4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Love the fish taco's, have had them at other restaurants but they are much better here and the wild rice salad is awesome too.

“Chain feel. Food fatty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

I know it is a chain, but did not expect the chain feel at this location. The food was not horrible, but not the best for the health conscious. The fish was dripping in oil and the cobb salad had barely any lettuce, but lots of bacon. For the price we wish we'd gone to Flemings instead.

“Very nice surprise at this relatively new eatery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

We decided last minute to try Bricktop's. We had only eaten at one of their restaurants once before. It was in Naples FL and had been a pleasant experience. Bricktop's Frontenac was a very nice surprise. We were told 45 minutes to get a table and almost left. If it took that long I would be surprised as the time passed quickly. An new jukebox with old tunes in the bar was a pleasant surprise. The bar staff was very friendly and accomodating. I know it sounds crazy but try the deviled eggs and sugared bacon appetizer. It is wonderful. Price points on bottles of wine are very reasonable. They have a wide array of selections on their menu and all four of us were very pleased. Our waitress was a very charming 21 year old that made our evening charming. Oh, and the Cinderella mashed potatos are to die for.

“Overrated ... Give it time to fail.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

While the restaurant has potential, the service is, to be generous, the caliber of a fast food restaurant. They appear to hire anyone regardless of experience and then cut them loose without training. Crazy for a restaurant with this price point and in it's neighborhood. Food, wine, ambiance, all suffer as a result.
