Brickwall was my go to place for comfort food (meatloaf, potatoes, veggies loaded with gravy). I also liked the chicken and my wife loved the turkey chili. However, our last few visits the quality and service has started to deteriorate – making me question, what I liked about the place? I should have seen the writing on the wall – first the meatloaf veggie changed from peas and carrots to green beans to cauliflower to none at all (you need to order a side now). You also got two large slices of meatloaf with good seasoning and now you get three thin bland slices without veggies for the same price. I think the chicken also has gotten smaller but my wife thinks I am crazy. I guess the chef's have changed and management probably is watching as closely - but regular patrons do notice small changes.
The one saving grace is the beer is still good, but they need to get rid of the band set-up area and place some more hi-top tables so I can seat, eat and enjoy the games.
