We had a group of 8 who needed dinner before a trip to Anna Maria Island, and our "local" family recommended 4 Rivers. Wow - so delicious! We all had different meals ranging from the pulled pork sandwich to the prime rib to the burnt ends. I'll have to say the burnt ends were my personal favorite. There were numerous... More

We visited for lunch and both of us had the BBQ pulled pork sandwiches. The sandwich was tasty as well as the sides I chose - deep fried pickles and sweet potatoes. It was quite crowded but the service was quick. You get your food served on a tray with brown paper on it. The sides are in small bowls.... More

I'm from Asheville, NC where 12 Bones BBQ rules the Q-Roost. Even Pres. Obama always makes a visit when he's in town. However, when I first had some of 4 Rivers BBQ...WOW...it's the best to me. I know people are finicky about their BBQ considering what's considered the best is often judged by their regional bias. Personally, this is how... More

To me, maybe it has just been timing for my visits but it is average barbque, in my opinion. Maybe a bit over-priced for me...they definitely don't have the overhead as they do not use plates for most of their dishes. Desserts--they are not made at 4Rivers but I would find a different supplier. We've tried a couple of different... More

First- remember this is a smokehouse/bar-b-q restaurant. It is a laid back atmosphere with high quality food at a more than reasonable price. The food is always prepared very well, with good portion sizes. My favorite is the brisket (TEXAS DESTROYER) and the prime rib sandwich. Again, I've tried almost everything on the menu and never had anything I disliked;... More

Visited here in November 2014. It was fantastic. Good was top notch at a very reasonable price. I had the brisket and it was superb - soft, meaty, peppery goodness. Really tasty. Sides include BBQ beans which were superb, homemade brisket chilli I will remember forever. Wife had excellent ribs, kids had chicken wings and pulled pork, all was great.If... More

I am from Texas. We know brisket. We loved brisket before brisket was cool. And 4 Rivers knows how to do brisket. Take my boots and I will remove my hat to this place. Great mac and cheese, great BBQ beans, oh my. I thought I was in Texas. Sweet BBQ sauce, Memphis style, meat was perfect. Expand this brand.... More

Love their smoked wings and coffee rub. Cafeteria style service, but you can call ahead for take out. The prices are very good, sides are tiny and desserts are beautiful AND tasty!
