I like Briquettes because their lunch portion is enough to fill me up for a day, but I did not like the chopped steak with caramelized onion so much . The macaroni and potato fries were good. I understand that I asked for well done,...but it tasted more burnt than well done. There was no seasoning or juice flavoring inside the meat; very dry. I had to ask for more mushroom gravy to help coat the meat. The first time I had gone to Briquettes Steakhouse, I ordered the 1/2 slab of ribs and that was a better meal than the chopped steak.More

Hubby and I both had steaks. The restaurant was packed but our waiter was attentive and our food came out hot and we enjoyed our meal. The onion rings were huge but a bit greasy for me. The mixed grilled veggies were good and my...filet was good. Hubby said his ribeye was OK but he wouldn't get it again. The atmosphere was typical steak house but noisy. We paid with cash to save the credit card service fee. Not sure if we would return as there are dozens of other restaurants to try in the area.More

I have always enjoyed Briquettes on Montlimar. This was a much different experience. Table of 8 sat at 3:55. Food on table at 5:00. It’s a steakhouse and they ran out of ready baked potatoes. They brought my plate and didn’t know until they were...playing our food that they were out. Checks paid and table still full of dishes. Despite what menu says, out of all desserts except brownie. And gratuity you already added I assume because of the party of 8. This is a definite thumbs down. Never again.More

We eat here several times a month and almost always have great food and service. The salmon, signature pasta, and steaks are great. The sweet potato casserole is like a desert. Veggies have been very good also.

Meh. I’d suggest a hard pass on this place. Low quality steak. My bone in New York was so grissly and difficult to eat. Baked potato was COLD. Marginal at best. Priced too high for the quality. We won’t be returning.

Rolls were still frozen in the middle. Potato cheese soup was AWFUL. I’m not sure if that’s how it’s usually made or something was terribly wrong. Will not return.

I normally like Briquettes. On Friday January 8, 2021 I started calling at 4:30 to place an order. At 5:10 I started cooking for myself. Phone rang for a while then went busy. This happened twice.

Stopped in for dinner while visiting family in the area & Briquettes exceeded our expectations. The drinks were well poured, our steaks cooked perfectly & quality beef, the sides were all delicious. Even the house red wine was top notch. Our server, Taylor, was an...absolute professional & made the meal even more pleasant. A definite go back to restaurant when in the area!More

One of the best places in Mobile to get a restaurant bought steak. I’ve never had a bad meal here. It isn’t the largest place and it is quite popular so sometimes the wait can be a little long. I can almost always get a...good drink here also. The service and staff is super friendly and attentive.More

We always sit at the bar for food and drinks. They have a great menu, the food is exceptional and so is the service. There is a nice selection of beer. We have never had a bad meal. The place is always really busy for...dinner.More

My father ordered the shaved prime rib sandwich with a side salad, and I order the ribs with onion rings and grilled zucchini. He was extremely satisfied with his sandwich. As for my lunch, I definitely got my money's worth as mine cost $14. I...got a half rack of baby back ribs which had 8 bones, much more than I was expecting for a lunch portion. They came to the table uncut, but I could pull them apart very easily with my fingers. They had a very good flavor, and I didn't even use the extra sauce that I was served. The onion rings and grilled zucchini was also really delicious. It's not the least expensive lunch around, but it's certainly "good bang for the buck"! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Best steak in Mobile. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly and had a great grilled taste. My husband had the ribeye and he said is was excellent.

Sat at the bar for an early dinner. Elizabeth the bartender provided excellent service. I had a ribeye with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled zucchini. The steak was a perfect medium rare, and the flavor of the fire was prominent but not too intense. The...vegetables were perfectly done, and had a little Parmesan sprinkled on for some extra flavor. The potatoes were fine but not impressive. I was hungry, so I also got the apple brown betty dessert. It came out on a dinner-sized plate - it was huge! I got about halfway through it before I was full, but it tasted so good that I plowed through the whole thing. Guilt is temporary; flavor memories last forever. None of the entrees on the menu feature steak, but this is a steakhouse so come here for the meat! This place is a good choice and I am pleased that the only dinner I had in Mobile was here.More
