We have eaten at the Brick quite a few times for lunch and dinner. NEVER had a bad meal, NEVER had bad service, NEVER disappointed! Dustan has been a wonderful (and much-needed) addition to the local dining scene. Most of us spent years driving to Boise for a meal like Dustan presents.
Ambiance can get alittle loud during lunch but it doesn't prohibit conversations.

Brick 29 comes HIGHLY recommended by us smilies/smiley.gif

A restaurant that should be in a much bigger city in little Nampa
This place is fantastic. I love taking out of town business associates here. It's never failed to please. The deserts are fantastic; the meals are wonderful. It's a rare gem.

There are ups and downs with service at any restaurant - but I have never had the service some of the people here have mentioned. This place has been absolutely fantastic.

It's a bit pricey - but it's for a nice meal. It's not really a kids place (we've not taken our kids - it costs too much and the food is adult food!).

Great Disappointment
With all the hype about this restaurant I had to give it a try. What a disappointment !!!! The food was mediocre at best and the service was nothing to be impressed about. I have to believe that many of the reviews of this restaurant were made by employees or friends of the owner. There are far better choices in Nampa to pick from.

Awesome Flavor
This is my Husband's and my favorite Restaurant in Nampa but a little pricey for my budget so we can't go there too often. I always get the Bistro chicken which I love (order it w/ mashed potatoes instead of what it comes w/ on the menu). The last time I went in July was w/ my sister-in-law and we went for my birthday. I decided to try something else so I tried the smoked Chicken Ravioli (I never saw it on their menu before) and OMG it was the best pasta dish I ever tasted and big portion as well. It was so good I ate it all but I could have easily taken some home for lunch the next day. The waiter was so good...brought drinks when we were on empty, checked up on us often....very friendly and when he heard it was my birthday he brought out a free dessert w/ two spoons. That was delicious too. The service was great...the food was awesome....a little spendy but for what you get it's worth it. Definitely 5 star!!

Went for Lunch. Food was GROSS! I mean really GROSS. Soggy French Fries (How can you mess these up?) and it took forever to get served! If you are thinking of checking them out, save your money.

still the best in town
My wife and I continue to dine at Brick29 weekly. I have lunch there 3-4 times a week. The reason is always the same, great food and great service for a fair price.

For their fall menu theyve added a pumkin bisque soup which is simply delicious ! Im honestly not a fan of pumkin pie so I thought I wouldnt like it but wow was it good.

Theyre also doing the Thanksgiving and christmas meal orders. We did it last year and it was fantastic. Basically they cook your entire holiday meal for you ! And it was cheaper than buying the groceries and better than anything I could cook. Not to mention the time saver, I picked mine up that day.

Theyve also added buffalo steak for a special occasionally. Usually available on weekends for dinner. Its tender and covered with a mushroom risota sauce. And once they had it oscar style with crab. Its the best buffalo steak Ive ever had.

I find the Brick 29 a class establishment
I would like to take ownership on some of the bad experiences some of you have had but I'm not the owner. I can't express how wonderful the Brick 29 is and how some of you should give it a second chance. I for one I'm very picky about what I eat and how I'm served and I haven't seen that side of the Brick 29 staff or food.

I would be happy to pay for your next meal if you give it another chance.

Kevin is stupid
I think that Doug is right about Kevin being a disgruntled employee. I'll bet he doesn't even know what he is talking about or how to spell Sysco. I've eaten at Brick 29 several times and is always a great experience. We need more restaurants like this in our community and Kevin can keep eating at drive thrus.

rude manager
We came in with a restaurant.com coupon and it was pretty funny to see the manager go from gushing all over with welcome to snubbing us once we set out the coupon. We went from special guests to nobodies in about 30 seconds. The funniest part is that restaurants like this try and hook lifelong customers with coupons but there's no way I'd come back here on a special day like an anniversary. Not when I see their true colors. A little respect goes a long way. We can't be the only people this has happened to, it was that obvious.

