Great vegan food - Edit

We got the philly cheese stake sandwich and one of their house made burgers. Both were totally awesome. They came with kettle chips and a pickle spear, but other options were available like a "citrus slaw".

Lots of vegan options on the menu, including items labeled to indicate that they can be made vegan.

We also shared a chocolate cheesecake with strawberry topping (like a syrup with some diced strawberries). This was quite good but we probably would have preferred a smaller size as it was very sweet.

Will definitely return here next time we're in GR. It seems just a tad pricey but definitely worth it for the delicious vegan creations. Nice atmosphere also.

Brick Road has the BEST vegan food!! - Edit

There are few that rival Brick Road for vegan-fare in Grand Rapids. This is easily one of my favorite restaurants. They have vegan sandwiches, pizzas, breadsticks, burgers, salads, amazing mac and cheese, chocolate chip cookies, and so much more. Ask what the vegan special of the day is (and dessert special!). Seriously SO delicious. Everything on menu can be made vegan if it isn't already. THEY DESERVE A 5 STAR RATING!! (Happy cow doesn't allow it because they're not fully vegan).

Pros: Excellent vegan food, Good value, SO many vegan options!

Cons: I can't give them a 5 star rating

Great! - Edit

I love Brick Road. I've been there probably 5 times since discovering them and I've yet to have a bad experience. Great food; however I tried a pizza today (after being skeptical in the past because they use Daiya, I'm not a fan) and I was quite disappointed BUT the waiter was super nice and exchanged my meal with no issues. If you don't like daiya, skip the pizza and get a sandwich, they're delicious! Also recommend the breadsticks!

Pros: nice service, aesthetic atmosphere

Cons: daiya cheese

Carb lovers rejoice! - Edit

This place is great! It's so nice to be a vegan and have multiple delicious options. I got the vegan pulled pork sandwich and my husband got the Reuben. The Chibata bread is more of a flat pita type of bread but it tastes delicious. They don't have rye for the Reuben but is still tastes good, even if not truly a Reuben in terms of bread. We got to go orders and when we are it it was still warm and gooey. Major carb cravings satisfied!

Pros: multiple options, delicious , good for bringing meat eaters

Cons: food isn't always what you picture based on name, a little pricy

Great Place, Great Food! - Edit

If you are looking for comfort food, this is the place. They are open late and have a nice friendly atmosphere. They clearly mark gluten-free and vegan options on the menu. Much of their menu is vegan--everything from mac and cheese to sandwiches and pizza. The first time I ate here, the waitress was fantastic. I have many food sensitivities. She helped me modify the spinach dip appetizer to be both gluten-free and vegan by finding corn chips to substitute instead of bread. She also gave me a great menu tour when I told her that I had never been to this restaurant before. Their gluten-free/vegan pizza crust turned out to be delicious, and they have a long list of great toppings. The second time that I ate here, the waitress (not the same person) was not very friendly, balked at my menu questions and basically left me at my table for as long as possible before returning to ask if I needed anything. As they say, the 3rd time is a charm, so I will try again to see what type of service I receive. The food is absolutely worth going back for as it is flavorful and delicious. I understand that their monster cookies are out of this world, but they contain several ingredients I can't have. I can say that their cheesecake with strawberries was beyond blissful. Seriously, it was amazing! I would definitely recommend eating here.

Pros: Open late, Gluten-free options clearly marked, Amazing desserts

Cons: Inconsistent Customer Service

They have vegan cookies - Edit

Need I say more? Yes? Ok!
Really great all around! Great food, overwhelmingly large selection for vegan and gluten free. Literally, anything you want, you can get here. They stay open late as well, so when you have a hankering, make this one of your first stops!

Pros: Great food, Great atmospere, Great people

Nom Nom Nom - Edit

This place is the best, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! I love the verity and being able to choose from more than 1 or 2 choices. My husband who is not a vegan loves this place (and the vegan food). Its wonderful to swap half-way though a sandwich or pizza and get to try 2 different menu items each time we go. I'd give this place 5 cows if I could, please support places that have vegan stuff on their menu. The more we show our support the more likely other business will have vegan food and items.

