Good place, beer was ok.

7 monks was a really nice place. Wasn't much seating when we got there but it was a Friday night so they were busy. It was seat yourself and a server was with us quickly, impressive! Beer wasn't my cup of tea, I had an apple one. I'm sure there are other yummy ones though. Good place, but not 5/5... read more

This is a great bar with lots of interesting beers to sample and choose from. There are tvees usually tuned to sports events, and booths for dining and gathering. There is a long bar where many who want to be seen gather. I love their hamburgers, served on homemade buns and topped with caramelized onions. I wish they would expand... More

We took the family including 2 kids (9 and 4) and didn't know what to expect for food at a tap room but this place was a true gastropub delight! The food was amazing! The beer selection was even better. Nice atmosphere and our server Kaitlyn was over the top friendly and accommodating to all of our family's needs! We... More

Stopped in on a Saturday night with my wife who is not normally a beer drinker. Bartender gave great advice and helped her find a beer she really liked and helped me pick out two new beers I hadn't tried. Atmosphere was really cool too, not overly touristy. Did not order food so can't speak to that.

Went here for a meal while in town for a Christmas family vacation. 6 adults and 2 little children were seated quickly and all the staff were great. 30+ beers on tap and many more choices of bottles. The menu is very small, not a lot of choices, but it is a tap room after all. They did have a... More

The food was good, but not very many healthier, lighter options. The meat/cheese board was great! They have an amazing selection of local Michigan beers and even a few wines. There was no steak on our steak salad...but otherwise things were great!

Good small plates and a good variety of uncommon beers. Nice clean and cozy atmosphere. A nice place to meet with friends in a casual and comfortable setting.

Hidden little gem for those who love a large selection of good beers. We did not eat the food so i cannot speak to that. The atmosphere is rather warm and inviting with helpful and friendly waitstaff. A must visit while in TC. Will return and have already recommended to F&F.
