Dreamland bbq is a cool spot to have great bbq. Eclectic ambiance but very unpretentious. The staff was great and very accommodating. I had a half rack of ribs which was more than I can handle! They do have combo plates which have smaller portions.......More

This "famous" barbeque restaurant relocated around the corner to a former brewery restaurant & kept the brewery. Felt like I was out of town at a great sports bar restaurant. Lots of tv's, different beer brands & wine. And it is a block away from...More

I came in from Austin, TX to play some golf at the RTJ Trail Capital Hill in Pratville. Montgomery is much closer than I thought (20 minutes) and has a lot more to offer in the evenings for dinner / drinks. Definitely hit up Dreamland....More

I love the smell of BBQ and this spot does not disappoint. The service was great. We had the BBQ onion dip appetizer and I had ribs and my brother had a chicken/pork plate. Everything was really good. I recommend this spot for any occasion....More

Father T, we couldn't have said it better ourselves. The ribs are pit cooked over an open fire, rustic for sure! Thanks for letting us know about your visit, see you soon.

As evacuees from hurricane IRMA we are used to very good ribs in Naples, Florida. However, Dreamland's ribs were as good or better. Also loved the house micro brew.
