The old girl and I needed a brake for shopping. This is the place for a quick beer or in our case beers. They have a good lunch and the place was full. Had no dislikes.

Love the beer selection with plenty of craft brews to select from. Service was very good. Food was ok with a very limited selection. Don't expect a huge plate of fries.

This place is cool, and the service is personable. Enjoy our visit every time. If you plan to read any business materials, the lighting maybe a bit low, but it would be great for after hours or couples.

I was traveling on business from Minneapolis and had heard about JL Beers from a co-worker. I stopped in for lunch and ordered the JL Burger with fresh cut fries. The burger had that "it" taste. It was awesome! The beef tasted like it came from secret cattle living a life of luxury somewhere in the Kobe region of Japan.... More

Enjoyed the good burgers and incredible selection of beers. Place is small. Staff are efficient. Food is very reasonable. Beers are a little expensive. Overall the experience was good. Will return again!

If you are looking for an old fashioned cheeseburger like you would get at an old dinner, this is the place. It is the best cheeseburger I've had in a long time. Fries are good too. Huge beer selection. Not a ton of seating.

We took a chance for lunch and were pleased that we did. Small place with lots of people and noise but not too noisy to have a conversation. Small food menu consisting of burgers, chips and fries. Home made chips were great. Burgers were great as well. No vegetarian burger on the menu but they whipped up a modified burger... More

Great custom burgers, chip, fries and beer. Best tap selection in town. Fast service. Handsome and pretty staff. Why wouldn't you have lunch here every day you're visiting? Plus you can take out growlers of your favourite craft beer.

This is a great place to stop for great beer and tasty burgers! Our waitress was friendly and very helpful when we were choosing from the wide variety of beer on tap. It is a small restaurant and it can get loud when it's busy, but we really enjoyed this place and we would definitely return!

Hands down, the best burger you'll ever have and about 50 different beers to choose from. The fries are pretty tasty too! Do yourself a favor and eat here as soon as possible.
