I’ve been coming to the Cookhouse for over 10 years and it has never disappointed. They make some of the best BBQ in Connecticut and if you drive by it you’ve made a mistake. The barn-like atmosphere is super comfortable and perfect for what is being served up. We had the special Poutine appetizer and it was amazing. Hoping it gets added to the regular menu. More...

Food was amazing. The service was great. We ordered and our food came out so fast even tho they were pretty busy. The layout is awesome and it looks so much bigger inside than from the outside. I will definitely come back here cause the prices weren't to bad for how good the food was More...

Got the “Triple Play.” The brisket was pretty good. The French fries were terrible. I’m surprised they are considered a “premium” side. The diet soda was defiantly flat. Got a second soda and it was the same. The service was great. I’d go back. More...

Was there last night, and immediately texted my BBQ fam in CT, NH and VA invitations to meet me here at once. Pulled pork sandwich in the "triple play" had me swearing out loud, it was so good. But the brisket? Holy %$@#! people... hog heaven for BBQ fans. You could build a business out of the Louisiana meat pies alone. I already have planned next weekend to include the Cookhouse and will be bringing people I love to enjoy it, with me. More...

Food price / quality ratio 8.5.  Atmosphere is like a barn, with two floors of dining, with an open design.  Barbecue is their specialty, but there is plenty of other things on the menu including burgers , sandwiches, and other pub style offerings.  Fun place, good party spot with large bar.

This is GREAT BBQ! The Cookhouse is a Connecticut institution. They were doing BBQ before it became "a thing" and the quality has always been top notch. Of course, all of the favorites are there. Pulled pork, brisket, chicken, etc. The portions are substantial and the sides are to die for! There are platters, sandwiches, mix and match options... Lots of choices! They also have an amazing bar, which in and of itself is a good reason to visit. The atmosphere is fantastic! The building is made to look like a big red Barn, both inside and out. Service has always been courteous and swift. If you're in New Milford and hungry drop what you're doing and go to The Cookhouse *now*. More...

They have the best barbecue around. Period, Amen. Their prices have slowly increased over the years though. Which has made me become experienced at making my own ribs and pulled pork, instead of dishing out a lot of money for what's known as the cheapest meat there is.

I live in NY and work in CT. I’ve past this place on many times, telling myself I have to come and checkout the food. The smell from the smoked foods is like a hypnotic aroma that demands your attention. I tried a sample platter of everything. It was perfectly smoked and seasoned. Service was great as well. I will be back to try other dishes in the future. More...

Omg.  3 words- pulled pork sandwich. Delicious and always on point.  Great choices- the garlic mashed potatoes are amazing. Good service and good parking.  Only negatives are it's a bit crowded regarding the seating and, frankly, I don't want to know what's on the floor.  Worth it, though. Once you bite into that BBQ, the floor is that last thing on your mind. More...

Wonderfully large seating space inside that has a refreshingly normal volume level.  That lead to a great conversation where my friend and I did not have to scream at each other.The menu is wonderfully diverse.  While this is a BBQ place, anyone should be able to find something good to eat.  I had the chicken fried steak while my friend had the appetizer sampler.  In both cases the food was good and the portion sizes were so large, we both went home with doggy bags.I will definitely be returning to The Cookhouse.

We had the best dinner experience here tonight!  The kids menu offers great options.  Our waiter was super friendly and helpful, we never had a moment where we were wanting him to come back and waiting on him. The food was delicious. My husband and I both took home leftovers as the portions were very large.  The pulled pork was super juicy and tasty.  Even my daughter's chicken fingers and fries tasted better than the average kids meal serving. The building is a  beautiful restoration and we had a comfortable booth.  All around the perfect Friday night out! More...

No frills BBQ place with excellent food. Definitely one of the best BBQ meals I've ever had. We started with the fried pickles which were very good, for my meal I had the combo with ribs & pulled pork, creamed spinach and fries on the side. Everything was very tasty and fresh. We were told beforehand it's one of the top BBQ places on the East Coast and we were not disappointed! More...

Stopped for a late lunch after purchasing a new refrigerator due to Hurricane last week. It was a much needed time out since we were without electric for four days and ice & coolers were just not cutting it. Busy spot, reservations only taken for larger parties. We got a table without any wait thanks to a young gentleman who gave up his place in line to us. The waiting area when you walk in is very tight to accommodate three people let alone the additional two people that walked in behind us. We sat at a high top table for two in the bar section which was the last table available in there.The margaritas were very tasty & cold. Our lunch came out fairly quickly: the baby back ribs were very good according to my friend and my fruit and nut salad with added grilled shrimp was excellent. The only reason I gave it four stars and not five stars was the wait to place our order as there was only one waitress for seven tables. More...

