We enjoyed our Mother's Day brunch at Brick. From the Host/Hostess seating us, to our Waitress/Servers, everything was superb. Food was delicious too. We will continue to dine at Brick on a regular basis. Never had a bad meal there.

Great location with view over the river from 4th floor balcony. Space was a little tight as our table was next to a door that was propped open. Food was great, good selection of drinks and service was very good.

Had tried to visit Hook and Vine before, but was never able to get a table. Now I know why! Amazing food and service! There were 3 in my party and everyone loved their food! From the Deviled-Egg App to our delicious entrees of Shrimp & Grits, Fried Grouper Sammy and a yummy pasta dish to our fabulous beignets for dessert! Everything was scrumptious and our waitress was amazing as well! It’s a tiny little place that used to be an old bay beach house so not a lot of tables inside, but they do have outside dining when the weather cooperates. They also have a decent sized bar inside as well. Decorated in great Maryland Chesapeake Bay decor it feels like a comfy home! The only negative spot was it seemed to be freezing inside for some reason. I know wait staff usually dials the ac down bc they are moving around nonstop, but us old peeps need a little warmth!
