We were enticed to visit Brentwood by the early bird special which looked pretty good as well as the promise of $1 crab cakes at the bar. We had a great but quite expensive evening there. The crabcake appetizers in the bar were $1 each and were one mouthful each. They were served in a lovely creamy mustard sauce and were absolutely delicious. I could make a meal of half a dozen of them and a nice glass of wine. The price for the early bird special -$14.95 was very reasonable and included a nice salad, a good choice of main courses and a very uninspired dessert of the day. The two men had the prime rib and added some nice grilled shrimp for an additional $5. I had shrimp on angel hair pasta which was fine but nothing exceptional. The other diner had a very large crabcake of the same quality as the ones in the bar with a rice pilaf- a great choice especially when you consider the price.
We did enjoy quite a few glasses of their very good wines available by the glass which accounts for the bill. The wines at an average of $7.50 a glass add up pretty quickly even with the $1 discount per glass that is part of their early bird special.
The decor of the restaurant is warm and homey and the service was exceptionally good. All in all an excellent experience.
