About the Building
A saloon, chophouse, and general store all occupied this site before a fire occurred in 1912. After the devastating fire, this building was constructed out of brick by the widow of W.H. Walton, a prominent local businessman and politician. The building cost was $27,000; quite a large sum in those times.
In 1915, Berzel's Bakery and Confectionery took advantage of the prime location, east of the city, and occupied the main floor above Charles Defoe's three-lane bowling alley.
From the 1920s to 1950s, physician's offices and a medical clinic took up residence on the second floor to enhance the core of activity in Downtown Dickinson.
In 1951, Doctors Weir and Weir opened a dental practice upstairs. It was in this era that Service Drug, later known as Service and Gift Store, became a virtual landmark in Dickinson.
About the Owners
Dickinson natives Mike Riesinger and Collin Wehner founded BrickHouse Grille & B2 Lounge in 2008. The two were longtime friends who grew up in Dickinson, attended DHS, and then moved away to pursue education and careers.
Mike relocated to Denver to study business in college. He ran multiple profitable companies in Colorado before deciding the food and beverage industry would be a perfect fit for his personality and drive for quality. He then moved back to North Dakota to start his own business.
Collin attended the Culinary program at the Art Institute in San Diego where he graduated with the highest of honors. After that, he worked under a renowned chef for many years and gained valuable experience in cuisine and running a kitchen. He was supervising a high-volume fine dining establishment in an upper-class area when he decided to bring his talents back home to Dickinson.
After hearing about each other's intentions, Mike and Collin decided to combine their skills and open a fine dining restaurant in Downtown Dickinson, and thus, BrickHouse Grille & B2 Lounge was created.
Founded in 2008, BrickHouse Grille & B2 Lounge is a locally owned and operated fine dining restaurant and lounge.
Located in historic Downtown Dickinson, we offer lunch and dinner prepared by a highly trained culinary chef, as well as a wide variety of wine and spirits.
