I never comment on other travels comments in trip advisor but the 2 folks that said the food was crummy and sucked/horrible have to be related to the east river BBQ's competition. Enough said. Great location. Great service. The best BBQ We have ever had and we are very well travelled. Cold beer. Reasonable prices. Great service. Stop here! Safe... More

Cool looking building, crummy food. Hubby had ribs said they tasted like ham!! Too cured!!! Tried grilled shrimp, specifciallly asked if they were blackened(did not want), waitress said no. Came to the table full of cayenne. Complained to waitress, her response well sometimes they get heavy handed with the seasoning. Did she not hear me ask???? Won't be back there... More

Large family friendly place with lots of big tables and plenty of outdoor seating. Staff were helpful and attentive. We had apps of pork balls (greatness) and fried pickles (addictive). House specialty is pork ribs and they do them well with a spicy sauce. Brisket was a bit dry but that's common anywhere but central Texas (yes, I'm from the... More

Would not recommend anyone stopping to eat here. BBQ is terrible and staff is just as bad. Pass on this one and find another place to eat.

This is a great restaurant. The view was beautiful and peaceful, we went at sunset. I had the seafood pasta and it was delicious, well worth the price considering the quality and quantity. My daughter had the pulled pork sandwich and said it was the best she's had. All the employees were polite and quick. Will definitely be back on... More

Every rest has it's "signature dishes". In my opinion, (after eating here over 15 times), the smoked wings and ribs are the reason to go. Not to mention the back deck- which is a great place to have a cold brew. If you go- GET the Wings and Ribs! You won't be sorry.

the restaurant is beautifully done with a wooden deck and railing. Bands play almost every night for some great entertainment. Service was very friendly and quick. Oh and the have the best jungle punch around town. The drinks come in little buckets, and you get to keep the buckets. Overall it's a great place to hang out at after a... More

We have visited this restaurant during our vacation twice, 2015 and 2016! The portions are big and our service was superb. Try the ribs, the meat just falls off the bone.

I am not going to say this place is bad but it is definitely average. What takes it up a notch is the view on the waterfront, the ability to eat outside and friendly service. We are from St. Louis so we have an abundance of award winning BBQ places. It's hard to top the places in STL so we... More
