My last review of Briquettes was very positive. Unfortunately, times have changed my opinion. Okay. I understand take out orders can get screwed up once in a while. But these guys are consistent at forgetting items. My friends ordered take out recently. The wife became very ill after eating. Signs of food poisoning. So, the next day, her husband returns...

I was told it was one of the best restaurants in town. The smell was heavenly, and we were drawn in. While the food was not inappropriately priced, it was not a cheap meal. The barbecue was not outstanding. It was OK. They have a large patio which would be wonderful when the weather is right. I would not recommend... More

Stopped at Briquettes twice during our visit to Ashtabula. Our first visit was for lunch with friends. Being someone who does not consume meat, a BBQ joint is obviously not the best place to go for lunch. However, the house salad was fresh and crispy, no complaints. The mac-n-cheese ended up having what looked like shredded or chopped brisket so... More

The food was excellent and atmosphere welcoming. Enjoyed the view of the bridge from our table. Absolutely loved the brisket! Would recommend to anyone who enjoys bbq and wings. Definitely will eat here again.

We enjoyed our meal here - good food at reasonable cost. Have to laugh though - was told by the lodge front desk that we should go here for the great harbor views...absolutely not the case...

This came on a recommendation from someone else, and, boy, I owe that guy a drink. What a find! Briquettes sits right down on the Ashtabula waterfront, staring out at the river, boats and urban lakeside landscape (and we sat upstairs, looking right out at the water), and just off of historic Bridge Street. They have a sizable outdoors patio... More

My wife and I traveled to Notre Dame over the weekend. (Unfortunately they lost to Duke!!!) On our way out Thursday 9/22 we stopped in Ashtabula and visited Briquettes. We were drawn to this place based on tripadvisors recommendation. This place was excellent. We arrived about an hour past the lunch hour rush. Our service was good, food was delicious... More

What a cool location by the lift bridge! Great outdoor seating ! Super bar! Ok now the smoked foods.....yum! This is the place for drinks and BBQ. Husband could eat here every meal. I'm not a huge BBQ lover but this place is so good I'm hooked. Reasonably priced. Definitely check this one out
