It was very popular on a Monday evening but we were seated quickly and enjoyed a good beer with dinner.

The depth and breadth of the beer variety here was amazing. We enjoyed so many of their brews that it was hard to pick a favorite. We also had some great conversation with some other patrons that makes beer drinking all that much more enjoyable.

Visited during a day of enjoying Avenue of the Giants. Great place for beer and food. Had the berry beer and the blonde. Both delicious. My friend and I split several appetizers. Everything was great but especially the oysters! Best oysters I've ever had. The chef picks them himself and serves them to you. Garlic butter and no salt. Loved... More

This place is a lot of fun! Usually pretty busy, especially after work = 5pm. A favorite watering hole for the locals. Also four fairly large motels and a large RV campground nearby, so lots of business! If you don't want a party atmosphere I'd recommend going for lunch. GREAT organic beer! I LOVE the porter and the amber ale.... More

Got food to go, as it did seem very very busy inside the establishment. We did see families coming and going, but a bit too busy for us. We had fish and chips, chicken strips and chips, it was hot, flavorful and excellent!

I am not a beer drinker, so I can only rate the food and atmosphere. We haven't eaten there in several years because we found the food to be only so-so. I checked the February 2014 because I couldn't pick an earlier date. There are picnic tables outside. The inside seems to be mostly large tables and remind me more... More

Avoid. The food was appaling. I ordered from the dinner specials list. " Chicken & Dumplings." It was not edible. I could not cut the chicken slab with a knife, and chewing it was out of the question, it was like trying to eat a piece of a tire. I had to spit it into my napkin. The glop it... More

First thing that goes without saying is the beer menu is stellar. Our bartender/waiter was great, he even aerated the wine my wife ordered..the menu had a decent amount or Gluten Free items and the burger (Cajun) was cooked to order and fabulous..we will definitely be back!!
