What a nice place to go for a meal, quick service, good selection of food, they need a signature drink, but alot of choices available. They had outdoor seating but it was cold and raining when we were there.

Tina, glad to hear the food was on point and that our runner was in good spirits, but there is no excuse for us showing you anything less than enthusiastic hospitality. A bit of complacency creeps in every year about this time when the summer...More

The restaurant is located in a quaint area next to a draw bridge. There are some unique shops around the corner so the area is worth a trip off the interstate. We ate at Briquettes for lunch. The waitress arrived wearing a t-shirt for “Fatheads”...More

I ate alone after 2 meetings in the area. Prices seem a little high but if the quality is good it’s worth it. My 3 meat meal was very good. I didn’t need sauce as the meat was seasoned well and flavorful. The brisket was...More

I would say that you should not have a problem. As for making reservations, I asked once and was told that they not take them. Enjoy the food and the views.
