 ate here for lunch while on vacation. They have a lunch special which includes a sandwich, 2 sides and a drink for $8.99. The food was good, the waittress was friendly, service was great and it was affordable. Would definitely return.

We've been there three times--mostly because or friends like the view and atmosphere. Although those are both good, the food is at best, average. And-I believe a bit overpriced for what it is. If you want a view of the water or like an atmosphere that resembles an old fashioned county roadhouse, Go. Otherwise there's much better BBQ food.

Great place to take kids as they have an open area for them to run around and play (sand). The food is awesome and the service is spot on. We have been three times in the month of July. Got to have a VooDoo bucket and wings when I go for starters. I like to get the combo plate and... More
