A word from Brickside Food & Drinks
Welcome!

Brickside Food & Drink was built on a single vision: create a fun, relaxed environment to enjoy delicious eclectic food, creative drinks and neighborly service. The fun starts at an energized Happy Hour, continues through dinner and when late night rolls around the music gets a little louder, the lights a little lower, and the drinks flow a little faster. Our open and airy bar and dining room areas offer you four 50" plasma TVs and a 12' HD projector so you never miss a game or event. Our climate controlled elevated terrace allows you to be outside year round to eat, drink and people watch.

    Really excellent gnocchi with rib meat, and the burger is something to remember. Our serveuse was really fun and nice, which made the experience of really good neighborhood dinner all the more outstanding. I'm looking forward to returning. The problem is my dish was so god I might order it again! The cheesecake was also excellent.

    It's a high end sports bar. Nice menu but stick to basics. Good apps. Great place for beers w friends and to watch the game. If you're focus is the food then look elsewhere.

    Asked for booth told we couldn't have one as reserved for larger parties. Shortly thereafter, a couple was seated at one. When we left many 4 tops still available. Food was terrible even for bar food. Bussers removed dishes from husband before he was finished eating. Way too many places to choose from in Bethesda to waste time and money here. Big thumbs down.

    Way too loud but probably a good place to go if all you want to do is watch sports on a massive TV screen!

    The service was slow and there was no one at the hostess stand when I came in. After waiting for over 5 minutes, someone asked me if I was waiting to be seated. When I gave my name they told me my party was already seated as if I should have known that already. The service was slow and the noise from the bar was overwhelming. The food was mediocre. I would not go back.

    Dined on 2/23/2013
    Food was good. Service was very good. But the space seems engineered to be noisy. The restaurant was full, but not crowded. But I felt like every conversation in the room was being reflected off the walls to me. Both my date and I were relieved to get outside where we could actually talk instead of yelling our conversation.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 2/22/2013
    Using Open Table I made reservations for my wife and me, so we were seated right away by the courteous hostess upon arrival. It was Friday night so the bar area was fool and vibrant. I will say that for a dinner for two, the dining area was a bit loud. However, accepting that it was the tail end of Fri evening happy hour - the energy was understandable and good to see. The service was prompt, efficient, and well executed without being overbearing. Sharon, our server, was outstanding. She was fun and lively. She was enthusiastic and helpful with menu recommendations. The striped bass and the All American burger were delicious. I can always claim a bigger portion of fish would be nice. I highly recommend the cauliflower side.
