The polished Brick House Tavern + Tap, a sports bar that feels like a family version of Hooter's, has opened a location in Fort Worth, on 6300 North Freeway near I-35 at Fossil Creek. This is the second location in North Texas; the original opened in Plano in 2011.

It's the eighth location in Texas. There are also branches in Austin, Houston, Galveston and San Antonio.

 Brick House claims to feature a chef-inspired menu, craft beers and hand-crafted cocktails. Whenever the hand comes in, you know it's good.

Brick House claims to feature a seasonal, chef-inspired menu; craft beers; and hand-crafted cocktails. Whenever the hand comes in, you know it's good.

This branch has 8,600 square feet and more than 30 flat-screen TVs that can be viewed from recliners, a seat at the bar or a communal table for the whole party.

According to a press release, the restaurant is more than a tavern, serving appetizers, entréees and daily specials "handcrafted in its scratch kitchen." Again with the handcrafted, although this time it does not have a hyphen between the "hand" and the "crafted." Which sounds better, handcrafted or hand-crafted?

Featured on the fall menu are drunken pork meatballs made of "homemade" (not hand-crafted?) ground pork, bacon, buttermilk, Tabasco with whiskey BBQ glaze, jalapeño bacon cornbread and fried shallots. A weekend brunch menu includes Southern fried chicken Benedict, Grand Marnier French toast and banana bacon waffles.

General manager Daniel Rojas is quoted as saying that the experience exceeds typical sports bars and grills. "Our guests will get a top-notch, chef-inspired menu with great food made from scratch, hand-crafted cocktails [and] a wide variety of craft beers."
