Brx is a place where you can take your family or meet with your friends for some quality time and good food and drink. We wanted to create an atmosphere where people could gather casually in a sophisticated, yet down to earth locale.

Brx's large dining room and outdoor patio offer a casual and comfortable ambiance to enjoy our American cuisine influenced by your favorite comfort foods. Our casual bar area is the perfect place for a glass of wine from our extensive wine list, or a round of beers with friends.

Outstanding food at reasonable prices! Fabulous service.....Jason was very attentive and gave terrific recommendations....the apple strudel was life changing, as he said it would be! The ambiance is also nice. Would definitely go again and would be a "regular" if we lived closer!

Brix menu is easily read, specials are always great. Been going there since it opened, never felt neglected or needing staff to check on us. Love their scallops and fish special is always great. The bartenders are friendly and busy, but get it done. Wait staff professional! I have vegan family members and they always make a beautiful plate for them.

Lovely outdoor patio. The scallop and risotto dish that I had was outstanding. My companions also enjoyed their dinners which were salmon and butternut squash ravioli. Excellent martini and a very nice wine list.

First time dining at Brx based on prior reviews. We concluded that you need to be part of the "in crowd" to get service and food that lives up to a 5 star rating. From the start the maitre'd / waiter tried to seat our party of 4 next to a very large and noisy party. When asked for another table in the nearly empty dining room, he grudgingly sat us in a corner next to what was to become another very large and noisy party. Perhaps sensing that we were less than pleased, his subsequent unctuous only served to further annoy us.

The food had the potential to be good. Given this restaurant's price point, it should at least have been served hot but was not.

The dining room and outdoor areas never filled by the time we left at 8:30. It left us wondering why we could not be seated outdoors as we requested.

Finally, the noise. Lively is not the word. I measured the average noise level at just under 80 decibels, with a peak of 105db in a dining room that was not even full.

We have been coming to Brix for years and are never disappointed. The swordfish we had last evening was amazing. The food has always been delicious and the selection of wines is excellent.

Had a wonderful experience at this establishment from start to finish. When the waiter heard we were new to the area, he comped us a couple of glasses of champagne as well. Sometimes it’s the little things. Will definitely be returning soon!

We have been going to Brx for years, but usually sat in the bar area. I had a nice, quiet dinner planned with a friend and we sat outdoors this time. So beautiful and serene. We shared the paella and it was fabulous (needed a little more risotto, but the seafood was fresh and sauce was delicious). I had a drink called a "Serbian Wedding" and it was just what I needed - something fruity with a kick. Outstanding dinner!

Knowledgeable waiters and sommeliers. Excellent chef. Tables not on top of each other. Restaurant well run, thanks to presence of owner.

We were very pleased with the presentation of our food as well as the quality.

Only wish room was quieter, but design is at fault..too much stone...outdoor dining area very nice.

This was our first time dining at BRX and we will go back. Everything we ordered came out hot and tasted fresh. And our waiter, Jason, was helpful and efficient. The presentation was appealing to the eyes and didn’t disappoint when tasted. We had the Halibut special which was perfectly cooked with a mushroom risotto and a beurre blanc sauce surrounding the fish. It allowed the diner to choose how much sauce to eat. Desserts were absolutely delicious and tasted fresh. The wine, an Albariño, was nice and cold when served. Highly recommend this restaurant. Only 15 minutes from Ashburn.
