My fiancée and I stopped in during Restaurant Week to take advantage of some gift certificates I received over the holidays. CBC had a good selection of beers, in both "guest brew" and their own label. We opted to try all of the Restaurant Week fare other than the Pecan-Crusted Chicken. We had as appetizers: Pimento Cheese Dip and the... More

Appetizer-Calamari was good, Wood-Fired Pizzas - Margherita...love it and as for the Sandwiches Blackened Tilapia & Beer Braised Beef was delicious...what else? we've been there like 5 times since we moved in here. Pricing- we ordered calamari (happy hour) fish sandwich and 2 glass of wine we spend $33.28 tax included.

We celebrated our daughter's birthday here and had a great time. We all enjoyed our dinners and drinks. The environment was pleasant and the wait staff efficient.

Went here with a group of six for dinner on a Monday. Got seated right away. A bit of confusion with the drink orders. Lots of great local (on-site) beers to pick from. Had a burger, very meh. Pick something else off the menu for chow.

Greetings ! Sat at the bar, and had great service. Very helpful with suggestions. Enjoyed a stout, which will please those who favor coffee notes, but was not quite the right fit to pair during the meal. I suggest it for after dinner due to the strong coffee trait. Scotch ale - fantastic to pair with my son's beef sandwich.... More

We are just finishing up our meal. My husband loved his salmon. My mother in-law liked her pecan crusted chicken. My chicken salad was way overdressed, and the chicken on top was undercooked. I did not complain. But neither did my server ask why I left all the chicken on the plate. Probably would not visit again.

We dined here as a family, which included one gluten-free child. Our waitress was extremely accommodating concerning the gluten-free requests. Food was delicious and portions were just right. For the one beer drinker in the group, the IPA was a total winner! One criticism: we arrived early for a 6 pm reservation and were told our table would not be... More

My brother has his rehearsal dinner here on a Friday night. The restaurant was able to comfortably fit our party of 18 in their covered outdoor patio. The night was a little chilly, but they had area heaters fired up to keep us warm. The dinner was enjoyable, we had a set 3 course meal and all were tasty -... More

My smart phone Waze navigator got me here just fine. The atmosphere is inviting Had the Orange Glazed Salmon - "6 oz grilled hand-cut filet lightly brushed with an orange honey glaze. Served with sticky rice, stir-fried vegetables and soy drizzle". This was paired with Skeleton Red IPA from 4 String Brewing (a guest brew). The meal featured a large... More

My daughter and I ate here and had fantastic individual pizzas and the best IPA ale in town (I had that, not my daughter). Service was great and the location is not far from downtown hotels!
