First ever visit to the pub for lunch with friends who recommended. Couldn't fault the place. Food was superb and a great choice. Eventually went for the fried shrimp ... absolutely yummy. Makes the size of shrimp (prawn) and quantity you'd get in the UK...More

Pub atmosphere with an extensive menu. We decided on a Mexican (chili nachos) and a Thai (lettuce wraps) choice and both were excellent choices. They also had an impressive choice of fine tequilas at the bar which is rare.

If you are Hungary and thirsty stop the Brick alley Pub. Great fish tacos, mozzarella tomatoes and Basel sandwich also very good. Great selection of beer. Wonderful selection of martinis. Ask for Paul a great waiter. A very Brice restaurant and bar.

We tried Brick Alley based on reviews we read. Guess it was just an off day. Our waiter was not the friendliest and I think I did not choose wisely. I got the fish and chips and it was just ok. Hubby got stuffed shrimp...More

Bad news is the place is popular and hard to get seated. The good news if you cop a seat the food and drink are very good. I'm picky about my tuna and my dinner was expertly prepared.

I do not think so. I suggest you call to check. Weekends are pretty crazy but if you are a couple or small party you can sit at the bar and order from the regular menu.
