I had a business lunch here. I was surprised to see how large the restaurant was since I never heard of it. They have ample outdoor seating with socially distant tables. For lunch, I had the Crab Louie Salad which was an ample sized portion....They were not skimpy on the crabmeat in the salad.More

We were her on a Wednesday for lunch. It was buck a shuck day. I will be back for that. 3 out of r diners had the Lobster Roll that was served with fries and slaw. 1 diner had the pizza and salad special. My...Lobster Roll was amazing. The Cole Slaw was not outstanding with very little flavor. I wish some malt vinegar would have been offered with the fries. The Lobster Roll more than made up for the slaw and fries.More

Have been coming to Brickside since 2002ish….always a favorite. Recently was renovated but it’s not good looking! Cheap color blue paint and white trim does not match the ambience or name - looks like it is a place in OCNJ aim the 80s. Food quality...has gone down too - French Dip used to be on a high quality ciabatta, now on a plain brioche that you can find at Giant with mediocre fries. You can do better Brickside!More

The calamari was mixed in with fried cherry rings to give the appearance of more calamari than was there. Jambalaya was not good. $20 for a plop of uncle bens rice in the middle of 3 shrimp, super thinly sliced sausage, stewed tomatoes, onions and...celery. No thank you! If you want excellent jambalaya go to SAGE in Phoenixville. The prime rib sandwich came on a hamburger bun not a long roll and was about as thin as paper. They served it with hair in my side of horseradish and the waiter had to take it back to replace it. The sandwich and fries were $16. Certainly not worth the price for what you’re getting. Take some advice and go somewhere else.More

On a pleasantly warm afternoon, we dined outside. We both ordered the naked lobster roll (not lobster salad) which was just buttered lobster in a toasted roll with great fries and cole slaw. There were so many great sounding things in the menu, but when...we got to this last item under sandwiches, we both agreed we had to try it. Can’t wait to go back to try other item. Wait staff was extremely welcoming and efficient in these trying times of shortages.More

The bar service was extremely slow, The food literally took well over 30 minutes for a chicken salad club and a crab cake sandwich, Been coming here for years and with the added restaurants and new competition in the area you would think it would...get better instead of worse. The Chicken salad was like paste. All mayo and celery ground up and I could get better at subway which is scary, The Crab cake sandwich that a friend got was and I quote" The worst crab cake sandwich I have ever had" . Need less to say we wont be going back.More

Ordered a doordash order from them. They completely missed a main course from the order, on top of that the chocolate cake ordered for desert had hair in it. While on the topic of the chocolate cake this is in no way bigger enough for...two people, I've had bigger pieces in other restaurants meant for one person, it is grossly over priced.More

I was so excited to spend Valentine's with my husband; made the reservations almost two weeks prior yet when we arrived they seated us in the overflow area to the right of the lobby. It would have been ok EXCEPT that everytime a car started...up, we were blinded by the headlights. Not only that, the quality of the filet mignon I ordered was very poor; could have gotten a better burger at McDonalds! needless to say we will not be returningMore

When you walk in, the environment is very social and lively.... The service was good, but the food is average, not the wow factor. You can choose a shrimp cocktail at $3 per, borderline overcooked. The clam chowder was really good, the garden salad, I’ll...give it a c+..... The New York Strip Steak, garbage.....cooked much to fast, didn’t have the time to rest after cooking....the food was probably backing up in the kitchen and they rushed everything out.....but with all my reviews, my mission is to provide as much info to the customer.....good luck folks 😀More

We remember lobster rolls from New England from years ago. We came to get the trio of rolls, poached lobster, fried clams, and crab. The restaurant also had fried oyster and lobster poached in butter which we did not get. The lobster roll was tasteless...and I was so disappointed. The clam and crab rolls were much better.More

Enjoyed the pan seared salmon. It was tasty, cooked perfectly with a nice crispy skin. The butternut squash risotto unfortunately was rather bland and lukewarm. The same cool temperature could be said for the gumbo. The replacement serving was somewhat warmer but certainly not hot....We received attentive and personable service from Kelly, but overall were a bit disappointed with the meals.More
