This place has great atmosphere and friendly staff. We went for happy hour and thought the prices were good as well as the bar selection and food. We went for lunch though and it was terrible. The lunch specials (and really everything at lunch) is extremely over priced and terribly bland. I had the chicken cobb salad which is supposed... More

Not good. Not bad. Just completely average. Slightly expensive for the quality and quantity. I wouldn't recommend.

This place is very beautiful. Very clean and well kept. I really liked the atmosphere. Came here for a business lunch and we were really the only people there. It took us a while to get our lunches but everyone enjoyed their meals. I had the harvest flatbread which came with goat cheese, bacon and apples. It was very good... More

This is a wonderful location in Bethesda. Great ambiance, the jazz music is a treat. Food and drinks are fantastic.

Nice atmosphere, great server, but the food needs attention. Visiting right around 10pm on a Sunday night does not exempt the cooking staff from presenting quality of food. The menu was limited enough that the food should not have been overcooked, or burnt. It was wings and chicken fingers for goodness sake. Do you know how much it takes to... More

We had very good burgers here, different toppings were good as were fries. Looks like a decent sports bar. Clean and very good service.

Stopped in for a late Sunday lunch. We had a seat at the roll up garage door style front window. It's a nice location, elevated above street level with pretty much the whole wall open to the outside when the weather is nice. My wife and I had wings to start and neither one of us really cared for them.... More

If I had read the review for Brickside before I went, I probably never would have gone! But when our go-to sports bar on the "new" side of Bethesda suddenly closed, we were looking for a new place. We are lucky we found Brickside and we think we have eaten there at least 4 times in the last 2 weeks,... More

I liked the location of Brickside, if i wanted to go somewhere just to get a drink and watch a sporting event I might go here. We chose to go for dinner and arrived around 8pm, we were informed the kitchen closed at 9. We put in our orders, which were easily the last ones put in but the food... More

Took a u16 boys soccer team and parents to the restaurant. (i only say that so you can imagine the amount of food ordered and consumed). Not the place for groups of over 10 - they really can't handle it based on the layout and should have said so when the parent in the group made the reservation. It is... More
