“Good option in Salem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

Disclosure: I was born and raised in Salem. My brother and mother still live there so I return frequently. Finding a good restaurant without driving to Rolla has been a challenge over the years.
Brick House Grill fills the void. Four of us had dinner there on a Friday night in March.
Nice seat with a view of the highway.
A variety of food - steaks, pork chop, roast beef, meat loaf, and a couple of fish options.

We ordered a steak, a pork chop and two differernt fish choices. Two sides came with the meal.
I ordered a double cole slaw and found it quite good. Lite vinegar, not bitter with crisp cabbage.
Sweet potato fries were also a crowd pleaser.
No liquor license - would be a benefit, especially for the summer tourist crowd. Ice and soda choices for drinks.
Service was a little slow. Appeared that there was only one wait person for the entire restaurant.
Good food, good value. Hope it is successful.

“Just ordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

The best part about the food was the warm biscuit and flavored olive oil that preceded the meal. Everything else was just average -- not awful but not particularly flavorful. Prompt service but the restaurant was mostly empty.

“Excellent Lunch Specials”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011 via mobile

Very good roast beef and fried catfish sandwiches with fries. Tasty and served like an open face sandwich. Home made buns with excellent dipping sauce was a great appetizer.
