Bricks Eats & Drinks


Bricks is so aptly named because it is a historic building constructed almost entirely of bricks. We are located at 482 Main Street where you will find a fun, friendly and professional staff ready to serve you lunch and dinner, seven days a week. Just drop by or call ahead for a “Bricks Fast Pass.” We serve lots of fun, comfort foods in a contemporary publike setting, with plenty of appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, pasta & salads. The more serious minded eater can still get a 14 oz centercut ribeye steak, grilled lamb chops , or salmon. Our lineup at the tap features the best local brews around. We have an extensive “by the glass” wine list focusing on the many outstanding local wineries, and also have a full bar.
