About

The Brick House is an upscale restaurant located on a beautiful estate. Because it is located in a converted mansion, each dining room is intimate and cozy, reminiscent of eating in a friend's home. The first floor is open to the public, while the second floor is reserved for private events and parties. The Brick House is open for lunch and dinner service during the week, as well as brunch on the weekend.

The food at The Brick House is classic American with international influences. Appetizers include stuffed mushrooms, grilled shrimp, carpaccio of beef, escargot "vol au vent" and many more. The entree section is a solid mix of steak, poultry, pork and seafood. The most popular items that have made The Brick House so well known include the broiled lemon sole fillet, Brick House beef scallopini, Veal Lolli-Pop Rib Chop and New York strip au poivre.

I was a bit nervous looking at past reviews, but those people obviously had a rare problem. Everything was excellent. The restaurant is beautiful, staff are wonderful. Price are good, as the entrée includes a salad and either baked potato, sweet potato or rice. After dinner we were taken on a tour of the other rooms, great for small parties and a ballroom that holds over 250. They even have a cigar bar for the guys and I didn't smell it anywhere in the dining areas. We definitely plan to come back.

No matter how many times I visit, the food, the service and the overall experience is good. I prefer it as a "business dinner" location because of the consistency and reasonable prices.

The restaurant management was not clearly up to the challenge on New Years Eve. Our party of 4 had to wait a half hour for our drink order The entrees took an hour..The filet mignon was ordered medium-rare but was burnt to crisp and tasteless. The swordfish was over seasoned and drowned in garlic.
To make matters worse the waiter was argumentative and inattentive. Very disappointing.

If you want steak - this is the place. Cooked to perfection, melt in your mouth perfect.

If you want to dine kid free - this is the place. Been here many times; never saw or heard a baby crying. In fact cannot recall ever seeing kids.

My wife and I decided to go for a nice dinner with our daughter. When we arrived the dining room was empty except for one large table in front of the fireplace that had a family with several small children. We unfortunately were seated right next to this table. Now I know it is the parents responsibility to control the behavior of their children but we could have been seated further away from the chaos. The dining experience was very poor in the beginning but once that family left it changed dramatically. The food was excellent and our server was very attentive. I would look at this as an isolated incident and would be willing to try this restaurant again

I took my family to the Brick House for a holiday season meal and couldn't have been more disappointed. Huge portions do not make for a good dining experience when entrees are poorly prepared ... Salads were so overdressed we mistook them for soup ... A salmon dish which while generous in size, was absolutely soaked in butter to the point it reminded me of something one would be served in a dorm room cafeteria ... A bad enough meal to actually leave me a little angry. We will not return.

It has been some while since I have been to the Brick House, and it still is the same great quality restaurant as it ever was. Food was great and the service was outstanding. We were in the little dining room, so thwe noise level wasn't bad at all.
