I'm giving one star for the customer service. The food is great and I appreciate them having so many vegan options. However, while visiting from Nashville this past weekend, the rotund lady at the cash register was very rude to me. While paying for my order, I inquired about the ingredients in their vegan cookies and was met with a very nasty tone and then she proceeded to tell the young lady standing next to her to tell me because apparently she didn't feel the need to. Not sure if it was because I was black or what but I didn't deserve nor appreciate being disregarded and will definitely impact my decision of going back here if ever I visit GR again.

Highly recommend this place for their vegan pizza! I am dairy free and have been missing pizza. I had the tempest and it was AMAZING. I will definitely be going back whenever I need a good slice.

I can't say enough good things about Brick Road! This is my favorite restaurant in Grand Rapids because of the vast amount of vegan options on their menu, great service, and delicious dishes! Get the Zed's Dead burger! It will change your life!

After being recommended to check out Brick Road Pizza by multiple friends, my family decided to dine here on Saturday evening. The reason that we decided to go here is because finding a restaurant to work for my family is difficult. We have a few in our family who are gluten and dairy free, I am pescetarian, my sister can mostly only eat veggies and meat, my parents stay away from sugar, etc. So, Brick Road just made sense because of their extensive menu that has tons of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options. Truly, their menu is amazing, so many options, that all sounded really delicious. They had food options for every single person in our family. The vibe inside of Brick Road is like a casual Italian restaurant with posters and plants and mismatched tables. The space is full of energy and lively. Our server was great as she took good care of my family of 9 (even though some of my family members are not great at talking to servers kindly). She was on it and checked in with us often and brought us refills on drinks. Unfortunately I have chose to give Brick Road 3 stars because the food was just so mediocre and our pizzas took forever to come out. We ordered 4 pizzas, a salad and a sandwich and it felt like we were waiting for way too long. We arrived at 5:15pm so it's not like it was the peak of rush dinner time. Our appetizers came out quickly but then we just waited and waited. Our server was awesome and checked in to let us know that it would "be out soon." She told us that twice but we kept waiting. I understand that they were busy and we were a group but it really took forever. I was really excited to order their unique sounding pizza with herb butter, arugula and pine nuts and after seeing the fresh, heavily loaded photo of this pizza on Yelp, I was persuaded. When my food came out though, my pizza was soaking with grease. Like the bottom was literally dripping and there were very few toppings. Hardly any arugula. It was very OK. I would definitely not order it again. The kids were happy with their gluten free, dairy free pizza and my mom enjoyed her salad but most of the other adults felt like I did-meh. Such a bummer. If I ever go back, I'll order a sandwich perhaps. I'm not rushing back though.

Amazing food and great cocktails! I would highly recommend the classy meatballs and goat cheese, pesto and marinara appetizers. The gluten free and regular pizza was awesome also! Plus it is very reasonably priced! Win win!!!

I honestly kind of rolled my eyes at the idea of just getting a vegan pizza on my night in Grand Rapids -- been there, done that. But this place does more than pizza, and the vegan pizza they *do* dish out is still better than probably any I've had in metro Detroit. The buffalo tofu pizza? Banger. Tasted just like any buffalo chicken pizza I remembered eating. The crust looks mediocre, but it's sneaky phenomenal. The vegan philly? Insane. The bread is an interesting choice, but it's reminiscent of a Hot Pocket, and I wholly recommend it. I'd say it's my favorite veganized philly I've had, and other reviewers agree. From the thin-sliced tempeh to the mushrooms and the insanely not-so-vegan tasting cheese, it's any every day sort of craving. The vegan poboy? Ridiculous. Again, awesome bread, this time on more of a sub bun. The "chicken" would fool anybody. The tomatoes on it were even some of the best I've had.. where the hell are you buying those things? I usually don't care for tomato. The fried jalapenos and splash of hot sauce just brought it all together with a slather of mayo to cool things down. Spectacular. Seriously guys, this is the place to go in Grand Rapids... vegan or not, you're gonna want to try the "fake" options out for yourself.

