Already open eight years and counting, this neighborhood establishment is still a go-to for easy drinking, a variety of plates, and overall good times. The frequently updated event calendar keeps the door swinging, and new friends the regulars are always bringing.

Ideal for large groups, the menu features seasonal, global-inspired tavern fare, extensive craft beer offerings and original handcrafted cocktails.

Early and late happy hours keep guests glued to their seats as they get caught up on the latest sports games airing all around the restaurant, and the daily food and drink specials keep locals and visitors alike coming back again and again.

And have you heard the talk about brunch? Those donuts though.

We went there for Mother's day brunch. There was a flat price of $29.99 for each menu item, which seemed high for the quality of the food. The Bloody Mary was tasty, but the food was really underwhelming. My mom and I both ordered the veggie benedict. The cornbread it came on was so bland and flavorless and couldn't be balanced out by the hollandaise sauce because they gave the smallest amount of sauce that barely covered the egg. Good hashbrowns though. My partner ordered the chicken and waffles, and he too was pretty underwhelmed. The meal did come with free desserts and donuts. Both were tasty!

Rushed service. I get it’s Covid and times limited, but was over rushed, in and out in 32 minutes, hard to enjoy meal. Would have enjoyed second beverage if offered.

Went for shrimp and grits but didn’t realize it was only on the brunch menu so, I settled on a grilled cheese and tomato soup which was pretty good. Had a few cocktails which were great! Server was also really good.

Had reservation but stood at front desk for a long time before finally being noticed. Got water and then a long time passed before we were greeted by waitstaff. Was told there was only 1 bartender and you were short staffed so drinks came way late. No chance for a second one. Waitress was friendly and attentive. Food was sub par. Tomatoes in the caprese salad were still slightly green. For the price I'd expect better. Chips were slightly stale on the pork nachos. Just an experience that didn't make me want to come back. Used to LOVE this place.

I was a little underwhelmed by the food. It was fine, but slightly overpriced. The hostess was a beam of light, but it took our waiter a really long time to get our drink orders from us even though we saw several on-the-job members of the wait staff just lingering by the bar and chatting and the restaurant wasn't very full.

Complete change from previous visit.

1. Service was extremely slow
2. Prim Rib was extremely fatty, mine was overcooked and my friend, who ordered hers medium, was Medium Rare/rare
3. My friend's prime rib had a large piece of plastic connected to the bottom of it ??? It was removed from the bill - thank you.
4. Fondue cheese was amazing but the bread was stale.

Only highlight this visit was the hostess {purple hair} she was AMAZING.

So we went for Easter Brunch, $39. Which did NOT include coffee, juice or tea. The normal entree prices were $14-$20ish dollars. So for the extra upcharge you got a mediocre cheese plate with deviled eggs and a small dessert plate. If you’re going to call it brunch just be upfront about what it does/does not include. We still tipped 20% but were not in the least impressed by the experience.

This was the perfect place for an Easter Brunch! We were from out of town and I wasn't sure where to go with our adult family. This turned out to be the perfect place. The service was excellent as well as the food! We liked the ambience too! We loved the different courses they brought out over the course of our brunch. From yummy donuts, to a delicious assortment of desserts! Thank you for helping to make our day special!

Friends recommended Brix Tavern for a first family meal since Covid began. Dis not disappoint. My 11 year old granddaughter’s eyes widened over the donuts which were very tasty. Each person had a different meal and all were happy with their choices.
Would make reservation again.

I understand the covid situation. but when I called to reserve 8 people, I wish I would have been informed that you couldn't sit all of us together and the tables would be separated. I would have understood and that would have help make my decision on having my husband birthday celebration there.. Our friends had to sit at a different table, we weren't able to communicate as much and it felt as thou they were just eating by ourselves. I probably would have choose another location, or just have done something different to make his day more special. It seemed like just a regular dinner.

The Brix happy hour is a favorite of ours! The Brix chips, mac & cheese, calamari and crunch wrap have all been winners. I love the Portland take on a Moscow Mule and he loves the spicy mango, but nothing has been bad that we've tried so far. This is like a weekly regular stop for us.
