About Bare Grills Bristol
Bare Grills Smokehouse - The Best Dang Smokehouse in the South West.
Born of an appreciation for damn fine burgers & quality smoked meats, we opened our doors in November 2014, and haven't looked back since.
We have a dedicated & passionate team of individuals who take great pride in producing the awesome food that gets served up daily.
Dry aged steaks, hand pressed burgers, slow smoked meats.
First time going to Bristol restaurant. Really enjoyed it but a little disappointed there is no deserts only ice cream
Easily one of the best meals I and the rest of my family have had! The value for money as well is amazing! Would definitely come back when we revisit Bristol.
Food was delicious! Haven’t stopped talking about it! Really good service. Have told everyone they need to go to Bare Grills!
Booked again for December
Amazing!! The food is just wow! Will definitely be returning and recommending to friends!
Brilliant food and good staff Never had a bad meal!!
The service was good but the bloke was s bit miserable
Child friendly which was great for our girls. Cool and relaxing atmosphere.. We will be back!
Food was a little greasy, tasted like they might not have changed the oil for a while. Staff were friendly but it is a very very laid back restaurant.
Had a wonderful time at bare grills,great atmosphere,music and staff, everyone was very happy and very full when we left... Definitely will be going back and recommend to all 👍👍
Excellent food, generous portions and an unbelievable lunchtime meal deal.
3 main / key items missing from menu plus no wings . Cider on board ‘no brainier’ also not available. Not the best smokehouse in south west as has far better
Unfortunately our experience wasn’t great. We shifted our booking for award an hour and a half and there were no issues, a positive start. When we arrived the menu looked really good but we’re surprised at how quiet it was, we all ordered and it was really some of the food and definitely the service that let things down. Service wise the young lady that served us initially was fairly attentive, we must have been there during a changeover as the Male that took over from her was terrible, four of us sat with empty glasses for easily 20 minutes, one of us actually had to go up to him and ask for the bill.....there were only 6 others eating, he wasn’t exactly busy. Food wise the burgers were decent, not the greatest you’ll ever try but they’re ok. I enjoyed my dirty fries but my wife and our two friends really didn’t like them saying they had a funny taste to them, I’m guessing this was the seasoning. Like I said I enjoyed mine but it was 3 against 1. The burnt ends were really, really bad, the meat itself seemed ok but the sauce was bitter, I’ve never tasted bbq sauce like it, definitely the worst I’ve tasted sorry (and sincerely I’ve done the bbq rounds and smoke meat myself at home) I’m not sure if it was burnt or not but it definitely didn’t seem right. Overall a bit of an underwhelming experience which is a shame as on paper it looked to be a sure fire winner. Perhaps we caught them on a bad day but we’re not planning on heading back anytime soon.
This was my first visit since Bare Grills took over from Grill Stock. We had a party of 8 which was precooked for Saturday lunch time. We needn’t have bothered as there was plenty of room as only 2 people were there when we arrived. The drinks menu was good for both food and drinks. I found my burger dry and we were all disappointed with the fries - tasted oily like they were re-fried and were ridiculously hard! Overall it was the company that kept us there not the food! If we were paying the specials rate offered during the week the food would just about be worth it. But for full price, definitely not! I will not be going back and would not recommend. Sorry Bare Grills you guys weren’t up to scratch.
Great service, food and value. Enjoyed our time there
Great staff although BBQ food lacks authenticity - No flavour and did not compare to other BBQ restaurants in Bristol unfortunately!!
Personally not a huge fan of the long single dining room table & stool sitting arrangement but thats personal preference and others might like it. The place was completely empty when we arrived but the service didn't start off well as the server rudely cut me off mid-sentence when I asked if they have draught beer to say No only bottles! I feel like he could have said it in a more polite way as that made me feel unwelcome. That wasn't a great start but I didn't really get any negative vibes for the rest of our meal though which was good. To be honest I had a similar experience when I visited the Bare Grills in Weston Super Mare, which is a shame really because the food was really great but I am still aprehensive about going back. I also didn't like that they don't serve steaks like their Weston Super Mare site. Such a shame, I can't say i'll be in a hurry to visit again next time I am in Bristol.
Great food (huge portions) and atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff.
Great atmosphere and food, would highly recommend to any one looking for a place with an excellent vibe to catch-up with friends.
Excellent service. Quick and friendly
Cracking food, taste was just awesome, all cooked to perfection, will be going again.
Perfect - excellent service and delicious food.
Tragically disappointing. I ordered the ‘super chick’ burger. Described as a buttermilk fried chicken breast - when it arrived I genuinely thought it was a piece of cod from a deep fat fryer. Greasy, tough chicken, the batter slid right off and created a congealed mess on my plate mixed with cheese and sauce. It made me fill a little bit ill. I also ordered burnt end dirty fries. Sadly the fries actually tasted dirty. Either the fryer oil was in desperate need of changing or the seasoning had burnt, it was hard to tel by they had a heavy, salty, unpleasant taste. The brunt ends were dry. I wanted it to be great, but I won’t come back here. The service was ok, though I was left with an empty drink from when the food arrived until we left.
Incredible smokehouse! Ordered the BBQ tower for two and there was so much food... such good value for money too. Will definitely recommend and be returning soon!
