The Brick (Milledgeville, GA)
136 Oconee River Greenway, Milledgeville, GA
The Brick is a big modern sports bar looking place with a mix of brick walls and light wooden booths. It is located in downtown Milledgeville, opposite to Georgia College, which defines this cute small college town. It is packed this early Saturday for lunch. The menu features mainly salads, pizzas, and sandwiches (mostly chicken).
We start with a special, Hot Honey Mustard Wings (a half dozen at $6.95), which are described as “jumbo wings tossed in sauce perfectly blended with mustard, chili, and honey.” The wings are indeed quite chunky and fried crispy but a bit too dry. The sauce is mostly sweet, not hot at all. I then get a Jerk Chicken Club ($8.50): jerk chicken, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and black pepper mayo on sourdough. The chicken breast is big and juicy, the bacon crispy, and the toast thick and garlicky. Overall the sandwich has a nice kick, but is a bit too heavy. The added Seasoned Fries (+$1.25) are crusty Burger King-type fries, very underwhelming.
A great place to bring large groups of small children, but not one you would choose specifically for the food.
