Comfort Food
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.

My friends and I were sat in the large back room but had only about 6 of us. The service was incredibly slow and the waitress kept forgetting about us. We ordered bottomless mimosas but only got a couple each because her attention was elsewhere and it seems like she couldn’t have cared less about us.
By the time we got our food it was lukewarm, but good. I highly recommend reminding your waiters that there are people in the back room and to not neglect them. Everyone else was being served elsewhere and it was incredibly frustrating on our end.

Took a chance and chose Brix Tavern based on reviews and ratings. Coming up from Salem it’s always a gamble to pick something new after driving 45 miles buy We were not disappointed at all!
Service was great The menu had a nice variety and the food was fantastic. I had the shrimp and grits and it was the best I’ve ever had! My husband tried the crispy chicken and said the best part was the gravy!! The daisy cocktail with huckleberry infused vodka was scrumptious and we cannot wait to go back!!!

Food, waitress service and ambience were great; however, the hostess was unwilling to help our table with a quick and simple request

Found multiple hairs in my food. The waitress didn’t seem to care but did credit my meal.

Had a bridal brunch here and it was great! Loud and not a lot of room to wait for our table, but once we were seated it was fine. Great food and delicious donuts that were complimentary and unexpected! Everyone’s orders came out rather quick and were correct.

Always a fun place to go for brunch! We made a reservation but still usually have to wait to be seated, though a lot less time than if we had tried to come without a reservation at all!

Three of us ordered the prime rib (medium rare) and one ordered their's medium. The person who ordered it medium got medium. The rest of us got well done meat. What a waste of prime rib! And they tried to cover up the "mistake" with a demi glaze. What happened to to the au jus? I think they didn't want us to see that the meat was over cooked! And the table they sat us at was in an area that was very drafty. Every time the front door was opened, we got a blast of cold air. Had to wear a jacket the entire time to keep warm. And the beer wasn't even that cold.

I have been to Brix before, & this time was much better. I’m not sure if that had to do with it being pretty empty this time. Food was great, mixed drinks were a bit off, & the wait staff was great, if not just short of wonderful this time. Much more accommodating, as opposed to the sass & attitude we received last time, when my girlfriends family was in town and we went to Brix. Over all, this time around it was a wonderful time with friends, good food, & great service. I’m glad we ventured back in, & I’m hoping to find consistency to match the service we received this time around.

Our party mostly ordered off the happy hour menu and everything was tasty. Mostly basic. We had quite a few items to share and four drinks. The total bill came in at about a $100 with tip.

Okay experience, check-in was a bit chaotic (one person running the front desk while trying to figure out if tables are ready, and answering the phone), but once we got seated, service got more collected. Food was okay and the prices were nice (Happy Hour). Not a special experience and I am not sure if would go back, but there was nothing wrong with it either.

Updated Review: Normal dining occasions at Brix is usually great for me and my party. Didn’t have the best experience originally during a Valentine’s dinner occasion due to a menu item selling out but Mary the bar manager reached out to try to make things right.

Gave Brix Tavern another try and the experience/service was definitely back to normal/better. Great for large parties, food tasted great.

The food would have been excellent, but Brix tried to serve too many customers. As a result we waited much too long for our main course and when it finally came it was undercooked.

My advice to Brix - next time make the hard choice to serve fewer customers at a higher level of excellence!
