I didn't expect much from Brick Road Pizza Co., I was just starving after kayaking for 3 hours and needed some carbs. I just wanted some sub par pizza. The story: Arrived around 7:30 with 4 friends and we sat and ordered. Funny chit chat turned to outrage as the minutes ticked by. There were about 3-4 tables, mine included, so I wouldn't say they were busy. After about 45 minutes of waiting the waitress told us they had been getting a lot of carry out orders and that the chefs were working as fast as possible. Finally, we got our appetizers: cheese bread sticks. They tasted great! But when we asked for some ranch we were told it was 50 cents. We love ranch so we said ok. (Ranch tally: 1) Minutes turned to tens of minutes. Our waters were emptied and refilled several time when our waitress came back empty handed once more. "What time do you expect our pizza?" I pondered politely. "About 5 minutes!" She answered. 5 minutes ticked by. Then ten. My stomach started to plan how it could digest the half-used napkin on my lap. During my wait time, my friends and I decided to use the bathroom. 2 ladies ventured to the bathroom, only two would get to use a ladies because there are only 2 bathrooms for ladies and one was in use. After waiting for what seemed like an entire viewing of AVATAR (copyright James Cameron), one of my lady friends got in. Finally, my friend and I said "screw gender norms" and used the men's (it was a private bathroom, don't fret). When we emerged, our hands nice and clean, a waitress gave us a horrified look and made a comment about our faux-paux. Had I not been malnourished, I would have given her my prepared speech about the damage of gender norm (which is basically code for me BSing). At long last, my pizza arrived! Among my group, there were two pizzas and some bread sticks. (the bread sticks actually came out several minutes after the pizza but who's counting minutes? Oh, I was) We asked for one (1) ranch for the pizza and one (1) ranch for the bread sticks. They were brought out shortly after, bringing our ranch count to three (3). Triumphantly, I took a fist full of pizza off of the tray. But the Pizza Gods weren't done torturing me yet. The pizza, which I assume was hastily removed from the oven and delivered to me, was scalding hot. My hunger, which at this point had made me appreciate my white, American privilege, forced my hand to deliver the pizza into my mouth, where my tiny, delicate taste buds were assaulted with practically boiling tomato sauce. What's worse is that I freaking hate pepperoni and the pizza I was devouring was covered in it (a compromise I had made with my mates so we could all share a pizza). I began chugging my water, which was only ice because it was rarely kept full. I was miserable. By the time I was "finished" eating (finished is in quotations because I wasn't full, just covered in tomato sauce and tired of wrestling with poorly-sliced pizza), my plate was covered with the evidence for the first-ever pizza homicide. It wasn't pretty. When our waitress finally brought the bill, she apologized again for the ridiculous wait and said they had new chefs in the back. I THOUGHT THEY HAD BEEN OVERCOME WITH PHONE ORDERS? Something didn't smell right, and it wasn't my pizza-blood-covered fingers. When going over the bill, we saw that we had been charged $2.00 for ranch. TWO (2) USD for RANCH. and if you remember, we only received/asked for 3. AN EXTRA 50 CENTS FOR RANCH WE WOULD NEVER CONSUME. Overcome with emotions, we paid our bill and left. I will probably never return to Brick Road Pizza Company-- not because of this experience, just because I'm not from Grand Rapids. Their pizza just wasn't special enough to warrant a return visit. My friends and I got some good laughs out of this trip, so there are always silver linings, kids. (copyright David O. Russell) total wait time: 1 hour, 30 minutes (Don't let this deter you. I'm sure they aren't always slammed with phone orders on the same night they have new chefs)

Just tried to order a pizza with two changes and the owner gave me the hardest time. I have never been treated so poor by any business! Unbelievable.

While the product is great, this is the second time we've ordered ahead only to find out that our order hasn't even been started when we arrive. What makes it pretty frustrating is the place is not that busy right now either.

I love their vegan options. Great vegan pizzas. Awesome vegan sandwiches. I order take out a lot from them. But I don't see why they charge people for condiments when they are already paying $11 for a sandwich. This sort of penny pinching takes away from an otherwise good dining experience.

Went for Sunday brunch, got some coffee and went to look at the grub. It was all crusty and old. Also...oddly there was sausage gravy but nothing to put it on. Since we ordered the coffee we stayed and drank. Coffee was good. The fire alarm went off though. Waitress advised there was no fire (doesn't seem safe) but the alarm didn't turn off so we split and headed to wolfgangs. Menu didn't even have the prices for the coffee was so we had to guess. Sounds like the pizza is excellent so might try again and modify my post, but never again for brunch.
