This place has been solid for a long time. The barbecue is really good - if you've got a craving, this will do just fine. Fun atmosphere, nice service. Recommended.

Love the food (especially the hard to find beef ribs). The bar is the perfect place to catch a Sox or Bruins game. Fun atmosphere. Laura and the other bartenders are wicked friendly. Waitstaff in the restaurant section seems somewhat transient and lack the experience and ease that the bartenders consistently demonstrate. I recommend pulling up to the bar, having... More

Village Smokehouse was a real treat. Located in a neat little area of Brookline, the meal beat all my expectation. The baby backs with very tender, with a delicious bark and perfect sauce. The baked beans were just sweet enough and completely wonderful. Typically the corn one gets in a BBQ joint is of the water logged, super soggy variety... More

All I need to say is that it was a Monday night and we had to wait for table. The place was busy but the short wait was well worth it. We got a table close the grill and watched food being prepared, which is a bit of a show in itself with the flames that were being created. The... More

on my regular list of restaurants. my philosophy on restaurants is that most have only a few premium menu options, and for this restaurant, I believe their babyback ribs are the best in town. they fall off the bone and the sauce is great. no better place in boston. also, the atmosphere is great with great selections of country music...

My friend and I were newbies to the place but were pleased with the laid back environment and it's also very family oriented and kid-friendly as well. The food was good (we both enjoy pub appetizers which were delicious). Price was good too on both the drinks and the food - and wasn't a long wait to eat either. The... More

We went to the Village Smokehouse in Brookline after a Red Sox playoff game on Oct 4. Yes the Sox won and as we all know went on to win the World Series. A little off track but after the watery beer and doughy pretzles at Fenway it was fantastic to enter the Smokehouse and see real food being prepared... More

This is a restaurant with tons of personality. Service is always A+. I love the margaritas, too. I am a margarita crafter and connoisseur, so I can assure you, the ones offered here are worth their salt. Try the Mae West. As for the food, while this place is not, say, on par with Blue Ribbon in West Newton, it... More
