Was out east ways recently for work and some biz associates and I were looking to go to dinner. Being where we were, Bobbique came to mind.

I went on reputation, as I was a little disappointed to see that their beer menu had not been updated on Beermenus.com in some time. Its a pet peeve of mine. Someone should get on that. :)

Getting past that, however, the place was great. Nice selection of drafts to choose from. The food was outstanding across the board. Atmosphere was lively and the music was very good and not overwhelming.

I would def recommend the place and will be stopping back next time Im out that way.

The food at Bobbique is really the reason to go. I've searched for good BBQ all over Long Island, and this is by far the best I've found. The beer selection is a bonus. Always lots of good beer on tap. The service is good too. I'm not thrilled with the atmosphere. It tends to be a little loud for my tastes. I'm a little deaf in my left ear and the acoustics make having a conversation difficult. Some of the seating is uncomfortable, too. But none of this should keep you from the place. The collard greens alone are excuse enough to get up right now from what you're doing and head toward Patchogue.

Another craft beer week stop. I had been in here before, but never long enough to merit a rating. This time I heard a bunch of beer geeks were going there, so I decided to join them. This might be my favorite place of all of the Patchogue hot spots. And it's close to my favorite beer store too.
I had a sampler plate of BBQ stuff which was delicious! The bartenders (who my only beef with is that they seem to spend too much time with the folks they know, and not enough with us newbies) were helpful in suggesting beer to go with my food. The food and beer were served up fast. The tap list made me wish I had a DD! I had some great stuff (they let me have small samples before I bought) and hung out for a while. Very welcoming, great tap & bottle list, good food, if this place was closer to home, or DWI's didn't exist, I'd be here all of the time.

Have passed this place many a time and as a craft beer nerd on LI it is impossible to have never heard about it. Was feeling in the mood for bbq for lunch today and this.place pops up at the top of the list for bbq in the area i work. Had some time and headed out for lunch. Really nice draft selection (started with a lagunitas sucks ($3 mug!)And ordered some ribs.

The place had opened not long ago and already a few people in. Service was fast. Ribs were tender and tasty. Not the best i had but good enough that i would get then again without hesitation. Proved reasonable for the quality and the fact that they are a craft place. Worth a stop if you dug bbq, i plan to return again and again

A - A true craft beer restaurant vibe. Plenty of people who are into good beer.

Q - Clean tap lines, menu updated regularly, and a nice clean place to go.

Serv - Was very impressed that the waitress knew about all their offerings, and could make suggestions. Was prompt and attentive.

Sel - Great selection of locals, rares, and many tap choices. Easily a great craft beer destination.

Food - I loved the BBQ. If you like plenty of grilled meat you will have a blast.

V - Pricing wasn't bad at all. $40 for appetizer, meal, and 2 beers.

The place that made me love beer! This was the first real spot on the island that allowed me to get into rare beers and craft beers. One of the best things about this place is the taps are always clean and rotating. The place in general is very clean and well run. One of the funny things about my experiences here was I never really got into the food because I was too busy trying the beers. I think I talked Brian the bartender's ear off when I first started going here about the beer. They do events occasionally and have meet the brewers nights. That's how I got to meet a lot if brewers in the area. Definitely check this place out it's great.

THIS PLACE ROCKS.

great little barbecue joint on main street in patchogue, i didn't expect much when i first walked in this place but after seeing the draft and bottle list i was pleasantly surprised. They had plenty of local offerings such as blue point sixpoint greenport harbor and great south bay brewing. the staff had a very basic knowledge of the beer they served. they also had a reserve bottle list with some pretty big name beers such as black ops and sam adam's utopia. the prices on beer were very fair and i think the do something like 4 dollar taps on thursday night.
The food was outstanding great southern barbecue i got fried pickle chips which were amazing and a rib platter that had a whole ton of food on it and it was right around 20 dollars. They had a great live blues band playing and a very friendly mixed aged crowd, i highly suggest stopping by if you are ever in the patchogue area.

