Had the chili and the Bone in Rib steak. Both were really good. Been there 2 times and service is on the slow side.

Th restaurant is way overpriced. Menu limited as far as entrees go. the place was empty on a Saturday at 5:30 which I find odd. to be honest I would go to Miller Ale House before returning to you. Very disappointed

Met a colleague for lunch and we were impressed by how many things on the menu looked great. We were happy with what we ordered!

Excellent food and service! We were there early un the evening, before a concert at The Keswick, so not very crowded or noisy.

They only had 2 waitresses working. This place was suggested to us by a potential client, who became upset when after being there for an hour, our food had not been served. He spoke to the Manager, and he told him it wasn't the waitress' fault - there were not enough servers and she was running all over.

Food was surprisingly good. We were surprised because service was either slow or rushed throughout our time we were there. We noticed that others seemed to be rushed through dinner as well even though it was not busy. We could have stayed longer and maybe had another drink, but it didn't feel as though we had an option to stay. We may try again, but may not.

We love going to Brick House. The vegetarian Beyond Burger is the real draw here - just like a beef burger, but no beef! Fantastic taste and good for you too. The service is always friendly and efficient, too. We'll come back whenever we are in the area.

The menu that they had online was not the same as the menu at the restaurant. We went there specifically looking for a steak/fillet mignon but all they had was ribeye and top sirloin. The waitress gave no explanation other than it was corporate’s decision.

The place was really nice. Loved the atmosphere, but the food was mediocre at best. Felt like mine was heated up. Same for the rest of the table. They couldn't have cooked the food that fast. we thought it was microwaved.

This was good pub fare. Louder sports bar. Lively atmosphere. Good for beer and bar food with friends. Seemed to be popular with locals and the place was pretty full. TVs for those who don’t want to miss their fav sports.

Family friendly sports bar. Loud & busy on a Sat night. Food was fine, but not "fancy". Good portion size. Waitress was diligent and enthusiastic and likable, but didn't know the menu as well as she could have. But after the kitchen messed up dessert, she comp't us & was far more apologetic than she needed to be. We tried to reassure her & tipped her well. Good place for a party. Sort of an Applebees or TGIF on steroids.

Good spot for lunch. Bright, friendly, clean and comfortable. We had the burgers, which were nicely presented but just OK, a little overcooked and a bit dry. Great fries.

I knew it was going to be a questionable night out when the menu pages where stuck together. I ordered the bacon Mac and cheese and literally had no cheese. My dinner was cold and the waiter seemed overwhelmed.

I took my daughter and her roomates to dinner. Most of the food was amazing except for the steak. It was over cooked and we asked for rice instead of potatoes and they had no favor what so ever. The avocado toast was fantastic and the ribs were cooked to perfection. We spoke to the server about the steak she pretty much dismissed it which was unfortunate being it was the first time that we had eaten there. Though everything else was very good that interaction is was stays in my mind the most.

The overall experience was great. The menu was interesting and we tried some different things and liked them all. The only glitch was the mac and cheese burger came out looking nothing like the picture. There was very little mac and cheese but it tasted good. Our server was excellent and we didnot even tell her about the burger.

The restaurant was understaffed and said they weren’t expecting the guests they had (approximately 10 tables of patrons). Despite our reservations we were not seated and left after 45 minutes, as did all the other people waiting.

This was our second time at Brick House. Our waitress was great (I think her name was Nina) and we both had "Beyond Burgers," which were quite a revelation! We visit that area occasionally, and stay nearby, so this is quite convenient for us. Anyway, great food, great service, if you're in the area this is a no-brainer.

Is too much to ask for a napkin and silverware? Oh, I’m sorry, are we bothering you? Our server was checked out, disinterested and obviously couldn’t be bothered. And how do you run out of decaf at 11:30am? Overall dining experience for brunch...horrible. Food, nothing special. Would I go back! No.

Service was slow and the waiter was rude!

My wife and I sat at the table ten minutes before anyone even came by. Water was quickly dropped off and a “I’ll be back” was muttered by the waiter. He never even stopped moving.

After waiting another 15 minutes the waiter came back and asked for our drink order. As we had already been there a while we asked if we could also place a food order.

His response was to make a sour face, a dramatic exhale and dramatically say “sure why not”

We walked out.

Our waiter was busy but he did check back with us a few times. I don't know how things work there but the food runner was horrible - don't know if it was the waiter or truly the runner. When the runner brought out our appetizer, I told her my plate was dirty and to bring a new one. She never did. She was supposed to bring out my side salad with my entree - I never got it so I had to confirm that my $4 charge would be removed - it was. When I asked the food runner to bring a some honey mustard dressing, she said that she'd tell our waiter. What does that have to do with him???!!! She never did tell the waiter as when he came by, I asked him. The fried calamari was very good!!!! Our burgers were medium rare - good on the inside but overcooked on the outside.

Normally I would give more stars, but they’re apparently in a changeover of ownership and there were multiple items they did not have in stock and there seemed to be a disconnnect between the staff. The servers definitely tried the best with what they had, but it was a memorable night for not great reasons. As I mentioned they were out of several items (food and drink), we had to ask for utensils, one of the glasses wasn’t properly washed and one in our party found out they didn’t have the steak for her steak salad as we were all being served. You can’t tell me they didn’t know that MUCH earlier than then. We’ve been to the Brick House numerous times and this has never been our experience. We will go back at some point in the future, once they’ve fully changed over to new management.