Pros: Vegan pizza!, Beer, Large vegan selection

Cons: Loud when busy, East town parking

5-Cow Worthy - Edit

This is one of those rare restaurants that although they serve meat, they are absolutely 5-cow worthy. Their menu is *loaded* with vegan options. You can get far more vegan dishes here than at the 100% vegetarian restaurant in town (Gaia Cafe). In fact, I relish the feeling in a restaurant like this because even though it serves meat, the vegan vibe dominates. Brick Road has achieved something that appears rather difficult in the restaurant world: to have a primarily vegan restaurant with a predominantly mainstream clientele.

If you're vegan, you will be happily overwhelmed with all the options on the menu and basking in vegan glory. It's the kind of place where you go and it makes you think if every place was like this, all would be right with the world. Their pizzas, sandwiches, sides - everything is delicious. Service can get slow when it's busy and when it's hot in summer they are slow to crank the A/C, but it's a small price to pay to experience these tasty vegan delights.

Best pizza around - Edit

Love their food, other pizza places don't compare. Their vegan pizza is the best. I'd prefer that cheese over regular dairy cheese--less greasy.

Pros: Great food

Deserves 5 Cows! - Edit

I love places like Brick Road Pizza. As vegans, there is some sort of universal "stick it to the man" vibe regarding restaurants that aren't totally veg. For example, I cannot give this restaurant the 5 cows that it deserves. There is a higher chance that a meat eater will try vegan food if it's readily available to them in a non-threatening, "normal" restaurant like Brick Road Pizza, but I digress.

My husband and I ate here recently. There is parking in the back, and there is also a little parking lot around the corner. The inside is adorable. We sat at probably one of the most comfy booths ever. They serve some really great craft beers at a decent price.

Our waitress was adorable and didn't pressure me to order when I was obviously overwhelmed by the extensive amount of vegan foods offered. Let me also point out that the options were nearly endless and all so different. I ordered a vegan Philly Cheese Steak sandwich, which is unlike me because I don't like faux beef. I ordered ciabatta bread, which was amazing. It was flat and crisp, reminiscent of a Greek pita. The filling was amazing. It had seitan playing the roll of steak, and it was delicious. It didn't taste beefy or fake. The inside was gooey and creamy. I loved it. It came with a side of kettle cooked chips and a pickle. I wish there was an option on the side without having to pay $2 extra.

The prices were a little high. My husband ordered a non-vegan pizza and wasn't crazy about it for the cost.

All in all, I loved it here and would definitely go back!

Pros: Many vegan options, Delicious, Comfortable

Cons: Pricey

Five Cows - Edit

I loved it! This pizza place has it all. The vegan options are limitless, and there's something to please every omnivore as well. None of the "crunchy granola" vibe that can scare off people unaccustomed to veganism. I can't wait to eat here again and again. Also, try the buffalo tofu, it's amazing! My only adjustment would be to possible ask for slightly less oil in my dish, which I bet they would be more than happy to accommodate.

Pros: Great Variety, Comfortable Atmosphere

Full vegan menu including delicious stuffed shells, a variety of pizzas, sandwiches, appetizers and sides. Portions are generous and prices are quite reasonable.

Pros: excellent food, great selection, friendly service

Brick Road Pizza Co. - Edit

Fantastic menu for any veg*n! Separate menus for omni and veggiesaurasus. The restaurant is minimalist and the service isn't lightning fast, but the food is delicious and well worth the wait. The staff is also friendly and happy to accomdate vegans! Go here!

Pros: Great veg menus, Delicious, Friendly service

Cons: A little slow

Great Veg Comfort Food - Edit

While the menu is not a healthy one, it is very veg & very delecious. All of the sandwiches are to die for, the veggie chips that come with the meals are so yummy & the pizza is delicious. One of the best dining options for vegs in the area, for sure.

Pros: Excellent Food, Good Service, Great Atmosphere
