“Spectacular dining experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

I had never heard of BrickTops until I was out of town in Franklin (Cool Springs, TN). We had a doctor appointment nearby and had to find somewhere really close. It was a great decision. This is an upscale casual dining experience with dishes that are to DIE FOR. Service was A+++. It started storming as we were leaving and a kind employee actual let us use his umbrella to get our vehicle and then even walked the rest of our party out in the pouring rain. If you live in or are near Cool Springs/Franklin TN in the future you must experience BrickTops!

“Bricktops is always a great choice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This was the first time we had ever eaten at this location. We always go to the west end location, which is amazing! We were in franklin, and we normally go to J Alexanders, but decided on Bricktops for lunch! It was great, as always, and the service was too! The sushi is great, the coleslaw and French fries are to die for1 The bloody marys are incredible! Although, it is costly, it is worth every dollar

“Great food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Joined family and friends for Sunday brunch. The restaurant is very cozy, but not crowded. We ate in the open air room where window coverings are retracted to let in the fresh air on pleasant days (recommended).

The fresh mini donuts are a great starter. The French toast is perfect and it's served with whipped butter and bananas that will remind you of bananas foster without the ice cream.

The staff in the front of the house were friendly and pleasant. Wait staff were quick and attentive at the beginning of the meal, but fell asleep after the food was delivered. It wasn't bad enough to spoil the entire experience, but it was an unnecessary distraction.

“Go To J. Alexander's Instead”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

My wife had visited this location once before - and normally - when we are in the Cool Springs area we prefer to go to J. Alexander's but thought we should try something different - so this time - we decided to go to Bricktop's on a Wednesday night.
We were seated immediately by the hostess - and she even noticed that the server was working another table - and offered to get us drinks while we waited for him to come up.
The menu at Bricktops is limited - and you would think it would be really good food - but we were EXTREMELY disappointed in the food and the service.
When the server arrived - we gave him a drink order along with an appetizer order- and our entree. It wasn't long that we had already gone through our drinks when our appetizer arrived (guacamole and chips- chips were stale). He went to the bar to get us another round - but we must have waited at least 10 minutes before he came back. It seemed he was all over the place except our table.
We got our next round and then our food came out - sea bass with crab cake salad. Let me just say - the baked potato was overcooked - the outside crust was as hard as a rock - which meant that the potato inside was bad as well. The piece of fish was tiny - and the crab and the salad dish my wife had was even worse.
A word of advice - RAISE the prices and give the patron a bit more to eat on their entree.

The server NEVER checked to see how the food was AND we could have had another round of drinks - all that would have helped this server with a tip.

When we left - we told the hostess she was great - but informed her we would never be back and that we would voice our concern on Trip Advisor so people know what they should look for. We did ask her if the server was new - and he was not - so that stumped us as well. As we left - we saw the hostess with a manager outside the restaurant making an attempt to find us - but we were already driving away.

Bricktops has a vibrant bar scene - and a nice outdoor (covered) patio - so if you're looking for drinks and appetizers with friends (and you can get good service) it's probably a good place to go - BUT - if you want GOOD food and service - you simply can't beat J. Alexander's near the Cool Springs mall.

“Love this place!”

I could eat here everyday. I can recommend the fish tacos and the Palm Beach Salad but everything looks absolutely delicious.
