Have you ever visited Oklahoma City? I love it! It is a laid-back, come-as-you-are kind of town. I think everyone should visit at least once. And when you do, one area of Oklahoma City that you must visit is Bricktown. This is an entertainment, shopping, and dining district just outside of downtown. It is to OKC as the Riverwalk is to San Antonio or the French Quarter is to New Orleans. Over the last 25 years, the neighborhood’s old warehouses have been turned into some great restaurants and bars. The oldest, and one of my favorites, is Bricktown Brewery. We ate lunch here on our last trip to OKC and it was yummy! Here is my review of Bricktown Brewery.
As you can probably guess by the name, Bricktown Brewery is located in the heart of Bricktown. However, they have expanded into a chain that has stretched across four states. You can find one or more of their twelve breweries in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, and Texas. I have only visited the original in Bricktown, so this review is limited to that location. Whether you are on an adults-only trip or have your kids in tow, Bricktown Brewery is a great place to stop for lunch or dinner. If you are staying in Bricktown, you will probably be able to walk to it from your hotel.
The food at Bricktown Brewery is exactly what you would expect from a brewery: classic pub grub. They specialize in burgers, but they also have nachos, sandwiches, pizza, chicken tenders, and wings. There are some unexpected items on the menu, though, including meatloaf, salmon, and turkey pot pie. We have only tried their burgers and sandwiches. They are big and delicious! The fries are pretty good too! For the kids, they offer burgers, chicken, and corn dogs. Our son enjoyed their corn dogs. To see their full menu, head over to their website.
Of course, you can’t have a brewery without some brews! They have several that they brew in-house. They also offer a lot of microbrews from Oklahoma and Texas. Chris liked their beer selection, and he can be picky about his beers!
As I said at the beginning, you will find Bricktown Brewery in an old warehouse. There are high ceilings and lots of exposed brick and pipes. You can see an abundance of wood everywhere in the restaurant. The decor throughout the restaurant compliments the awesome features of the warehouse that are still readily apparent. The decor includes large poster-sized advertisements for the beers they brew. They also hung an American flag made out of Oklahoma license plates on one wall. For all of you sports fans, you will find televisions scattered around the restaurant making it easy to see the game from anywhere you sit.
The interior has a cool and cozy vibe to it that makes you want to hang out enjoying friends, food, and brews all day. I would feel just as comfortable in here with kids as without. In fact, every time we have eaten here, our son has been with us. We always see other people with children in here too.
Most of the burgers and sandwiches on the menu at Bricktown Brewery will cost you somewhere in the $9-15 range. The bigger plates will cost you a little more. The last time we ate here, our bill for three of us eating lunch and Chris having a couple of beers was $50, which also included tax and tip. I don’t think this is too bad if you are on vacation and want to have a good meal in a great location. Although, I don’t know if this would be a good choice if you are paying for a large family to eat.
I love going to Bricktown whenever we visit Oklahoma City. One of my favorite places to eat in that neighborhood is the Bricktown Brewery. It is a classic brewery in an old, revitalized warehouse. The restaurant is warm and cozy and has a relaxed vibe to it. They serve large portions of good food at reasonable prices. Additionally, they serve a wide variety of brews from around Oklahoma and the surrounding area. And, of course, they also serve their own brews as well. The next time you find yourself in Oklahoma City, venture down to Bricktown and grab a burger at Bricktown Brewery. I think you will be pleased! I hope you enjoyed this review of Bricktown Brewery.
