Less than stellar restaurant/bar 26 Front Street was sold and will now be Billy Joe’s Ribworks. It’s scheduled to open January 10, 2011 and promises “the best in BBQ and live entertainment on the Newburgh Waterfront.” The restaurant will seat 250 guests and during summer months seat 500. The menu is focused on smokehoused meats, but will also give the option for non-smoked meats. “Great lengths” have been taken to keep this restaurant reasonably priced for the location. Ribworks is being offered as a family location for casual fun.
The website is impressive and there are already some events lined up for January. Live music will be played every Friday and Saturday night starting at 10pm in support of the local music community. Hiring has begun if any locals are looking. You can apply online at their website for employment. Call 845-565-3390 for more information.
