“Original”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Staff is always exceptional. Great original sandwiches and a long list of beers and hard drinks to choose from. They have movie nights, theme parties, and many local art shows throughout the year. The back patio area is super comfortable to hang out for a few drinks! So good!

“The Bricks...wow, where do I begin! :>)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

I loved this place! I would describe it as an eclectic, skate, vegan friendly, awesome microbrew, gourmet coffee/tea restaurant nightclub. Is such a thing possible? Well it is possible and this place does it exceedingly well! Ashley our waitress was also awesome! Thanks Bricks!

“Much more than it seems from the outside!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Siri (iPhone virtual assistant) found this place for us. We were staying downtown Tampa by the convention center and this is one of the places that was nearby for lunch. We went on a Wednesday afternoon. When we pulled into the parking lot kiddie-corner from the place it looked small and there was a vampire mannequin standing outside of it...in January? But we decided to try it anyway. When walking in we were pleasantly surprised to find a unique bar/pub atmosphere with a unique menu of sandwiches, wraps and drinks! I had the special, the Raging Bull-thin cut steak with jalapenos and swiss on a crusty hoagie and a strawberry alarm clock martini (at the suggestion of our waiter)...the sandwich was delicious and the drink rivals the best I've had in fancier places! Prices are great, food and drinks are fab and service was impeccable! GO HERE!!

“Nicest staff, cool atmosphere and kid friendly :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Went for NYE with our 4 year old. Great menu and awesome staff. The guy behind the counter kept seeing my daughter admiring his New Years party hat and was nice enough to let her have it. It made her night,. Food was delicious. We ordered the hummas wrap, the bbq pork quesadilla (AMAZING) and the ham and cheese on the kids menu. It was refreshing to see real food on a kids menu instead of blue box macaroni, hot dogs and chicken tenders. They also have the best spring greens! PS $26 for 3 awesome meals. cant beat it.
