I just recently completed 2 visits to Brunswick BBq & Brew due to a Groupon glitch. The first visit was on a Saturday, when they exclude Groupon use, and the second time was to use the Groupon before it expired. I want so much to like this place, but there are things that keep getting in the way and are... More

We were incredibly disappointed with the food. The ribs were overly charred, dry and tough. I am not convinced they were not left over from last night and reheated. DISGUSTING!! The barbecue sauce was not impressive. The sides of coleslaw and beans were equally as disappointing. Not worth the money. Sad to say Dinosaur - a chain - has far... More

We have been here a handful of times in the past few months, mostly to hear local bands and to have drinks/desserts. Small place to dance, which is fun. I guess we assumed it was just a BBQ place (because of its name) and my husband and I don't eat meat out. One of our recent trips we noticed they... More

We are actually frequent customers and the service is always slow, which is so disappointing because the food is great. On our last (and probably final) visit My husband and I were seated by the very nice hostess, In the dinning room with one other couple who were ordering drinks when we sat. After 2 more groups were seated after... More

After visiting Brunswick BBQ & Brew twice, we chose it as the venue for the rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding in August. With a lot of out-of-town guests attending, we had 48 adults and two children at the dinner. The food and the service were outstanding. The weather cooperated and we were able to use the patio, which suited... More

We eat here every time we visit our daughter, who lives in Brunswick. The food is great and the service is always friendly. We're looking forward to our next trip and eating at the Brunswick BBQ & Brew.

Dinner and drinks, had the chicken corn chowder, which was really quite good except it needed pepper or hot sauce for zip. A liberal application of both was good. Also ordered the dozen or two dozen steamed clams on special for $5 which came with lemon wedge and better and were Yum. We lingered over dinner ( which arrived promptly,... More

The barbecued meat itself was good, and we thought it was authentic. However, we don't think it was prepared today; the cornbread was straight from the fridge and the pulled pork was not warmed through. The room was cold as well, but not enough to chill the food that quickly! The baked beans were not homemade and very bland. The... More

Someone recommended Brunswick BBQ to me a week or so ago. While out on a motorcycle ride, decided to stop in for dinner. It's 6:00 pm on a Saturday night, several cars in parking lot. After riding all day, we were hungry and ready for some great BBQ. The parking lot looked fairly busy - to our surprise there were... More

I was there at 6pm on a tuesday and there were only a handful of customers. Had a nice cold Weissbeir at $5 a pint and ordered a mushroom pizza to go. I asked for extra sauce, yet the sauce itself was so bland I could barely taste it anyway. There was an absence of flavor and spices and if... More
