My husband and I have been to this restaurant many times and like to share about the huge beer menu, pup-friendly beer garden on Monday's, cozy fire-place to eat around in the winter.

We had a big birthday party there with a lot of people coming and going. Our waiter, Hop, did a great job taking care of us. There were a lot of different people coming by the table to pick up dirty dishes, etc. The food was great. It has a nice atmosphere and was very clean. We had several appetizers,... More

Perfect place with the exception of all the flies while sitting on the outside patio. Overall ambiance is good, large bar and tons of room. The menu is diverse, from salads, to pizza. It's a place for beer lovers, with dozens of choices. From IPA's today local brews. I myself, enjoyed a pomegranate sangria and also a sparkling wine, delicious.... More

Great menu, good food, wonderful outside patio for warm summer nights. Inside is noisy but very comfortable. Awesome Friday fish fry. Prices are a little high but probably worth it.

We go there ofter with friends. They have different beers on tap & offer samples. The menu has a lot of their own creations that are interesting. There is outside seating weather permitting with heaters. The inside seating can handle parties of 10-12. The staff is friendly and not a lot of turnover so you may see the same smiles.

This restaurant has been around for a long time. I've been here on and off for a long time as well. Today my husband and I decided to have lunch on the patio and we couldn't have asked for a more pleasant time. The patio is fenced in and very pretty. There are lots of options as to seating and...

Not Greek despite the name. A really great looking bar and a fantastic outdoor eating environment however the regular dining room is a bit drab and they also have put tables in some depressing alcoves. I've been many times and am very happy with the beer selection, and by sticking to the old standbys: burgers, fish and chips, etc, you'll... More

I had a wonderful pull pork sandwich and also shared some brochette with the table. Both were great. Great beer menu they must have 100 beers. However, my husband is a wine lover and the wine menu left lots to be desired. I was surprised as they had a very nicely stocked bar.
