With a mix of casual smokehouse cuisine and affordable prices, Fuel Woodfire Grill has arrived to fill a niche in the downtown Port Huron dining scene.
What is Fuel Woodfire Grill? It is a restaurant that was born nearly twenty years ago, at least in the mind of Owner and Founder, Mike Taylor. It has evolved a lot over the last twenty years, and finally opened its doors on May 6th, 2011. With only 75 seats and a shoestring budget, Fuel opened with the goal of bringing unique smokehouse cuisine to Downtown Port Huron. Port Huron responded and approved! Within its first year of operation, Taylor, with some help from family, friends, and supporters alike took advantage of an empty space next door and expanded the restaurant.
What is Smokehouse Cuisine? Simply put it’s good old fashioned BBQ with a twist! Fuel features all of the staples of a BBQ restaurant from fall off the bone Baby Back Ribs to Texas Style Brisket. In addition items like our Smokehouse Burger, and Cold Smoked Ribeye Steak push the limits of flavor beyond that of traditional BBQ. Throughout the menu, there is a commitment to “buck the norm” in search of that special one of a kind experience.
As a compliment to the unique full flavored food, Fuel proudly maintains one of the area’s largest selections of craft beers. Craft beer, much like the food at Fuel, requires great quality ingredients, time, and most of all love. The beer selection at Fuel is constantly changing in order to offer guests the opportunity to try new and interesting craft brews every time they visit.
Fuel resides in the middle of Historic Downtown Port Huron, in a building built more than 125 years ago. Original tin ceilings, brick and mortar, and hardwood floors have been restored and refinished to add character and warmth to the restaurant. While the true origin of the name “Fuel” is a carefully guarded trade secret, the decor of the restaurant plays off the name and features vintage artwork of old fuel pumps and service stations, which is fitting considering the historic nature of its location.
