The brunch at Brickside Grille used to be fantastic, I believe it’s gone downhill and is just mediocre at this point.

Double-date night with friends. A little out of the way, but great food and service. Can't wait to go in the Summer and check out the live music.

Sat down at 7:30pm and by 9pm it was starting to get pretty quiet and cleared out. Had live music in the bar which was nice. Older crowd for the most part.

It's a little shame that this restaurant is not better than it is. Great location and surrounding area. We have eaten here several times and almost always the same. The food is good but a long way from great. First, the menu selection is not that large; several selections are several categories, but most other places have lots more choices. Second, the portions are fair at best for the money paid. Our burger was below average size for an $11 menu item and my wife's salad was almost all kale and very little of the necessary tasty ingredients to make a good salad. Really don't understand this, beefing up the sizes and quantity of ingredients should peanuts in cost to the restaurant, but as is, leaves a non-desire for patrons to return. Third, the taste of the selections is just average or below as well. Definitely could use more seasoning.

Won't be back and I do not recommend this restaurant at all. I have not been to this restaurant for years and only came here because some friends really wanted to have oysters. The food, service and atmosphere were mediocre at best. I am so upset that we wasted good money to eat here and could have put our dollars elsewhere. I have no idea how this restaurant was so busy either.

My turkey sandwich was fairly good, sweet potato fries were delicious. My husband was disappointed with his chicken sandwich since the roll was very hard and the chicken was dry. Even though there weren't many people eating while we were there service was slow, yet the server/bar tender was extremely pleasant.

Overall, Brickside is a very good restaurant, however, on New Year's Eve, they were overwhelmed. The wait staff was inundated, and our waitress decided not to even venture towards our table. We almost walked out had it not been for the waiter, Dave. Thank you Dave for waiting on us and giving us exceptional service (we appreciated it).

Very disappointed in the quality of our Prime Rib dinners. We have been coming to Brickside for years, but this one may be our last.

Appetizers were good. Dessert good, but Prime Rib...tasted like Old Country Buffet.

Bad Bad.

Made a reservation through open table for Christmas Eve. Was not aware it was a buffet. The food was cold and there were not many selections to choose from, and frankly the food was not good. The mashed potatoes were cold and dry with no flavor, to name one example. The dessert was a chocolate fountain bar with pretzel sticks, donut holes, strawberries and rice krispy treats. I paid $28 a person for this dessert option?! The waitress only came to our table once for a drink order and my husband asked her to come back in a few minutes because he wasn't sure what he wanted to drink yet and she never came back. She only came back to our table when we had to tag-team her down. The atmosphere was so bright as if I was at a neighborhood diner but with elegant price tag to pay for dinner.

Brickside Grille is usually a great place for dinner or even lunch. It was disappointing for Christmas Eve. The food was not up to it's usual par. My husband commented he thought the chef must have had the night off. We have had dinner there many times and it is usually great. The buffet for Christmas Eve was disappointing and expensive.

When here to have a nice meal and listen to some live music. Started with the shellfish starters and some potato skins which were very good and two people had a pizza two of us had paella and someone had a sandwich. Everything was good. This restaurant is always a great option for live music. One of the few around that has that often

Waitress completely incorrectly described a dish, couldn’t handle a special request, forgot to bring back the doggie bag for half of a very expensive meal. She was extremely slow even after we said no to dessert it took a long time to get our check. Pork chops were very dry along with the rice. Burger was pretty small. We used to love this place but the last several times it has been disappointing.

The brunch buffet was not well maintained, most stations were empty and refills took a while. The smoked salmon was bad, fishy and not very smoked, very raw. The man making frittatas wasn’t wearing gloves of any kind. Extremely loud in the place had to yell to hear each other at a booth. Overall not a great brunch experience, many better places locally to go.

We have been here many times before and were attracted to what we perceived as a new menu at least to us. However, while the service was fantastic and the menu intriguing the food was rather pedestrian.

We will go back for the Sunday Brunch and the Roast Beef Nites. This wasn't the experience we were used to at the Brickside.

Decided on the Brickside Grille for a post Thanksgiving brunch with family. It was, ok. Brunch options were good, but you cold tell they were short staffed. Many of the items on the brunch were “empty plate”, needed to be refilled or wiped down. An example was the shrimp were no longer “on ice”, but in a pool of water. Yuck. It was ok, not the “wow” I anticipated.
