The food was good. My cocktail was strong and delicious. The pulled pork was my favorite out of the small meat sampler.

Love the small outside patio. It is fun to sit at the bar and have dinner there. There is live music at times which makes it a fun place to be as well.

We really enjoyed our visit. The venue was built in an old warehouse and is right on the Hudson river. The food was delicious so were the cocktails and brews. We sat at the bar and our bartender was attentive informative and open to conversation.

Tried out Dinosaur BBQ for the first time. The place was busy when we arrived for dinner at about 6:30 pm. We were seated after a short wait and had a view of the Hudson River. Ordered a flight of beers, appetizers and our meals....More

I rarely give 5 stars and wouldn't normally for a bbq place but I think this place is deserving. We split a 2 meat combo with ribs and smoked chicken and both were superb. The corn side was superb and the greens were the best...More
