Good food, friendly service

Visited with a big group and was impressed by the way the team handled multiple orders, kept a smile at all times and managed to get all the meals out quickly to the right people and almost all at the same time. Good sized, well presented mains. Sadly no room for dessert this time.

My husband and I popped in here for dinner one Friday night. It wasn't busy but we waited over an hour for our meals which were really unpleasant when they arrived. I'm not sure how you make a salad inedible but this place managed it. We caught a flight the next day and the meals we were served on the... More

Works meal out before Christmas for about 10 of us. None of us impressed with food. It was all very bland. I had the falafel main course which was so salty and charred I was thirsty all night afterwards. Wont be going back here to eat.

Possibly the worst eating experience I have had. We arrived around 8:30 on a Thursday evening and were told that they were no longer serving food other than from the Bar Snacks menu. It was getting late to go elsewhere so we ordered a mixed platter of fried spring rolls, samosas, chicken nuggets etc. We were told that there would... More

We went here the other evening. The food was bland and the meat was low quality. Having had robs in the US we tried these but it was tough not falling off the bone. The other dish was bland and undercooked. Very disappointed since it had a high rating on this site.

Really enjoyed coming in last night (Monday) for dinner. There were a few tables eating at the same time as us but we didn't have to wait long for food which was very good. The servers were exceptional - had to deal with their eftpos system being down, but did so very well and compensated us for our inconvenience. We... More

I have been to Brickworks many times because the staff are efficient and friendly and the food is tasty and well presented. The setting is pleasant and access easy for disabled people.

Called in at The Brickworks about 5 pm on a Wednesday for a quick drink. The three (then four) of us decided to stay for a meal – I had the Entertainbook App on my phone and thought this a good impromptu time to use it. The bar area was starting to 'busy up'. Despite there being an imitation fire... More
