In fairness to the restaurant, I have to say that we went there on a very busy day and were seated in the far corner, away from the kitchen and off the beaten path for the waitresses. Additionally, they were short handed with only two waitresses while the owner sat at the bar and did not help other than to... More

Nice BBQ and bar just outside of town. Special deals on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Good selection of local beers.

If you like your pork BBQ'd & Pulled, you gotta' visit Green River BBQ in historic Saluda, NC Ribs, beef brisket, and country-cooking sides that can't be beat! Wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly. This is a very "Family-Friendly" restaurant, where the portions are generous, and the prices are extremely reasonable.

I am southern through and through and eat Bar-B-Q when offered on menu. I even went her specifially beause its name specified it offered BarBQ. Really was not interested in the private lives of the residents of Saluda (most of which were not there to defend themselves). Only good to come of this visit was the opportunity to hear local...

It is a rather small place in Saluda. But the southern food is just awesome. Together with the cozy atmosphere and the just wonderful service, I felt like I was eating at a friends house. I love it.

Can't believe the good reviews for this place. My wife and I stopped in while passing through and though that by the number of people there that it would be good. Not at all the case, very low score on the chopped pork and sides, I got the tasteless green beans, not good creamed spinach, and shouldn't have ordered coleslaw.... More

Food was good but not fantastic. Service was great but busy for a small town. This is a local favorite but I've been spoiled by TN BBQ. I do recommmend that you try it for yourself. I may have just been off that day.

The wife and I stopped in for lunch while visiting Saluda, NC. There were only two women working, one of which was the bartender/waitress, and the other was the waitress/server. The place was fairly busy, and I thought we would be there for a while waiting for service and food. Wrong! We were waited on quickly and the food came... More
