Beginning this week at its 16 fan-friendly locations across the U.S., Brick House is adding great game-watching appetizers and main dishes to its already-extensive menu, introducing a variety of crowd-pleasing meatballs, new sandwiches, salads and a new Wild Mushroom pizza.

--Classic Meatballs
--Greek Keftedes made with lamb, pesto and goat cheese
--Buffalo Chicken tossed in Franks hot sauce
--Drunken Pork with bacon, buttermilk and a whiskey barbecue glaze

Additional new menu items include: Thai Chicken Salad, Seared Halibut served with russet thyme sweet potato hash, and three new sandwiches including the Turkey Club, Sourdough Pastrami sandwich and a Mahi Sandwich. Loyal Brick House fans will still find old favorites on the menu like Soft Pretzels, Deviled Eggs and Fried Stuffed Olives. Brick House also features updated daily specials that include the following selections:
--Sunday: Grilled Ribeye
--Monday: Prosciutto Wrapped Meatloaf
--Tuesday: Steak Frites
--Wednesday: Chicken Pot Pie
--Thursday: Shepherd's Pie
--Friday: Lump Crab Cakes
--Saturday: House Roasted Turkey

"When designing our fall menu, we had football watching on our minds," said Ignite Restaurant Group Culinary Director George Atsangbe. "Each of the new dishes is classic American fare, served up in a new combination."

In addition to its new menu items, Brick House is also elevating the game day experience by letting guests reserve their choice of seats for Sunday NFL game viewing. With their reservations, fans are guaranteed a prime seat to watch their NFL game whether they want to enjoy the game from a soft leather recliner with a built-in beer glass holder and TV tray for dining, a spot at the bar, or a table for their whole party. Every seat in the house serves up free Wi-Fi. The best part? Reservations are free, and fans just need to call their favorite location to reserve their spot. Please visit for the telephone number to your favorite location.

"Our guests come to Brick House on game day with an infectious team spirit and competitiveness," said Chief Marketing Officer Robin Ahearn. "The reservation program just adds to the fun, ensuring guests are utterly comfortable with a prime viewing spot for their game of choice."

No football game is complete without a cold drink and Brick House has more than ample options, including new specialty cocktails - Maple Old-Fashioned anyone? - and a happy hour sure to please. Brick House customers can order up their favorite $1 "Ameri-Cans", enjoy well drinks for a steal or snack on any appetizer for just $5 each (happy hour specials can vary by market). Brick House offers customers more than 80 beers, including national and imported brews, local and regional craft beer, and domestic favorites, and even provides beers with a "kick," such as the Black & Tan, Bloody Brew, The Grizzly, Bee Sting and Liverpool Kiss.
