    Smokey & flavorful with Dogfish Head on tap. Sit outside by the water during the warmer months & be thankful for the wet naps that come at the end of your meal.

    Everything on the menu is a winner, but if I had to recommend one single dish, it'd be the fried green tomatoes either as an appetizer, a meal, or to share with friends! Best BBQ in the Northeast!

    Excellent BBQ...Be sure to try ALL their sides because each one is awesome! Great draft beer selection also. Also, service is always fast & courteous! Overall, an excellent place for BBQ!

    Great beer, great service and great food. And amazing views of the river is the cherry on top. Can't go wrong here. Try their ribs or brisket.

    The family platter is the way to go. Too much food for four people (hello leftovers!). Feeds six perfectly.

    Great place right on the water an true to the Dino BBQ chain. Other local BBQ exists that rivals the quality. Dino has the beer list and energy though.

    Try the wings. I love wings fried but they smoke their wings and then grill them. Seriously the best wings I have ever had. Awesome

    The BBQ Prime Rib is only available through catering and worth the upgrade in fee. If you are in the restaurant have the Cajun Catfish with BBQ Rice.

    Their Mac & cheese is definitely not holding a candle to silvias in Harlem..ribs could b better..smokey joes in lake George tops these ribs..and the sides are bigger up there

    View of the Hudson right outside the dining table windows. Make sure you try their Mac & Cheese, it's the best.

    If you came with friends and arent in the mood for BBQ, the Bronzed Catfish is some of the best soul food in the 518.

    Eat on the deck for a great view of the river. The pulled pork is great, but the brisket is to die for.
