A word from Brittingham's Pub
A Progressive Public House... We believe in the idea of the "pub" mentality. Creating a "home away from home" for our guest and staff alike. We take the same mantra on in the experience we plan to deliver. That being said, we are taking it to the next level, with food and drink that doesn"t alienate and service and atmosphere that create a contemporary party! We are local, we are community, we are loyal and we are kind!

    Terrible, we were made to eat in the bar while football enthusiasts were drinking at the bar. It was extremely loud and the walls were open to the outside which made it so cold you had to wear a coat. We and several other patrons asked to be moved to someplace other than the bar, we were told it was the only room open. The food was sub par, I won't be back.

    We were looking forward to visiting the renovated Pub, but were so disappointed. While the food was OK, it was a bit over priced. Even though we had made reservations, the location of our table was poor. The windows of the bar were open, the sitting area was extremely cold and the band was setting up around us.

    My friend and I had not been to Brittingham's in many years and were shocked by the rennovation but also delighted. We could see some of the original underpinnings; recognized the brass elephants on the old bar; thought the outdoor (indoor when colder weather comes) bar was clever; din of the happy hour crowd bodes well for longevity. Our flat bread was well made, came piping hot, as did our fish and chips. Mix of menu is unusual but will return to try other items. Beer menu extensive. Music good but in main dining area loud making conversation challenging. Service was unrushed but at the old bar pre dinner bordering on disinterested and at dinner could have been considered slow if we werent so engrossed in catching up

    I chose Brittinghams for live music on a Sat night. I brought two friends who were visiting from out of town. We are all fairly health conscious and found the menu to be extremely limited in healthy choices. It was too bad because the place is nice, server was great and it's a great neighborhood spot for me. I would try it again if the menu was different.

    We have been here twice now, and both times were wonderful experiences. The first time we ate here it was for a Friday night dinner, and the most recent time was for Sunday brunch. Service was excellent both times and the food is great. They have a nice wine list, cocktail list and beer selection. Both times we were here we ate outside, once at a table and once at the bar. I would consider this some of the nicest outdoor seating in the area. The have awesome fire pits that really add character, but also provide warmth on the cooler nights.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the recent "makeover" was to Brittingham's. The upstairs deck was great and the service matched. We asked for an umbrella to shade out the sun and it was promptly brought over. Our server was attentive and did not rush us out even though it was a Saturday evening. Food was good and cooked to order. I would definitely return!

    Very nice renovation. Plenty of room and different locations for dining. The roof-top seating is a great way to increase table space. Dinner was good Great salad. Short rib sandwich was very tasty but a bit dry. Mushroom flat bread looked amazing. Hamburger was very good as well.

    We had a great experience at Brittinghams's. The outdoor areas are great as well as the indoor/outdoor dining area. Cocktails were tasting and everyone enjoyed the meal. We ordered a cheese platter for the table. All the cheese was good, served with excellent bread. Everyone particularly liked the spreads that came with the cheese platter. This is a great place, especially when the weather is good!

    Pretty and nice people with great alcohol, but the food has already gone downhill. My trout which I had ordered the last time was icky and the potatoes and asparagus were watery. The fish and chips were so bready that one had to wonder if the fish was even present. The pickles were good. The salad was lettuce with almonds - really? That was it. The chicken pot pie was so -so and the biscuit kind of wet. Go there to drink and eat more junky foods with friends. Don't go to eat. The ambiance is great.

    Getting reservations was quick and easy. Was hoping for an outside table, but no luck. We were seated immediately and our orders we're taken quickly. We had four children with us. Our appetizers came out 45 minutes after ordering and our dinner an hour and a half after sitting. The kids were STARVING! I would only recommend this place for the outside bar, nothing else. The food isn't all that good and the service is horrible!

    The new Brittingham's is beautiful. The space is warm and inviting. The menu has some diverse options but the execution of many of them was weak. The curry and the burger were enjoyed. The other dishes we got were underwhelming. Some over-cooked, others lacking flavor. Service was great and hopefully the food will catch up.

    We recently enjoyed dinner on a Tuesday; our 6:30 reservation meant that things were not too noisy, at least at the outdoor tables. My guest's drink order was flawed because she wanted a gin Martini but the house special was made with vodka; however, my house Manhattan was delicious. We shared an order of "middleneck" clams (very tasty) and I had the mushroom soup (nice and thick) while my guest had a small salad (piled high in a soup bowl, it was enough to entirely cover the dinner plate we had to ask for). We each ordered the trout entree, which was delicious but served atop a mere garnish size portion of vegetables. It took a while to get and pay for the check. Extra parking is available across the street despite the "will tow" signs.

    We sat on the "roof-top deck" at Brittinghams. They have a wonderful outdoor dining setup and a nice atmosphere. The service seemed a little disjointed as it took well over 10 minutes for someone to come and greet us after sitting (and then another server came over within 2 minutes of the first to take our drink order again). The service was friendly and knowledgeable but did take some time (maybe the servers having to go up/down the stairs?) We weren't in a rush so we just enjoyed the atmosphere during the wait! The food is very good, somewhat limited menu--it was definitely difficult to pick an appetizer that looked great. Entrees and sandwiches looked great! Will definitely return as the weather continues to get nicer

    I made a reservation for my wife's first mother's day brunch. She had been itching to check out the remodeled Brittingham's and we weren't disappointed. We were in the first seating, but walked right in and sat down. The special menu had lots of good choices, I had the Snooze Alarm (a breakfast sandwich with sausage, eggs, and bacon and my wife had an omelet. Both were very good and the drinks a mimosa and bloody mary were good compliments to the meal. Our 5 month old son accompanied us and even though they need his high chair for all the families coming in, they mad up for it with a complimentary dessert. Will definitely go back and the remodel looks great!

    We went for Mothers Day Brunch and it seems they couldn't handle simple requests. We asked if my son could have just one pancake and the waitress told us that they couldn't do that since they're so busy. When the pancakes did arrive they didn't come with the fruit that they're supposed to. The food overall was bland and quite average. I can't recommend Brittingham's, at least not for Brunch.

The food was very good & the service excellent, even though the place was packed. The heaters installed as a permanent part of the deck took off the chill later in the evening

    If the food could only reach it's full potential in this beautifully renovated building, life would be good. I hope they make substantial improvements to the food before it's tool late. Menu needs major overhaul and upgraded preparation. I will give them one more try & hope for much better next time. Perfect place if you just want a drink, but the food should be their main focus.

    The renovations intrigued us, we are a small family and made reservations for a Saturday night. After reading the reviews we specifically requested a table away from the bar. We were seated not far from a bar, which was empty at the time we sat down... Not worth complaining... The waitress was pleasant, although while ordering we had to raise our voices to be heard. The noise level was absurd. Not what you would expect. Our teenage son's food was cold and even he found the sound level disturbing. The menu was somewhat limited. Most upsetting was the piece if bone I found in my chicken BBQ sandwich. I didn't complain; my husband felt it wasn't worth it and at that point he just wanted to pay our bill and get out!
