Recently visited with friends and family. The food was the best in the city, and the atmosphere was even better. Service was excellent and will definitely return to have another great time. If you are passing through this is a must stop for a great time.

Briquettes Smokehouse gets my recommendation for the BEST "go-to, gotta get some AWESOME BBQ" in the region! GREAT service, beautiful setting, good beer selection and the best dang slow-smoked BBQ on the North Coast! Their Brunswick stew is so good, you'll want two helpings!

Would highly recommend this... More

Just an outstanding BBQ place with many extras. Good nite life place, full bar and outstanding, and I mean outstanding beer selection - it rivals Leppin Lizard's beer selection. Great food, great staff, great beer!

Got take-out from Briquettes for today's Browns game. It was GREAT! We got pulled pork sandwiches, mac & cheese and Brunswick Stew. When we eat here, their food is always great. So was today's takeout. They have great food and we always look forward to our next visit. Can't go wrong.

The Brunswick stew is delicious and I love to add the cheese, onions, and sour cream a delicious topping. Their desserts are good as well.

The Brunswick stew was great, especially on a cold windy day. Good beer selection on tap. Bar aqua was so so.

The food here holds its own against great barbecue anywhere. The ribs are outstanding and the unique twist on chili is fabulous. Try the collard greens--spicy and loaded with crisp bacon. Nice selection of craft beers with three rotating drafts.
