I am reluctant to give negative reviews, but this place needs to shape up. Maybe it was the tail-end of the shift for the kitchen and wait staff. But nothing seemed to go right. 30 minutes after our order went to the kitchen ... Grilled chicken salad was delivered as limp greens, blackened chicken salad. Quarter chicken plate was forgettable.... More

We were lucky to discover this place after an 8 hour drive and a Google search, and decided to try it even though it was not even mentioned on the trip advisor top 10 restaurants in Augusta. Let me just say we had the best Memphis style ribs I have had ANYWHERE on the eastern seaboard. Perfectly seasoned and smoked,... More

I had the pulled pork with veggies on the side - no bun. This is a great low carb option. The pulled pork was tender, with none of the big clothes of fat that you often get in other places. The sauce was perfect - spicy, but no too. The vegetables were a nice mix of sautéed and spiced. Service... More

We stopped here for lunch on our trip thru Maine. Service was friendly although a bit slow (I would have given this place a 5). The food was worth the wait. I had the best chicken quesadilla! Very tex-mex. Hugh portions with a pool of sour cream and fresh salsa. My husband's burger was really good and came with very... More

We stop by for an early dinner at Riverfront. We had delicious pulled pork on corn bread & a Caesar salad. Large portions & attentive waitresses. The ambiance was great. Highly recommend this place.

Nice to find an bbq in the north. Waitress' very friendly and great service. The dry BBQ pulled pork was ok - but a very small amount on the bun with half the bun exposed. Heaping portion of great seasoned fries BUT the BBQ sauce was tasteless. If I went again, I would bring my own sauce

Showed up late on a Friday night and was surprised that the place was not as busy as it was. I had the crab cakes appetizers and the catfish special which were prepared excellently. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone

My wife and one of my sons gathered here for dinner because it was halfway for all of us. Went here on the strength of the online reviews and so glad we did! From start to finish, this was A+ food and service. Our waitress was terrific: Friendly, outgoing, funny and engaging. The food was a-mazing! The portions were incredible!... More

Walked in late but everyone is welcoming with introduction and a smile. The setting is relaxing with modified church pews, candles and slow jazz. The food is quite good and order comes out quickly. High mark for a good late night dinner. Easy street parking and is a nice area to walk around, down to the waterfront for some history... More
