Good hangout, nice location

My daughter and I met a friend there for dinner. The restaurant had a nice location and was lively. Sitting outside was nice although it was hot outside. Great bear selection. I loved the Blueberry wheat beer. Dinner was pretty good. I ordered the short ribs which were pretty tasty. I just wish... read more

There is something quite exciting about a restaurant, on a university campus, that has to be accessed by an elevator. We were expecting it to be an expensive place. However, food, wine, and beer all were moderately priced. Having the brewing vats to view as well as outdoor seating makes for an interesting setting. Our party of 4 adults and... More

A perfect blend of southern eats and locally brewed beer makes this a great place to dine. There is a balcony overlooking Franklin street for those who prefer the outdoors.

Too much emphasis on beverage and not enough on food. Service is really good, though; and the view isn't bad.

Enjoyed the location of this restaurant and the food was good also. The staff was attentive. We went in the afternoon so they weren't very busy.

Nothing but good things to say about this fun restaurant specializing in their own local beers. Loved the blueberry beer cocktail to start with homemade chips & french onion dip. Steaks, fried chicken & pita pizzas were delicious too.

Been forever since I visited this beer, bar, light food place. Food is nice, I liked the Mediterranean flat-bread, my buddy liked the chicken dish as well. If you like craft beer, you will be in beer heaven. They even have a sample deal with 8 or so small portion of the beer they make there. If you want Bud... More

I've had dinner here three times and every time has been the same experience. The dining room can get pretty crowded, kind of noisy. The service is good, but all three times the food takes a while and the server didn't check often. The food is excellent. I haven't had anything I didn't like, save for this one tuna app.... More

Despite having a reservation we were given an awful table. Hope you like the two tables next to you because you are sharing your dining experience with them. The tables were nearly touching and their patrons could not stand up without touching our table. The tenderloin was ordered medium rare served medium. Bland otherwise. My wife's fried chicken was good.... More

I came here in mid afternoon between lunch and dinner when they were serving a limited menu but the pulled porky flatbread was delicious. I had the IPA which was also very good. There's a nice deck outside overlooking Franklin street but I retreated to the cool interior on a hot humid day. Very attractive!
