The Brick Store is not only one of the best places in the city to drink beer, it's world renowned with visitors coming from all over. Beers are priced fairly and frequent events keep things interesting. As is the case throughout Decatur, BSP is a smoke free establishment!
Delish food and beer, but moody staff.
So, I have been a patron of The Brick Store Pub since it opened and I was too young to drink alcohol. It was quite a novelty then and walking in was like walking into some medieval world. (My husband says the upstairs looks like it's straight out of "the shire" from Lord of the Rings.)
The food is really good- especially the volcano and the fish 'n' chips... mainly because of the grainy mustard. They have a really great beer menu too, especially for beer snobs like me.
However- the last 2 times we went, the servers had some serious chips on their shoulders. The second-to-last time, the waiter actually chased me down the street to tell me that my date (now husband) didn't leave him a tip... which I saw (with my own eyes) him do. Now that I think back, we should have asked to speak with the manager about that. The last time I was with my brother and when he asked for some help choosing a good beer, the waiter literally picked up the beer menu (with a wooden back) and dropped it on the table in front of him, making it clatter, causing people to actually turn and look at our table.
Sooo... needless to say, we haven't been back since. There may have been a time when The Brick Store could get away with crappy service, but it's not the only cool restaurant or pub in Decatur anymore. I'd go to Leon's, Steinbeck's or UJoint before I went back to Brick Store.
I sure do miss that volcano though.... *drool* *sigh*.. Maybe one day soon I'll just get it to go.
No wonder it's listed on the "Best Of" on Citysearch!.
Like the headline says...no wonder it's listed in the "Best of" on CitySearch!
This place has been around for quite awhile, I hear, but for me I am a relative newbie (even though I have lived in the Atlanta area all my life!!) to the pub.
Right in the heart of downtown Decatur Square, this place has indoor & outdoor seating. A friendly, almost old-world atmosphere hits you as you walk in. They've got a huge selection of beers, awesome selection of food, excellent service, and the customers & regulars are all great; you don't get any of those drunken bar brawls here :)
Best Beer Bar Around. Look for the crowd of people in Decatur Square kicked back on the patio sipping a beer, and you've likely found the Brick Store Pub. This warm and cozy tavern is a definite must for any beer lover. The staff is unbelievably knowledgeable and can easily steer you in the right direction when it's time for beer selection. And oh, the beer selection! It's varied, interesting, and ever-changing. While you're there sipping a cold one, peruse the menu and sample something, anything--it's hard to go wrong with the pub's tasty food selection. And that's not just the beer talking.
Great Place, Affordable, Cozy. Great place to go when craviing the bar experience.
Yummy. Try the soft pretzels with whole grain mustard; you will not be sorry.
Great Beer Selection; Food Just OK. This place is a funky little pub in the heart of Decatur that is known for it's extensive beer selection from around the world. Not being a beer drinker, I probably don't appreciate that fact as much as my beer loving buddies were able to. The wine list was OK but no where near as extensive as the beer. Food was ok -- I had a pretty standard cheeseburger and my friends had sandwiches-- but certainly nothing to rave about. Servers are prompt and friendly. Overall, I would say go here to drink, not to have a memorable meal.
Atlanta's beer bar no-brainer.. This wood and brick Decatur behemoth has a good argument for having the best beer selection in Atlanta. With an ever-evolving list hovering around the stout figure of 200 bottles and dozens of draughts, everyone from Emory students to twenty and thirty-something’s (or just any beer fanatic) gulp down pints ranging from hometown favorites like Sweetwater to some of the most obscure German high gravitys. The large horseshoe-shaped bar is great, but be sure to sneak upstairs to the low-ceilinged Belgian bar, where the hop and barley lover will be treated to Belgium’s finest served by oft-bearded, flannel clad dudes who truly know their brew. As one of the pre-eminent players in the gastropub craze, the menu stands strong on its own with everything from the spicy “volcano” bread bowl of Brunswick stew, to a light pasta salad.
Great Beer and Descent Food. Brick Store is one of my favorite places. They always have a number of new beers I want to try and I can always find something good. I've never had a bad experience here and the wait has gotten better since Leon's opened. I also really like that they have some pasta options that go a little above the standard pub food. I don't think you will find any place in the Southeast that can match their beer selection.
Great Beer. First of all they have 300 beers on the menu and they are all great beers! Secondly, the service is consistantly good. We usually go there after work (4-7pm) no waiting to get a seat at the Belgin bar and we have a great time every time. It does get busy there and sometimes the wait staff is overwhelmed, but they will take care of you. If you cop an attitued with them, they will with you. Take it for what it's worth, great place for really good beer!
Great bar. this is a great bar, with nice bartenders, and a great selection.. its a relaxing place to have a pint or 2
