I have been to the Brick a few times for lunch. The staff has always been very nice and polite. I never have to wait for refills on my tea . I think what takes the longest time at lunch, is actually me trying to decide what to have! I highly recommend the Ruben.
I usually can get in and out in under a half hour if I'm in a hurry . If your looking for a tasty snack, I highly recommend their crab slammers with a side of honey mustard or ranch dressing as they are simply wonderful. But be warned the Crab slammers are kind of spicy and not for those who have weak stomaches.
