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.

The burger that was highly recommended was so dry it got stuck on my throat. Could not get the attention of the waitress to order something different. She apprared only to give us the check. I wad so frustrated at that point I just wanted to leave
