Nice place

We were first seated in the upper area of the dining room. Apparently that's where the kitchen is too. There was a terrible smell of smoke from what I guess is the grill and since my daughter has asthma, we asked to be moved to the lower level which was much better. The place is rustic with lots... read more

Went for dinner on a weeknight, restaurant has great ambiance with brewery concept feel - perfect if you're avoiding the whole chicken dinner gluttony thing. Our server was completely detached, wouldn't make eye contact, spoke like a robot - weird, because I had had great service there before. Food was delicious and prices fine for what you get - fun...

I went here with a group of 10 people. The location is beautiful. We arranged for a brewery tour which was not impressive. We could hardly hear the tour-guide. Aside from that, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Crab cakes, burgers, rubens, soup- everything was excellent. They have quite a few craft beers they brew in house... More

The brew pub is a fantastic spot for a simple bowl of soup, to a burger to the ribs. Fantastic, service and food. Must try one of their great beers.

A bit noisy, but the food is good and the beer is great. Close to all lodging in town, within walking distance.

Went to the Brewery on a Groupon. The timing didn't quite work out for a tour - maybe next time - but we did have a very good meal. The pizza and the nachos are huge. Our Groupon included a case of beer so we "had to" sample the different beers to pick 1. They are $2 for a 4... More

We went here for dinner. This place is great! The menu is varied with something for everyone. The portions were very good and the prices were fair. We liked being about to order a flight that offers all the selections on tap. There is a wine flight, too. They have a kids menu and lots of families were there. The... More
