Have been wanting to get to the original Toronto location but never managed. The Burlington location was great for us to drive to and park easily. This was a quiet midweek night for a girlfriends get together. Service was excellent, food was good, we got the sampler platter and shared which was excellent. Korean nachos were an excellent appetizer and the bbq was authentic! The sides were small portion wise (especially the asparagus considering they are in season and local are plentiful and inexpensive right now) and nothing outstanding. The smoked asparagus had nice hint of smoke but the Mac and cheese was just ok. Next time we would order different sides. They serve sparkling water as an option to regular water with no upcharge. It was a great plus for many of us that are not pop drinkers and were were driving.
I would certainly return again and would recommend it.

Had a great late lunch early dinner with my sister. Was offered the option of sparkling or still water without charge which was a nice change. The bbq was delicious I had the bbq chicken and the smoked sausage and my sister had the ribs and brisket. The brisket was melt in your mouth tender and the sausages perfectly spiced. We also had a side salad and grilled smoked asparagus which was fantastic. Service was excellent the server was attentive personable and efficient. Would definitely go back again when I am in Burlington.

Took my parents there for their 1st Smokehouse experience. As there were so many great choices, the 4 of us decided on 2 platters for 2. Each platter had different meats/ sides allowing all of us to taste the different items. Everything was terrific. There was plenty left over to take home too. Great atmosphere , service is top notch. Will definitely be back again.

I was looking forward to our meal there but was left wanting more. Brisket, ribs and pulled pork were okay. Nothing memorable. Caesar salad was okay. Korean nachos a bit of a disappointment. Sorry. Can’t recommend it.

Needs Ontario Craft beer on tap.
The Quebec centred selection is unsatisfactory, tastewise or geographically.
There is an excellent brewery in Burlington and several in nearby Hamilton.
Having it in cans in the fridge doesn't cut it.

Dinner menu was a bit confusing. Ordered "Teen" portion for two, but when the bill came we were charged the Adult rate. As a result, took most of the meal home. Wines overpriced $13 a glass.

Barque was decent but nothing more than ordinary,food was good but not OMG this is amazing.
Pricing a little high foe quality and amount of food served. Had both sampler platter and brisket sandwich on the table. We expected both items to be larger,salad with sampler was good,ribs not fall off the bone but tasty,pulled pork decent,brisket decent. Service was satisfactory but not overly friendly.
We will try barque again in the future.

We were underwhelmed by our experience at Barque. The service was terrible, slow and never came to see if we were okay or needed anything. The place was empty except for one other table and it was still painfully slow. They didn’t have any chicken when we went, the food was cold and not delicious at all. The salad was hardly a salad. Will not be returning.

spotty service at first - advised 'out of chicken' menu item - then advised not out of chicken?? - had manager explain that kitchen was out of half chicken menu item but 'pulled' chicken was available which is not a menu item...somewhat confusing... perhaps should plan better to ensure menu items available which are one of the main items

Although we had a reservation it took 20 mins to be seated. I took 50 mins for the food to be brought to us upon ordering. Although the menu states food doesn’t come hot, it should not come cool. It was a waste of $160 for 4 people with no alcohol.

Went to Barque as we had heard from friends that it was good. They were very right. We had amazing food that was good from start to finish. The Korean BBQ nachos were outstanding. Had the Sample for Two and all of the BBQ dishes were fantastic. Excellent flavours on all. Topped off with the Tableside S'mores which were a delight. We will definitely go back and have already recommended this to other friends.

We had the Smokers Choice and even with 3 hungry teens there was far more delicious bbq food than we could ever get through in a single sitting... though my youngest did try to with the tableside Smores!

We went for the Taste of Burlington. My friend had the brisket sandwich, he put BBQ sauce on it and loved it. It came with hush puppies, delicious, light and crispy. I had a few with the cheese sauce, I would say it is a better option than fries. I had the smoked salmon wrap. It was really large, not much salmon, mostly vegetables, I could only finish 1/2. My fries were good. My dessert was the apple tart. You get 1/2 a tart with ice cream. It tasted as expected, like a carmel apple pie. My friend had the pecan pie, the slice was so minuscule, I felt sorry for him , I offered some of my dessert. Overall a nice place, with good ambiance.

Barque exceeded our expectations. Love the decor and the food sampler menu was truly awesome for being a first timer. Love eating family style as well.
The chicken wings were probably the best i've ever had!
My husband has a smoker so we are always looking for new things to smoke.
I will highly recommend this to my friends and will be back whenever i'm craving a little smoked meat.

Meal was very good and will definitely be back. Service team would greatly benefit from some training - service slow and impersonal, server was lovely but appeared overwhelmed. Lighting was almost to bright, and I overheard a few tables complaining about it - bright as day yet candles on the tables. Food was so good though all this was easily forgotten and forgiven. Will be back.

This was our first visit - this restaurant was part of the “Taste of Burlington.” The service was super friendly (thank you Lori!), the food was awesome (we will definitely be back) and it was good value for the money - particularly enjoyed the brisket, pulled pork taco with pineapple and chocolate salted caramel doughnuts for dessert. Would absolutely recommend this place :)
