We believe Maxwells is the best restaurant in the area. I had the blackened walleye which was delicious. Jen was a great server.

The food was really delicious as was the presentation. Service was excellent as well. The best thing was it was not loud, you could actually talk to the person you were dining with. We live in Austin and it is so difficult to find a restaurant where you can dine and visit with the people at your table. If I’m ever in Dickinson again I’ll for sure visit the Brickhouse.

The food was good, but the service was kinda slow considering it didn’t seem that busy. We weren’t checked on after our food was brought out until we were completely done eating. The wait staff was nice; we just didn’t see enough of them.
