Being from the county we have visited Briquettes a few times. This last visit was the best by far. Arrived on a late Saturday afternoon before the dinner rush. No waiting and the servers was great and very on spot about explaining the beer selection for the evening. My husband and I shared the ribs and chicken. The ribs are... More

Started with wine for me in a perfect wine glass. Hubby had a beer. I decided to get ribs. I really appreciate that they offer a 1/3 rack because I am a small eater. They were excellent. They do not come with sauce as you can put on your own. They were so good as served that I forgot all... More

This was the first that I ate here. There wer about twenty of us there lunch. We called shortly before going there and they were able to accommodate us. I had the turkey reuben sandwitch which was delicious. As far drinks they had an extensive beer slection. The service was exceptional. I would definitely go there again.

Briquettes is an eclectic,youthful, and trendy restaurant which caters to all ages. The staff seems to have fun working together which contributes to the relaxing atmosphere. The food is great and very reasonably priced. My favorites are the ribs, baked beans and corn bread. I have never been disappointed.

Stopped for lunch. Brisket was a little dry and not hot enough to melt the cheese. But over all it was good. The atmosphere was clean and comfortable while still being hip and trendy. Staff was very courteous and friendly and enjoyed listening to Zeppelin while eating. Will definitely go back for another experience.

I have been going to Briquettes for 3 Years and when they moved across the street I feel like they lost a lot. Which is disappointing. The food seemed a 3 now than of what it used to be. I feel the service is sometimes good some day and bad others. I love their Brunswick stew and cornbread and the... More

Had dinner last evening and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. Ate a great pastrami sandwich made my way and my wife had BBQ ribs she typically doesn't eat and loved them. Andrew the server was friendly, knowledgable and attentive; and knows the beer selection without a doubt. Very comfortable environment like a neighborhood pub with everyone... More

Have been to this restaurant several times. Food is always consistently good. I would recommend the reuben and the turkey reuben. Prices are very reasonable portions are generous. Love the atmosphere of the place it is perfect for the type of restaurant and location of the restaurant. I will be back soon!

My husband and I love Briquettes. However, I don't always want BBQ. My favorite was the fish melt. I visited on 10/16 and it was off the menu. Replaced with a tuna salad melt. I do not order tuna salad anywhere. I haven't been back. I guess I will have to wait until I want BBQ.
