This is always a “must stop” whenever we are in Portland. We always take people with us and no one is ever disappointed in what they order. It’s a crowd favorite. The menu is inventive and the atmosphere is fun. Service is great.
Group faves include: Brix Chips, chicken tacos, fried chicken and mashed potatoes (the mashed potatoes are unreal), wedge salad, all the flavored real lemonades...we could go on and on. (And the cheese fondue with bread is heaven on a dish)

Brix Tavern is the best place to have brunch in Portland. The mimosas are bomb and the price is just right. We went on a Saturday morning at 9:45 and it was relatively quiet. The portions were incredibly good for the price. The shrimp and grits was amazing. I got the Brix waffle which was sooo yummy. I definitely recommend this place! Best place in Portland!

We ordered our food and it came in a good amount of time but we had three different servers. Not one of them came to refill our drinks and I never received a drink I ordered. When we were sat down there was no response from that person about who are server was going to be or when she will see us. I had a baby and they never offered me a booster or a high chair I had to ask for one. I understand it was busy but all tables around us were getting there drinks filled and questions answered. When we did ask for our server it was poor attitudes from them. Like we were in convincing them.

Sunday evening was very busy with many graduation celebrations occurring. Staff were working hard, however it appeared meeting the needs of the many customers wasn't possible. Noticed many larger groups waiting for quite awhile for their dinner - our wait time was longer than anticipated but understand the circumstances.

Primary concern was the quality of the food, my dish was simply ok, however my husbands prime rib was tough and although he ordered polenta he received mashed potatoes. That isn't an issue, but the expense of the dinner certainly didn't match the quality received. Normally we would have notified the wait staff, but they clearly were overwhelmed by the number of people in the restaurant. We most likely will not return for another try except perhaps for a drink prior to movies etc.

The food was good - the cocktails were great. Our server was very nice, but definitely took a bit too long bringing us the check. I noticed lots of chatting with other servers. This normally doesn’t bother me, but the wait time was a lot longer than I’d have liked. Overall, it wasn’t a terrible experience.

Had a reservation for 12:15 and the hostess said the table was being prepared once we arrived around 12:10 but we were not seated until around 12:45. Service was slow but the people were nice and the food was delicious. A few food errors but the manager took care of it.

We were in the Whiskey Room with about 20 people for my husband's 40th birthday this past Saturday. We should have known the evening was going to turn out poorly when my sister-in-law wanted to bring in balloons and they didn't have our reservation correct. From that point on it was all downhill. The server was spread way too thin. She was serving us, the upstairs private dining area, and some other tables. She was not friendly or welcoming and we were a crowd ready to spend. We got our first round of drinks in a reasonable amount of time and the appetizers came out quickly, but then any other drinks we wanted to order (or even our food orders) were far too slow. When asked for our food order, we had already been sitting for quite some time with empty drinks. So, when asked for our food order, we wanted to order our second round of drinks and she was not prepared to take those orders with our food. We had to wait again for her to come back for the drink order. At that point my husband and his friends went to the bar to order as they were tired of waiting so long. The server was frustrated they went to the bar, but the amount of time we were waiting for anything was unreasonable. When food finally arrived, my mother-in-law did not receive her salad. She asked to have it boxed and they brought it out plated. She was told she wouldn't be charged. She was. My husband and I ordered steak and it was hammered. If we were on a date, just the two of us, we would have sent it back. After all of this, our checks came out and we wanted to just hand our cards off so the server could run them and we could move on with our night. She would not take them, so we had to wait...again. With the time we had to wait, we figured out that my husband received my brother-in-law's exact bill. For a private event, it was handed terribly by the staff. I'm more than disappointed with The Brix Tavern and service they provided on my husband's birthday celebration.

While we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, and the service was amazing, I most likely will not return. I was required to leave a credit card number when making the reservation. I then received a phone call asking me to confirm 2 days before the reservation, which I did return promptly. I also received an email reminding me of the reservation. I then received a second phone call 10 minutes before the reservation while we were looking for parking. We were not late. There was absolutely no reason to call me again to confirm. For these reasons we will not return. Requiring a credit card was unusual, but 2 phone calls and an email was excessive. Especially considering the restaurant was never full while we were there. There was not anyone waiting for a table when we arrived. They were definitely not busy enough to warrant the phone calls and credit card requirement.

Lively place with interesting decor. Unfortunately the two things that count MOST - food and service - were only so-so. One wilty salad, unremarkable calzone, stingy beet salad and generally inattentive service mean I probably won't return.

We came for a birthday celebration, made reservations. Once we got there our waitress was rude the entire time. The birthday girl ordered a burger and it was literally cold and raw. We told the waitress, no apology was given and she stated she would have them put it back on the grill...I'd assume you would make a brand new burger and say sorry. 15-20 minutes past before she came out to tell us it was on its way. We asked for a box to go and she looked surprised. The manager was aware of this too and he didn't apologize. We weren't even comped for it on the bill. Literally terrible service and I actually use to consider this my favorite spot in Portland. Rudest workers I have ever encountered.

Good solid "American Food", but no great culinary wonders. The menu is fairly large, so a good option for groups. Good variety of wine options by the glass or carafe. It's definitely a pub atmosphere with sports on big screens and a young drinking crowd, but not terribly noisy. We found the service to be very good, friendly and attentive but not overly so.
