On the advice of a friend, we stopped in here for dinner and it was very good. Typical brew pub decor and atmosphere with a good selection of beer. I'm not a fan of "trendy" type beers and stuck with a lager and it was good. For dinner, I had the home made meat loaf and not only was the... More

We met friends for dinner. We like the atmosphere of the old brick building, however inside it was pretty noisy. They did have outside dining which consisted of tables with umbrellas but it was right alongside the road and was not really nicely landscaped and did not have any sort of view. The food was average. I ordered the Ponzo... More

We stopped here for a light bite and some beverages on a Monday afternoon. The place is very cool and I loved the copper table tops. We ordered Buffalo wings and a thin crusted "shroom" pizza. Both were delicious. The pizza had several types of mushrooms, spinach, caramelized onions and (my favorite) truffle oil. We enjoyed the Strawberry Wheat beer... More

I love this place and try to make it a mandatory stop when in the area. The beers remain top notch, especially the milk stout, and the atmosphere as always is wonderfully, incredibly late 1800's industrial. On my recent visit I felt the food had taken a downward turn. It was good, but "write home about it good" which it... More

Four of us popped in for dinner the one night we were in Lancaster. My husband ordered a few different beers and liked them all, I ordered a fancy cocktail and had to send it back (tasted like cough medicine). I HATE sending things back and try never to do so but in this case I just couldn't drink it... More

I used to think most breweries had good food, DON'T expect it here. I had the fish tacos: stiff and stale tortilla, obnoxiously spicy, rip off at $9.50 because you only get 2 and a few tortilla chips on the side. The wife had the crab cake sandwich: somewhat decent, expensive but at least it came with fries. I do... More

The food is great, especially for a casual atmosphere. Reasonably priced also. The beer is hit or miss, none are really bad or great.

We got to Lancaster late on a Friday and stopped here for dinner. The food was wonderful as was the beer. Our waitress was very good at making suggestions. We look forward to returning.
