Stopped by for a Friday Lunch date with a friend, (since the Dejango next door wouldn't wait on us since we didn't have a reservation and needed to sit in the bar and received no service, so we left) Glad we decided to eat next door instead, the Special on Friday at lunch is Fried Chicken and Waffles, they were...

This place was our 2nd stop of the night. It was farther away from the main downtown area and it was not extremely busy. The Staff was very friendly with recommendations and tastes of their local beers. However, it did feel a little slow going as they didn't have many TVs to watch sports games. The restaurant looked like a... More

Seriously, for fifteen....a ten inch thin crust with minimal amounts of meat...unreal. Recently added jalapeño their beer cheese soup.....VERY prevalent. Unreal spicey. Burgers are ok... But any of the add ons are not worth the additional price...very chincy on any toppings. Service wa extremely slow.

What a phenomenal historic building and great place to gather for drinks! I am not a beer drinker, but the india pale ale was fantastic. However, I highly recommend the spicy bloody mary! One of the best ever! While I do not know beer, I do know Bloody Mary's. Try theirs, worth the trip!

Fun place. Live music (Saturday night). Snack food was ok. I was mostly there for the beers. Nice. Better than mass market beers, but kind of ... uninspired. Sorry.

A bit overpriced, enjoyed the beer. The food was too greasy and over battered. Good location, near the hotel we stayed in. Had fish and chips but the fish had too much batter.

Great location. Classic brew pub with very good proprietary selections, plus wines and spirits. Food was average, though. Pool tables and comfortable seating, plus central location make it worth a stop, but not a detour.

Food here was really good with friendly fast service. Prices were reasonable. My friend and I were both impressed. I'd definitely eat here again if I were in the area!

My husband got the fish and fries. The coating on the fish was greasy and limp, not crisp. I ordered pizza and the toppings were quite sparse, even though I had added an extra topping. The servings were quite generous - I had to take home leftovers. They are a little pricey. 4 of use at, including onion rings (large... More
