“Nice Atmosphere, Not Sure About the Food”
Review of The Brickhouse Pub & Grille - CLOSED

Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We popped in for a late afternoon brew and appy. Our server was great, bringing us a taste of something on tap so we could decide. She was very attentive and did everything one would expect. It also appeared she was responsible for a lot of things, from starting a new keg, to training some newbies. All in all, she did well tending her customers and doing all the other things.

We ordered the Nachos Grande. It was a mistake. I can only slam this dish, as we didn't order anything else. It was simpy awful--from a non-apppetizing appearance to a lousy flavor. The cheese sauce neither tasted cheesy or looked remotely like cheese. There was no spice or kick to the dish. The optional guacamole was bland and tasteless. Simply said, we've never had worse nachos.

It did appear to be moderately popular--the place was getting more and more crowded as the evening went on. Our hope is that we chose the one "loser" item on the menu. I doubt we'll try again, as this was a day trip for us.

The ambiance was nice, and the outdoor patio was nicely shady for late afternoon. We opted for inside, being very sensitive to the humidity.

We were here on a Saturday for Lunch and had a great experience. We all ordered a Bloody Mary before our meals, and I would drive all the way back to Red Wing just for that (4 hours). Their menu had a variety of traditional and unique items. I always like to try something new and interesting, and I was not disappointed. All of our food was great, and to top it off we had a very fun waitress. It was overall a fun, refreshing way to start our day.

I've met friends here a number of times for lunch. The food has always been consistent and the variety is good for different tastes and likes. Would definitely tell friends and family to stop on Main Street and have a meal at the Brickhouse!

We had some wonderful burgers and the sweet potato puffs and the dipping sauce were very tasty. We would come back again

We were disappointed that our first two choices were already unavailable and the evening was still young. How can you be out of walleye and pesto? It was also very noisy.
