We went here for a barbeque sandwich on Saturday night. It was cold outside and we ate inside with everyone else. We both ordered the barbeque sandwich, fries and slaw. It was all good. No complaint about that. My problem is we had a Restaurant.com gift certificate which is worth $25 and they would not honor it. Granted it was... More

We stopped at East River Smokehouse on our way to the beach. The decor on the outside brought us in. Too bad the food wasn't as good as the decorations. Dry over cooked beef brisket. The pulled pork was okay when you added plenty of sauce. The side items were cold & tasteless. The items in the gift shop were... More

Have eaten here two or three times. The last was the final straw. The food is super salty. I too ordered the rib sandwich platter. I was shocked to see meat on the bone and two slices of bread. I can't believe that "locals" would return to this place. I does look good from the street and the interior is... More

This is another place that we frequent when we are in Navarre Beach. I had their ribs for the fist time and was very impressed. The Potato salad was outstanding as well. Service is always good here along with the food!

I ordered the rib sandwich platter. That includes a sandwich and two sides. What I got was three smoked ribs with sauce on top of them, two slices of bread, some great onion rings, and dirty rice that was dirty in color only. Figuring I had gotten the wrong plate delivered, I called the waitress over to have her get... More

The last I checked all ribs sandwiches come with ribs in less you're ordering a Mc rib from McDonald's and unfortunately you were not at McDonald's because if you were you would've been having a Mc rib not a rib sandwich. And as for the chicken sandwich and the rib sandwich we have talked to both the pig and the... More

A typical BBQ restaurant with a nice view of the sound. Outside seating is available when the weather co-operates. We stopped for lunch which was okay but nothing to rave about. Ordered ribs and pulled pork from the lunch sandwich specials for $9 which included a drink and two sides. Again, the food was just okay, we've prepared better bbq... More

The view was the only thing good. This was just some nasty bbq served on paper plates with plastic utensils.

My wife and I visited this restaurant on our way back from North Georgia trip. We both ordered the ribs plate. The ribs were OK. I make better ribs at home, but wanted to try theirs. I have been to this restaurant before for lunch and had the prime rib sandwich, which was much better than the ribs. The outside... More

Family, single, work party, or rock out with the band.......a great spot for all. Awesome food, great view, and always entertained while getting great service. This is the best thing they ever replaced a never ending close out sale beach shop with. Great for the local community, great food and service, and a genuine experience you won't forget.

Made the mistake of ordering the 2 pound pork chop since it was the most reasonably priced item on the menu. Big mistake - but most other menu items are $22-$30.
