Barbecue
Situated directly opposite Windsor Castle. With a passion for Real American BBQ, it is our quest to bring the genuine flavours of the Southern States to the UK.

For lunch & dinner we serve our smoked meats, all cooked the true American way which means our BBQ pitmasters work around the clock to ensure the 'cue we serve when our doors open is the best you will find - it takes nearly 48 hours of loving care and attention to perfect each of our smoked meat cuts.

For breakfast, we serve up freshly made-to-order American pancakes with delicious toppings, as well as fully loaded smoked breakfast plates.

Pre booked our table and arrived and were seated on time. Our waitress was polite and nothing was too much of an ask. I was struggling to decide what I wanted so the waitress came back a few minutes later. It was the one waitress serving but she smiled and was very chatty throughout our meal. Food was good and portions good size.

Lovely family dinner. Value for money with food. Absolutely loved the pit sharing platter, very tasty. Waitresses were very attentive and sought to our every need including ordering a side which was not on the menu. Would definitely recommend.

Good service terrible food, there was no taste of smoke or even bbq in any of the food. The meat gets smoked off site and reheated in the restaurant, even the kids meals looked like they have been microwaved, save your money and avoid.

As good as I remembered before lockdown.
Reduced menu and number of beers which is to be expected and didn't spoil the visit.

Overall a lovely meal and great service with a view of the Castle from the window. We had the brisket and burnt ends, and the Bourbon Burger, both were really good. We also had a child's meal of Mac n Cheese, which went down very well! The iced tea was a great find on the soft drinks menu. They seemed to have everything well organised to be COVID safe, easy to download app with no registering etc to slow you down.

Really disappointed, restaurant and toilets cleanliness was grim, unclean surroundings-needs a new make over.
food wasn’t great, greasy and poor quality.
Staff were friendly enough, seating was tight due to current situations,
We wouldn’t go back.

Website didn't say reduced menu so not much choice, floor needed sweep with old chips etc and the specials hand written on a bit of brown paper and stuck on the wall with blue tac! Looked cheap and nasty not that clean but food was good even tho not much choice. Young waitresses was nice and said sorry the website should be updated.

My expectation was to experience the BBQ atmosphere complete with the lovely smell. Maybe due to CoVid this wasn’t possible. However the dining area was small. The tables felt sticky to the touch and overall the ambience was pretty down market. The food was tasty and served on BBQ type plates and my steak was well cooked an tender. Overall a fairly average meal out.

Was really surprised there weren't more people. Went for lunch on a very hot day, staff were pleasant and organised, didn't feel rushed and tables were well spaced out, food was excellent and the view of Windsor castle was lovely. Air con was a bonus!

The food is rather dry with a lack of condiments available.

It is basically a local pub serving overcooked dry meat under the headline “smoke house”.

The chips are great though, but I wouldn’t return.

Lovely FOH staff and fairly prompt service however the food was almost entirely disappointing and in some aspects incredibly unappetising.

The burger was over cooked and dry/tough.

The brisket was dry and tired looking

I ordered a side salad which came with an abundance of a watery/curdled mayo mixture in the bottom of the bowl which was very off-putting.

Made no complaint in the restaurant because it was clearly short staffed and the meal was inexpensive due to EOTHO

This was my first Bluegrass experience and if the quality of food within this experience is anything to go off - I won’t be returning.

No fault to the serving staff but the food other than the average burnt ends and surprisingly good fries, was pretty awful.

Awesome food with the added benefit of the 50% off made it great value. Sat upstairs with a great view of Windsor castle. Background music was very quiet so maybe could have done with this being a little louder for a bit more theatre. Overall great food and excellent service, would definitely come again.

As an American ex-pat I am very rarely impressed by American style BBQ places in the UK. Bluegrass made me a very happy camper indeed. Great food, great location, and very comfortable.
