Voted “Best Pizza in the Desert” 4 years running,
What makes a great pizza? It starts with a great oven! Ours is an authentic wood- fired masonry oven where the fire has burned constantly since the day we opened. Modern gas and electric ovens cannot produce the intense heat needed - over 700 degrees - to achieve the crispy, smoky crust that our oven provides. With dough made fresh daily in-house, our goal is to make the best pizza in the desert!
In the mood for something a little fancier? Our famous sliders, pan-seared atlantic salmon, 16 oz grilled Rib Eye steak or brickworks fish + chips? Our chef's dishes are simply and classically prepared! You’ll find our appetizers and entrees well seasoned & hearty, never bland. The challenge? Build an interesting restaurant in an expansive second floor space that includes outdoor seating in historic Downtown Palm Springs! The brickworks experience takes place in an engaging atmosphere designed & custom-built.

This was our second visit to the Brickworks and we enjoyed both evenings (each time there were 4 of us). My wife mentioned to the host both times what a wonderful place you run and that we would be back and we surely will. We have spread the word to our friends and family and we feel very comfortable there.
Thanks again for your hospitality.

Some of the best wood fired pizza in town. Actually, only one of a couple that offers it. Great wine and beer list. Great location right in the heart of downtown. Service is always friendly, good food and nice selection on the menu to satisfy groups.

The Bloody Mary Burger is amazing. So good we went back the next night to have it again. The place is fun and casual and a very interesting space. Shawn served us the second night. He was fun and it’s nice when you meet someone who you can tell enjoys their job. We will definitely return.

Food was great and service started out great. Tables were really close together not allowing much room. Both my table and my neighbors waited 30 minutes for our checks. When the waiter returned he blamed the servers. Love to return when it’s not so busy.

We decided to have dinner after cocktails and were concerned about finding a table for 7 people last minute on the day before New Year’s Eve . Brickworks was able to accommodate us. Food was great and service was also very good.

We had 2 great family dinners at this place while in Palm Springs. Their pizzas are really delicious, thin crust and delicious toppings. Very good salads as well.

Can be described as good pub food. Hot served well and plenty of it. Room was a bit cold as windows were opened onto balconies apart from that we will visit again.

The salads portions were large and the dessert was good. We liked the draft beer selection but were disappointed with the fire and smoke pizza, which had a nice crust but was mushy on the inside.

We were at the previous restaurant, Matchbox, a number of times. Some things seemed to have slipped. The service was somewhat chaotic-not really sure who our server was. The quality of the pizza, while still good, has slipped. The pepperoni pizza, while still good, is no longer outstanding. The sliders were excellent. Salad was ok, but one person in our group did not get her salad until the main courses had come out. One beverage did not come out until we asked for it several times. They brought out two of the same pizzas, even though we only ordered one. We were not charged for the extra one or for the beverage.

I will give it another try to see if this was just a not very good experience.

Wanted to still love it, but sadly the pizza has changed from Matchbox. The crust is completely different, and not as good. Service was good but very slow. The ambiance is still very nice and I love the outside fire tables. Just wish the pizza was the same, as I had read it was!
