After a Tuesday that felt like it could have lasted an entire week, Andrew and I treated ourselves to dinner and drinks at a new place in town called Brick House Tavern and Tap. Although this restaurant is geared toward men, I enjoyed it just as much as Andrew did.

The food and drink selection was great. We started with an app of soft pretzels. Omg. I should have just gotten these as my meal! With two different types of mustard for dipping choices, I was in heaven. I know my friend Emily would have enjoyed the Meatloaf Sliders, and I will have to try those the next time they come to visit!

For the main meal, Andrew got the Big Boy Prime Rib Sandwich and I got the Yard Bird Chicken Sandwich with garlic parm tots. Believe me, this restaurant was a winner from the moment I read tots. Shouldn't all restaurants serve tots?

Although I expected more beers on the menu, I can't say that I was disappointed. I had a few Blue Moon beers in the "Man Size" - 20 oz. Although the waitress keep trying to tempt us with a "Beer Bong" - more commonly know as a beer tower - there was no way I could help finish one of those on a weeknight.

Other highlights included: mini fact cards with the waitress name, picture and fun facts on it (good idea!) and a check that came out in a Little Black Book!

The only downfall I can think of was the waitresses outfits. They were beyond tacky! I understand who their target audience is, but come on! It was worse than Hooters.

After we left, Andrew and I decided that this was a new favorite of ours and we give it a solid 9.5 out of 10. Have you been to this place before? What did you think?

  1. Went there twice in one week. Love it. Justin Sullivan even nicknamed our waitress Shortstack. Let's just say the outfit was less than flattering on her...
