“Look out Longhorn!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Briquette's Steakhouse is by far the best steakhouse in Mobile!! It is locally owned and you can tell that the owners and staff believe in their restaurant and care about its customers. The prime rib melts in your mouth and the garlic mashed potatoes are to die for!! The ceasar salad has a "bite" to it so be warned!! I would (and have) recommended this place to anyone. Briquette's never disappoints.

“Pleasantly surprise on how delicious everything we had was!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

First of all this place is so good it will have to expand within a year. We eat at Longhorns or Outback at least once a week, not anymore. The steaks were better, the onion rings were really good, the baked oysters ( according to my husband) were excellent. It was just a really nice surprise to go into a new place and have such Great food. They also have specials also that we will try in the future. Prices compare to other eating establishments but it appears the special are a really good deal.
Try it you will not be disappointed!!!

“Usually delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We eat at Briquettes every time we are in Mobile which is at least every quarter. In fact in the past we have eaten there more than once per mobile trip because we have enjoyed the food so much. The restaurant opened about 6 to 8 months ago. This past trip (last wk) we ate there but I cannot say the food was consistently good. We ate there twice for dinner with friends and family. The filet was very good. The bone in ribeye was not good- stringy meat and way too salty. On a second occasion again the filet was good but the prime rib was too well done. The vegetables on a skewer were not cooked very well. Service seems to be consistently good. We have come to the conclusion that when they are busy the kitchen simply cannot keep up. We will eat there again but it is sad that you are not assured of a consistent experience.

“just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

had to ask for drink refills, food was okay but nothing to get excited about. Prices were average but I do not like when a restaurant includes 18% gratuity on my tab especially when the wait staff did not earn it. Probably won't go back.

“Excellent for lunch as well.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Go there for business lunches. Always get the prime rib sandwich. The best I've ever had. The meat is very fresh and tender. I've been here for dinner as well. Not a disappointment. Not the best steak I've ever had, but no-one can do a steak as good as you can do yourself on your own grill, but still very good.
