Friends of ours gave us a gift card to this place so we thought we would check it out. Neither of us are beer drinkers but we both like good BBQ. We were seated immediately and greeted by our server quickly. Drinks and soup/appetizers came...out very quickly. Their Pepper jack crab soup is very good and I must say they have the best onion rings I've had in a long time. The mixed drinks I got were average (measured pour) and the BBQ items were good but not great. The brisket sandwich I got was very good but the smoked turkey and brisket my wife received was pretty dry. The cornbread was excellent and the hand cut fries are very good. They did have a pretty large selection of beer, so if your into brewery hopping this would be a good place to stop. This is a pretty long drive for us so we will not be going back. But it was overall a very good meal.More

Stopped for lunch, opens at 2:00 pm now. Two ordered nachos with brisket, order was smaller than before and the brisket was good but almost non existent. We understand that the restaurant business has taken a beating but cutting size of order and cutting down...on the extras that you pay extra for is not a good business model. Now that Wolly Bulleys closed, options are limited.More

Food is ok, doesn't compare with a slow's or real bbq joint. The ribs are always a little underdone and tough for me, I make them better at home. Mac n cheese is really good. The place is too quiet though, and has a weird...empty vibe. They play 50's music and it feels like an old people place, so it's empty most weekdays. Still has the strange Memories ickyness to it, that was the name of the bar that was there before it. They have a decent beer selection, but only really the block brands, as far as other craft beers they're pretty limited. The beer is also overpriced. I'll probably go back there again, but it's not going to be one of my go to's.More

We were looking for a spot for lunch while traveling and were very happy to find Block Brewing. The beer was very good and so was the food. Our waitress was friendly and polite. The one disappointment was having to wait to pay our bill.

Tried a couple of their stouts - they were good, especially the bourbon barrel aged. The smoked meat pizza was also good.

Had really looked forward to coming here as I love BBQ and had seen photo of their food on a retirement seminar advertisement. The brisket was so tough we had to ask for sharp knives to cut it. It was also about 1/3 fat unlike...brisket in ad. When server came around I asked for a sharp knife and said meat was very tough. She said it was because it was smoked! Um.... I’ve never had brisket that was like this and if it’s so tough please just pass out sharp knives with the meat. Have it 3 stars as the service, Mac and cheese and green beans were goodMore

Been there several times Block Brewing Company. Walking in the atmosphere is relaxed and unique in its own way. Greeted by the staff with a smile. I found all the staff to be knowledgeable about all the beer and food choices. The food tasted good...and there was plenty of it on your plate.More

I stopped here on my way to Grand Rapids because it was rated #2 in Howell - what a joke. The person I was with ordered the pepperjack crab soup and only ate two spoonfuls before quitting. He said it was like a cheese sauce...with bits of fish thrown in - totally gross. I order the pulled pork nachos. The chips were stale as hell, the 'cheese' was more of a sauce and resembled the soup the other person couldn't eat. The chicken was dry as hell and must have been at least a day old. Trip Advisor is normally spot-on in their rating but they really blew it on this one. Maybe the worst food I've ever eaten. On a positive note, Ashley, our server, was very pleasant.More

They have a partition that closes you off from the main dining so you are more secluded.
