I've enjoyed immensely the perfect juicy brisket and a well seasoned side of green beans / shitake mushrooms. My first time at this gem in the bay. To top it all unique views, art and awesome music bands. I'm afraid to tell many folks about it ..... for sure a magical destination ?

This spot is truly a gem. From the entry, you can tell this place has so much character and is a community driven spot. The food and live music is brilliant and the staple, but the lighted railroad tie walking path and all of the sculptures makes this place even more special. I had the brisket and a great beer. Can't go wrong! Definitely a must visit and remember there is a curfew on departure. That's how you know it's a community! Very cool.

This place is amazing. As I munched on my brisket and gazed at the water, I felt as if cheerful mermaids were tickling my feet with feathers. Really the entire experience was so lovely. Everything was run very well, you choose your meat, you choose your sides, you choose your drink, you pays your money and you sit down and enjoy the glorious view. What could be better? You are in paradise! There is even a gift/vintage shop if you crave further diversion.

Tater Tots

Me and my son ordered the plain tater tots (as opposed to the loaded tots), and were blown away. We kept eating them past the point of being full, because they tasted better than any we've EVER tasted. On top of that, the bowl was huge, capable of feeding two people and a wonderful value for the price!

1 Meat, 2 Sides

Rack of Ribs, geeens, cornbread, cowboy beans, kale salad all were tasty and flavorful! W ate about 3-4 of our food and we're pleasantly full!!! Friendly staff and patrons... live music and sweeping views of San Pablo bay make this a must revisit !!! Hopefully on a weekend with more live music! John Lawton was on the Mike with his excellent guitar stylings and original songs made this a keeper!!! Also can't wait to try th other restaurant!!! Impressive cleanup oof this historical whaling port!!! We will be back!!!

Pulled Pork Sandwich

This place is incredible! It's a destination for sure but between the bay views and the delicious food, it's the perfect spot for an adventurous date! There was live music when we were there which added to the magical-ness. But most importantly the food is the best bbq in the bay!

Pulled Pork Sandwich

Nestled away in the hillside of Richmond, black star BBQ offers an adventure and beautiful views before you even reach the venue. Once you get closer to the harbor, you're greeted by goats, chickens, and giant art pieces that are random and delightful. They offer BBQ and drinks and a cute bohemian ambiance that will charm anyone who visits on a sunny day. Be sure to bring layers just in case it gets windy!
