I highly recommend! This is a busy place so call ahead for seating if a large party. If not no worries it is worth the wait. The wait staff is very attentive to our needs and the food is phenomenal!

Hi Kathy, I see that you attempted to inquire if you could visit as a group. I wrote my review but you need to contact them direct to find out how many people they accommodate! Brick is beautiful!
