Dry ribs

Great view. Good service. Fun line dancing. Ribs were giant size but WAY dry. Prices were fair but for a rib place was hoping for more.

We took our child out for her birthday. I had a great time, with about 8 people who were all full to the brim when done eating. My wife and I stayed for the live music. Fabulous! We were there in January but in the summer with a live band on the weekend, I'll be there. Moderately low in the... More

Me and my buddy's went here for guys night. Easy to get to. We parked about 100 yards down the street, very busy area with other eateries. The ribs had lots of flavor, lot of meat, was amazing. Our server was always around and was very sweet asking if we need anything. Left very happy. Be warned coming from CT,... More

A fun easy going restaurant on Newburg ' s waterfront. The food was great large portions with excellent sides. I had the Brontosaurus rubs and beef briskit. The meats were tender flavorful and well seasoned. And the ribs made me feel like Fred Flinstone. Definitely a good barbecue spot come hungry leave stuffed you won't be disappointed!

Food and service are okay, nothing special. The location is the best part of the experience. Ribs were a bit of a disappointment and everything felt kind of greasy not fresh and clean.

The food is good here but it is over priced. The location is nice in the summer, right on the water and the staff are very nice. A lot cheaper options out there for good bba.

Views of the Hudson River are the best feature of this local BBQ restaurant. We enjoyed our burgers. The Mac n Cheese burger was very good! Not overwhelming like I had anticipated. Looking forward to going back in the summer so we can enjoy the outside deck & Live entertainment.

I don't mind a good sauce, but only to... More

Billy Joes is our go to when we want good BBQ. We have never had a bad meal. They have a good selection of BBQ meats and the sides are good, try the cheesy grits. Also they have reasonably priced kids meals which includes ice cream which my kids love. They have a good selection of craft brews which expands... More