Went to The Cookhouse the other day with my friend and she was adamant about us getting nachos. Which I happily complied. They were awesome!!!!! But they also did have faults. Cheese only covered the top.. but the sides with it were amazing!!! The salsa was super fresh and the sour cream was AMAZING. We devoured them!!!! Just wish some of the chips weren't just that. Chips. I wish they were nachos. We also both got the salmon which I absolutely had no complaints about. The salmon was great and cooked to perfection. The horseradish potatoes were great not too over powered. And the creamed spinach was awesome and I can never find any that good anywhere! One weird thing tho.. whatever sauce they add or butter idk but my plate was swimming in it. Which is weird cuz my friends was dry. Still it was delicious. The only thing I was sad about is that this place used to be so filled and packed. I used to come when I was little and it was so lively. Now it's just kinda empty.. my true review would be 3.5 stars cuz the atmosphere was just a bit.. awkward. But the food was truly good. My waitress during this experience was very good. Very nice! A little inattentive but no big deal. Her attitude was great. Way better than the other time I came here.. waitress had a terrible attitude with a snotty look on her face. Clearly did not want to be working. Short girl with long brown hair. Young. Probably 20 y/o.. steer clear. But mine this time was great. Nice girl, curly hair. Was working the bar area. So to sum up, service can be hit or miss.. atmosphere used to be lively but now is a bit quiet.. but food is amazing! I will definitely go back. More...

I haven't been here in years, and when Bestie invited me out for my birthday dinner, she suggested here. Not one to turn down barbecue, I readily agreed, and off we went. Honestly, the place hasn't changed much since my last visit, but, somehow, it seemed a bit smaller than I remember. We found seats at the bar, and ordered celebratory martinis--SURPRISE! They actually had Stolynichia! After a couple, we decided to order. The smoked duck seemed to be calling my name, and Bestie decided on the Tombo-Combo, a bit of five different meats -  ribs, chicken, pulled pork, sausage and brisket. Each came with a choice of two sides, and we both picked dirty rice and country greens. Food came out quickly, and we dug in. My duck had just enough smoke to make itself known, but not enough to hide the flavor of the meat. It was moist, but I would have liked a bit more of the orange-bourbon sauce for it. Bestie's dinner was large, and she sampled a little of everything, and took the rest home. We were both disappointed in the sides. The dirty rice seemed to be simply steamed rice with some sausage bits thrown in. It lacked the consistency of rice sauteed in a trinity (onions, celery, peppers) and sausage grease. The greens were bland, and lacked the hint of smoke from smoked bones/ham hocks in the cooking liquid. I actually had to add salt to it to give them flavor. Also, we were given squeeze bottles of BBQ sauce, one mild, one hot. Neither of us thought the hot sauce was that spicy, and it was just a little different from the mild. Of course, this is Western CT, not an area known for its barbecue. Most people here would find a true hot sauce too hot (Personally, I prefer sweet sauces, like a Carolina vinegar sauce rather than the thick, tomato-based sauces. Plus, hotness becomes a contest in machoism, especially on wings, and detracts, rather than enhances).   The service, however, was impeccable! Becca, our bartender/server, was spot on with meeting all our requests, and mixing the perfect martinis. She was a delight!All in all, if you're a fan of great smoked meats, this is where The Cookhouse shines. More...

My 1st time there. Sat at the bar to eat. Bartender was very nice and friendly. Had a lot of patience with us and our changed drink orders. Prime Rib was off the Hook. Excellent smoke taste with a smoke ring. Seasoned very good and cooked to a perfect medium rare. I recommend this place to several friends after my visit there. I will be a return guest. I also peeped all the equipment in the kitchen. No short cuts there either. More...

I've been a fan and a regular customer despite the distance, just a bit too far to come here more than occasionally. Over the 15+ years I've been coming here, I've experienced very consistent quality across the menu and almost invariably good service. I am a particular fan of the "heart attack on a plate" nachos, which they actually seem to care about doing right -- many places with nachos on the menu skimp on ingredients and they're disappointing especially when they're ordered as an entree. But every time I have the nachos here, they're world class. I like the fact that they have salads with a BBQ theme, so the healthier-minded in my party were able to find something they enjoyed. The ribs and pulled pork are consistently great as well. My other favorite is the "Fat Tommy's Flatboy," a jerked chicken & pork sandwich on grilled flatbread with cheese, onions, etc. Desserts are usually pretty good though can vary in quality/quantity at times.

Don't expect an intimate atmosphere, but expect expect good background music and delicious BBQ such as pulled pork, andouille, and my personal favorite of theirs-- smoked duck! The proportions are so huge you can expect to have dinner for up to two days after, depending on your appetite! The family dinner is always a great idea since you get lots of food and a choice of several meats and sides. More...

