Great ribs!

My family and I celebrated my son's birthday at the Smokehouse a couple of weeks ago and the ribs were wonderful. We had both the baby back and beef ribs and both were amazing. We opted to get the "full rack" (for only $2.00 extra) so that we had some to take home. With so much snow this year... read more

My friend took me here for my birthday and it was a wonderful choice! Good food, great vibe, cool area. When looking over the menu, initially I was going to choose the baby back pork ribs, but decided on their insane meat delight o'loves: The Texas Hawg. Shameless - I was the damn hawg - it was soooo worth ordering... More

Don't think about it - just do it! Book Village Smokehouse for your next party...you won't be sorry. Alan provides not only the most flavorful, lip-smackingly delicious food, he serves it up professionally and with lots of charm. He and his daughter are a crack-team - arriving early, setting up quickly/efficiently, providing everything you need - entrees, sides, condiments, paper... More

This place is a cute casual restaurant that have all kind of Barbecue food that is very good. I especially like the Ribs and Chicken. Do visit when in Brookline. They also do takeout if in a hurry.

It's hard to get beef ribs in Boston, so the Village Smokehouse is a favorite. The helpings are very generous and the sides are also good. There can be a wait.

Met a friend for dinner here last night. We had a wait for our friend, but were seated right away. We ordered appetizers: BBQ Egg Roll and Onion Rings. The Onion Rings were very tasty and the rings did not slip out of their coating (huge for me). The main meal was exceptionally tasty: Spare tips, BBQ chicken and brisket.... More

Took the T outbound to get a steak at a more reasonable price. A quick ride from Back Bay to Brookline did the trick. The Smokehouse was less than two blocks from the station. Steaks are cooked on the grill that is open to the eating area and next to the bar. Nice family atmosphere and obviously a local standard.... More

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
