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.

Our server was newly hired and she gave us excellent friendly service! Our food was the best we have ever had there! Excellent green salad, pizza that was great tasting and a started of seared tuna that was done to perfection!

A nice brasserie where we had good red wine by the glass and two delicious salads.
The service was attentive and this tavern is well located in the heart of Downtown. Parking was not difficult.

We came here for Father’s Day. The staff was nice and the restaurant was beautiful but the food was expensive for the portion size. The burgers didn’t taste very fresh. The burgers tasted like they were frozen.

Wonderful food, friendly service and great outdoor seating on a nice day! So glad Brix is back open after the long quarantine. Can’t beat their happy hour! Everything on the menu is great - the calamari, chicken pot pie and Brix chips are ridiculous. We’ll be returning very soon to do it all again.

We came here for Fathers Day for the first time. (Also, right after the opening back up after Covid so maybe they had some kinks to workout) they gave us 3 delicious donuts when we arrived. I got the Eggs benadict. I would not recommend this to someone because they use corn cakes instead of the traditional English muffin. The corn cakes were pretty flavorless and crumbly. The hashbrowns were cold and also had zero flavor. My husband seemed to like his entree, the steak skillet. I was also disappointed with the children’s French toast. It was so soggy my toddler wouldn’t eat it. It was literally one slice of bread for $6. The menu said it came with fruit... the fruit was one small slice of orange and one small slice of strawberry not even a full strawberry. I might try this place again but not for brunch.

Ambiance was completely Portland vibes! A manager was nice enough to get me some water while we waited. Hostess was sweet and respectful. We asked for a booth table and she put us in the bar but kindly changed our table when I asked for a booth. Server was pleasant and delightful! Wore a mask the entire visit during the COVID dining experience. We loved it. We will most certainly be back. My favorite part was the almond French toast, delicious!

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

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!
