Outstanding food in a historic Petersburg setting complemented by an English Pub atmosphere. Shepherd's Pie, Squash Soup, Oysters Brickefeller, Triple Chocolate Dessert! What more do you want, especially at affordable prices! Did I mention a Beer and Wine Bar with the best of selections? Fab place to visit.

Nice restaurant in downtown. The scallops were very good. The service in the bar area was prompt. We would return.

While visiting family in the area I fell in love with this unique restaurant. When you walk through the front door you feel as if you have truly stepped back in time. The owner/chef and his wife do an amazing job of running this small but quaint gastro pub. The bartender is a warm and welcoming personality . He really... More

My wife and I were traveling through on our way to a funeral in New Jersey. We stopped for gas in Petersburg, and I looked up the restaurants on TA. The Brickhouse Run came up, and I suggested it. My wife was not happy because we had to drive .9 miles to get there. I am so glad this turned... More

Thanks to tripadvisor my husband and I tried this restaurant as we were traveling through Petersburg. We were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was cozy and fun, lots of locals and friendly staff. I had to convince my husband to give it a try as he wasn't convinced a British Pub like place would appeal to him but he was so... More

The best restaurant in Petersburg. It was crowded because it's no secret, we enjoyed having a drink at the bar (the had cask pours) until our table was ready. The food was plentiful and delicious.

Place was packed and I felt like I'd walked into "Cheers" but nobody knew my name. The crowd seemed local, looked us over, and went back to eating. The host came over,... More

Lovely dining room and authentic bar in historic building sets a romantic tone. Varied menu including smaller plates and many interesting microbrews.
