    We’re from out of town and had an appointment downtown. So pleased we found Brick and Porter on Open Table! Sandwiches were great -lobster roll and the Cuban. Service was great! Beer selections were fabulous. We love going to local places!

    Had a reservation and we were seated at a table very near the door, it was very cold. The door continually stayed open due to it getting stuck on the concrete. We waited a long period of time to be waited on... we never received our appetizers. When our entrees arrived they were not warm. Overall not impressed.

    We easily booked a reservation for 8 on a Saturday night using OpenTable. We were running a few minutes late due to traffic, but they happily seated us with no problem at all. The hostess did make us aware that they did have another reservation for our table at 9:15 (if that was ok with us) which was 2 hours from our seated time. We did not feel rushed at all, but it was nice to be asked and/or made aware right away so that we could be respectful of time. The restaurant was completely full as can be expected on a Saturday night at 7 so having the ability to make a reservation for a large party was perfect! We had several appetizers and full meals plus drinks and it was all amazing! I, personally, had the salmon and LOVED it! I believe we all walked away happy with not only the food, but also the service and cost. Would highly recommend!!

    I made reservations for a special night out with another couple a few weeks in advance. Was let down that we had the table right next to the door. It was freezing. We had to eat dinner with our jackets on which made it very uncomfortable. The food was good, the fried pickles were a bit of a disappointment, very little batter, so if you like to eat hot pickles your golden. The other complaint I'd mention is for anyone who is short like me, the chairs are tall but the bars to rest your feet on are too low leaving your legs to dangle. The back of my legs are still sore 2 days later. I'd go back but definitely sit in the back and at a low top table and not for a special event.

    Service was not great. For the first 10-15 minutes I wasn't sure we even had anyone waiting on us. It was not busy otherwise I would have understood. Table was not cleared until we had to say something. A couple of us had the burgers, one of them almost raw. I think I would've enjoyed Wendy's better. Never was asked how our food was. Maybe just a bad day, but we will not be going back.

    Went with my wife and daughter on a weeknight before Christmas. Not too busy when we arrived around 6ish but got busier while we were there. The food was excellent, I had the Meat Wagon Burger it came with a steak knife sticking out of the top, huge delicious burger that I could not quite finish. My wife had very good fish tacos and took two home for later and my daughter the chicken wrap. Portions were large and everything was very good. The service was friendly if a little slow, though once we ordered the food came out fast. Will definitely be going back

    We went on a Saturday with a reservation for a party of 9 , we were a bit early but still were seated immediately. Our server was attentive, drinks quality with lots of options for beer people and bourbon people... I recommend the maple Manhattan w bacon. Prime rib special was very good , as well as French onion soup

    Perfect location for our show at the civic. The food is beyond incredible. Service is a bit slow. Plan on having three or four different servers. Some super happy. Others a little abrupt. But the food and atmosphere make up for it.

    We really enjoy Brick & Porter, but have been disappointed the last two times we have eaten there in the past month. I have bragged about the marvelous nachos until the last two visits. In early Nov, the swatchos had been substituted for the nachos. All the toppings were on top of the chips and not layered as in previous orders. Then on Sun. My grandson and I shared the swatches and requested that they be layered. They were w/spicy chips and spicy arugula. My grandson, who likes spicy food, said his mouth was burning, as was mine. I asked our waitress for some plain chips and she brought some. I also asked for some salsa. We were never told that there was an extra charge for the chips or the tiny container of salsa. Soooo, we paid the bill and headed to the Civic Theater. My husband told me later. I only wish he would have told me while we were at the restaurant.

    We were visiting GR for the weekend this restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel. The service was friendly and fun. The sandwiches and burgers (and battered fries) were especially good; the hummus appetizer was so-so (the pita points were good, but the chips were bland).

    We came in to watch the Lions football game.Three big TVs, 2 were turned to the game and made us very happy. We had 6 people and everyone enjoyed their sandwich. Drinks were good too. Volume of music was good so that we could also have conversations. Tables were spread out enough so others were not in our conversation.
