Reviewed July 5, 2012

Staff is friendly, food is not to be missed and the central location is great for getting anywhere in Sussex county.

“Totally Incompetent Management”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

On a Saturday night at 8:00 PM we walked into the main dining room where only one other table was occupied. We order a simple hamburger and the fish of the day. 90 minutes later the kitchen was still unable to produce our meals. The neighboring table was treated equally badly. Despite repeated assurances our apparently overwhelmed waitress admitted that the kitchen wasn't responding to her requests. We never did get our meals before we walked out. During the last half hour of this experience the Maitre d' was no where to be found.

thebrickhotelotc, Owner at The Brick Restaurant & Tavern, responded to this review, June 19, 2012
I believe I responded to this reviewer via email and expressed my dissatisfaction with the handling of his experience with us. You walked in without reservation and should have been politely turned away versus being seated. Despite the fact that only 2 tables were occupied in the front dining room where you were seated, we have 4 other dining areas, and there were over 150 guests in the restaurant elsewhere, all with reservation and, thus, priority attention. Staff was, unquestionably, diverted to those who had reservations/been seated prior to your party, including the host. This experience is one you should never have encountered, and as the owner, I totally agree it was unacceptable service.

“Truly, a gem”
Reviewed June 9, 2012 via mobile

Purchased a Groupon deal b/c the Hotel looked irresistible: good decision -- it is! We stayed there, & the room came w a $25 gift certificate for the restaurant, which we used & liked the restaurant so much we ate lunch there as well as dinner.

The hosts/owners & staff r attentive & helpful, even asking when we made the reservation if we needed anything or whether this was a special occasion; we did, it was, & they remembered both.

The rooms r beautiful; each is decorated differently & has a name. Very comfortable.

The Hotel offers a "wine pairing" gratis to its overnight guests. I don't know what they were going to serve, but accommodated our request for "no carbs," & served us delicious scallop & beef appetizers, paired w the wine.

The crabcakes I had were the BEST I've ever eaten -- so good that we stayed for lunch, so I cld have another.

Cld not recommend The Brick Hotel more highly; can't wait to return.
