Still solid BBQ menu. Place has been the same for years and its time for them to do something different or to reinvent themselves. I find it hard to keep coming back because it's just the same old, same old.

The Cookhouse restaurant is very appealing. The food they serve is very tasty. There are a wide variety of items to choose from. The baseball steak is quite delicious, as is the pulled pork sandwich.

Barbecue were OK but there are better ones in Connecticut. Pulled Pork and other fare was on the dry side and taste was just OK. I am used to very good Barabecue food so I am a little spoiled.

If you're in the mood for some great bbq, The Cookhouse has it. The ribs, the pulled pork, the brisket... it's all fantastic. The great atmosphere, great service and decent prices are even more reason to add thus place to your restaurant bucket list.

Overall The Cookhouse is a great option for BBQ in the area. Best choices are the ribs, brisket, and pulled pork. Decent atmosphere, service is a bit hit or miss, but overall pretty good. Family and all-you-can-eat dinner specials are great.

Three of us ate here on their all the bbq you can eat night(limited to several meats: ribs, chicken, pulled pork and brisket). I like them all, my spouse did not. Sort of split.
