I prefer Muddys, but the food is decent
Server courtney is always amazing and attentive, will always return!
Best BBQ in town!
There's no doctor on staff, but it's still pretty good.
Nice atmosphere. Good service and very tasty food.
Always a great place. Good southern bbq
I ordered a pound of wing and although they were amazing, there was not enough some how (you should maybe put them on a bed of fries), so I ordered the brisket as well ... and my god... Best I have had. Very clean, staff was very nice, trust me go here!!! More...
Great food. Great people.
This place is such a good time. Check it out.
Extremely delicious as smoked food is. You can smell them smoking it a mile away with that godly smell. It's definitely a pricey place but it's worth it. Plus they have Richard's Red of draft.. yum. More...
Great food great service
Excellent food. Interesting clientele.
We dropped in on our way through Peterborough, looking for another restaurant that we had heard about (it was closed) so we happened upon this restaurant a couple of blocks over, in the downtown core. They don't look nearly as good on the outside as they do inside (from the street) but don't let that deter you. The interior is bright and spacious, with a nice bar on the one end, and lots of booths and high-tables around the room More...
Fast and friendly service...clean...good food.
The only reason I got a little pushed Away was portion size. Food overall is not bad. Service is good too.
Always good food and great service. They keep a bunch of craft beers on tap, and the food always comes out in a timely manner
Messy poutine is my favorite
The food was good and good service
Fantastic food great staff. Try the brisket... Drool
I have no idea why they serve their amazing food with a knife. It all just falls apart in your fingers. Best BBQ my Father and I have had in a long time, match only by the incredible service.
Great food, great atmosphere
Best burgers in town and fresh smoked meat.
Try the pulled pork quesadilla! Just do it
Pretty good food, satisfaction guaranteed, service was pretty good too
Very gud service...
Try the chicken wings with a dry rub and get the sauce on the side! So good...but they are a bit overpriced so go Monday when they are 50% off.
Delicious bbq treats. Loved the ribs!
Good food menu and plenty if draught beer to choose from
Love the food and service here!!!
Nice bbq in Peterborough
Awesome food and service. Been here a few times now and everytime has been a good experience highly recommended if your a fan of smoked meats and bbq oh and there mac and cheese is very good too although I feel it shouldn't be a 3 dollar upgrade at a bbq joint...
Food was fantastic. Definitely going back
Best brisket tacos ever
Very nice staff
In peterborough for work and this is the only burger place I hit during my trip, but after eating there I'm convinced I don't need to try anywhere else, some of the best damn BBQ I've had hands down.Will be hitting this joint again next time I run through 100% More...
Awesome menus caters to different palettes... Friendly service and staff
Probably some of the best BBQ I've ever had. Delicious.
Awesome place, I had a blast!!!
Worth the price because the food, and service are there. You taste the passion of the pitmasters skills.
Amazing service great food amd great prices. Be sure to try the lunch special as there always good
Great bbq restaurant in heart of Peterborough
Really good barbeque cooking, super clean place to sit down and eat the staff are super friendly and don't bug you but they also look after you enough so you dont feel left alone, they still have the names of the old patrons on the wall from when it was the old Mo-Ho!Very warm and welcoming place! Highly suggest it if you like bbq style cooking! More...
Awesome smoked food! Mac and cheese was great and the smoked sausage!!
Amazing smoked meat, super friendly staff, great service, and Ty's got nice hair
Great food, fair prices, clean. Would go back again for sure!
Fantastic food, nice cold beer and friendly service at very reasonable prices. Highly recommended.
BBQ is awesome of course... today tried the wings and their sauces are also amazing. Will be back.
Outstanding food and service.
Food is delish and service is quick. It's a great choice for something different in downtown Ptbo. Prices are more than I would normally spend (for lunch) but it's quality meat, cooked in such a fantastic way. It's worth it!
Love the brisket sandwiches
Phenomenal food and atmosphere!
Quaint little place good food decent parking friendly staff
Favourite place to eat in Peterborough!! Amazing food, great atmosphere!
Love it, especially the ribs!
Went for half price wings and beer... Always great.
Great food and service. Will definitely be back.
First time there in over a year.Plan to attend to hear the jazz music next Saturday. Menu looks good with reasonable prices. Just check the beer prices before ordering... some regular brands at other pubs are "premium" here with corresponding higher price.Correction... I was also there last Thanksgiving for their special turkey dinner which included 2 local beers. When the manager was advised I didn't drink beer, he reduced my charge substantially***** Great customer relations!!!!! More...
The food is excellent! We had wings and a chicken sandwich and loved it. Can't wait to go back for more.
