Stopped in for the first time recently due to the close location to the hotel. They had some good craft beers and specifically a snowdrift vanilla porter. Also enjoyed an Alaskan Blackened Salmon and boy it was good.

The happy hour menu is very well priced (between $5 and $7). The menu offers good choices as well. You can't go wrong with the Philly Cheese Steak.

Brick House is an open industrial setting sports bar. Feels kinda cold and empty even with the nice fireplace in the middle. I can see this place getting very loud when packed with people. Signage saying Man Cave area for parties and Give that Man...More

Big open space, great for a casual drink and a quick snack. We tried the butcher's board and loved it. The fireplace is a good touch, specially in a cold winter day!

Here from Tennessee. First time here at the Brick House. Had the chicken pot pie. Was perfect! Other entrees was the chicken fried steak and the fish and chips. Those were great too! 5 stars!

The bar has limited recliner seating which is well worth the trip to this establishment. They put 4 recliners together to view one television which you get to control and watch whatever games you prefer. The food is very good and upper end bar food.

Excellent big breakfast meal. Homemade sausage patties lots of flavor, smoking thick-cut bacon that reminds you of camping, crunchy Sweet waffle. The bison burger was subpar. The sauce they put on there was sweetish and that complementary to a burger, unless you like sweet sauces...More

Quite noisy on a weeknight and service was a bit slow. Varied menu, but not much selection at all in the salad/healthy department. Would not recommend for a cosy evening with someone as there is significant crowd and TV noise. Food was ok and plentiful...More
