“Great Food at Fair Price”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

The Brickhouse offers GREAT food at a fair price. The restaurant itself is somewhere in between a local pub and an Italian restaurant. The service is friendly and quick. On occasion, the small restaurant can be very busy. Definitely worth the trip because the food is excellent.

“At the risk of not being able to get a table….”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

I don't want to write this review because I won't ever get a table!!! This place is amazing. But crowded. Fortunately, they take reservations but sometimes they're hard to get. Anyway, the food is wonderful and the portions are huge (you get dinner then 2 lunches out of the same plate!). The service is friendly. The chefs are accommodating, for example if you want potatoes instead of rice or you want double vegetables, never a problem. Whether you're on a date or it's "date night" with spouse, or you're with family, this is a great choice. Prices are very fair and everything is very fresh, made from scratch.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Went for dinner here last night. I have been here before but it had been awhile and hadn't seen the expansion with the larger bar area. Although the restaurant is pretty loud it is well worth going to. The food is excellent. They have large portions. The mussels appetizer was so good in white wine and garlic. I also had a bruschetta martini which was delicious. Service was superb by our waitress. The owner is also a very nice guy and makes a point to stop by the table to say hello. We will definitely be back to brick house cafe a lot sooner than last time. I highly recommend it.

“Good food, not so good service”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

My Girlfriend and I stopped in for a midday breakfast. The place was about 3/4 full or so. It took a long time to get approached by a server, even to get a drink order. Then once we had drinks, it took a long time to get a food order in. The food came quickly, but after it did the server sorta disappeared, to the point I think one of the other servers noticed and refilled our drinks. By the time we were done, and waiting for the check, the server was at another table doing some sort of paperwork for 10-15 minutes, and never once looked up to check on her tables to see if they needed anything. It may have just been the one server (the others seemed responsive) but it seemed like our stay was quite a bit longer than it needed to be.

“neighborhood place with large portions”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

My first time dining in, have gotten take out before this. This place has an equal sized bar and dining area with little division between the two so it's very loud. There are small tables all along the edge of the bar as well and they serve food there too. The hostesses seemed really overwhelmed and the phone was ringing off the hook. We only had to wait about 15 minutes for a table which was good considering how busy it was. The service was ok. The food was very good, they have large portions and a big special menu.

I have had take out here before as well and would recommend their Brick House Pizza. They also had a special with 2 sides, ribs, chicken parm and steak tips for $21 which is a great deal.

PRO
Good food
Large portions
Easy to park

CON
Loud
Hectic
Eating at the bar is a tight squeeze