Excellent place on the island if youre looking for great BBQ, nice atmosphere, and of course craft beer. The food is top notch and there is always entertainment on the weekends. They frequently have beer pairing dinners and then theres the beer list; They must have over 200 bottles here. A great place to try new beers and they even have DFH 120, but a about 20 bucks a bottle you will pay the price. They have about 10 beers on tap and always a tasty Cask or two. Its right down the road from Blue point brewery so they almost always have a few beers on tap and even a cask from them. Must check it out if you love beer and/or BBQ and Blues.

Exceptional! I have been to several BBQ joints and have experience in places like this, this may have been the best overall BBQ/Blues/Craft Beer joint I have been to. Went with a buddy. It was not crowded but people were filling in. I was so impressed with the craft beer selection that I almost called my wife to ask her if she could drive me home later in the night. I would have liked to have sampled many on the list. Opened up with a ST APA and was even more impressed when the young man asked me if I wanted a glass. That does not happen all the time. The service was superb. Ribs were great, dry-rubbed. Chicken wings, sublime. I had the beans and cole slaw for sides and loved both. I am going back next week with my wife who doesn't drink so she can drive. Wow! Awesome place.

I love this place.

I've been going here every now and then for about six months and it seems like it was built specifically for me. They have some very good BBQ. Their pulled pork is what I usually get and its some of the best pulled pork I've ever had.

Their beer list is very expansive and there are frequent changes so you'll be able to get new things every now and then. From the looks of things, they also seem to have a good variety of bourbon though I haven't paid much attention to that.

The atmosphere is great. It feels like a bit of a dive bar from Texas but its exactly what I like. They also have live music, which, if you like blues, is really good.

One of my favorite moments came when I was walking in and someone was bugging the bartender to find out what the lightest beer on tap was and she's yelling back something about Captain Lawrence.

The staff is also very friendly and knowledgeable. They've been able to answer every question I've had about whatever beer I was ordering. They are also insanely fast with getting you your beer and food.

Its also a very good place for watching football games. During football season, draughts are $3 and that's pretty nice. They also have the Sunday ticket so you can watch all the games playing at once along with two projectors that show the New York games. Its also not that crowded during the day games so its a nice place to relax, watch the game, and enjoy the company of fellow football fan/beer geeks.

Definitely check this place out if you enjoy good beer, good music, and good BBQ.

I was in Patchogue for two days tagging along with my wife on a business trip. Hotel was 4 miles north of downtown Patchogue, across the street from the Brickhouse Brewery and around the corner from Blue Point.

I usually hit up brewpubs when I'm traveling but opted for Bobbique before the Brickhouse after I received several nominations from local beer geeks at Blue Point down the street.

It was seriously a good choice, this place is phenomenal! Very nice bright signage in front, can't miss it. Open floor plan, take out register in front right, bar on the left with a ridiculous tap and bottle selection. Tall tables all the way down the right side of the building, low picnic tables in front of the stage in the back. I think there was even more seating in the far back past the restrooms.

Let's see, the waitstaff was incredibly friendly with looks to match, the smell of smoke ringed meats dominated the atmosphere. Framed photos and records of blues artists all over the walls. Interesting elements of decor placed to give you the vibe of place in the back woods of Missouri, but way nicer and less bible thumping sodomy.

The food was awesome, perfect bbq arrived on metal trays about half the size of a cookie sheet. We started with bbq chicken wings, which were whole wings slathered in bbq sauce. They were fall off the bone delicious. My wife had pulled pork sandwich which contained enough pulled pork for at least four sandwiches. Awesome pulled pork!

I had a two meat combo, beef brisket and St.Louis ribs with side of fries, cornbread, and the best baked beans I've ever had. They didn't over sauce so the flavor of the meat took center stage. Beef was really fatty almost making it tough to chew. Ribs were awesome.

Blues band playing, I think they have live music every night.

Ok now the beer which was on par with the food. First of all, they had Ballast Point Sculpin on tap! I can't find it in bottle let alone on tap this far from San D! I also had a Goose Island IPA, another brewery I can not get in Connecticut. A few other really good taps (check the website, it seems pretty up to date.) Bottle list was stupid which included Goose Island Beers, Stone vintages, Black Ops. Their vintage selection was pretty pricy.

