I drove by this place two months ago and thought it looked appealing from the outside. as it's a half-hour out of the way, my brother-in-law and I finally tried it last night. What a disappointment! There were only six or so beers on tap, and not a single dark ale. Whoopee. We both got the beef brisket, which was... More

It had been five years since we were last here. I recall trying to stop in for lunch once with some retired buddies a couple of years ago, but they do not open until 5 pm. This being a Saturday evening in March, about 6 pm, we figured it would be quite busy. But we were astonished to see only... More

By far the best barbeque restaurant I have ever been. Their pulled pork is phenomenal. They have a superb beer selection as well. And, surprisingly, an incredible pizza.

The Brunswick barbecue and Brew is a hidden gem in the Capital Region. The meat is lean and tender and the sauces are delicious. Their signature "Pink Sauce" is really something special- sweet and spicy and just the right amount of sticky. The portion are huge and the sides are delicious. They have delicious unique pizza also! Its a local... More

I just recently completed 2 visits to Brunswick BBq & Brew due to a Groupon glitch. The first visit was on a Saturday, when they exclude Groupon use, and the second time was to use the Groupon before it expired. I want so much to like this place, but there are things that keep getting in the way and are... More

We were incredibly disappointed with the food. The ribs were overly charred, dry and tough. I am not convinced they were not left over from last night and reheated. DISGUSTING!! The barbecue sauce was not impressive. The sides of coleslaw and beans were equally as disappointing. Not worth the money. Sad to say Dinosaur - a chain - has far... More

We have been here a handful of times in the past few months, mostly to hear local bands and to have drinks/desserts. Small place to dance, which is fun. I guess we assumed it was just a BBQ place (because of its name) and my husband and I don't eat meat out. One of our recent trips we noticed they... More

We are actually frequent customers and the service is always slow, which is so disappointing because the food is great. On our last (and probably final) visit My husband and I were seated by the very nice hostess, In the dinning room with one other couple who were ordering drinks when we sat. After 2 more groups were seated after... More

After visiting Brunswick BBQ & Brew twice, we chose it as the venue for the rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding in August. With a lot of out-of-town guests attending, we had 48 adults and two children at the dinner. The food and the service were outstanding. The weather cooperated and we were able to use the patio, which suited... More

We eat here every time we visit our daughter, who lives in Brunswick. The food is great and the service is always friendly. We're looking forward to our next trip and eating at the Brunswick BBQ & Brew.
