If the name doesn’t give it away, the Bricks Family Restaurant inside the new LEGOLAND Hotel continues the LEGO theme right into the dining experience. (My family and I were invited to stay and experience the LEGOLAND Hotel to experience the Bricks Family Restaurant at no charge as a preview to it’s grand opening. All opinions remain my own.) The restaurant is like walking into a vibrant italian restaurant. The color scheme is bright and fun but it’s the larger than life LEGO creations that stop kids in their tracks. The Brick’s Family Restaurant is decked out in giant LEGO Kitchen equipment and huge LEGO dishes of food!
Throughout the room are life size LEGO men equipped with kitchen utensils – and some of them are up to no good. You will even find huge spinning plates. Did I mention they were made completely out of LEGOS?! Unlike other restaurants where kids are given a rectangular piece of paper and a few crayons to keep them occupied, at Brick’s they get an ENTIRE table cover to color on and a cup full of crayons. Between the mischievous LEGO men and the table cloth keeping kids occupied parents actually have time to eat.
What’s even better is that Brick’s offers a buffet. After a long day trekking through the park the last thing hungry kids want to do is sit around and wait for food. So it’s great that families can come in, take a load off, order drinks and then dive right in to choosing the food the want to eat. Brick’s offers a variety of healthy and traditional choices (at both adult and child height level even!) so even the pickiest of eaters will find choices they love like mac n’ cheese and chicken nuggets.
The menu has been designed for kids of all ages (and their parents too) so there really is something for every taste. Amongst the comfort food, there was also excellent healthy and vegetarian choices.
Adult buffet’s run $23 – $25 and children 12 and under run $8.50 – $10. Brick’s Restaurant is open from 7:30am – 10:30am, and 5:00pm to 9:00pm. It’ has a relaxed family atmosphere and reservations are not required. If you’re lucky, you may even run into a fun LEGO character while you’re there!
