We didn't go for food, just to hang out. We had drinks and had no problem. The atmosphere seemed decent.

Decided to try this place as we hadn't eaten here. Reading the reviews on Tripadvisor they were a mixed bag. The couple we were with had eaten here about a year ago and weren't too impressed but were willing to give it another try. We got there before 5:30 PM to beat the downtown crowd, well there were plenty of... More

First visit I made to Brick's we had good service, reasonably quick food that was good for all I was with, and the atmosphere was pleasant. Second visit the bar was busier (but not -that- busy), and they seemed incapable of handling well, anything. Everyone's food was undercooked, the noise from the TVs was overwhelming, the waitress was rarely found... More

Share a liquid treat while eating reasonable and good bar food. In the heart of the town, this is a good place to meet friends.

For $16 I got 2 glasses of wine and a burger with fries. It was Monday which I guess is 2 for 1 night so I lucked out!

Met friends for lunch, but it was really about the beer. The flights were a bit expensive, but there were several higher end beers on tap. Received very good service, but the place wasn't very busy.

Chose this place based on downtown location and that it was open on a Sunday evening, unlike most of the city (what's up with that, Cedar Rapids?). It was inviting enough and all the strings of lights were pretty neat although I think if you really wanted to watch the TVs they kind of get in the way a little.... More

First time going out in Cedar Rapids and this was my first stop. Went with some friends; had some great conversation, danced to some good tunes and tried some good beers. The environment was laid back and casual but a little more 'uppity' than a sports bar per say. The crowd wasn't overwhelming and the staff was very quick and... More

The food isn't dismal, just regular old pub grub, and they have a great selection of beers and spirits to accommodate anyone and everyone. The place has lost some of its pizazz after replacing the old crew, but it is still likely you will have a great time. they should include some better food options, but they don't need to.

I liked this place for the bar. not so much for the food. The restaurant bar is broken up into two floors. The food was very average.
