We went for lunch most recently. I had the white bean and ham soup, and it was delicious, full of beans and ham, and very smooth and flavorful. My husband had the burger, and it was cooked to his liking served with fries. I ordered the grown-up grilled cheese with bacon and a side salad. The salad was on the... More

I ordered the pan seared filet mignon tips and they were served cold and not pan seared. However the french fries were good, but the green fried tomatoes were over breaded and I believe they are actually a frozen item and not fresh. My wedge salad was the best wedge salad I have ever had. Because I was a guest... More

I am so sorry to hear that your visit with us was less than satisfactory, and simply wish you had chosen to make us aware of it while you were here. While we try to hit our mark 100% of the time, obviously we missed it with you. Given the opportunity, we work very hard to make sure our guests... More

quaint setting, decent menu and food. prices for food and drink are a bit steep.....however they do offer many "special". service is OK. ........BUT....... if you are expecting a welcoming environment, where the focus is on pleasing the guests, i would not recommend. my past 4 visits have found an attitude. more of "take it or leave it".

Given the incredible emphasis we put on customer service, this is very disappointing to read and,as you can see from most reviews, is uncommon. I truly would welcome more detail of your visits with us so that, as appropriate, I can address them with the member(s) of our team that you believe fell short in customer service. Please feel free... More

Sussex County Surf N Turf is one of my son-in-law's favorites -- so glad you enjoyed as well. We always appreciate hearing from our guests and, since it appears you are relatively local, we'll look forward to seeing you again soon!! Be sure to check out our nightly features -- everything from $10 Tuesdays to Friday's $19.99 Prime Rib which,... More

Ambiance fits with the rest of the hotel. Food was acceptable, perhaps was expecting a bit more quality. My chicken alfredo lacked depth of flavor that I was hoping for, but my partner enjoyed the pork loin with apple bacon compote. Nice selection of desserts and the two we tried were tasty.

The food served for the Sunday buffet had much to be desired. The eggs tasted of fish, the danish was dry, the fresh fruit was bland. When asked if their coffee was fresh, the server was rude. The french toast casserole and bacon were delicious and the decor was beautiful. We will NOT be returning for the breakfast.

I am sorry to learn of your dissatisfaction when you visited over 6 months ago, and that we were not made aware of it at the time; we certainly would have addressed your concerns and made effort to have you leave as a happy customer. We discontinued our Sunday Buffet last September, and are now open Mondays from 11-5 for... More

Food is on the medium to upper scale. Service and quality are consistent. A bank converted into hotel and restaurant. Located in the hub of Sussex County on the circle.

The Brick is a classic, warm and leisurely dining experience. Food is well prepared and the staff very accommodating. Have been there for lunch & dinner. Both were great.

We are so glad you have enjoyed your dining experiences with us. It's always nice to hear The Brick described as warm (both in terms of the ambiance and my staff) and leisurely, as my goal with the restoration of this 1836 National Historic Registry property was to provide our community and neighboring communities with a unique dining alternative for...

Decided to have a relaxing holiday lunch when out and about in Georgetown. The crab sandwich as well as the bisque is excellent, the service is great, and the atmosphere is wonderful. Add this one to your bucket list❤️

I was very dissatisfied with the High Tea offerings and won't be back for seconds. The tea was a pedestrian store bought assortment of tea bags that were left at the table with rapidly cooling pots of hot water. The first course of scones and other baked goods also tasted store bought - sweet and like they were being held... More

TheBrick, Owner at The Brick Restaurant & Tavern, responded to this review

You had every right to be disappointed if you were expecting a "High Tea", as The Brick has never purported to be a tea house. While our restaurant offers many unique opportunities, we are your typical restaurant that offers lunch & dinner. Our Afternoon Teas came about as the result of a request from some local ladies for an alternative... More
