Worth a try-- Don't miss the pot of chocolate

We stopped by here for lunch and are glad we did. First, the restaurant is quite quaint with exposed brick walls, one "bar" room with tables and one more proper table room.

This place is full of charm. It's very small, but that adds to the appeal. It has an English Pub feel to it and has a full bar. The food is delicious. Wonderful place for celebrations or to catch up with friends.

My brother's meal, Fish 'n' Chips was O.K. mostly 'chips' very little fish. My cousin and I ordered the Shepard's Pie which was a bowl of extremely salty mashed potatoes with some dried meat, and I think some vegetables underneath. I ate one forkful and quickly washed it down with a beer. My cousin tried to labor through his, but... More

My wife and I ate dinner here on April 15, 2015. The food was good, and our server, Sara H, was pleasant. It's right in Old Town. Interesting building.

Stayed in Petersburg overnight on our way from NY to Hilton Head. We prefer to dine at a "local" place rather that one of the chain restaurants so often near the hotels. The Brickhouse was lovely, from the cobblestone alley to the attentive waitstaff (I think his name was Terrell - great voice), Food was delicious - had a chance... More

From the website and tripadvisor, this restaurant gets rave reviews. I have to disagree. Being from England, I have experience Shepherds pie, fish & chips and bangers & mash. Between 4 of us, the above covers our orders. My Shepherds pie was the worst I have had while dining out. Mashed potatoes layered over the filling without any further grilling... More

The wait staff is friendly. The decor is like a colonial pub with 21 century items thrown in. Even though I have dined there several times, I have not been impressed with the food. There is a bar-appetizer section while you wait. Parking is across the alley way. The building was in the movie Lincoln.

As soon as I saw this restaurant's website, I put the address in my GPS. They have an excellent website, by the way - the history section is fascinating. My husband and I celebrated a birthday dinner here. Our waiter was very knowledgeable in helping us make our dinner and drink choices, and we were not disappointed. Excellent food prepared... More

Wife and I spent a late afternoon having lunch and then junking at some of the downtown stores in old town Petersburg yesterday. Had a great lunch at The Brickhouse Run. I had their oyster soup to start and it was one of the best bowls of soup I've had in long time. Oyster base with spinach and a ton... More

If you find yourself in Petersburg VA, this is a great option. Located in the historic district in a civil war era building it has a fun, vibrant atmosphere and very tasty food at reasonable prices. The menu is varied, with traditional pub fare including...Shepard's Pie, Bangers & Mash, Pub Burger as well as a variety of more traditional entrees...steak,... More
