Our food is prepared from scratch in our chef run kitchen which offers our guests an unparalleled freshness and variety of flavors.

In addition to our seasonally changing menu, we feature daily specials taking full advantage of seasonal ingredients. All menus are available for carry out. The Brickside Grille also has a large banquet room that can accommodate up to 70 guests. Weather permitting, we also have outdoor seating in the heart of our groomed Japanese Garden/Town Center, landscaped with manicured trees, brilliant seasonal flowers &a
My wife and I went to Brickside for our anniversary Feb. 18th. We have also been there in the last two years with three large groups to celebrate wedding anniversaries and birthdays. We were extremely pleased during our recent visit. Our waitress was prompt and pleasant. The food was awesome as usual. I would have to say that the experience by the gentleman who gave a rating of two stars was a fluke, it is not consistent with our experience. One should never rate a restaurant on one experience. Also some of these reviews are five years old and restaurants change over time. Bottom line: great food, good service. Dining room just a bit noisy, but so what, overall very pleasant.
Brickside Grille likely is a decent after-work restaurant for a sandwich or munchies and a cold brew. It might be a good place, too, to catch light dinner and a ball game on television. But though management hopes you would, don't expect a gourmet experience for an evening meal.
Our party of three adults dined there in mid-August 2008 and left feeling full but disappointed. The 12-ounce prime rib, requested as medium, was served undercooked. A 12-ounce New York strip steak, also requested medium, was served overcooked and somewhat dry. To the kitchen's credit, the crabmeat-stuffed shrimp were fine.
House sides appealed far more than the entrees. Potatoes whipped with horseradish were tangy and sweet, and without a harsh bite. A medley of grilled vegetables, mostly green and yellow squash, was crisp and tasty. Fresh-baked bread seemed to come directly from the oven, sufficiently soft inside with a crust of just-right chewiness.
Some reviewers of Brickside have raved about its light fare items. Indeed, its menu abounds with burgers and other treats intended to satisfy patrons who arrive at noon and after 5 from dozens of surrounding office buildings. Those offerings are moderately priced, usually for between $7 and $10, and seem to represent a value.
That's not the case, sadly, for the dinner presentation. Entrees generally cost between $20 and $29 (there's a portobello salad for $17, however), and at those prices diners should expect food of higher quality.
Waitstaff was attentive. Parking is plentiful.
You won't go wrong at this family-friendly eatery. Try anything on the menu...it's all perfect. A courteous staff, good prices, diverse & a constantly changing menu make The Brickside a favourite for my family and visiting friends.
I think the Brickside Grille is teriffic! The menu changes monthly and the Executive Chef, Rob Strunk, has some great ones everyone should try! I have been to the Sunday Breakfast Buffet and it offers a million things to choose from on the many tables of food and even offers a 'live' person cutting the meats for you. Anothr impressive part is the Pizza brick oven placed where all can see the action, and the fresh, tastey Raw Bar with everything imaginable. Kids love the huge fish tanks filled with beautiful fish they can watch while food is served. The bar is there, too, for convenience and the live music is a great people pleaser. I am amazed at how many people love to eat outside in warm weather overlooking the fountains. Seems the owners plan a lot of extra stuff for holidays, etc. too. I think it has something for everyone (even a clown for kids) and is located in the pretty square with a pond, fountains, and gazebo. Hurray! At last a restaurant everyone can enjoy!!
I love this place. I have never had a bad meal here. The atmosphere is relaxing and classy without feeling too fancy. My only complaint is that they often run out of their prime rib and I think it is the best thing on their menu.
Not overwhelmingly grand but certainly not a run of the mill establishment. Never had a bad meal there but I guess if you go there too much there aren't any surprises. Of course surprises can be bad as well as good.
