Brick House Tavern & Tap in Orlando, FL

Brickhouse Tavern and Tap is one of the newer restaurants on International Drive near the convention center. This place was definitely a chain, but this is the only Brickhouse I've ever come across. The restaurant is modern looking inside with long couch-like booths leading up to a large fireplace. The clean design of the restaurant was sort of offset with the multitude of TVs hanging overhead all playing the fishing channel, but let's talk about the food instead of poorly placed TVs.
I had the Italian sausage hoagie. This was a good sized sandwich, stuffed with sausage, peppers, onions, spicy tomato sauce, and topped with cheese. Tator tots were served as a side. For the most part, the sandwich tasted good although I did have an issue with the bread. The bread was really soft and mushy, similar to a hot dog bun. So much so that the bread got soggy really quickly from the sauce on the sandwich. The soggy roll fell apart when I tried picking up the sandwich, thus defeating the normal sandwich eating method. The rest of the hoagie was good, but the bread was bad.
Someone else at the table ordered chicken & waffles. Perhaps this would have been a better choice!
Like many of the restaurants on International Drive that come and go, the food at Brickhouse Tavern was okay but wasn't something I'd go rushing back for. The restaurant was actually pretty void of customers when I ate there, so I actually wonder if they'll be around if I get the urge to give them another try sometime in the future...

We've been there a few times, and the items we've ordered have been pretty dang good. I've only posted one review on the site, but we haven't been disappointed. The Chicken Fried Steak was on the low end of the totem for us.
