A prime location in downtown Eustis is once again a bustling eatery. The new Brick and Barrel Kitchen opened in the former space of Tillie’s Tavern and dishes out traditional American fare in a casual, contemporary setting. The Magnolia Street restaurant is the company’s second location -- the first is in downtown Leesburg.
The limited menu features three hand-cut steaks including a 14-ounce delmonico ($36), f6-ounce filet mignon ($34) and ten-ounce New York strip ($32). Fish lovers can opt for the honey bourbon salmon ($22), grilled red snapper ($28) or blackened mahi ($22). The other entrees are the chicken and shrimp alfredo ($19), mushroom chicken ($18) and 8-ounce pork chops ($25).
The rest of the menu features American standards, including various burgers ($12-$14), traditional sandwiches ($12-$16) and a few flatbreads and entree salads -- Caesar, wedge or gorgonzola ($8-$14).
The menu also offers options for vegans including a plant-based burger ($15) and stuffed mushroom appetizer ($11).
The spacious bar features a handful of beers on tap, as well as wine, bottled beer and craft cocktails. Guests can enjoy happy hour daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. with $3 well drinks, house wines, and domestic draft beers. Fridays and Saturdays feature live music from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
The Brick and Barrel Kitchen is located at 31 E. Magnolia Avenue in downtown Eustis.