Excellent BBQ. From the south where BBQ is king next to football and the pulled pork with the sweet sauce was excellent. In Alabama we are used to a tomato based sauce that is less sweet and more "tangy" and this sweet sauce was just as good. The baked beans were great with a smoky chili taste. The cole slaw was good but I'm used to a more vinegar creamy sauce. The selection of draft craft beers was small but still good. Overall I'd highly recommend The cookhouse More...

So Ive been here twice and both times I really enjoyed myself. First time I had the tombo combo which was hugh and delicious. It comes with 5 of there bbq items, ribs, chicken, pulled pork, sausage and brisket. -Ribs were on spot, meat slide off the bone, good smokey crust, nice sweet bbq sauce. -Chicken was good however with all the other amazing food it was my least favorite. It's hard to keep chicken moist but they did a pretty good job. Subtle charred flavor. went well with a little bit of bbq sauce. -Pulled pork was tender and not over cooked where the meat gets dried out, i prefer kalua pork  (hawaii's version of pulled smoked pork) better, but this is the next best thing, plus the bbq sauce is good. Next is sausage, so tasty. Nicely grilled, amazing hammy flavor. -Last but not least brisket, so soft, so tender, nice pink smoke ring, good smokey crust. One of the best briskets I've had. The Tombo combo also comes with 2 sides. My wife had the salmon which was also good. Nicely grilled crust, moist flakey inside, cooked perfectly. My 2nd visit was for lunch. I had the Fat Tommy Flattboy. One of the best sandwiches I've had. It's a grilled flatbread with pulled pork, pulled chicken, caramelized onions, pepper jack cheese and Comeback Sauce (kind of like a spicy mayo). This sandwich had me saying "Mmmm" every bite. Cant wait to try there other sammies and happy hour items 4-7pm M-F. More...

I LOVE The Cookhouse, but alas, since their prices are kind of steep (granted, it's easy to pig out there and that doesn't keep the price down), it's best saved for special occasions. The couple of times I went there in 2011/2012, the food was EXCELLENT. I got steak, I think with creamed spinach, and that was phenomenal. The menu item that sticks out the MOST in my memory is the BBQ Sundae. OH.MY.GOD!!! If you go there for anything, go there for the BBQ Sundaes! They are basically a Mason jar, full of mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, and pulled pork. They are so good that I'm halfway tempted to try to re-create one at home, but I know it wouldn't be as good as the one at The Cookhouse! More...

I have been to The Cookhouse many times over the years and have rarely been disappointed. Growing up in CT, I haven't had 'real' BBQ many times in my life, but I think this fits the bill if you have a hankering and are in the New Milford Area. The decor fits the food in a barn - style, 3 floor restaurant (stairs can get daunting but they aren't too bad). Good for large families as its more on the casual side.They always start you out with cornbread and biscuits with a specialty butter which is delicious. Over the years I've had the fat tommy's flat boy many times (delicious), pulled pork, brisket, you name it! The cookhouse ale (their own) is also a good drink choice if your in the mood for a specialty beer. You can tell everything has been slow cooked to perfection and there are menu options for everyone (salads, burgers, etc if you aren't in the mood for BBQ). As others have posted, my only 2 complaints are about the fruit flies (I have been at various times of the year and they are always around, which gets very annoying when you're trying to eat), As well as the short turnaround time for your food to be delivered. While I certainly don't want to be waiting an hour for my entree, even if I order an appetizer the main course seems to come ~4 minutes later which makes for a very short dining experience. I do understand that on the weekends this place gets very crowded and that the meal 'prep' is pretty much done once our orders are placed, so it isn't the biggest deal.All in all I definitely recommend!

My girlfriend and myself to a ride up to see Candlewood Lake and were looking for some place different to eat. We looked for restaurants in the area and stumbled upon Cookhouse. Upon arriving you can't help but notice the sweet aroma of smoked barbecue filling the air. We sat down and was promptly greeted by a server named Tim. He was very attentive and knowledgeable about all of the items on the menu. We ordered the beef rib tips with beef brisket and pork ribs. I was very impressed and I am a barbecue connoisseur. Keep up the good work!! More...

We were very impressed with the service in the cookhouse.  There was only a waitress and a waiter (who was probably supposed to be the bartender) but they made it work. The place was packed for 2:45 on a Monday and we definitely saw why. The BBQ was super delicious and the smoked taste was incredible. The waiter Tim was very knowledgeable with his pairing suggestions. This is something we definitely appreciated. He suggested a delicious bourbon to compliment the short ribs. The sides were good. Nothing spectacular, regular steakhouse sides, but they almost need to be to emphasize how good the meat is. We were definitely pleased. The only issue t
