We ate at 4 Points on a Thursday evening (no live music, so no crowd) in mid-June, 2014, and limited our meals to smoked turkey sandwiches. I can not address any "typical" service issues because we were the only customers throughout (except for perhaps three phoned-in takeouts), because of wet weather, and thus had the staff's undivided attention. The turkey... More

Had great smoked Carolina pig and burnt ends here. The meat was smoked to perfection and the portion size was great. You have your choice of four sauces on the table - 2 spicy(Maine XXX is awesome) and 2 sweeter. The sides need some work though - potato salad was heavy on mayo and bland and the cornbread was very... More

I have been wanting to check this place out and so happy I finally did. Mouth watering selection of meat for your BBQ sandwich. Got ours to go on the way to a concert in Bangor. Also got their Blues concert schedule for the summer, looks like fun and want to go back.

stopped here with another couple for dinner based on their recommendation. the food was good however the service and "atmosphere" were not. only one waiter serving several picnic tables isn't an efficient system. bud lights for a penny on this night made it worth it. too bad the waiter spilled mine...

What a great little place with a HUGE amount of flavor!! If you blinked going thru Winterport, you might miss it, but the locals will tell you to watch for it! The food is absolutely delicious!!! The tenderness and flavor of the meats offered is hard to beat even from the Kansas city area of bbq country. Melissa, the chef,... More

First off: I'm a BBQ snob of the highest order. Second: A BBQ joint must totally impress me (or repulse me) to prompt a review. 4Points absolutely nails it! The wifey and I were on vacation in Maine a week ago and happened to cruise past this place. Not 5 minutes earlier I had commented that the first BBQ joint... More

After recommendations from people, my husband and I tried this place. The atmosphere was not good but we figured the food quality would make up for it. Upon arrival, we sat on a picnic table where the one and only waitress hollered at us for our drink orders. The doors were open which made the flies very bad. The waitress... More

I have been here a couple times with mixed feelings, but after today I will not be back and am certainly not going to recommend any one else eat there. We waited two whole hours for our food, the waitress couldn't even get all of our drinks to the table. Upon going inside I found her chit chating and not... More

First off outstanding meats and sides, smoked BBQ brisquit too, Texas or Kansas City style. I was told by a server the owner is from Kansas and it definitely shows in the cooking. Well priced and not too expensive for the portions. The night I went there was no live venue playing however there was a good crowd and the... More

As the owner of the b&b in town, The Old Winterport Commercial House, not only do we eat here but we constantly refer and send our guests here. Everyone comes back raving about the food, service, and atmosphere. And did we mention the great music? Fun, fun place.
