A word from Brownstone

Brownstone is a quaint little retreat that transitions into a happening late night hot spot.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Brownstone was not what I was expecting at all. The music was very loud, like being in a club, and there were TVs everywhere, like being in a sports bar. My dinner companions and I could hardly hear each other without shouting. For this reason, I wouldn't go back or recommend it as a dinner spot. That said, the food was very tasty, much better than the ambience would suggest. The service was average."

  • "This was a great place for my boyfriend and I to have our kind of Valentine's day. It was a fun, lively pub, with affordable food, great service and a fun environment."

  • "I was meeting a friend from out of town for brunch just prior to her scheduled departure, so location, prompt and attentive service, in an area quiet enough to hear each other were key elements, closely followed by delicious options, and an attractive friendly atmosphere. Three top rated spots were booked up, but Clery's recommended Brownstone. We couldn't have been more pleased. On OpenTable I asked for a quiet spot to catch up so our booth on the upper tier, toward a corner, away from the bar, but with a good view of other happy diners - perfect. Menu options were intriguing, and we settled on Duck and Sweet Potato Hash and Fritata of the day. Delicious! The House Bloody Marys were spicey and well-garnished. I'll definitely return!!"

  • "this is a convenient place for a drink and relaxed meal; it is not gourmet fare, but the food is good and service efficient; my 20 something daughter liked it"

  • "We were looking for a place to take our son for his birthday, and stumbled upon Brownstones. The food and service were great. The fact that I could make reservations on a Saturday night were anbonus"

  • "I went to brunch this past Sunday. I made a reservation, but the place wasn't very crowded anyway. The food was fantastic. I ordered the chicken and crunchy French toast and ate the whole thing. The chicken was juicy and perfectly seasoned. The French toast was a little bit of heaven. The drinks were really good too. I wish they offered lattes and validated parking. Other than that, I had a positive experience and would go back."

  • "We went with a group of 8 people for my brother's birthday and were quickly seated. Service was prompt and they didn't mind when other friends showed up to join. It was extremely loud though and while we were in a celebratory mood (and probably added to the noise level) it's not a place to have a relaxing conversation."

  • "I wil say that the service is slow. Otherwise, though, the service was friendly and complete. The food was really good and it was surprisingly reasonably priced (the equivalent of a Denny's Lumberjack costs $9). The fried chicken and French toast is great if you're looking for something different. The hash browns/home fries are excellent and the coffee is really good. The best part (esp. For the south end) is that we could get a reservation on a Saturday and the restaurant is big and open so you can actually go with a group and not feel cramped."

  • "Here's a spot in BBY located a few steps from the BBY station. It's location is key as it is easy for those who commute to stop in with friends, grab a bite and beverage, and still make it back to BBY for transit home. Food and service were nice and price was reasonable. A good find along a strip with many choices. The calamari was slightly spicy and the truffle fries were great, which both complimented the Sauvignon Blanc. Hopefully they ail expand the wine by the glass options in the future."

  • "There seemed to be a bit of confusion/lack of clarity among the waitstaff regarding who was supposed to be taking care of us. Because of this, we waited quite a bit after seating, with no apology or recognition. However, once our waitress took our order, we received excellent service. The restaurant was clearly busy, and we appreciated that our server was nonetheless, very pleasant and on top of her game. I wish we could have had the pleasure of having her take care of us as soon as we were seated."

  • "We had brunch on a snowy Sunday morning at 10:30am. The place was pretty quiet when we arrived, but got busier as the morning progressed. The menu was relatively small but had a wide variety of options within it. The server was having a rough morning it seemed, but she was professional, even if not cheerful. My husband had the eggs and potatoes with bacon. I had the "Sammy" which was a great breakfast sandwich. The potatoes were excellent. Everything else was solidly above average, including the drinks. I would definitely go back again."

  • "Had brunch on Sunday. Had all of the basics and a few items that were a little more unusual. I had pulled pork eggs benedict. They were very good. My wife had Frosted Flake coated french toast. It was better than similar dishes we have had at different restaurants. This is a very comfortable neighborhood bar and grill. If we lived nearby I would think we would be there often. Will return for casual dinner sometime."

  • "Perfect for a casual brunch/breakfast. Reasonably priced great tasting food and beverages without a formal setting. Vibe was young adult friends getting together, city strollers and "morning after" meal. Great service and friendly environment."

  • "We had the special appetizer - Korean spiced scallops. Phenomenal! I can't stop thinking about them. I'd also recommend the deviled eggs. The flatbread was disappointing. Don't waste your time there. The menu has incredible options to choose from. You can get flatbread anywhere."

  • "...none of it was hot. Very tasty cream of broccoli soup, but it was tepid. Yummy and properly cooked steak frites, but it was luke-warm. Service was friendly but on the slow side (it the place was almost deserted.)"

  • "After walking by Brownstone for nearly two years we finally decided to try it out for brunch. We were pleasantly surprised. Unlike many brunches we have had in the area the portions were very large and quite affordable. Our group tried everything from omelets & fried eggs to pancakes and waffles, everything was delicious. As someone who judges their breakfast places by their ability to make good home fries, Brownstone did not disappoint. The only problem we had was that for a restaurant that was fairly empty on a Sunday morning, the service was a bit slow. Aside from that, we would definitely recommend Brownstone for anyone looking for a low key well prepared breakfast."

  • "Everything was perfect. Hostess, managers, servers all very friendly and accommodating. My group had a great time. We were very impressed with everyone's enthusiasm and the food was very good. I would recommend this place to watch sporting events for sure. Good specials, too."
