Great craft beer and appetizers

Weren't really hungry-just looking for a place to sit and have a beer and some appetizers. We got there just in time before it got crowded. We had a very attentive waitress-wish I could remember her name but she was great and all appeared very attentive to their tables. We enjoyed some great... read more

Quite a busy restaurant. We stopped in for a quick lunch, which included several different wraps, salads, veggie burger, and humus which was all good, though the humus was really spicy (very unusual recipe). The service was very attentive considering how busy the place was. Was a little to early for me to start sampling beers, but the variety of... More

The first negative was the music in the place was way too loud. I ordered a cheeseburger and it had no taste at all. Even adding some salt didn't help (I didn't even eat half of it). The fries, however, were excellent. My husband ordered the brisket, slaw, and pasta salad. The brisket was wonderful, the slaw was good, but... More

We stopped in for some appetizers and to sample some beers. The apps great great, I love deep fried pickles and their were great. Beers were good, I think they had something for all beer drinkers tastebuds, from a nice lager to IPAs to a nice dark beer. Our bartender was very friendly and happy to let you sip a... More

Great food, very reasonable prices and friendly staff. Even if you don't drink beer, it's a fun place for dinner.

Simple american bar food prepared fast and served quick. Interesting variety of beers but the freezing temperature kills every taste. Good for a quick bite with friendly, decorative waiters but do not expect thrills for your taste buds.

We really enjoyed our meals! Unfortunately we didn't try the beer, so I can't speak to any of them. The portions were huge. I had a delicious blackened shrimp wrap with black eyed pea salad. The burger with grilled cheese buns was juicy and enough for two. I sampled the slightly sweet and spicy barbecue sauce and was tempted to... More

We chose to eat here based on a recommendation. The big draw is the beer but they have a decent selection of pub food. We ordered three appetizers, Loaded Pub Chips, Pub Bites and the Chicken Nachos. All of them were delicious. They also have a beer of the day they offer for take home at a special price.
