Food is average and definitely not poor or bad. Our group had bang bang shrimp, steak & cheese sub, meat loaf sliders and beef with cheddar sliders. The place is comfortable and it appears the tavern aspect is their thing. Lots of good people sitting around with a drink talking. Bar area is large and there is a large comfortable outside sitting area. Everything we ate can be had elsewhere (Bonefish, Longhorn, Chili's, etc) at similar cost and a little better taste. I'll put Brickhouse in the "Bin there, Dun that" category. Would only go back if friends wanted to. BUT, I go for food, not drinks. My bet is you will agree with this review. It's worth a try but looks like most reviewers have it 3 stars.