This place is awesome! I have to check out a noon and catch the 4:30 ferry back to CT, maybe I'll go back for lunch!

Cheers!

its very rare for a place to do two things exceptionally well and to impress geeks of different schools, like say BBQ & Beer.

Like Pizzeria/Bierria Paradiso in WDC, Bobbique does BOTH food and beer exceptionally well.

its also very rare in suffolk county(NY) to have a cool place to DRINK great beer and EAT great food TOGETHER AT ONE PLACE, and when you throw in the wild card of weekly entertaining blues based live music for atmospherics well its a truly rare and cool dining and imbibing pleasure to find round these parts.

very frequently here at Bobbique ive got the this is so yummy face going simultaneously with the cool back of the tongue aftertaste of a great ale kicking in while im rocking out to a live toasty version of an old blues/rock chestnut by some band ive never heard of and would clap my hands from sheer joy for but im sure my hands would probably stick together, cause theyre slathered like ribs with gobbs of leftover bbbq sauce.so i howl like a wolf and risk choking.gladly.happily.appreciation all around.

maybe ten beer taps and the selection rotates seasonally-always well thought out fine selection/cross section of draught beer focusing locally/usa-but a few international stand outs usually pop in-a few casks also i think-a massive bottle selection of maybe 60-80 containing many hard to get & rare beers which they usually have in stock and not just on the menu.as i said the tap selection is very good and frequently i can go 4-5 new beers deep in it. i come here maybe once a month or so-

theres also spirits, think requilas, single malts, whiskys, bourbons.i recently had a patron coffee infused tequila shot and it was delicious.dangerously tasty for a tequila. the sweetfireyness blended right in with the bbq smoke and beer hop and could lead to massive brain cell depletion, and other adverse effects, in large amounts.be responsible, drink like a big boy.

the bbq is smoked in the memphis style id say and is almost all very very well done. bbq ribs,chciken wings, brisket, pulled pork stand out and most sides are really well exceuted. sweet potato french fries-macncheese-salads/slaws-being real pickyaune maybe the corn bread could be steepped up a notch, maybe thats cool though, more room for the amazing chicken wings.and these wings go so great with beers.all beers.every beer.

most nites chef eric rifkin comes around the floor checking out the house and how the patrons are doing when it slows down a bit, slap him on the back and thank him for doing two or three things really well. BBQ,BEER, BAR. he'll even go all geeky with you about beers bbq or music.he enjoys all these things himself.

while some may argue that the beer menu or food is a bit expensive, personally i feel that BOTH the beer and food menu are a great value when weighed against quality, i might conceed moderately priced(maybe) but would not say pricey ever.quality vs price= true $$$ value.

im a local and a regular.probably no better testiment than that needed here.

I have been here many a times both for Brewmaster Dinners, events and also just for dinner! A place where I can get fried pickles, A pulled pork sandwich with a cask ale?!?! What more can you ask for! The tap selection is nice, it always seems to change and the barbeque is extremely well done. There is a great collection of bottles for sale! A definate stop if you are in the area. At brewmaster dinners and events I have always left hungry, this would be my only downside although the food @ the brewmaster dinners is absolutely incredible.

When wondering where the best beer town on long island is, you do not have look any further then the village of Patchouge.

Right across the street from the Brick House Brew Pub, this bar is just another wonderful attribute in a great town. Excellent open set up, very down to earth, with a mind-blowing beer selection, including a Belgian-only beer fridge, two cask engines, and a rotating tap of Lindeman's Lambic.

The service was outstanding, friendly, and quick.

THis is a place I would live at if I had the chance

An excellent place for great BBQ and awesome beer. Prices are about right for a restaurant setting. The beer list is very extensive, especially for this area. I had the pleasure of enjoying some Dogfish Head Burton Baton with my ribs and brisket. Good tap selection with two potential cask offerings although there was only one the evening that I went. The bottle list is more impressive with some rarities. I will definitely make it back whenever I am in town. Worth a trip if you are on Long Island.