Have you ever known a place so good that you'll literally drive an hour out of your way to eat there? Well, Brick Road Pizza is such a place. Whenever I'm going to be anywhere remotely close to Grand Rapids, I hustle myself in for their INCREDIBLE list of vegan selections. Whether you're a veg-head or not, this place is flippin' amazing! So. Many. Choices. Only. One. Stomach. I'm a huge fan of their Carville Po-Boy (add the olive tapenade on the side, it's the closer) and may or may not make groaning noises whilst eating. So, if you're looking for truly delicious food head this way. If you're a vegan who is looking for a menu with actual choices AND all the choices are delicious, then DEFINITELY head this way!

I love coming here and ordering vegan options. The food is so delicious that you can't even tell it's vegan. Also there is so much to choose from. Love coming back here and trying something new every time. Only thing I don't like is service is always really slow. But worth the wait.

Caleb, Nick, and the kitchen staff were great! Having major food allergies, they made sure our food was made to specifications and brought it out separately from the non allergy food. They were very friendly and considerate. Can't wait to go there again!

My wife and I love this place . It has been our to-go spot since the beginning of our relationship. My wife is vegan and she introduced me to vegan food at brick road & oh boyyy! I felt in love . Everything is pure perfection from the service to the food to the recycle straws

Absolutely blown away by Brick Road! We were visiting from out of town and had a mixture of vegans, vegetarians, and non vegans in our group so this was the perfect option for us all to be satisfied. The unique vegan options on the menu made it difficult to choose what to order. My significant other and I ended up splitting the tempest pizza and vegan philly cheese steak. Both of the items were so full of flavor and this was easily one of the best vegan pizzas I have had. Their buffet was even packed with vegan options! Great atmosphere, great service, and amazing food. Highly recommend!

The greatest Vegan Sunday Brunch ever. The Vegan Chili is awesome. The homemade sour cream, amazing.

Tricia Brands

First time here, came with a group and literally everything I tasted was amazing. Also had soup. They have gluten free and vegan options too!

Christopher Jennings

Brick road has a great artistic homey feel to it with great natural lighting and a beautiful collection of plants.


The vegan and the gluten free pizzas were delicious! The appetizers were great too! The regular pizza was good too- excellent service. Clean bathrooms! Definitely will go again.


Did not want to post this but the pizza was just awful. Crust was burnt and sauce/pizza didn't taste good. Got the Brick Road Pizza deep dish which I thought would've been their best because of the name but if this is their best I don't want to try anything else. Service and atmosphere was good but pizza was not. :( I'm surprised at all the great reviews. Maybe everything but their deep dish is great.

Michael Kohl

Delicious sandwiches, salads and pizza. Brick road has many veggie/vegan versions of popular dishes and sandwiches. Vegan and gluten free pizza options also abound. Their Sunday lunch buffet always had some unique and mouth watering items. A great place for the vegetarian/vegan and meat eater to meet for a meal.


Comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff. Great selection of vegan options. Everything I have tried is delicious! Their Sunday brunch is great!

Amelia Red

They have an awesome delicious menu just for vegans and gluten free people! And they also have a menu for meat lovers!

Caden Gilmore

Great food, great service. My order was messed up and they accidentally put vegan cheese on my pizza. Not a big deal in my eyes. Waitress was very apologetic, offered to make me a new one, told her it was fine. They added regular cheese over top of the vegan cheese and it was delicious and extra cheesey

Just dropped in for an impromptu lunch with my mom. Friendly staff all around, AMAZING server named KB who we will want to get every time we come back! Mom got a thin crust pizza, and I got the bahn mi sandwich. So good! Can't wait to come back again!

I had all but given up on trying to find my kind of pizza in west Michigan (thinner crust), but I am starting to find some great places. Brick Road Pizza tickled my fancy for thinner crust and quality ingredients. They have a variety of special pizzas as well, but classic pepperoni was all I needed.

