Ashtabula, Ohio sits on the shore of Lake Erie, about 15-mi. west of the Pennsylvania border. And Briquettes Smokehouse sits on Bridge Street in Ashtabula's quaint, restored, shoreside historic district. Twice on our east-west travels we've jumped off I-90 onto Rt.11 and visited Briquettes for lunch and dinner. On both occasions the food was very good, the staff was friendly,... More

Good value for the money, food was tasty. Great expansive craft beer menu. Server was friendly. In a nice location to stop by a few local shops while you're in town.

Day number eight of our Circle Lake Erie trip: Leaving Geneva on the Lake about 4:15, we drove another ten miles to our hotel, near Ashtabula - the hometown of a friend from my days in the Army. (Unfortunately Steve hasn’t lived here in many, many years.) After resting up a bit, we went for dinner. We chose one of... More

Today I took 13 ladies to Briquettes for a lunch following our visit to many of Ashtabula's covered bridges. The staff was very accommodating with our groups arrival times (we arrived one carload at a time) and the service was outstanding from all of the front-of-the-house staff. Frederick was our server and he was helpful, timely, and courteous. Having brought... More

My family ate here for lunch durning the sea glass festival. The service was exceptional and very accommodating. Everyone at our table loved the meat dishes however I am vegetarian and didn't find very many healthy vegetarian foods. The restaurant did make a nice salad to try and meet my needs.

Took my wife and 4 young boys in for dinner. Seating was easy for a family. Service was outstanding and was only out done by the quality of the food. Great bbq ribs and plenty of comfort food...Mac and cheese, pork n beans, corn bread. Thid place is a must, in s great location in Ashtabula.

Although locals may enjoy this place, I was embarrassed to suggest that I take my folks to real BBQ on my first trip home in years. The reviews were good. I will qualify this with my love and spoiling at Salt Lick in Texas, so I know good BBQ. This was not. I will not further despoil meat quality and... More

Seannamolly, Thank you for the candid review. It looks like your visit was in September of last year, and I am not one for making excuses, but I will say that we had several key members of our staff on leave at the time of your visit due to some horrific and heartbreaking circumstances. I am aware that the staff... More
