Mediocre...

This was my second visit. Wasn't too impressed by the first visit but it was acceptable. This visit was less spectacular! Visited on St. Patrick's day; beer was warm and almost flat. Mashed potatoes were way over-seasoned. Rest of the meal was ok at best. Service is lacking but not rude. Employees... read more

After the Texas @ KU Men's Basketball game, they handled a LARGE rush ofr sports fans very well. While the hostess seemed intent on quoting an hour to hour and a half to us, we were determined to eat with our group of 8. We were seated in less than an hour and enjoyed the time with our family and... More

Horrible, horrible service. Saw our waitress like two times/ no silverware/ had to ask multiple times for it. Appetizers and food cr out at same time- no apologies. Do not bring a large party here if you want to eat at all. Ordered a house salad- took 50 minutes to get it. Still waiting on silverware.

Pretty meh trip overall... the beer isn't nearly as good as Free State. Much less hop focus. Food was OK, typical bar food. Definitely appealing to the KU bar scene. On the plus side, the servers are universally attractive coeds from the university, so plenty to look at if that's what you're into. :)

Usually brewpubs don't do food quite as well as their beers, but here I was surprised. Our daughter's mac & cheese special was quite tasty, and my flatbread pizza was much better than I had expected. The three beers on offer were OK, with the Irish red the real standout. Very prompt and efficient service in spite of a crowded... More

We have been here a few times and this is a nice change of pace compared to the frantic (but great) scene at Free State. The beer is not as good as FS in part because the selection is much smaller at 23rd, however, they do a nice job on the wheat and IPA. The food is also quite nice,... More

We had the chicken Caesar salad and a pizza. The salad and pizza were very good! The wait staff was very attentive and kept our drinks full. The atmosphere was nice indoors, but we enjoyed the outside patio since it was such a nice day. I would definitely come back to this place!

Visited this restaurant twice over a 3 week span. Once it was busy, other time not so much. Beer is very good - waitress was knowledgeable and helpful with descriptions. Food is good, especially for a brewery. Service was good; food came hot. I had the Cajun Pasta with their hottest spice and would choose it again. Their fried pickles... More

One hour for food service. My Son had a steak there the previous night that was excellent, and upon this visit it was like rubber. The server was really sweet about the delay, but this place may need a restaurant rescue. Nothing special, but huge portions of mediocre food that took forever to arrive.

We eat at 23rd Street frequently. The food is always good and the service is as well. We often bring people here because it's a fun atmosphere and everyone can find something that will satisfy on the menu. Everyone is always surprised by how much food you get. Great value!
