Stopped in on a whim...on Valentine's Day afternoon. Was great from start to finish. Terrific waitress gave us suggestions that were spot on. 5 oz beer flight for $9...unheard of! Food was presented nicely, tasted phenomenal. Hate to give this place 5 stars and drive more people there, but gotta do it.

Great bar food. Serves burgers etc... on pretzel buns which is great. Beer selection is good and not complicated. My experience is all in regard to lunch meals.

If you like cheeseburgers, go HERE and try the signature burger with a fried egg on top. This is probably not good if you are watching your cholesterol, but I think it is worth the risk just once! Tremendous staff who are friendly and outgoing. The selection of beers is impressive and they are served bone-chilling cold. Very nice place... More

If you're looking for a burger and a beer, this place is hard to beat. Lots of burger choices - I had the Campfire Burger (cheese, BBQ and onion straws) with a side of onion straws and a flight of tap beers. The beer flight is a good way to try out three different beers. I love the onion straws... More

We are not drinkers but we decided to stop in this restaurant because the menu sounded good. I had a salad with one of the best dressings I've ever had. I believe our server called it a cucumber dressing. My husband had a "stuffed" burger, stuffed with bleu cheese, bacon, and peppers. I tasted it and it was fabulous. I... More

Stopped here while visiting during a town fair. They had a special on Bloody Marys so I had to have one. They are made to your taste and very good. I ordered filet sliders on pretzel rolls. Problem is I couldn't eat them they were so tough. I doubt if it was filet. I could hardly wrestle a bite out... More

This place is a must-go if you like to explore all kinds of beers, ciders and ales. Great burgers and the choice of toppings are unique and quite good. The craft beer selection numbers over 100 and they change often.
