Brion's Grille

College Scene, Bar

Editorial Review

Brion's all-afternoon happy hours and nightly specials make it convenient for students and faculty at George Mason University, so its location – across Braddock Road from campus and next to the University Mall movie theater – is icing on the cake.

Brion's brightly-lit, white-tiled atmosphere is more restaurant than bar, and it's as good a place to have a beer as grab a burger.There's a large bar area, cheap drinks, and framed Mason basketball jerseys on the wall. The bar is large, but the huge menu, heavy on sandwiches, salads and cuts of meat, makes Brion's a better bet for parents and visitors.