Dr. J's is THE place in town if your looking for Southern style bbq. Friendly atmosphere and the food is always second to none. You have to eat here!
ceaser salad is so good. and I'm not big on ceaser. and the quesadilla is amazing
Frequent customer. Very good food, always tastes fresh! If you like smoked food this is the place to go. They dont drench their food in sauce either.
Great food good prices
Great food and service
BBQ is really well done. Authentic. Service is top-notch. 10/10 Def recommend!
Great tasty food, great service!!
After an initial bad intial review, I have visited a few more times. First because friends dragged me, after, because it was good food and great service. They keep a bunch of craft beers on tap, and the food always comes out fresh and in a timely manner. More...
Clean restaurant, great atmosphere. Good food and great location.
Amazing Brisket and wings.
Tia Dawn Graham
Best bbq around! Good selection of craft beer and I love their wings with the unique sauce choices. Craving today was satisfied with 40 creek bbq sauce and crown royal maple bbq
Great restaurant! BBQ CHICKEN was amazing! Thanks for the great food.
This place has the best ceasers. The food is pretty good. I haven't always loved the things I've picked out but I'm a little fussy at times. Sometimes the service is amazing, sometimes it's a little lacking. Generally though decent place to go. More...
Great prices. Healthy sized portions. Friendly staff. That's what we get every time we go to Dr J's. Love the smokehouse foods - pork, chicken, beef. Usually has a table open with not long waits for food or drink. TVs have games on. Sometimes live music. Haven't had a meal there that I haven't liked the 4-5 times I've been there over the past three years. Good job Dr J's! More...
Got a few lbs of wings and wooow they were fantastic big juicy flavorful wings.
Get the brisket.
Excellent wings and ribs. Sauce was amazing and real, not frozen fries. Beans are the real deal too!Will be back for sure
The best BBQ in Peterborough
Its always good at Dr Js BBQ and Brews .
Food is very good
Great place for brisket
Excellent service, great barbecue, highly recommended
Really nice, authentic slow cooked and smoked BBQ. I had the sampler with Ribs, Brisket and pulled pork. Nice, deep smoky flavours, and pretty good service. 4 stars instead of 5 because the ribs and brisket both had really nice texture, but were both under seasoned to my tastes, but I'll definitely be back. The slaw, beans and cornbread were all excellent too (had to have a bite of the cornbread before I took the pic) More...
Excellent service and cheap menu prices.
Tony and the staff are fantastic. Prices are reasonable. The sides are plentifull.
Great place. Very good wings and good drinks. Also they made really good brisket.
Mmmm BBQ. Never had a bad meal here. Good draft selection and great sweet potato fries.
The Gentle Takeover
Incredible food and service!! Great sized portions from both the adult and kids menu! BBQ sauces are like no others I have ever tried! A must try!
Very welcoming staff and customers - went in for the wings on a recommendation and no disappointment at all. Really damn good wings. Pick the first flavour on the list - it’s hot but good hot. More...
Best burger I've ever had. Compliments to Chef Eric!
Great food, great service, chill environment, will definitely be back!
If you like burgers, this is the place to be. Pulled pork wasn't as great as expected but was still good. It's really cool how they cook some of their food outside also.
Amazing southern barbeque.
One of my favourite restaurants!
Great service, great food and great scene. Best ribs I’ve ever had!
Great smoked pulled pork sliders and cold beer
Good food differnt kind of menu. Staff is great
Dr Js has catered our Christmas events a few times now. The food has always been great, The smoked mac and cheese is to die for!!! Caesar salad would have the emperor himself on his knees! More...
Good hidden gem
Awesome food, lots of great beer on tap. Honestly love everything on the menu, you can't go wrong trying something new at Dr. J's, nice to have a place with high quality BBQ like this in Peterborough! More...
Food was absolutely amazing. Service was a bit rough, it got really busy right when we were about to leave with a few large groups and we had some difficulty finding someone we could pay for our meal.
Great menu and great BBQ.
Great food great prices and gotta love Caesar Sunday.
amazing spot for ribs and they got duck wings. its a great spot
If you want wings, go to Dr. J's.
Good food and drinks.
Great bbq and beer and the staff is very friendly
Very good and delicioud

Ixchel Medina Hernandez
We had the nachos between two of us and were completely stuffed! The pulled pork was fantastic.
Fun visit, good tacos, great beer,and atmosphere!
Truly an amazing burger. Great relaxing atmosphere and great selection of beer.
Great food and service. Staff are wonderful
Best BBQ around
Awesome as always! This time we tried wings including the infamous ghost pepper wings - delicious! Hot as unholy he'll, without a doubt the hottest wings I've tried. My buddy made it through 4 and myself 1. The waitress brought complimentary milk, bread. And extra napkins as we were obviously reacting. Would definitely order them again! More...