James Mitterling

Great gluten free pizza and bread sticks. The toppings were plentiful and the flavor was excellent. I look forward to being back in Grand Rapids to enjoy cooking back to try the gluten free mushroom penne. It jumped off the menu for me and I almost got it and pizza ð?? but felt I needed to set a good example for the kids ð??? who by the way ate most of the bread stick order.

This place has it all: like meat, it's got it - like vegan food, it's got it - like gluten free food? It's got that too. And the best part is it's all GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD food no matter what. They put a little extra love in it. It's so good, seriously - just go :)

Laura Powell

Friendly, fun atmosphere. Food was delicious. Excellent vegan options. Love this place!

Brick Road is my favorite restaraunt. Service is always great. Friendly staff. Best vegan pizza I've ever had. Good food for a vegan, vegetarian or meat-eater. The cookie Sunday is to die for! They have vegan ice cream and regular ice cream. The cookies are freshly made. Prices are nice and low. I will say sometimes it can be a bit of a wait for your food, but that's because a lot of it is made fresh and so it's worth it.

Andrea Eory

Amazing vegan food, good prices, and super friendly staff! Couldn't ask for anything better. Will definitely make the 2.5 hour trip again soon.

Emily N.

Amazing vegan options! A vegan/veg dream land. Comfort food galore. Ask for the dessert of the day. Vegan Mac and cheese calzone is huge and will fill your cheezy needs.

Brick Road Pizza is a solid spot for pasta, pizza, breadsticks, and anything Italian. It's carb-heavy, so be prepared for a little bit of a food coma as you leave this place. It's a smaller-looking joint tucked away in EGR, but it's definitely a hidden gem for anyone who has dietary needs or concerns. It's got just as many vegan options as it does gluten-free, vegetarian, and meat-eaters. I choose to eat anything and everything under the sun, so it's perfect for me as they have pizzas with a lot of meat, cheese, and doughy crusts. However, my girlfriend is vegan and they have plenty of pasta dishes and pizzas that can be made with vegan cheese, meat substitutes, and vegan dough. From macaroni and cheese to their famous Loaded Potato Pizza, they've got everything for everyone, which is the most important part of their restaurant. Their breadsticks are unbelievable, so make sure to start with those. Also, save some room for their cookies for dessert as those are pretty good too. Like I said... be prepared to leave this place very full and very comatose.

Amazing food and service! Love all the vegan options as well! We will be going back!

Heather F.

SO good! The vegan Philly cheesesteak is my favorite dish. Alcohol selection is good, service is great. Atmosphere is good.

Liz Larabel

Madi Mazurek

Brick Road is so funky fresh!!! Their food is not only delicious but unique, and all the staff truly care about your dining experience. Highly recommend!

Sandra P.

This place is really good. Vegan options are awesome and can be customized. They don't put too much vegan cheese on the pizza it's just perfect. Highly recommend. Had non vegans with us too and they loved theirs as well. One of my fav vegan places. Service is great also!

Kim A Peterson

great pizza, terrific service


We loved our server (Maggie), loved our drinks (Zombie), but the pizza was not the best. We also ordered tator tots & breadsticks which were good. Someone suggested the normal pizza.. maybe the next time we make it up!

Allison Stefanich

Aaaaahhh!! As a vegan chef, I rarely eat out. I love everything about being vegan, EXCEPT for the rarity of truly great dining out experiences (especially on those rare occasions when I don't feel like cooking). Enter Brick Road! Don't be in a hurry when you go... Just sit back, relax, and get ready for an AMAZING meal!! Cool vibe, great service, Hi Magi!! Vegans, this place is the jackpot. Seriously. Get the mac and cheese!

shannon jalowiecz

Great and tasty food options for everyone! Has food for the meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans. Gluten free options available for a 1$ more. It is a bit pricey (ex. 16" pizza for 24$) but worth it. Just give it a try and you'll love it too!

Rosalia Heppler-Austin

Pretty damn amazing pizza and menu options!! You wouldn't believe how gluten and vegan friendly they are! Not to mention the most important facts... That it tastes amazing!!!
