Midwest Living Review

The tangy sauce and smoky flavors here bring Memphis barbecue to the Upper Mississippi.

If you're looking for authentic barbecue, this little place certainly has the right ambience: It's one step above a simple little river shack, with a screened-in porch, sitting alongside the railroad tracks and overlooking the Mississippi's Lock and Dam #4. Its menu is what you're looking for in a barbecue joint, too, featuring pulled pork, rib and brisket platters. (About $8, including two sides.) Meats are hand-rubbed and slow smoked, served with a choice of four homemade sauces. For nonbarbecue lovers, the beer-battered perch and catfish platters hold promise. Pier 4 also does a booming breakfast business. Its German potato pancakes get good reviews; so does the smokehouse omelet ($7.75), which comes spiced with Pier 4's signature barbecue sauce.
