Great food and great service. They smoke all of their meat themselves. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu

Tasty food combined with a fun, relaxed environment and great service! All the meat is smoked in the back, and you can enjoy local beers and the tasty smell of your cooking meal while you wait!

We were amazed with the high ceilings clad in tin tiles which highlighted the age of this historic building. We sought the advice of a local to visit Briquette's and we were not disappointed, however we were stuffed upon leaving. Our server was very attentive and our food was excellent. We started off with the smoked chicken nacho's, heaped with... More

This restaurant was really good. The chicken was great. The cornbread was moist and many varieties of sauce to put on your pork, chicken or beef. My husband was amazed at the brisquette.

My friends and I went here for dinner. Staff was friendly and the portions huge. The jalapeno cornbread wasn't too spicy, even for me. (I don't like spicy.) I had the 3 meat platter. Two of the three meats were the best I've ever had, and the pork wasn't bad but just too much. The baked apples were great the... More

Nothing like their smoked prime rib out there. Huge portions and that flavorful crust that only smoking gives a good cut of meat.

The interior is some of the oldest brick I've ever seen, but very clean. We stopped after seeing a rib grill sitting out front on the sidewalk area. The beers were very cold, reasonably priced but the Smoked Reuben was fantastic in flavor and size. My wife had the Turkey Melt and it was good as well. Service by Stuperman... More

This was our first visit to Bridge Street and HAD to stop in since they were cooking ribs on the sidewalk and the aromas drew us in. We shared their combo plate of pulled pork, brisket and chicken with their mac and cheese and brunswick stew. EVERYTHING was excellent!!! Just disappointed that I had to share it. On top of... More
