nice staff, great food, lots of adult beverage choices. Cornbread is excellent, has a hint of Jalapenos in it.

Food is good. Price is reasonable. Would prefer china and silverware to plastic - a real drawback. Outdoor patio in the summer, and right on the river channel into the lake. Can have long waits at peak times, especially in good weather.

Went here for lunch for the first time since they changed locations. Reuben was very good but they need to bring back their fish sandwich. Will definitely return.

I have been there twice on business. Nice atmosphere. Great beer selection. Friendly staff. The menu is limited. The food was ok, nothing spectacular. Maybe a larger menu would help. I would go back

We were there with another couple and the first surprise was the smoked ice tea, everyone in our party wrinkled their noses but I had to try it. It was great! I had a Rubin and the others had the pulled pork. The food was great and the waiter was very good. WE were there early for lunch but the... More

It's been a while, as we were previously disappointed here. This time we both had smoked turkey sandwiches. Very outstanding and great smokey flavor. We shared sides of coleslaw, a unique non-mayo flavorful delight, potato salad, nicely done , and baked beans (average..but better with added BBQ sauce) Service was very good. Since it was Saturday afternoon, this was one... More

Hi Tam, I appreciate the review, but I have a feeling you got the wrong location. We don't have many of the menu items you described and the other restaurants you mentioned I have never heard of. Did you meant to review Briquettes Smokehouse in Ashtabula, OH (that's us) or Briquettes Steakhouse in Alabama? We have no affiliation to the... More

My last review of Briquettes was very positive. Unfortunately, times have changed my opinion. Okay. I understand take out orders can get screwed up once in a while. But these guys are consistent at forgetting items. My friends ordered take out recently. The wife became very ill after eating. Signs of food poisoning. So, the next day, her husband returns...
