The Riverfront BBQ always serves quality food and the staff is friendly. Stop upstairs at The Gin Mill before your meal for a vast selection of beers, wines, liquor and listen to some great music in the most comfortable lounge. Always a great evening!

Took my family here recently ... food and service was excellent. Get the combo plate - it's a wonderful assortment of their best items. Dessert was inexpensive and great as well....beers on tap were a nice surprise ! Only opportunity was that the food was not served hot - just warm ....still..... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

The Riverfront Barbeque in Augusta serves up some tasty BBQ. It is right on Water Street and great parking close by (lot right next to restaurant). We recently had the combination plate: pulled pork and beef briskette (your choice of two meats. Other options included BBQ Beef and pulled chicken - if I remember correctly). You also got a choice of two sides: we had beans and french fries. Side were good but the meat was where it was at!!!

Bottom line - it was really tasty, portion size was nice, prices were reasonable and the service was prompt and courteous. What's not to like?!

This is very simple: the Ribs had great smoke and very tender/coming off the bone however they did not remove the silver skin and the spicing very lacking; the BBQ beans were very good; and my wife's meal really, really gross!! Very greasy bad tasting Calamari - just horribly un-crispy and tasting of anything but Calamari; she also ordered cheesy Hush-puppies (cheeseless mushpuppies), again horrible tasting cornmeal balls, and under cooked - the wife sent both things (thats what they were, things) back! Service on the other hand was courteous however additional training is required as far as priorities in seating and serving. Our Server however was understanding and professionally did not charge us for the returned items. We will not go back - we drove an hour to get there and were totally, and extremely dissapointed!

If you want to enjoy some really good BBQ you should try the Riverfront Barbeque in Augusta. It is right on Water Street and great parking close by. Recently I had to pulled pork plate with their corn bread which is excellent.
