I ordered what I usually order. I got the 2 jackfruit vegan crabcakes with fries & coleslaw. When the waitress delivered it, it was the barbeque jackfruit/vegan roast pork sandwhich which wasn't even close. It took 2 people to get my order straight. My friend had the crabcake sandwich with fries which she had eaten moist till I finally got my right order. It wasn't busy so the waitress must have been new. Never had this much confusion before.

I wasn’t impressed at all. Hostesses wearing yoga pants, waited 25 minutes to be seated even with a reservation & the food was below average. Had better chili out of a can & prime rib steak sandwich was messy, soggy with way to many cold onions & peppers & hardly any cheese. My wife & I were with another couple so I didn’t complain.

Had an truly enjoyable evening! Drinks were perfect, food exceptional and the service was on point. Interior was spruced up from former Viva, amazing how different floor coverings can warm up and make the restaurant more cozy and so much quieter. This is has definitely been added to my go to list of restaurants.

We had a great experience at Brickstone's. Our food was great as it has always been. Our service was good. Waiter failed to bring water we requested. It was brought by another person, I assume a supervisor.

Although the restaurant was extremely busy, the are where we were seated was fairly quiet, considering the nember of children seated near us.

We had a wonderful date.

The ambiance of the restaurant is very nice. Spacious seating and quiet environment is welcoming Waitress was attentive and food served promptly. The seafood crab diavlo could use some textural addition. Perhaps asparagus or broccoli. Something with a little crunch The Parmesan chicken could have a little more sauce But otherwise good. From a foodies point of view it would be nice to have something funky offered.

We were celebrating our anniversary. We ordered soup which was very good. I ordered steak and a crab cake. The steak was supposed to be cooked medium rare and came out well. The crab cake was not a cake at all but was crab crumbles. The waitress came back and took the steak to be replaced by the time it came back my husband was done with his meal and we were ready to go. I took it home to eat another day. Telling us they were sorry for the inconvenience just did not cut it for us! What a disappointing experience.

We are new to PA and the area, and we decided to try Brickstone’s for my birthday. Our sever Tiffany was excellent. She was friendly and proud that everything was made from scratch. Shortly after our food was delivered, another server delivered takeout containers to our table. We did think it was a little early - were they rushing us out? But we found out later it was an error, and it wasn’t a big deal. My husband’s red wine was served with a chill on it (evidently because of where it is stored), which he did not care for. Our food was very good - we HIGHLY recommend the lobster bisque. The lobster pieces are presented on top of the soup so there’s no doubt they’re in there. It was delicious. My husband’s steak sandwich was large enough to take half home. I had the fried haddock with string fries served with dill tartar sauce. It was very tasty. The cole slaw was also good. The meal ended with a birthday sundae. The atmosphere is very pretty with lots of space to walk to your table and the music plays at a pleasant level. We will try it again.
