The food and service have gotten so much better though since they opened and have gotten in their groove. It may surprise you but I recommend the smoked turkey in the big salad. Healthy and delish. It's a smokehouse so stick with the relative food choices. The oysters and other nice oddities outside a BBQ place are inconsistent.

Service was good food was average of what you come to expect for a BBQ joint. Nothing great or nothing bad, just an average BBQ dinner for us.

....when someone in my party, family or friends, suggest going here. I've never had a meal here that was even remotely good no matter what I order. I admit that I'm picky, but this pushes my pickyness out of the picture, bc whenever I go to a restaurant and don't like my main order, I CAN be perfectly satisfied on... More

Great atmosphere inside especially if you are a SEC fan! The food was great, from the turkey, chicken, sausage, brisket, ribs, mac and cheese, and fried green tomatoes... What's not to love?

A menu change can be a good thing- esp if you decide to consolidate and serve more fresh and homemade menu items. The menu has definitely shrunk at East River but the quality of the items has either remained the same or (in most cases) gotten worse. It appears that East River has allowed their food distributor to take control... More

We ate on a Sunday around lunch time. Our sandwiches were cold and so we're the fries. I also got Mac and cheese and it was clearly microwaved store bought Mac and cheese. Another negative about the sandwich was the bun, it was also cold and not fresh.

I ordered the ribs and they were very tender and flavorful. Easily accommodated our party of 10. A little noisy but still an enjoyable experience.
