This is a place to try. We went there for lunch to try the restaurant. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Walking in you see the fireplace/ fire pit, which looks great.

I reserved the "Man Cave" for 50 guests after a corporate event. The room was set, the buffet was supervised and the wait staff was friendly and attentive. Everyone enjoyed the lunch and I would definitely recommend the restaurant for a nice lunch. The staff couldn't have been better.

We were looking for a place to watch a specific college basketball game on an NFL playoff Saturday, and were afraid we'd have difficulty locating a spot. Brick House was perfect. The hostess seated us at a table with its own TV monitor and got the channel we needed right away. Many of the tables have individual TVs, and also... More

After a HS football game visited her for a late night beer. The service was fair. Prices were fair. They had a few TV's so was able to watch some sports.

Lots of space and good seating. Comfy lounge chairs with tvs for couples and small groups. Great bar menu, beer selection and the wings are awesome! Also love the house chips with melted cheese. Great for watching sports or getting together after work.
