Quality food & excellent beer.

Quality food and excellent beer selection, although two drafts were not available. Friendly waitstaff and nice outdoor patio areas. Wished it were open later on weekdays.

This place has a great beer selection. The ambience and food are just AVERAGE. There was a smell of mop water which was annoying. Due to the great beer selection this place gets three stars.

This is the second time we have been there. The atmosphere is great and the beer selection is tremendous. I ordered a Mexican burger and my wife got a fish dinner. Both were just ok. There was more bread than burger. It was a tasty sandwich it it won't show up on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. They could be a... More

We all ordered burger and beers. I thought mine was fine but nothing special. My two friends did not care for their burgers. The view from outside top deck was nice.

Good burgers - good selection of types (i.e. bacon/bleu) or you can make your own. Other options, too, but we came for the burgers. House chips are good; dip is even better. Onion rings are good - a little salty and bready, but the beer batter type. What's more impressive are the selections of draft beers, especially local craft beers....and... More

We've eaten here before. This time we tried the roof top area. We heard the hostess tell a couple ahead of us a 45 minute wait for the roof. This was 6PM on a Tuesday. When it was our turn a different hostess said we couldn't make a reservation but it would only be a fifteen minute wait and they... More

The burgers here are amazing. The quality of beef and selection of toppings is fun for the whole family. The onion rings are very impressive to look at, but the breading was a little thick for my taste. Could've just been the day we were there. The fries were great and the buffalo chicken dip was excellent. We ate out... More

We enjoyed lunch on the roof. There are wonderful options for build your own burgers. The service was attentive and the food very good.
