We arrived in Carlsbad mid afternoon, having missed lunch en route. By 4 PM we were famished and eager for a good dinner. We saw this restaurant driving by, did a trip around the block and came back. It was early enough to find a table quickly and get served. We liked what we saw on the menu and decided... More

My husband and I went on a whim to Carlsbad and arrived at Yellow Brix around 8:30. We were unaware that the restaurant closes at 9 but that was not a problem for us. The owner who greeted us was more than happy to accommodate us even though all the tables were filled. She was extremely and so was the... More

The menu looks good on paper, but the actual food was disappointing. Few seasonings, little creativity. Service friendly but harried. Ambience was pretty good, although the unusual heat this time of year kept us inside and off the patio. The tortilla soup had the look of a special dish but, sadly, lacked needed seasoning. Bread just okay, oil and mozzarella... More

Went for lunch on our mini vacation and we were disappointed with disorganized service. This restaurant has good atmosphere and appears to be clean (restroom was also clean). It was Sunday at 11:45 and we got a table right away as the place was only half full. I ordered the "bowl" of chicken tortilla soup and my wife had the... More

We traveled to the Carlsbad area to hike the highest peak in Texas and also to explore the caverns.... during our time in Carlsbad, we stumbled upon this incredible restaurant with customer service that has been lost to the ages. We have been here two nights in a row so far.... I cannot tell you how how much we appreciate... More

We needed food on Sunday evening and stopped in after 8PM. We were told that they were fully booked and we needed a reservation. The placed looked interesting so we secured reservations for the next evening. The restaurant is fairly small but very nice. The service was excellent as was the food and this was very surprising in the small... More

We visited Carlsbad for Texas Spring Break as a family. We stopped by Yellow Brix for lunch on Sunday and they were so overwhelmed with the sheer number of people in the area they were very honest and told us they were just too busy and let us know the wait would be a bit. We just said we would... More

We made reservations and were seated promptly. Service was speedy. Food was tasteless and unsatisfying. Our meal cost over $70 for a family of 4. The cordon bleu was over cooked and dry. Alfredo sauce was runny and in need of salt and cheese. Hamburger was over cooked and had no flavor. The nachos with pulled pork was awful: canned... More

We gave this place three chances because the food is great as is the ambience and it could be an awesome place, but I don't care how good all that is, the restaurant industry is a SERVICE industry, and this place is a huge fail in that department. The first time we went for lunch we are told we had... More
