Description: Brx is a place where you can take your family or meet with your friends for some quality time and good food and drink. We wanted to create an atmosphere where people could gather casually in a sophisticated, yet down to earth locale. Brx's large dining room and outdoor patio offer a casual and comfortable ambiance to enjoy our American cuisine influenced by your favorite comfort foods. Our casual bar area is the perfect place for a glass of wine from our extensive wine list, or a round of beers with friends.

“Nice place in Great Falls”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

Six of us went to Brix on a Sunday night for dinner. The food was pretty good. My husband had the veal ravioli which he liked a lot. He also liked his Brix salad with goat cheese. I had a version of gazpacho which was okay. There were no tomatoes in this but a broth with cut-up zucchini and other veggies which was seasoned with cumin. Not bad but would have been better if the broth were thicker and some of the veggies pureed. My beef brisket was tasty but had a lot of fat on the meat. The sides were good - green beans and carrots not overcooked but not half raw either. The service was spotty. We had to ask several times for various things for the table which the waiter seemed to forget. The place was very busy and maybe they just need more help.

“Modern, stylish bistro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

A relative who dines here frequently introduced me to Brix, which is a quietly stylish, modern bistro. The service was unobtrusive but attentive, the food -- especially the appetizers - very good, and the wine list varied. The owner visited our table to say hello, which was a nice gesture. I look forward to going back again.