Went here recently based off other BA's reviews.
Place is well lit and has a great smell (well it is great if you like the smell of bbq). Chalkboards on the walls outline the tap list as well as some liquors like bourbon.
I was disappointed by the beer menu for two reasons. 1) No Captain Lawrence when I was there and 2) Sixpoints Bengali Tiger IPA (cask) just ran out. However, the fact that they had Double Bastard on tap made the night much better. I haven't seen DB around for a while now and thought that Stone was out of it until its next release, but I was pleased.
Other selections on tap included Bluepoint(blueberry, Hoptical (cask)), Southampton Golden Lager, Hooker Irish Red, Hennepin.
The draft list was deep enough that I didn't have to get any of the 60 or so bottles they had.
The food was great. Our table had 4 different meals and all of them were good.
The service wasn't bad, but it also wasn't exceptional.
The beer and food easily make Bobbique a place that I will visit hopefully many times this summer.

i went to this place after the bluepoint cask festival with a fellow beer guru. their food was great but pricey. the selection was great tho- especially after being at the cask festival where great beer was in every direction. our waitress must have been only 18 and didn't know a thing about beer so we just tokd her to tell the bartender to keep surprising us. after our first selection the bartender steered her in the right direction for us all night so her lack of knowledge did not really bother us. overall feel of the place was nice - a good place to eat then sit for a few hrs and drink around. this is the perfect location for a joint like this because the people of patchogue,bluepoint n bayport know good beer and want it where ever they can get it. i am deffinitly going back there when i get out to patchogue again. plus there is a great beer store right down the road in bayport - superstar - tons of beer there.

Encouraged by the glowing reviews by my friend Donavan and the ones here of the BA, I went with a gang of four to this unique and outstanding BBQ joint last night, after a brief stop at the Blue Point Brewery. Dressed in an modern industrial look with a two story ceiling and an elegant looking bar, the focus in this place is clearly on the seasoned culinary arts application to your mama's best BBQ.

We enjoyed sharing our super meals at the bar almost Chinese-style so everyone could have a taste of the immense pulled-pork, the pulled bbq chicken, sliced brisket, and the fine ribs. The chef made himself available to everyone and answered questions like mine as I thought the bbq sauce might have been spiked with bourbon (not so).

The colorful beer section at the bar deserves notice with 2 casks, about 9 regular taps, and a rounded selection of bottles and 750ml-s. The selection was clearly up to date with a sense of humor (Schlitz and Schmidt's in cans), the Brooklyn 1, Dogfishhead Pangea, and monthly designation for a particular brewer. This month is Sixpoint's turn, so 4 taps and one cask were theirs.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Sixpoint Brownstone, Apollo Wheat, the Sixpoint Oatmeal Stout on cask all night.

In the same manner that I refer everyone I know to visit the fabled Peter Luger's to know what great steak is, my hat is off the Bobbique for performing the same feat in its specialty.

I have to start off by saying this place is hands down awesome. It's also conviently located directly across the street from the Brickhouse. When you walk in, you order from a counter and they give you a number to which they will bring your food and drink if you choose to sit at a table. Or, you can just order directly at the bar if you want to post up. The interior is sort of modern/industrial with lots of shiny metal. It actually reminds me of the factory levels from Sonic The Hedgehog. A long bar with mirrored shelves and a big plasma tv hanging above them. Nice display of bottles on shelves here as well. Besides the tables, there is also a narrow bar-style table parallel with the bar so that there is more room to watch a game on the tv if the bar is filled. The beer selection here is spectacular, I wont list them all here but just about every style is covered, (including rye beer, lambics, and other more rare styles). There are 12 taps and 2 casks going. Around 70 bottles, a bunch of 750's, as well as some cans. They have Wittikerke Wit on tap, the only place on Long Island to carry it. The owner drove into the city himself to pick up some kegs. His name is Eric and he really enjoys/knows his beer and is dedicated to bringing in beers that are hard to find and/or nobody else has. The beer menu on their website is outdated, reflecting the selection at opening last spring. Hopefully they will update that soon. The food here is also top notch, BBQ doesnt get much better than this. I usually go with the classic pulled pork sandwich but the ribs and wings are amazing and must be tried if you go. This is definitely a place to go after you've hit Blue Point around the corner, or in general. It's worth a trip in itself.

