We actually ate dinner here two nights in a row on 4/16 & 17. The first night we ordered pasta dished which were delicious. One had chicken wedges on penne, the other was linguine. The second night we ordered the linguine dish again and the salmon entree. Again, both were excellent. The waitress the first night brought the check before... More

Our group had a variety of dishes from the menu and specials list. All were fresh and flavorful and most had some touch of New Mexico heat. The premier dish, though was the green chile posole. We tried many around the state but this was unquestionably the best--and the hottest.

My husband and I ate dinner here two nights running on a recent trip to Carlsbad Caverns. While there are a fair number of chain restaurants in Carlsbad, we wanted something unique. Yellow Brix fit the bill perfectly. The building itself is charming, and if the weather is nice you can even sit out on the patio. The menu has... More

We travel and eat at restaurants extensively throughout this country and Europe. My wife and I spent several nights in Carlsbad and YellowBrix Restaurant was head and shoulders above the other restaurants we tried. They have a good wine list at reasonable prices. My wife ordered salmon with seasonable vegetables and I ordered a filet with vegetables. It was all... More

We stopped here for dinner one night upon arrival in Carlsbad. We weren't sure what to expect as the town isn't terribly upscale. It caters to tourists visiting the Caverns. We were pleasantly surprised. There is a nice children's menu that will please most kids. The adult menu was varied too. We 3 adults enjoyed our meals and would go... More

We tried Yellowbrix based on TripAdvisor reviews. Wife had the meatloaf w/mashed potatos and veggies, hers was very good. I had the Poached Pear Salad with chicken and it was OK. As for atmsphere, it's not a large place, and not built for a restaurant. Lots of hard edges. Wife liked it, I didn't care for it. Service was very... More

What a great restaurant with patio dinning. Historic building. Great staff very friendly. Wide variety or menu choices. Try one of their famous strawberry mimosas.
