Okay food, great beer selection

My wife and I went here for lunch and enjoyed the expansive beer selection. When it came time for food however we were a bit disappointed when we selected a grass fed beef hamburger Cooke medium rare and it came out well done. We were so hungry that we still ate it but let the service staff know... read more

In town on business, sought out a good beer and meal after a long day. Staff were friendly and attentive but not too engaging. Beer menu is impressive, though if like to have seen a more varied or larger selection - not everyone is so sweet on IPAs people. The food was good, had the chickpea quinoa burger. For someone...

Stopped in on a Wed night as part of a pub crawl. Great selection of beer to choose from. Bartender was really helpful in helping us to get exactly what we wanted. We didn't eat anything here but the food looked good. Fun place to be in.

This is our "go to " place in Geneva. It has a nice vibe, consistently good food, great drinks, and a wide selection of beer. We generally start our meal with the cheese curd appetizer. For the main meal we like the burgers, turkey sandwich, or veggie panini. Our favorite dessert (the blueberry/ bacon waffle) was removed from the menu.... More

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
