Good pub food and they make their own beer

Have been here several times and nothing to complain about. The wait is always long and they don't take reservations. Go early on week-ends.

Used to visit Turtle on Tuesdays for their beer special, now the $2.50 price has gone to $4.00. Talk about a giant price hike! Won't be going here anytime soon.

Great pizza, calzones and brew. Been coming here for 13 years! The atmosphere is nice and open. Friendly staff, clean and inviting. All the pizzas have delicious, fresh ingredients and specialty toppings like pinon, variety of cheese. Highly recommended.

Very good food, a wide selection of in house and local brews and very friendly staff in a comfortable casual environment, affordable menu too! a short wait (10 min) for lunch which seemed unusual mid week but certainly not inconvenient as they have a good sized waiting area.

Met a couple of friends here for dinner and drinks. The waitress was very helpful when recommending what types of beers we may like and even offered samples. Food was also very tasty!
