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

Decent place for a casual dinner of BBQ and all the fixin's. Good atmosphere...very friendly, prompt service...but they could improve the dinnerware and cutlery. One of us at the the table was even given a plastic fork! Maybe it's just me...but when I'm in a restaurant, I prefer not to eat off of paper in plastic baskets. Good place to... More

New location, new decor, great food for a good price! The only thing is that the entrance and waiting area is very small.

I can't say enough good about it...although I have only ordered the same thing-3 meat combo with coleslaw and beans...it is so good that I never want to order... More

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
