The Brickhouse is outstanding. Excellent craft cocktails. I had the crab and shrimp salad as an entree and it was so fresh and delicious. My husband had the Cioppino on special. It was filled with seafood including a cracked crab on top. It was the best he has ever had. The baked bread is served warm and so good. We finished with a large portion of their hula pie and coffee.

The food selection and quality was very good. The service was excellent. The restaurant is small and was very full. The noise level was high when we arrived but decreased as the evening went on

Nice variety of menu.... but the new menu includes fries with your burger ( which I did not want/eat) whereas you used to be able to just build a burger (without fries) and then order something else as a side.

About the restaurant
Washington Dining & Cocktails combines traditional with swanky and rustic with industrial for a welcoming feel. We feature neighborhood cuisine in a traditional American style, as well as beer, wine and cocktails served in the bar. The Culinary Director, John Gurnee, has created a consistent and approachable menu with some fun twists, like daily specials, a raw seafood bar and salads you can build yourself with a variety of toppings. The kids' menu also gives families better options for healthy food and appealing choices for their children.

We pick restaurants for the quality of food and how loud they are. My Mom is 92 and has hearing aids. It is painful for her to be in very loud places. Washington is PERFECT. Great food. Excellent service. Manageable loud level. The potatoes are to die for.

This is me and my bestie’s go to place. Consistently good food and service. There is something for everyone’s palette on the menu. There’s a bar too where you can eat as well with big screen tvs for sports. Their fish and chips is a winner as well as the raspberry salad. They have a decent wine list too!

The Roam salad was very good and enough to share. My husband enjoyed the ginger pork bowl while I had the waygu bolognese - both very tasty. Big portions so you may want to share. If you sit around the corner and there’s a big group-you may want to ask to be seated elsewhere as it gets loud. Was hoping to be seated in the booths up front.
