Stopped in for dinner and beer on a Saturday night and were pleasantly surprised. I got the Shiner burger and my partner got the Boss Hog sandwich. My burger was by far the best burger I've had in a long time, and my partner loved his sandwich. I got the Florida Shandy beer, which was pretty tasty, and my partner... More

Even if you aren’t in the mood to sip beers with plenty of intriguing names, Black Lotus Brewing Co. is a great place to stop in for lunch. We tried tortilla soup, turkey chili, shoestring (yes, really thin ones) potatoes and a rueben sandwich. The menu is diverse so it was a bit tough to decide what to select. Burgers... More

We were happy to find this place near our hotel - large selection of beers (mostly in-house brews, few other local guest ones too), really friendly bartender that was quite welcoming. Had a decent dry cider, and a really good saison. Trivial pursuit boxes on the bar kept us entertained until the food arrived. Food-wise we shared the fried pickle... More

From the outside this looks like a great place. once going in a different story comes to light. During the light of day this place is tired and could be cleaner. The padding in the chairs gave it up years ago and everything just looks wore out; not in a good way, but like everything was bought very very used.

We love this place! We head there with friends every Tuesday night not just for the great craft-brewed beers and locally distilled liquors and good food (fish and chips is great!). But because on Tuesday nights, local group, Zap Toro, plays.They are fantastic! Several of the guys play with internationally known talent when they're not sitting in at the Lotus.... More

My daughter and I stopped in for lunch while wedding venue shopping. We sat outside and were served immediately. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. We ordered a make your own burger and shared it, as it was large enough. The burger was so good we didn't even use ketchup and mustard- normally unheard of! House chips lacked in... More

I've gone here in the past, but was never impressed, however, they now offer a delicious, full menu (both regular and vegetarian cuisine) and a new Brewmaster took over, so now this place is great! If you are a beer snob and are familiar with Kuhnhenn, you'll be happy to know that Black Lotus has acquired one of their brewmasters... More

Came here after a Tiger game. Was here a few years ago for lunch and remembered it as being pretty good. After a loss to the Orioles in high heat and humidity, this was a welcome experience! I had the lotus burger and it was excellent, my sweetie had the wasabi salmon wrap and loved it. My mother and nephew... More
