Nice place

Had a couple of beers and dinners here. Love the BBQ nachos. The beer is good and they have a large selection. Staff is friendly and good. Parking is a little bit of an issue. Parking behind is usually filled and the front only allows for one hour parking.

We had decided to stop and have a beer as a break between stores and this happened to be right between our stops. We had been coming here on and off for the last few years and when we originally started coming here, there was barely a kitchen to speak of. We sat at the bar and our server Kaitlyn,... More

Took my coworkers for lunch here. Waited at the door for a couple of minutes before the greeter noticed us. Placed orders right after we sat down. Waited over 40 minutes for our food! Way too long for a couple of burgers. The staff here seems to be enjoying their own company, different people casually coming and leaving the kitchen.... More

The Black Lotus has a great selection of beers . They craft quite a lot of their own and carry a significant amount of guest craft brews. Pretty good made from scratch food as well. The wait staff is always friendly and they know their beers very well .

Have been to many breweries being a beer lover , but this is by far my favorite one. Love their selection of beers and I happen to frequently visit the place. Would recommend beer lovers in the area to give it a try. Great place , awesome folks, amazing ambience :-)

Rude waitresses and beer that tastes, just... Off. Maybe I'm just a traditional Bud Light sort of gal, but I'll stick to a six pack in my kitchen. Their beer wasn't quite worth the half-mile walk/drive up the road.

Tried Black Lotus twice and haven't had much luck. The bartender was clearly overwhelmed and had trouble keeping up. The beer cheese soup was really good, but the burger was just average.

We were staying a mile away in Troy on Stephenson Highway. The Black Lotus is located on the corner of North Main and 14 mile. Signage is hard to make out. We drove past it 3 times before we spotted it. This is an excellent brewpub that also features locally made spirits. We stuck with Vodka from Valentine Distilling down... More
