Delicious food! My husband has been complaining that there isn't a good pub in Mankato but now he's ready to move in. You can definitely spend less than we did but we wanted to try so much of the menu. The Reuben egg rolls were amazing. I hate sauerkraut but I didn't even taste it in them. The fish and chips were great. I loved my Guinness cheesesteak. I had a cocktail that was the perfect strength and my husband was impressed with the beer selection. The Bailey's cheesecake we'll definitely be back and coming here for special occasions... or if it was up to my husband, for all day every day. Loved it!
Parking: When we went there was only one spot open in the whole lot so you may need to park across the street at Again
Second best place in Mankato
Very good Irish food! Decor is nice, staff was polite and all our food was delicious. Would recommend!
Very cool interior. Friday so they were 3/4 full and had a lot of staff on but we had a long wait before our server came over. Food was OK, half the table liked it, half did not so I guess it depends on what you order. Drinks off the house special list took awhile, were bad, and were spendy. Tap beer was good and decently priced. Server seemed like she wanted to be anywhere else. Will go elsewhere next time which was sad because we wanted to like it.
Absolutely the worst experience ever! Decided to celebrate our 33rd Anniversary on 09/29/23 5:25 pm arrival at a new establishment in Mankato. We arrived and were told 45 minute wait, we were okay with that and actually got seated in 25 minutes. What happens next is truly unbelievable. We were seated at our table 25 minutes and not one single employee approached us! We had our menu's at the end of table showing we were ready to order, employee waiting on tables around us saw us there and ignored us at least 5 trips through our area. Finally a different waitress was talking to hostess and looked at us twice and hostess gave a quisical look. Finally the waitress approached us said she was sorry and took our order of Wings, Fries and Reuben appetizers along with our drink order and it would be expedited ( so she said) , after 10 minutes of waiting for drinks I caught her walking by and inquired about our drinks she again said sorry and we finally got them. In the meantime two men got seated by us, same waitress took their order and with virtually no wait maybe two minutes the already had their drinks? Plus they received their appetizer before us? Finally we get our order one hour after arrival at our Table, NOT the restaurant and the first wing I bit into wasn't done! We had enough! I returned my wing order and told waitress we'd just share my wives Reuben appetizers. Finally our Anniversary dinner from Hell was about over. We asked for our bill and to my surprise the wings I returned were on our bill! I then approached Bar tender who was near cash register a told him of our displeasure he also apologized, I than asked for manager( all 22-24 years old) and she came and spoke to me, never gave good reason for poor service and she had the gaul to tell me that they probe all meat served and mine I returned was okay after my wife and waitress both seen the blood and rawness of the FIRST chicken drumstick I bit into! The Manager was VERY unprofessional, she said she would fix bill and give us 15% off bill for our troubles, she then comes back with bill only to see that the under cooked wings were STILL on the bill! which I again pointed out to her, finally we got the correct bill from the manager who didn't apologize or say anything just left bill on table and walked off, Never in my life have I personally witnessed such unprofessional behavior. I will personally bad mouth the Olde Brick House till I'm in my grave. Very poorly trained staff and Manger should be let go
It was great came from az to eat here
The old brick house is a charming Irish restaurant that brings the warmth and flavors of Ireland to Minnesota. The decor, with its rich wooden accents and Celtic touches, creates an inviting atmosphere that feels nostalgic and welcoming. The menu is a mix of traditional Irish food and modern classics, offering variety for all different tastes. There were four of us in our party: we had drinks, appetizers, dinner and dessert. Every single bite was amazing! What truly stands out is the friendly and attentive service. Cheers!
Checked this place out for the first time tonight. Drinks where good, deserts very good. My prime rib commercial was very good, but we were not happy with the corned beef and cabbage. The one thing an Irish Restaurant should be good at is Corned Beef. The cabbage, potatoes and carrots where good but the Corned beef was thin sliced, dried out and flavorless. My guess it was prepackaged and not prepared on site.