Wanting to drop into the new barbecue joint on the way back from lunch out east was a little something I neglected to mention to my vegetarian co-pilot until we were well en route. Sampled the wares and had a beer or two but wanted to come back and get a full meal here and was afforded the opportunity to do so just a few weeks later. A night on the island; no stars, no sand, but some quality time with my lobster, Luna Lovelock (her porn star name), dinner, on a Tuesday...

Order your food and drink at the counter on the right and go grab a table. A 15 seat "J" shaped bar, wood lip and marble top, runs halfway down one side. The bar back is mirrored panels with shelving racks of bottled beer and booze below a central flatscreen, and a blackboard with tap and cask selections off to one side. Drop lamps over the bar and the 15 small raised tables (in 5 rows of groups of 3) on the other wall, and an 8 seat bar counter in the center of the room, dividing the bar area from seating. Beyond the bar lie a handful of round tables at the foot of a small stage area where they do live music. A room to the rear rear holds seating for about 50. Beige walls, red & brown trim, large black & white prints on the far wall and Scotch & Tequilas listed on boards forward the bar and the bottled beer board sitting over the cashier counter.

We did the BBQ chicken wings app and the Iceberg Lettuce Wedge (comes with beefsteak tomato and great smoked bacon). Luna, the Crispy BBQ Salmon, me, the brisket and pulled pork combo. Food was tasty and there was a lot of it. The tables are lined with a heavy paper; crayons and condiments in beer 4 pack holders. While she was in the bathroom, I wrote, "Help!! Kidnapper. Please call police!!" on the table paper with a big arrow pointed towards her. She was not really amused by this, but she was tapping madly. I'm going to have to de-crayon her.

The beer theme here is "70 @ 70", meaning "70 different beers at 70 W. Main Street". A dozen taps on a single tower on the bar and 2 casks. A handful of the taps are imports (Paulaner Hefe, O'Hara's Stout) but they're mostly good micros. Amongst the beers on tap during my visit earlier this evening were these Bluepoint 3 (Blueberry, Toasted Lager, Winter Ale), as well as the Southampton Double White, Sixpoint Sweet Action, Brooklyn Brown Ale, and on cask, the Bluepoint ESB & Captain Lawrence Double IPA. Damn! Great representation of the 5 local breweries.

Also, upwards of 5 dozen bottles, mostly 12 ouncers but some 22's and 750's too. Micros (Stone, Anchor, North Coast, Stoudts, Avery, Brooklyn, Sierra Nevada, Victory, Weyerbacher, DogFishHead, Ommegang), Belgians and the like (Cantillon Rose De Gambrinus, Trappist Achel Brune, Chimay Cinq Cents, Petrus Triple, De Ranke XX Bitter, Saison DuPont, Delirium Tremons, Lindemans, Castelain, Jenlain), Germans (Aecht Schlenkerla, Franziskaner, Aventinus, Kulmbacher Eisbock, Spezial Rauchbier, Schneider Weisse), English (Thomas Hardy's, Fullers ESB, Sam Smith, Adnams, St Peters, Hopback) and more.

Revisited yet again, I had an Anchor OSA '06 (bottle) and a Stone Smoked Porter (draft) with dinner this evening, which was the BBQ chicken wings app and the (fall off the bone) ribs & pulled pork combo. Ant'ny had a full rack of ribs. Said he of the wings, "This was like the best chicken I've ever had, and it was only the wings". Dinner comes with cornbread and your choice of sides. I had the southern pride beans and the coleslaw (it was damn good coleslaw). Garbagemen we be, Ant very much liked the use of the recycled paper towels on the tables ("It's a green restaurant").

Really good food here and they're constantly tweeking that beer list. Excellent.
