We stopped for lunch after church on Sunday and loved the new location! The whole patio is very attractive! Our lunch- the 3 meat combo and a bbq brisket - were both really good!! We enjoyed great service and love the new location with outside dining right on the river . We also enjoyed watching and smelling the smokers going... More

We were driving thru Ashtabula this afternoon and stopped near this pub/eatery. It was a nice, sunny day and there was outside seating. The place looked interesting so we took a seat outside. The server came to our table and warned us that the "bees" we're pretty bad, and as soon as our drinks, food came, they would congregate by... More

I have eaten at Briquettes at both the new and old location. The food is good, and the view of the river at their new location is nice. One of Ashtabula's gems.

Stopped here for lunch. Sat at the bar on the third floor. Best seat in the house, great view of the bridge. Beer on tap was great, ordered ribs, and they were very good. Half rack was just perfect for lunch. Service was excellent.

Had a lunch break while on a cross country bike trip. Amazing pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw and roasted veggies. Good beer menu and enjoyed the baked pretzels. Really nice building and excellent service. I'd go back!!

We had lunch outside on the patio with classmates and later in the week had dinner inside on the 2nd floor with family. This is a casual dining facility with great food, great view of the river with its sail boats passing under the raised historic bascule bridge, and fun place to meet family and friends and never feel like...

Went to Ashtabula on sight seeing excursion and this was one of the higher rated places to eat. Had great view of inlet and neat older building with outdoor seating. We chose second floor because of view of the neat draw bridge out front. Chose a kind of sampler of 3 meats and add'l plate with two extra sides. All... More

Atmosphere is excellent! Drinks excellent! Food better than average but not as good as I expected from people I know who have eaten here. Because the prices are good I can overlook the quality of the food, which is just fine.

Thank Shelley B
