Beer! and Barbeque!

What could be better? We sat outside as we had a puppy with us. The day was perfect - sunny and warm. This was one of the first warm days of spring, so there were lots of people to watch. We tried the Scottish ale and the IPA - both good choices with our meals. We tried the pork bbq... read more

We stumbled upon this place a few weeks before when researching for our trip, and I'm glad we did. The food there was absolutely amazing, it was perfect for lunch. Neither my sister and I drink beer, but I did see at the table next to us that they got the sampler, which is literally small glasses of different types... More

The menu had a wide selection of ordinary & local items. Being adventuresome, I had the fried green tomato sandwich with cole slaw. My hubby had the pulled chicken sandwich. We loved our choices. The beer selection, fantastic. Also, the wait staff was top notch.

This weekend we decided to bring our children in with... More

Met friends for drinks while waiting for our table. Place was packed with friendly people, singles, couples & families. Even a bunch of guys in kilts who had participated in the Highland Games! Great bartender who entertained all of us, but especially some young sisters and their family, with his skill at balancing up to 21 glasses on his chin!... More

My nephew got married here and had the reception on the 3rd floor. The size of the room was perfect for the small wedding venue. The food was very good (chicken florentine, prime rib, salad, beans, etc). I was very impressed! The atmosphere was very fun!

My wife and I go here just about every time that we go downtown. Their menu is quite extensive, but we always get the pulled chicken nachos. They are some of the best nachos that we have ever had anywhere. The various beers that they make are superb and they have over 200 bourbons to choose from. What makes this... More

Great lunch! Huge menu. My husband loved the pulled pork. I had a salad with candied walnuts and apples. Very good. Loved the jalapeño hummus with pita points. Great beer too!
