We ate here for dinner. Our waitress Samantha was very attentive. I had coffee for a beverage, and now it is rare to get refills on non alcoholic beverages, but she kept my coffee topped off through the whole meal. My husband and I both had meals from the specials board and they were delicious. They seem to specialize in... More

Stopped in here on our drive from Quebec City to Boston, and had a really nice meal. The service was friendly and prompt (we were there mid-afternoon and had the restaurant to ourselves), and the food was very good. We started with the hush puppies (absolutely delicious and different), husband and brother had the pulled pork sandwich, sister in law... More

My wife and I ate dinner at this BBQ restaurant. We split the BBQ sampler. Ribs--very fatty. Good smoke flavor. BBQ chicken --best meat we had. Smokey flavor, moist. Pulled pork--dry and tasteless. Smoked sausage --good and spicy. Slaw --good. Baked BBQ beans--probably good several days ago when they were fresh. Now, one step from refried beans. Bad. Cornbread was... More

We needed a place for dinner in Augusta and, after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, chose Riverfront BBQ. Hungry and travel worn, we arrived early on a Friday night, trying to beat the dinner rush. We were greeted with a smile (so welcome on such a long, dreary and rainy day) and seated. Between us, we sampled the ribs, brisket,... More

I decided to come here for lunch while at a work training. I thought this a better option than going to a chain like panera or chipotle. This please was very busy for lunch. Even so the service was excellent and speedy. The food came out within 10 minutes of ordering. They messed up one order and after telling them... More

On the way to Bar Harbor we stopped here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon, it's a good spot. Easy parking in their lot adjacent but plenty of street parking as downtown was pretty much empty. Good selection of Maine beers offered and a couple of Maine wines by the glass. Our server was kind enough to offer a small... More

From the moment you approach, you can smell the feature attraction. Wood smoke perfumes the air and whets your appetite. Surprisingly, the BBQ menu is relatively limited, but there are tons of non-BBQ choices. The BBQ brisket was good, and the cornbread is outstanding. They offer pickled onion rings...a unique take on the standard. Service is prompt and friendly. Definitely... More

My husband and I were looking for someplace 'different ' to eat while picking up a piece of furniture in Augusta. We found Riverfront Barbecue on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try even though it ranked #10. Upon entering we were greeted by a warm & friendly waitress. The atmosphere is inviting, having a balanced decor of contemporary... More
