Had a taste for BBQ so I ordered the small pulled pork plate with potato salad and red slaw. It was all delicious. The BBQ was moist and tasty. Potato salad and slaw complimented the BBQ.

We had lunch on the deck on a lovely afternoon, overlooking the river. Nice view of river. We split The Judge between 2 of us. The pork was pretty good, the ribs were very hard to get the meat off the bone and the chicken was ok. It wasn't that bus. The parking lot was completely full, but we don't know where people were, there was lots of empty tables on a Sunday at lunch. Service was very slow, but we saw better service at other tables. The deck could use some cleaning of spider webs. It was a disappointment, places with a nice water view are hard to find. If we returned I would just stick to the BBQ pork.

I visited Judge's with a group. We had reservations and were seated promptly on the porch when we arrived with an excellent view of the river. The onion rings are made on the premises and are excellent and recommended as is the smoked half chicken which was tender and flavorful. Large salad bar. Service at one table in our group was a little slow.

Late lunch on labor day. Had to wait a few min. but not bad. Food was great, but could have used more staff. We had fish-n-chips, brisket sandwich, and pulled pork sandwich. Everyone happy and full.