Lovely Lunch
My husband and I deided to try Brick29 for lunch on our day off, Tuesday. The mention in the Statesman reminded me that I wanted to try it. We live in Boise and it was a nice day so we put the top down on the convertable and went for a ride. What a warm and inviting space, quality old craftsmanship meets modern sleek styling. We were greeted and seated in booth by a large window with warm, sunny, diffused light shining in. Our server was lovely young women. Efficient, knowledgable and smiley without being too cute or too perky. I started with a tasty Mai Tai (it was my day off!) and Tim had a diet coke. I had a cup of the tomato basil soup that was crisp & full of flavor. Tim had the special for the day, cream of asparagus. It too was creamy and fresh flavored like the aspargus had just been picked. Both were steaming hot which is how soup is supposed to be. We shared our entres. Tim order the kurabuto ham & harvarti cheese sandwich that was warm & melty with a dijon sauce and a dill pickle slice. The baugette was tender on the inside and crisp on the outside. Just an all around yummy sandwich. The french fries were hot & crisp with coarse salt sprinkle over them. I had the beef tenderloin cobb salad. Again fresh, crisp ingredients - mixed green salad, cherry bell tomatoes, big chunks of blue chees, hard egg, crsipy bacon. The meat had a nice carmelization on it without being over cooked. The tarragon vinegarette was the perfect compliment to the meat & blue cheese. Delicious! As you can tell by now we really enjoyed our lunch. And all this for $42 including tip (20%+). What a deal! My only complaint is that we came in later, close to 2:00pm, the restaurant was not very busy and we were sat right by the bus station against the wall. An upper table would have been nice. The booth seat sat very low and we felt like little kids hanging onto the table. These however are little things. We look forward to our next visit and we will bring guests. And just one more note, to the person who aired his bosses' supposed dirty laundry. Be very careful about burning your bridges, you never know who your next boss might be.

it is a shame . . .
Actually, employees can be a great way to find out what a restaurant is really like. How else could you know that this guy doesn't pay his purveyors? I would want to know that about a restaurant that was spewing out p.r. about building community. I just can't stand hypocrites. I mean, this guy used to buy local and now he doesn't even pay his local merchants --- or CISCO.

It is clear that the following review is from a unhappy employee
It's ashame that an unhappy employee can go on a site like this and try to hurt a buisness. T

what a fake
Brick 29 hypes up all this 'local food' and caring about the community but there's local purveyors he hasn't paid in months. The food often is NOT local and NOT fresh. He doesn't make the dishes, his cooks do. What a joke that people pay a high price for something they're not getting.

Absolutely the best restaurant in Nampa and it gives Boise best places like Chandlers and Cottonwood Grill a real challenge for best steak around. Factor in price and Brick 29 is the best deal around. For the price of a chain restaurant meal like outback or chillis, you get at Brick 29 the quality of a Chandlers.

For romance its a great place to go. Interesting note, the hardwood floors are the original flooring that the freemasons installed 100 years ago in the building.

Great for lunch, soup and a sandwich for under $10 and its 4 star quality. The tomato bisque soup is simply the best ive ever had

Special tip, order the "Brick" dessert. It not on the menu but ask for it, very delicious

The food was fine but the service was not.
Had to ask the waitress for a steak knife, no spoon was brought to stir my coffee or tea.
It seemed a bother to her to attend our table. When I asked to have my remaining entree boxed she boxed the steak but not the veggies (Found this out after we got home). We tipped the customary 15%, however, she worked her way out of the 20% we were willing to part with. The experience was a bit of a dark cloud on my Birthday Dinner.

The Perfect Place
The Brick 29 is the perfect place for a casual lunch, meeting, or romantic dinner for two. I have been to the brick on many occasions now and have always walked away with a full stomach, smile on my face, and even a few extra bucks in my pocket I might not have had if I went somewhere else. They seem to know how to keep all of these things up to par and with the live music on many nights, this place just can’t be beat! Thank you Justin for bringing us a restaurant to be proud of here in Canyon County.

Always an delightful experience
We originally went to the Brick because our favorite waiter from Boise was there Saturday and Monday evenings. We were not disappointed in any way. The food is delicious, the prices better than many nice restaurants in Boise and the atmosphere is inviting and relaxing. It is the best kept secret in Nampa. We will return often and wish Brick 29 long term success!

Our favorite restaurant!
This is such a super place to eat. Everyone is so nice from the reservation gal on the phone, to the person who seats you, to our waiter. Did I mention the waiter was super awesome!? We ordered a huge crepe appetizer, super tender and yummy lamb shank, and the chicken dinner. We topped our meal off with drinks and an awesome "chocolate brick" for dessert. We came home overly full and with a smile. Even though you have to drive to Nampa, it is well worth it. The food value is the best that you will ever find. Yummy food, nice restaurant, live music, good service, and did I mention that the food is awesome. Keep doing what you are doing Chef Dustin! you've got this one nailed.

Fine dining
Brick 29 is still kind of a hidden gem. Very very good that is well presented.
Nampa is fortunate to have such a quality restaurant.
I had a pork shank there on my last visit that was superb. I have had the
lamb shank before that could win over any one who has not enjoyed lamb
in the past.
