Picture of beauty and service at Mumbles BBQ Restaurant

The Help

And the smiles good too! Truly a smile to launch a thousand riverboats. To get a closer look, place the mouse pointer over the image. It’s always great to visit a place where everyone enjoys what they do. While investigating I could see how much the people enjoyed Mumbles, customers, employees, everyone. So if you’re sad, remember what my mother always told me, "there’s nothing a plate full of ribs can’t fix!" Or maybe, "ribs are good for the soul."


The view

To get a better look of the riverfront view, you’ll need to come here and eat next to the big window and see for yourself. Sitting here you are literally a stones through away from the Ohio River.






The pure rumor about Bud Light Tank No 2 may or may not involve Jimmy Hoffa, a secret CIA plot about a Russian submarine, or that time a Russian submarine almost fired a nuclear missile at the U.S. during the Cuban missile crisis. Another rumor might be that there is a secret contest for the most elaborate rumor about Bud Light Tank No 2. When you stop in for BBQ, tell them your story and be sure and ask them about the real story.


Big Screen TV

Watching television while eating barbeque spare ribs by hand is always good.





Magical Mystery

Some people are afraid of this mysterious magic box on the wall. Don’t be afraid to put a dollar in it, it’s a juke box, and you can scroll through the selection for songs. A five dollar bill will play 18 of your favorite songs, some classic, some more recent. Check it out! It’s there for your entertainment and general purpose all around amusement for everyone.

From a distance it looks like $500 gets 18 songs, which might explain why people are afraid to get too close. But you got to get closer to see that’s only $5 on the screen.

Don’t be afraid to put money in the mystery box.



Always remember, when dining for the finest barbeque money can buy here at Mumbles BBQ Restaurant having the proper BBQ eating attitude is important.

Enjoy life with a plate full of ribs.



Park in style, as this shop has their own parking lot.


A sneak peek at the view which overlooks the Ohio River. Now that you’ve seen the preview, you’ve got to see the whole show. I also recommend enjoying a good walk along the river after eating. That way I can pretend eating here is part of my exorcise regimen.
