Beautiful location, good food and beer

We've eaten here several times while visiting our Radford student. The interior is a soaring lodge, with a large stone fireplace and a lovely view from the windows or balcony. They offer sample sizes of their beers which is nice for those who want a smaller portion or just want to try different... read more

The waiter spilled water and beer on me and did not bother to clean up. Service was slow. Food was cold. Not much to commend it. I might come back in the summer to have a beer on the deck. I will not buy a meal here again.

This is a wonderful restaurant and brewery. They have a great menu that changes regularly. The desserts are heavenly. With the brewery in house there are so many beer choices. It is really nice on a cold day with the fireplace blazing. In warmer weather there is a wonderful balcony for outside dining that over looks the rand the city... More

I've heard about this restaurant since I moved to Radford 4 years ago. I will be moving in May and decided to add this place to my bucket list since I had heard such good things. I'm a vegetarian so generally it's hard for me to find food at most restaurants and I always research before we go to eat.... More

First, I'll start by mentioning the amazing views that can be had from nearly any place on the property. The restaurant sits high on a mountainside overlooking the New River and the City of Radford. The building and decor and beautiful! We tried several of their microbrews, all of which were fantastic. Having said that, the service was a bit... More

When visiting the area for family weekend at Virginia Tech, we searched for a restaurant that had lots of great ratings. This one had a lot, and we gave it a chance. What a fabulous place. I definitely wouldn't have happened on this restaurant, since it's a bit off the beaten path, or so it seemed, since I don't know... More

First off, we told the hostess we wanted only outdoor seating and that we were willing to wait. She told us two parties were ahead of us, but we were ok with that. When our table was ready, it was not outdoor. I explained that we had already had an entire conversation about outdoor seating, and that yes, we would... More

The beers are excellent and the food was great. I think the prices are kinda high but the food was very good and you can tell this wasn't institution food that was heated up but prepared fresh. You must get the beer sampler....they have a great selection for every beer lover.

First, yes the building is beautiful and the view lovely. Those are the high points of the review, that's it. the rest was poor at best. Oh, the beer was tasty too. I guess they have 3 things going for them. Maybe we should have skipped the food and then this review would have been much different. They were out... More