This is the best restaurant in Peterborough. The food is phenomenal, the kind of place where you will feel comfortable no matter what the occasion. It's mostly meat, buy remind your vegetarian friends that the CEF does his best to source local ethically farmed products, and there are two or three vegetarian options. Guaranteed good time! More...
Outstanding food great atmosphere
Wonderful great service great food yummy
I was here Friday and came back Sunday. Just can't get enough. Great food, great service. If you're driving through Peterborough make sure you stop here. They have specials every day. I forgot to take a picture. You will not be disappointed. Very generous portions. More...
Fantastic BBQ'd food.
We just had a bunch of ribs at our office and the staff devoured them in record time. Excellent food thanks Dr.J's!
Delicious meats and good times at the Dr's. Perfect for a team wing night on Mondays and live music for a night out. Oh and moosehead is 4,20.. Sign me up.
one of my fav BBQ joints
Amazing wings and the best poutine I have ever had. Hands down my favorite place to eat
Amazing bbq food, friendly staff. This is our go to spot for dinner & drinks.
Crowded for lunch but definitely a place to put on your map
While traveling I only pick locally owned, when I can. This nite I picked Dr.J's. and they didn't disappoint! I enjoyed the BBQ&fixins, atmosphere and of course the people both the staff and locals. Thanks for the good conversation. Cheers AJ, Sam and Matt! More...
Beet salad is bomb
Not much to look at but has amazing food and very good prices.
Good food, good beers, friendly staff
Authentic Southern style ribs, chicken and brisket. Don't be afraid to try the salad here either - fresh and inventive with smoked beets!
We celebrated my Dad's 75th at Dr. J's and they didn't disappoint. By far the best smoked meat in town.
Delicious and true southern BBQ style food. The ribs are to die for, and the nachos have a very generous helping of toppings and cheese. Get the guacamole!
Food was great and service was pretty good. They have great BBQ and Monday's they have 1/2 price wings. Also have a great beer selection
Great restaurant and bar! Delicious smoked food! You can smell their food cooking a mile away! Great selection of beers. I tried the Turkey wings, they were great! More...
Great food and atmosphere has been updated creating a nice environment.
Good service & wings
This place is tasty and delicious yum!
A bit expensive, but you get what you pay for.
One of my favourite places. Staff are all very friendly and attentive. Ribs are AMAZING.
Brisket had too many extras in it. Vegetables were cruncy after asking for them well done. False teeth don't like crunchy veggies.
Best smoked meat!!!! Food is fantastic. Never been disappointed.
We asked where a good place in Peterborough is for wings. Wow where impressed! They are so flavourful and large! A nice selection of flavours for all to enjoy! The salads are great as well. We had their brisket last week and it too was amazing! Most definitely a place to try. More...
Geneva T. Bain
Great food, made just for you....!!!
Really enjoyed the brisket and sweet potatoe fries!
Really like this place. Good food and service. Good selection of beers. Only real bbq that I know of in Peterborough.
Andrea and Michael VanDerHerberg
Great ribs. Great people.
Amazing food, great atmosphere! Always a great experience here.
I met Dr J and the crew yesterday at the Steam Whistle Craft Beer Fest in Toronto. Classy crew, great service and great food. The half ribs and pulled pork sandwich Amazing!! Best food at the event. Thanks for the hats and keep up the good work. More...
This is a great place to go if you enjoy really great BBQ/smoked meats. The Mac and cheese side is to die for and the smoked beet salad (with BBQ chicken added) is amazing. I would love to see them expand the craft beer selection and change the music. Country music blared at lunch can only be tolerated for so long! Otherwise, this is a great spot for great food! More...
Excellent food every time.
Excellents ribs !
Best and biggest wings in town! Chef Eric aims to please
Deadly! Try the Mac & cheese.
Best wings and macaroni
Love love love the food. Always allot of fun.
Good grub, friendly timely service.
Amazing food, good service , good environment
When Eric H is in the kitchen the place can not be beat.
I love the food the atmosphere and the staff are very friendly
Excellent food and friendly service
Robert Rich Appleton
This place takes smoked anything seriously. Even basic chicken wings are very good. It has a reasonable beer choice that is fairly priced. Expect to pay extra for the specialty of the house. More...
Excellent food. Everything I have had here is great! (I recommend the pulled pork or brisket sandwiches with grilled veggies.)
I myself didn't eat but everything that came to tables looked awesome
Great food. The service was average but the food was great
Great local BBQ restaurant. Try the wings!
Always good beer and I can hardly wait for my food as it is always fantastic!!!
First time eating at Dr.J's today and it certainly won't be the last. The most delicious meal I've had in ages! Brisket on rye with sweet potato fries is to die for! My friend had the burger with vegetables and she loved it as well. Can't wait to go back! More...
One of the best BBQ places in Ontario, if not Canada.
