Beer okay Food good

Had one of their draft beers and it was kind of watery for a Stout. Goat cheese salad was really good. Had the chicken special and that was good. It was a good stop. Nothing spectacular. But nothing horrible.

Liked the look at thought I would try the place, glad I did. Sat in the bar with the full menu and many choices of draft beers. Bartender Heather provided excellent friendly service, which made the place that much better. Food was very good and am planning on going back for more.

Was here for a business meet and greet social hour. Place is located in a shopping center, lots of parking. Beer and food are good, although, no Guinness or Chimay.

I reviewed this restaurant in 2012 and loved it. My husband and I went tonight and vowed we wouldn't go back again. It seems to me that the chef is either bored with his job, or there is a new owner. We paid top dollar for a meal we didn't want after the first bite. My husband had mussels in... More

Haven't had such a great dinner in a long time. Our server knew the menu inside and out...ingredients,preparation,cooking methods,beer & wine lists, sides, etc. The kitchen presented it beautifully done and as advertised. How damn often does that happen? Too bad we live out of state and were only visiting.

Been visiting The Drafting Room for over 15 years. Really loved it in the old days...excellent beer, great food, wide variety, very dependable. Recently...well last 4-5 years, not so much. Clearly have changed chefs. Beer selection on draft much more limited...and ran out of some of the limited special brews. Mine was nearly kicked and lacked carbonation and was served... More

Visited for happy hour on a Friday. Arrived at around 5PM and things were hopping, but not crazy. Place was very busy by 7PM. Adult crowd in the tap room, good beer selection. We had a few appetizers and a couple of beers. Service was snappy - wait staff was able to speak intelligently about beer selections. Like it for... More

The goat cheese salad is a favorite. It's perfectly dressed and the texture of the toasted goat cheese patty is wonderful. But as other reviewers have mentioned, the tables need a good wiping. Everything feels sticky/greasy. If it had a good cleaning, I'd consider going back. But the prices for a salad are really steep considering the portion size. You've... More

I so wanted to just get a scrub brush and attack the entire restaurant with bleach. This place was just sticky, you could sense the layers upon layers of grease and splattered food. The food itself was bland and not at all memorable. Service was pretty good - this is about the only good thing I can think of to... More

My wife and I attended a group Christmas dinner right before the holiday. Most everyone's meal appeared to be satisfactory, but my Seafood Fettuccini was marginal at best with little lump crab meat and 4-5 small shrimp. The fettuccini was also way overcooked. One the plus side the draft beer was as advertised, the service good and the cost reasonable.... More
