since we are at a time where people are encouraged to quarantine and not frequent social places there were not many of us in the restaurant. The hostess and wait person were fabulous. very pleasant and accommodating. The food was very good. one of our party had the flat bread pizza and we all had a piece and thought it was delicious. Will go back just to try that. One had the chicken, very good and I had the little necks which were also very good.

First time dining here and I truly loved everything about the experience from the ambiance to the food and service. The entire staff was friendly and attentive. My server, Brett, was fantastic. I started with the wine flights which, let me just say, I love this option because I got to try four different Newport vineyard wines which was right up my alley! I liked the four I tried but Rising Tide is my fave for white and Gemini Red is my red of choice. I’m vegetarian and the meat free options I tried were delish! I started with the Caesarish salad which was well portioned and satisfying. Then I had the small plate Ricotta Gnudi which was oh so delicious. Melt in your mouth and very flavorful I enjoyed every last bite of this. For dessert I had the mini cinnamon buns which were good but not great. I also had a dessert drink called Peanut Butter Cup which was screwball peanut butter whiskey and Godiva chocolate liqueur which tasted as good as it sounds. Great experience all around. I will definitely be back!

Been here several times now and still enjoy the Mussells! Still could use more bread with this meal. Otherwise, an excellent place for special occasions or any time.

Really disappointed. Have fined at Brix several times before. Food was very slow in coming and when it arrived two of the three meals were of poor quality.

The food seemed like it was left under a heat lamp for a half hour - which would explain the slow service.

The bun on the burger was burned black on both sides. And the cod was completely dried out.

Fish and Chips were passable.

Definitely can’t recommend Brix after this visit. And they weren’t even that busy.

We had a reservation for 4 people. We were seated right away. Two of us had a flight of wine which was great. Food was good. Cheese board was excellent. Pretzels and farmers vegetables were the great. Two people in our party had the scallops which were excellent but the dish is very small for the price point. We would return again but next time stick to the small plate and burgers.

I was expecting it to be crowded seeing it was Valentine's night. However, we walked in a few min before our reservation and was seated within a few minutes. We liked the the restaurant did not over book like most do. The cheese tray was tasty and the food was very good. We didnt feel rushed and was able to relax and enjoy our meal. Only issue was it was a little chilly.

It was a nice birthday evening at Brix. After a wine and cheese event at Newport Vineyards, I treated my wife to dinner at Brix. The meal was fantastic with little neck appetizers and a delicious flight of wines and cider.
Definitely an amazing place to go on Aquidneck island!

My husband and I had an early dinner on New Years Eve at Brix shortly after it opened at 5pm. My entree (duck breast) was excellent, but my husband's scallops were overdone and tough. This frequently happens when we come to Brix, one of us has a great meal, the other just so-so.

The waitress didn’t tell us about the specials and didn’t bring any of our meals, apps, or drinks. It wasn’t that busy- there were several empty tables. We ordered an app, the chicken sandwich and the burger. The bun on the burger was a bit mushy which was disappointing since I ordered my burger well done.

I really wanted to like it.. we were very excited to try the beer and burger Tuesday. The beer was great but the burgers were another story. I had the special burger of the night and my husband had the “brix burger “ they were both quite dry and tasteless. They needed more of something. Maybe the toppings or just more flavor. The burger tasted kind of like a plane meatloaf. I just wanted to like it but it was just barely ok.. so sad. Maybe we will try again with the wine and cheese board. Maybe..

This was my third time visiting Brix. I was a little disappointed after my second visit and again on my third. This visit we ordered the cheese board which was skimpy on the cheese and very cracker heavy. The honeycomb and jams were a nice addition but it still didn’t make the small amount of cheese last. My husband had a burger which was ok. Our waitress must have been new - she was very sweet but seemed unprepared for our questions and didn’t know that they offered crayons and coloring pages to the littles. My son figured out they did when he saw another patron bringing offered crayons and coloring pages. The atmosphere is wonderful at Brix.

We went for the barrel of laughs comedy show, I booked a 6:15 pm reservation for dinner. We ordered food right upon seating at 6:15 pm , Two salads, fried calamari to start and they had our order in for fish and chips, and the brick burger. Appetizers arrived at 6:30 pm and the burger and fish and chips arrived at 7:20 pm. The waitress blamed the slow service due to the comedy show ??? That's why we're there and I am sure most of the people eating. The Comedy show was sold out ,and by the time we got to our seats we were in the far back. I would suggest not eating before the show unless you have a few hours to spare. The show was excellent 👍They do need to improve on seats, they were very small to sit in for two hours. Again food was good,but service was terrible.
