Food was average and for the prices that is not a good thing. Our server was very hard to find at any time and acted as if she was bothered by us.

Brickyard Cafe has been in Bowling Green now for a long time and they never disappoint. The food is excellent and the service is great! I've eaten there mostly at lunch and it is easy to get in and have a great meal in under an hour, so check it out!

Brought myself and about 20 good friends here for my bday dinner and was really pleased. The food was really really good, but the menu was a bit limited, which was nothing too concerning. The prices were a bit on the high side, but nothing outrageous. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was great. My only knock was... More

The restaurant has a great atmosphere and when the veranda is open it is an excellent place to set and have a drink. The service is good and the food is great. The owner is very friendly and is often on site to interact with customers.

Brickyard offers a nice old building downtown on Chestnut St and features a variety of steak and pasta dishes. They usually execute their food pretty well but nothing is remarkable. A solid choice for a nice meal but does not really offer anything to set it apart.

My wife and I have eaten at the Brickyard Cafe on several previous visits to Bowling Green and we had a good experience. However, on our November 2015 trip to WKU's homecoming, the Brickyard didn't live up to our previous experiences. As usual, we made our reservation many weeks in advance of our visit. When we arrived, we were advised... More

Bread was good. Had a pizza and liked it. Salad could have been fresher. Very accommodating service and nice decor.

The food's not tasty, presented like a blue plate special place, gruff employees and owners, tables and chairs so jammed up together no room to move! Prices aren't compatible with the pedestrian offerings. Terrible wine list, but they will do corkage, but get haughty, and offended if you bring a wine you can drink. Small town place, yet parking is... More
