Bricktown Brewery

On a date with my husband at Bricktown Brewery in Shawnee, OK.
Whenever we have a chance to try a new restaurant, we take the opportunity.

Bricktown Brewery is fairly new in that it has been in Shawnee only about a year. It has a sports bar section. One of the assets is that they sell locally brewed beer.  Bring early in the day, we didn’t try the beers.

The menu is incomplete. Meals come with sides but no side dishes are listed on the menu.  We opted for the Trio appetizer, a basket of chips with guacamole, salsa, and questo for dipping. The chips were house made and unsalted. The flavor was good after we salted them. When dipping into the sauces, the chips broke easily. Would have been better to have made slightly thicker.

I ordered the steak and mushrooms with sweet potato fries and black eyed peas.  The server surprised me when the steaks were served by along us to check to see of they were prepared we properly before he left the table.  Mine was overcooked but edible.  The food temperature was barely warm.  I has to exchange the black eyed peas. The server didn’t mention they have bacon in them and I am allergic to pork. I tried the fries okra instead.

The food presentation was very good overall. Just minor changes would have made the meal better.  The server was attentive. Prices are reasonable.

Overall, I would say that I will come again if the kids are not with me. No kids menu choices for them.
