Our Story


the story so far

“Our Menu is a melting pot of different cultures and techniques, highlighting the flavors of the Chesapeake bay region in new and exciting ways. We strive to source the freshest ingredients possible, and let them star in our dishes”

-Jason Nagers (Owner)

Brick Wood Fired Bistro was established in September 15′ by Jason Nagers (owner/GM), and his family (Ronda & Tim Tracy). They wanted to bring a fun and modern atmosphere to their hometown neighborhood while still maintaining that small-town “ locals” feel. Together they created Brick, a rustic American wood fired inspired restaurant, focusing on fresh local sustainable ingredients, and the beauty of simplicity.

One of the Calvert County dining scene’s most recent additions, Brick Wood Fired Bistro opened its doors in late 2015 and from its stylish, contemporary space in Prince Frederick serves seasonally inspired cuisine focusing on fresh, local ingredients and wood-fired cooking. A range of gourmet burgers and wood-fired pizzas feature on executive chef Troy Horn’s menu, alongside tempting New American entrees like double bone-in pork chop with a maple-bacon butter glaze, creamy polenta and seasonal roasted vegetables. Its libations are equally local with plenty of Maryland produced brews from the likes of Calvert Brewing Company and Jailbreak Brewing served along with handcrafted cocktails featuring herbs from the bistro’s very own rooftop garden.
