This is not a fancy place and there are no printed menus, instead there is a sign on the wall that tells you what is available and the price. Everything was very reasonably priced. I got the pork plate. Pulled pork served with plain white bread, fries and some of the best coleslaw that I have had in a long... More

The Knoth family has been running this restaurant (and its predecessor location) for years, and their experience in smoking meat shows. The barbeque is tender and flavorful. The sauce has a smooth, smoky flavor, with the right balance of acidity, sweetness and peppery taste.

We purchased food for carryout. It was excellent. The young lady who took our order was very friendly and helpful. The meat and sauces were very good.

I've been to quite a few of the alleged 'best barbecue' places across the country and this is my favorite for the pulled pork. Barbecue cuts such a wide swath through culinary definitions that there are too many categories and styles to call anything 'best barbecue', so this review is about the basic pork. Perfectly moist, tender, and the right... More

We should have turned around and left. As soon as we walked in the place, we were never greeted by anyone, weren't sure where to go to get seated as there are two entrances and two dining areas and it is all old & rundown. The few other tables that were occupied, the people just stared rudely at us. But... More

I went to Grand Rivers for the first time ever this past weekend. My fiancee is from Grand Rivers and I have wanted to go since we met. One of the most talked about places is Knoth's. I looked forward to eating there and was completely floored. The food was incredible and I ate until I couldn't handle another bite.... More

Pork and beef bar-b-que cooked daily on a pit at the location. The smell alone makes you hungry and then when you taste their meat with their homemade bar-b-que sauce you will be ordering more to take home. Can't say enough good things about the food, friendly staff, and service.

Excellent BBQ and YUM slaw! Good French fries, too. No beans, no potato salad, but if you're looking for just the basics, this is it! Next time, will call ahead and take it to go for a fun picnic on or near the lake!

Our family has eaten Knoth's BBQ for many years. It is always good. If you want great BBQ, Knoth's is a must.
