We stopped in twice last week for dinner. First things first, the IPA and the Pale Ale are both excellent beers. As a brewery, the place is great. Now on to the food. Are kids always like the place and they do a great job to accommodate large families like ours. We had the potato skins both nights and they... More

Unbelievable - they have loads of different beer varieties on offer. Good and decent food. Free refill on soft drinks and an ok variation of white wine to choose from. Very friendly staff.

My wife and I were looking for a light lunch after driving more than three hours through the busy LA freeways. This place was perfect. We had the pulled pork nachos and they were delicious. I ordered one of their craft beers, but they were out, thus the reason for four stars instead of five. But I did get another... More

If you like micro brews, this is the place for you, all brewed in house (of course). Good food as well, had habanero chicken wings and teriyaki steak bites. We will definitely be back!

Loved their beer. I cannot remember which one we had but it was a seasonal beer...Also enjoyed our meal. Service was good, very prompt and very helpful when making beer selection. The friends I went to lunch with also enjoyed their meals. One had a burger, the other had a wrap.

It was a late Thursday night. We had already tried a couple of places to get food, but we were not successful. A sign on the front door read "10pm happy hour", so a friend & I went in. From the start, we felt unwelcomed. When we asked what was on the late night happy hour, we were given a... More

This place was buzzing when we arrived, but we did not have to wait too long for a table. Great variety on the menu. Beef Stroganoff was extremely tasty, but all of our group had something different from Burgers to the Stroganoff and everyone enjoyed it. Service was quick and friendly, it was one of the groups birthdays and a... More

Stopped in for lunch the other day and had a great burger and pizza. The blond beer is also very tasty. Service was friendly and attentive as well. The place could use a bit of a cleaning, especially the restrooms, which lost it a star in my review.
