Superb location situated on a deck overlooking Hudson River

We stayed near Newburgh for a couple weeks and stopped by here a two times. They were playing country music and had a big crowd. Being from the South, I found this place to be a pleasant surprise right on the Hudson. The food was typical and reasonably priced. The line dancing on Tuesday night is quite entertaining.

I came in wanting smoked meet. I thought I would be getting your standard rib selection, which usually consists of just baby back ribs covered in a selection of sauces. I was pleasantly surprised by depth of the menu. I chose the beef ribs. They were amazing. They fell off the bone. It was great. The selection of beer was... More

We gathered here with a bunch of old friends I had not seen in over 20 years. I had never dined in Newburgh--back when I lived in the Mid-Hudson Valley, this city was a notorious wreck famous for its high murder rate. In fact my companion said last time she was in the area, in the 1980s, a thief smashed... More

Popular large spot right on the Hudson River with great views. This place has a gigantic outside deck. Most of our group had sandwichs, either brisket or pulled pork. Mine was a gigantic tasty sandwich with BBQ pulled pork with cheddar cheese, topped with onion rings. Came with fries. Surprisingly good for this busy place.

I called this restaurant twice for reservations. The staff on the phone is rude. I was on hold for 5 minutes and I hung up. The second person who answered finally told me they don't take reservations for 4, only a party of 8 or more after she again puts me on hold. She tells me she thinks they can... More

Had dinner last night here. While sitting at the bar, witnessed the owner verbally abuse a young female bartender since she did not take her break on time. If you are against this type of abuse, do not support this establishment. Our family and friends will boycott this place from this time forward !!!

Stopped in for lunch and wasn't expecting to be so pleasantly surprised. Lunch on the patio was so delightful. Good food, grilled mac and cheese sandwich was amazing!

Was in town for a wedding and we had the best time at Billy Joe's Ribworks! The ribs were excellent with great flavor and cooked to perfection! We stayed for Friday night music and dancing and all around had a great time! We were a large group and servers kept up with us no problem! I highly recommend it!
