Jackie had a vision to have a place where everyone felt at home. She loves people and loves having fun with her friends. So the search began for just the right location to open Jackie’s Brickhouse. In September of 2010, Jackie found the perfect place. She started with the main dining area and completely overhauled the kitchen.

With help from her friend and now general manager John Barrera, they created what you see today. Everyone loves a good game, so Jackie and friend Steve designed and added a gameroom located in the back of the restaurant with pool tables, golden tee golf, darts and shuffle board. It was such a success, they took over the rest of the building expanding seating, games and another full bar. Now Jackie’s is something for everyone, from relaxing outside under the palapa with friends, or a friendly game of shuffle board. Maybe you want to dance or have a birthday party. Whatever fits your mood, Jackie’s has it. Jackie welcomes you to her place, so eat, drink, play some games and be happy.

Story by Adam Donaghey

Originally conceived as a small pizza pub, Jackie's Brickhouse opened shop in the same building as Heads N' Tails. When Heads N' Tails decided to close its doors, the Brickhouse took the plunge and acquired the entire building. Though a risky move, in just seven months Jackie's Brickhouse has revamped the entire property, creating a full service restaurant, sports bar and entertainment facility, with nightly live music, a variety of pub games and a fun, family-friendly environment.

"I am so proud of my staff," proclaimed local owner Jackie Powell. "Not only have we become a team, but we are more of a family here. Most of them call me mama."

A true cinderella story, Jackie's Brickhouse has overcome many pitfalls in its quest to become what it is today. In order to bring the restaurant up to health code the kitchen needed serious work, and there was difficulty obtaining a liquor license; but with the support of the community and its loyal staff, the Brickhouse maintained an optimistic attitude and overcame all of its obstacles. Now the crowds of people grow larger every day, proving that the Brickhouse is not only the new restaurant on the block, but a Kemah institution focused on constant improvement in order to guarantee customer satisfaction.

The menu at the Brickhouse offers a mixture of American style pub grub, seafood, pastas, steaks and burgers. With lots to choose from, the Brickhouse is a safe bet to please everyone in your party – picky eaters and children included. Daily lunch specials with a focus on filling, hot meals including pork chops, pot roast and fried catfish, fulfill the heartiest appetite.

For dinner, pastas and burgers have been a hit with selections like the New Orleans Pasta (fettucini tossed with shrimp, crawfish (Seasonal), andouille sausage, topped with a creamy Cajun sauce) and the Southwest Burger (topped with a fried egg, white cheddar, bacon and avocado salsa verde).

With a seating capacity of roughly 530, it's no wonder there's no shortage of activities at the Brickhouse. Nightly live music features live bands Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and palapa music all day Saturday and Sunday. With a variety of live music for all ages, the whole family can join in on the fun. Some of the acts slated for April include Hamilton Loomis, the Mambo Jazz Kings, Madigan, Randy Marshall and KAOS.

More than two-dozen flat screens are scattered throughout the facility, broadcasting all the major sporting events; plus a large projection screen in the new addition, enabling a quieter live music experience. The addition is also available to book private parties, and look out for a VIP balcony coming soon. When you host your event, be sure to purchase a faux brick and personalize it. The Brickhouse will mount it on the wall with other personalized bricks from patrons, special guests and celebrities.

Other events you'll find at the Brickhouse include bike rallies, autograph signings, model searches, and golf cart runs like the upcoming Golf Carts of Texas 3rd Annual Poker Run on April 30 (details at www.golfcartsoftexas.com). If you're worried about parking, never fear, valet parking is here!

The high energy and enthusiasm of the staff at Jackie's Brickhouse will ensure a worthwhile experience for every occasion. With so many different events and activities, you'll want to keep coming back.
