Mimosas are great (and a great deal), but their food is super salty. We got multiple different meals (there were 6 of us) and each plate was heavily salted.

Went for Valentines Day. They had a prepared menu, which was a little on the pricey side. Wife got the Tenderloin and loved it. I got the Lobster with pasta. Pasta was ok, Could use some spice. Service was on point.

We're fans. The menu has some unique items so don't expect your regular steak, chicken, and fish menu. They've got great appetizers, excellent pizza, and a full bar so everyone should be able to find something they like. Enjoy!

First time eating at the Brick Wood Fired Bistro. Absolutely wonderful flavors. Fried brussels sprouts with prosciutto and lemon sage aioli was a great starter. Steak, grilled to perfection with oyster mushrooms and crispy leeks, baby red potatoes served with a demi glaze. The other dishes looked great too. Blair was able to make her own pizza. They brought the pizza dough to the table with toppings and she built it all by herself. Ernie had fire grilled chicken, very juicy and tender. George had the same thing I did, Angie had Crab and truffle fettuccine that looked awesome. Payton ordered their chicken wings. Even they looked extra tasty. All in all I give this place 5 BIG STARS. The service was awesome. Nolan did a fantastic job keeping up with all of us. We'll be back!

I enjoy dining (even carry out) at BRICK and as such wanted to take a friend for her birthday to BRICK since we rave out it constantly. It is an outing for us as it’s at least a 30 minute drive but it has always been worth it. Sadly today, was a lesser experience than we have had in the past. First, we opted for regular seating and were seated in the bar. Normally being seated in the bar is not an issue however about 15 minutes into our visit, the volume for what seemed like all of the TVs was turned up so loud that my friend and I had to shout at each other across our table for the rest of the dining experience. We did ask if they would consider turning the volume down just a little (to what it was when we arrived) but were told “IT’s football Sunday”, which clearly meant “no”.

The Korean wings which tasted fantastic - after I de-feathered two wings which had so many large, obvious feathers sticking out that I wondered if the chicken wasn’t killed fresh in the back. The cajun biscuits and gravy had great flavor but also had a great deal of honey making it incredibly sweet. I love sweet drinks and desserts but I had not expected that level of sweet in what should have been a savory dish, It was so sweet I couldn’t finish the remaining biscuit. The dessert was amazing - no issues there! Our service was okay and perhaps she was having a bad day or had too many tables. She also wore her mask under her nose which is ineffective and she constantly stopped at tables while holding another tables food. GROSS! I don't want my food being breathed over any more than necessary and certainly not by extra strangers.

Everyone has off days … we know how hard the servers work and we do appreciate them.
Overall this was a less than satisfying visit however given the other visits I have enjoyed I would and will return.

Took my team to an offsite lunch to talk about our 2021 business initiatives and improvement plans. Service was outstanding, food was great, and noise level was just right. Brick continues to impress and very highly recommend it for nearly any occasion.

I really liked this restaurant. It was clean and the food was good. My only complaint is at what point do you cut off alcoholic services to the guy that came in wasted, continued to drink, and successfully offended every table around him with his cursing?

The service was wonderful! Quick, attentive and food was served hot - although we would have preferred our entrees were ready/served together. The portions were very large, so be prepared, and recommend you ask if dishes are "shareable". Slightly pricier than the usual dinner fare in the area, but plenty of leftovers due to portion sizes, so we made 2 meals out of it! Would definitely return and try more menu samplings!

The bar area was packed, and I would question if they were in compliance with the 50% capacity in the bar area. When I was first seated it was not packed. If I had been seated with it packed I would have asked to of been moved. The food was good, not great, and not poor. The bread served with my pasta was ice cold. I normally love bread with pasta but this was not something I could eat. I might give them another try, but I am not frequently in that area.

We decided on Brick to celebrate our 25th anniversary and our meals were both delicious. I had the Cajun Seafood Pasta and my husband had Prosciutto wrapped Trout.
The best part of the meal was definitely dessert! We ordered the Beignets with Bourbon Caramel sauce and our server Nolan suggested we also have the Pumpkin Pecan Ice Cream with it. So delicious. They made our special occasion very memorable.

We loved our first experience at Brick. Our server, Nolan, made the entire dining experience enjoyable. Nolan gave great recommendations, did not rush us, and was attentive. The food was fresh, flavorful, and fun. There was something for everyone. We can’t wait to go back!

My only complaint is that the front of house staff sat us down, and left. Didn’t tell us who our waitress would be, or show us how to pull up the menu via our smartphone.

There were three of us. Smash burger, delicious. Harvest Salad with Steak, delicious.
Margarita pizza and side salad, pizza not good. It was cold and tasteless.

I was disappointed in the pizza, I got the salad and recommended the pizza to my friend. This was the first time there for them, he said the pizza was cold not really any cheese and basil and crust tasteless.

I will definitely be back that Harvest Salad was delicious and so was the burger.

The hostess seated us at the table which had a lot of dust all o Er the table and chairs. A lot of dust! I can not believe the hostess did not see all the dust. I used my napkin to wipe the table off and our chairs. When the waiter came to our table to get our drink order, I asked for another napkin and stated “ because our table and chairs had a lot of dust on them”. No response from the waiter, but he did bring a few disposable napkins to our table.
