We are not picky eaters, I'll say that to start. The wings were ok, but the food came out cold. All of it. It tasted as if everything had been frozen and re heated. Such a disappointment for $50 not including a tip. There aren't many options here in Brunswick and we wouldn't be in a hurry to come back.... More

Came here for the ribs and we were not disappointed. Great cornbread as well. Atmosphere is "rustic," clearly a place favored by the locals. The evening we were there, they were also hosting an open celtic music jam in one of the back rooms. Great for the atmosphere and service to the neighborhood.

I drove by this place two months ago and thought it looked appealing from the outside. as it's a half-hour out of the way, my brother-in-law and I finally tried it last night. What a disappointment! There were only six or so beers on tap, and not a single dark ale. Whoopee. We both got the beef brisket, which was... More

It had been five years since we were last here. I recall trying to stop in for lunch once with some retired buddies a couple of years ago, but they do not open until 5 pm. This being a Saturday evening in March, about 6 pm, we figured it would be quite busy. But we were astonished to see only... More

By far the best barbeque restaurant I have ever been. Their pulled pork is phenomenal. They have a superb beer selection as well. And, surprisingly, an incredible pizza.

The Brunswick barbecue and Brew is a hidden gem in the Capital Region. The meat is lean and tender and the sauces are delicious. Their signature "Pink Sauce" is really something special- sweet and spicy and just the right amount of sticky. The portion are huge and the sides are delicious. They have delicious unique pizza also! Its a local... More

I just recently completed 2 visits to Brunswick BBq & Brew due to a Groupon glitch. The first visit was on a Saturday, when they exclude Groupon use, and the second time was to use the Groupon before it expired. I want so much to like this place, but there are things that keep getting in the way and are... More

We were incredibly disappointed with the food. The ribs were overly charred, dry and tough. I am not convinced they were not left over from last night and reheated. DISGUSTING!! The barbecue sauce was not impressive. The sides of coleslaw and beans were equally as disappointing. Not worth the money. Sad to say Dinosaur - a chain - has far... More

We have been here a handful of times in the past few months, mostly to hear local bands and to have drinks/desserts. Small place to dance, which is fun. I guess we assumed it was just a BBQ place (because of its name) and my husband and I don't eat meat out. One of our recent trips we noticed they... More