Every time I go, I am always impressed by the food! The service is great, the prices are fair and the taste is unique. Dr. J's is my go-to restaurant for all sorts of occasions. More...
Amazing food. Long wait, well worth it. Casual and cool atmosphere.
Pretty good food! Very loud atmosphere and always packed. Good place to come watch the game and have some ribs.
Amazing place! Some of the best food in town! If you're a tourist and looking for an interesting meal make sure you drop by here! Everything is smoked out back in the owners smoker! Amazing! More...
Would have been 5, if they hadn't run out of brisket
Great food, great beer selection, this is on my list for the next time I go to Peterborough
Amazing. Always amazing food never a single complaint. Just wish my belly was bigger so i could order more food. Great bang for the buck.
Great food and atmosphere. Go Jay's!!
Great food - love their poutine with smoked BBQ meet on top! Decent beer selection and fun crowd. I'd definitely go again
Food is amazing.
Very delicious if you are looking for amazing BBQ you have to try this! The pulled pork is absolutely mouth watering- easily the best I've ever tasted
Fantastic BBQ and a great staff
Best BBQ in Ptbo!
Great quality food at a reasonable price! Low and slow is the way to go
Good service and really good catfish and seasoned fries. Ceasar salad wasnt great
Jordan Matchett - Realtor
Great smoked meats and the mac and cheese is the best thing ever. Decent cocktails and beer selection. I'll definitely be getting them to cater an event in the future!
Grilled Salmon was great! Almost as good as the Prime rib burger!!
Everything is delicious
Best BBQ in the city!
The best BBQ and good people
Amazing ribs, cole slaw, chicken and home made corn bread. Ordered all deserts and all were fantastic. The food is awesome, fresh and unique. Staff is friendly and vibe inside is a hybrid pub / sports bar. They smoke meat outside in parking lot all day. Must have if you're in Peterborough, ON!! More...
Best bbq meat place in town
One of the best burgers I have ever had.
Have never had a bad meal here - this is not fine dining, it is BBQ and very good BBQ. The brisket is always moist and the house-made wing sauces are awesome. Even the salads are very good if you're into that. More...
Delicious corn bread, good ribs and Caesar salad comes with bacon bits big enough to stab with a fork and chew!
Amazing prime rib burger, great service, good music
Food is fantastic here.
As a tennessean, born in North Carolina, this is probably the best take on proper BBQ I've had north of the boarder - albeit I haven't had a ton up here. But the pork and brisket are solid and the sides were on point! More...
This place is amazing!! Great food and staff
Addison was really helpful and the ribs are all gluten free. Also they are amazing! Great place and awesome service.
Best BBQ in town.
Only had the beef brisket on rye it's amazing.
Omg amazing brisket was tender
Staff was very helpful on deciding what to order. Went with the wings and personally they are the best in Peterborough. Nice place
Great southern BBQ
Been at least five times and everything I have tried has been delicious. You will not regret a visit to this outstanding and reasonably priced restaurant.
Hands down best food...and I'm a vegetarian! Other reviews arnt lying about the smoked meat im told but the goat cheese beat salad is wicked. Try it with the deeply delicious Mac and cheese. Chef Eric always has his famous southern baked beans ready for maybe a Sunday lunch or anytime. My wife loves the Ceaser salad with their mouth awaking, in house, smoked thick cut bacon bits.The waitresses are award winning from the 2015 best waitress award, no doubt.Daniel Kernya is a reputable food analyst working throughout the Ontario, Canada region. He has a the inate ability to find delicacies in any environment due to his ballin ways. #nofear #luvhashtags More...
I was familiar with the location from the Montreal House days, so I was pleasantly surprised with the interior face-lift of the venue. Great BBQ variety, lots of tasty southern inspired sides (Mac & cheese is awesome!) Generous portions to share. Will definitely now be thinking of this place to return to! FYI: there's no kids menu. More...
It's a great little place for bbq. I've been here twice, I visit Peterborough for work, and decided to try it. First time I had the ribs with the beet salad and mac and cheese. It was delicious. Staff was very attentive. It can get busy and as with my second visit. Had the wings and they were really good too. Over all my experience was positive and I would definitely suggest going to this place. More...
We had our work Christmas party here last night, I was blown away at the efforts of the owner to make our party awesome. The food was amazing. If you want to go somewhere that you have no chance of being disappointed Dr Js is the place. I have been here about 10 times and everytime the service and food is 5 star quality. More...
Great Food and great service.
Bar none the best smoked meat in the city. Actually the best all round dining experience I have had in this town. The owner was so friendly and the service was excellent , From the appetizer to the deliciously authentic southern sweet potato pie the culinary delights just would not quit. Perfect presentation, served hot and a great selection of sides for a small menu I enjoyed the meal start to finish. I will go again, and again and so on.... LOVE THIS PLACE More...
