A LITTLE ABOUT US

PROUDLY SERVING LOW AND SLOW BBQ & CERTIFIED ANGUS BEEF

"1924"...Since 1924...Four Generations...The Codichini family has been serving exceptional food, drink and hospitality to the Tri-State Area and beyond, from California to Maine, friends and customers from every US state and beyond. From 1924 to 2011 we proudly served our drink and food fare at a local Port Jervis, NY watering hole known as Gino's Tavern & Restaurant where blue collar workers, rich, famous, politicians and friends met on a daily basis..... "2011" Gino's Tavern and Restaurant ended and met it's fate being bought by a surrounding utility company and torn down. After a two year hiatus then owners Rich and Mary Codichini (third generation owners) purchased a Ice Cream and Hot Dog Stand in Pond Eddy, NY and put their spin on it making it a restaurant which is not only a BBQ Joint & Steakhouse with Bar & Grill but also offers a little Cajun and Italian fare as well. A Seasonal Restaurant located on the Upper Delaware River Scenic Byway, Route 97 in Pond Eddy, NY.  Motorcycle magazines cite Route 97 as being one of the best riding roads in the Northeast. A scenic corridor winding through the world famous Hawks Nest drive then along the Delaware River with Eagles  flying overhead and some of the best trout and small mouth bass fishing in the country. White Water Rafting, Canoeing, Kayaking and Camping on the Delaware  are also very popular attractions on the river with single day or multi-day river trips. Call ahead and we will do our best to furnish you with the correct information that suits your needs. And don't forget Bethel Woods Summer Concert Series with some of the best musical artists and bands in the country. Stop by on the way to your concert or river trip or call ahead and pickup the Best BBQ or Takeout Food and Beverage for your tailgate party or memorable trip. We also have a weekly drawing for lunch or dinner for two drawn every Sunday. Leave your name and phone number on a copy of your guest check and you could be the next winner.
