My ribeye was terrible and the ribs were just alright. Nothing special about this place, in my opinion. Did not live up to the hype.

I have gave this place 2 stars because I think it's over priced and the food was mediocre. Hotel staff recommended this restaurant to us. We ordered the Cajun Salmon dinner and the BBQ chicken and pork dinner. The Salmon was good but the BBQ chicken did not have a good texture and the sauce was just OK. The BBQ... More

The queen prime rib is by far the very best steak you will ever eat. The serving is more than you can eat. The sweet potato melts in your mouth as well. You will not be disappointed. Their baby back ribs are also incredibly good.

I took a group of 8 to Dirty Ernie's on September 4th, 2016. We were all pretty excited for some of their famous ribs/wings/bbq. I had the bbq pork. It came out so cold it needed to be reheated in the microwave. Our server had disappeared, so I had to carry my plate to the cashier and ask her to... More

Dirty Ernies has been around a long time and as the time passes the food has become more and more average.

We ate here after a day of rafting on the New River. As we're big fans of bbq we hit this place for dinner. Very casual inside, rustic to say the least. OK beer selection and the food was average. Wasn't the best bbq we've had but it wasn't bad either. They were out of brisket which was a disappointing,... More

I have to admit, the name Dirty Ernie's didn't really make me want to eat here, but my husband said the wings were good. The décor is interesting, nothing special, but unique. The service was great and our food was good. I'd go here again.

Awesome place to get together with friends, wonderful wait staff. The food is just meh ... not the best, not the worst. I ordered brisket, rather surprised when the first bite (as well as subsequent bites) was cold. Sweet potato was delicious without butter & brown sugar. Mixed drinks are a bit costly. We'll definitely go back, if only for... More
