It is best for an intimate repast with a friend or friends. Not too often are you plagued by self-actualized, yuppie rug-rats and usually a quiet, sophisticated, adult atmosphere reigns.

We had a graduation celebration for 34 people. We were seated on the patio which was very quiet and intimate for our group. They have heaters that keep you toasty warm and great decorative lighting that gives it ambiance. We had a buffet dinner and everyone had plenty to eat and several went back for seconds and there was still... More

We have eaten at the Brickyard several times when we have been in the area for the Glasgow Highland Games and have always enjoyed it. The food is excellent, good selection, and service was top notch. Prices were very reasonable also. It was definitely a dining experience rather than just a place to eat. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

My husband has eaten numerous times at this restaurant on business and our son wanted to try it so we decided to meet there for a meal. After what we heard it was a disappointment. First of all they have allowed the outside to become run down...weeds along the front etc. It was raining the day we went in and... More

I love this restaurant the staff is very friendly and well trained. The food seems very fresh and well prepared. The portions are large and very well presented. They have a full bar which was nice and a Moscatto to die for. I suggest everyone try something once and make your own opinion as everyone has one.

For years The Brickyard was my absolute favorite for a nice dinner downtown. My past few visits have been so disappointing. We were just in Saturday night and my dinner was served cold. Drinks were good and service okay although two of the guests at our table had their dinners mixed up, one was vegetarian and the other meat lovers.... More

The Brickyard is located in the historic downtown area of Bowling Green but is easy to find and has its own parking area. It is a large facility so privacy is available for meals with business partners or with a friend. I have eaten at the Brickyard twice and have had excellent food on both visits. The staff is well...

We arrived early on a Tuesday evening on the recommendation of a local. The bread they brought to the table was some of the best I have ever been served at a restaurant and the beer my husband ordered was ice cold. We ordered the antipasto as an appetizer and we both thought it was outstanding, but I hate to... More

The Brickyard near the Square in Bowling Green has a range of eating options with a porch available in the warmer months. The food has a Meditarranean flare and the apetizers are very good. Ideal for pre-event stop or a relaxing evening with bottle of wine.

I have been to this restaurant on 4 different occasions for business meals. Twice the food was good, twice it was terrible. Service was extremely slow despite the restaurant being half empty (on a Friday night; not a good sign). Although Brickyard has had a great reputation in the past, it is in danger of losing its customer base with... More
