With so much craft beer on the market these days, beer drinkers have many options. I found all five of the brews that I tried at this brew pub to be mediocre to flat out lack luster. Nice bartenders, but that's the highlight. Go elsewhere.

My mom RAVED about the shrimp and grits from when she visited 2 years ago; I wasn't as blown away. Overall it was your run of the mill bar food with a good beer selection. It was fine for a quick lunch, but I wasn't blown away by anything.

I love that when you have to put your name done on the waiting list they text you when your table is ready. We ended up sitting at the bar Saturday night and all the bartenders were great. We love the beer and my husband loved the whiskey the bartender said was good. We had the streak - the flavor... More

Just had an awesome experience on Front Street..!! 'Syndey' was very knowledgable and informative about the current brews in house. The Tiny Tim Christmas mid-year prerelease is most delectable to the palette.. I will be back.!!!
