    Brickside is one of our favorite places to dine; both indoors and out. From reception desk to delivery of check, it is a most enjoyable experience. Menu has something for everyone and everything we've tried has been delicious. The wait staff is attentive yet no one rushes you.

    We wanted to sit outside for lunch and they were very accommodating, combining tables on the patio for us. They gave us separate bills when asked. Checked on us frequently, brought refills for drinks in no time, and all the food was perfect!

    Hi- we have dined here many times, usually for special occasions. We have always enjoyed our experience. Always good food and always enjoyed the atmosphere. This time was our first BAD experience but it was awful from start to finish. We had 6:45 reservations, arrived about 6:35 and were asked if we eanted inside or outside seating, we requested outside and were seated within 10 minutes, that’s where the positive ends. We weren’t given drink menus so when our server arrived she went to get them for us and didn’t return until 10 minutes later. We got our order placed in a decent amount of time. About 20 minutes passed and she came to tell us “just an FYI our kitchen is very behind”! She asked “would you like some bread”? To which we replied “yes”. My husband’s shrimp cocktail arrived about 30 minutes later. She never came back to offer apologies or update us on the kitchen or bring us the bread she offered. Finally at 8:10 pm our prime rib was served-About 90 minutes after we were seated. He order medium rare and I ordered medium. His was medium and mine was well but the kicker was they were cold- the baked potatoes were so cold the butter didn’t even melt. The server never once returned to ask how it was (guess she already knew). Finally she came by with boxes and tried to give us our check but we wanted coffee and dessert to relax a bit before heading home but we had to ask her for it. Overall a bad experience and it was $130 for two people. Not sure we will be returning anytime soon!

    I’ve enjoyed Brickside Grill in the past with my husband so we decided to bring the whole family there for Father’s Day. What a horrible experience. My husband’s lobster bisque was awful, thin with only a few thin bits of lobster. Then we waited two hours and still didn’t get our main courses despite the fact that others who came in later were being served. The manager was apologetic but offered no explanation or compensation. We left and we won’t be back.

    The Father’s Day buffet was good but we had to wait for the popular items to be refilled. Service was poor which I can’t understand because it was a buffet. We didn’t get sugar with the coffee and the server bolted after dropping it off. We had to scavenger around and found sugar at another table that had not been cleared (which wasn’t cleared when we left) We weren’t able to get a second cup of coffee until after we had finished. When the server finally brought it, she didn’t ask my husband if he wanted some and then disappeared again.

    We had reservations for the Father's Day Buffet. The initial reason I booked was the ability to get reservations. I was tired of waiting 45 minutes and no one else had reservations. The buffet was excellent. Quite a variety of the usual breakfast meats, eggs, and waffles. There was also multiple luncheon options: smoked salmon, deviled clams, mussels, ham, beef, and several salads. Then there were pastries, cinnamon buns, puddings, etc. If someone wanted a drink, different types of mimosas, bloody Marys, sangrias. On and on. We had several males( naturally) in our group, and they refilled their plates at least twice. Very nice server. We were in the back room which was less noisy. I would definitely go again.

    The menu changed from my previous visit and my heart was set on the salmon dish and a chocolate martini. Well they didn’t have the salmon and they did t have the chocolate martini. The two things I went for. This was my birthday dinner out and I was very disappointed.

    They do not make any of their own food, except pizza dough. Everything was either frozen or pre-cooked. Even the hamburger was not that great. Very disappointed. Pick somewhere else. You can do better.

    Service was sub-par. I know restaurants are struggling but the apathy expressed by our waiter and the food runner was aggravating. After our appetizers took almost 30 min to come out, we decided not to order our adult entrees and only order the kids' meals.

    The oysters are always perfect. The crab stuffed shrimp was a poor execution on a seafood staple. Dry and the actual blend was on par with something a diner would serve. Still, the oysters were really good.

    Mojito and margarita were bad drinks. Didn’t taste good, they were served in large water glasses, all wrong. Wine was also not particularly good. Roasted pear salad was okay, nothing special. Tons of mixed greens but not much else in it. Piece of salmon on top was bland and overcooked. Fish for the fish & chips tasted like it had been frozen, it was bland and mealy. Not a great meal, not horrible, just also not good.

    Have gone to this restaurant multiple times before with no problems. Unfortunately my worst experience was tonight while introducing this place to my family for my birthday dinner. We waited almost an hour for food with the waiter not checking on us or letting us know that our food was on the way. My family got burgers/sandwiches and all of their fries were hard. I’ll still give this restaurant another chance but disappointed this happened for a special occasion.

    Sadly, we had a waiter who appeared to be quite stressed and dripping sweat. He was fairly attentive however, my husband did have to go get him and ask him to take our food order. We actually went on this particular night for 'buck a shuck' which the waiter appeared to have forgotten as he continued to reflect on the price on the menu versus the $1 deal. He seemed very hurried when speak with us and I felt I was bothering him to ask any additional questions. The good was fine although was hot but possible the plates from sitting in the warming window. I will go back but will not have the same server again. Honestly, we ordered take out last week with almost the same items and it was better than the in restaurant food we received yesterday. Go figure!

    We are returning customers and always had a great food experience. This time we were very disappointed. Our Margherita pizza was under cooked and soaked in oil. The crab cake was Luke warm and not cooked fully through. The sweet potato fries were cold and soggy.

    We had to sit inside because of the wait for tables outside. Inside seating is a bit dark and drab, but it's fine. The music was pretty loud from the overhead speakers. It made it difficult to hear others at our table at times. The food was fine. Three out of five members of our party had salads. They all came with the dressing already on the salads and it was overkill. We all ate only a portion of our salads due to too much dressing. The cocktails were tasty and the server was friendly. We will return because it is convenient- we will hope to be outside though. More specials for a variety of eaters would be great. Updating the menu would bring us back sooner.
