DELICIOUS

Family of four split the sampler platter for four - PLENTY of food, all of it delicious. Winner for the kids was the pulled pork, with the sweet BBQ sauce. Parents liked the ribs and sausage (spicy). all good - beer was great too!

Went on a recommendation from a local. We were surprised they served breakfast. We had great service & food. The eggs were so good. The place is very casual & clean.

Plenty of great food at reasonable prices. Great atmosphere, live band, fun people everywhere. And of course, the best beer around! We'll bring the kids back next year. They'll love the playground.

This is an amazing place to hang out with a group of friends, very laid back. Food is served family style and thanks to the brewery on site, lots of choices of beers. If you have time you can also do a brewery tour, which is a good idea, then you know which one to order with your meal. Food... More

You get a lot of food for the money. Pleasent waitress and host. Pulled pork and ribs good flavor, but like my ribs cooked with bbque sauce. Potato salad is made with eggs, this should be mentioned on the menu. Less crowded than town restaurants

Returned after a couple of years, and the food was excellent, as always, esp the pulled pork. A great stop for breakfast, too (get the hot Italian sausage)

We thoroughly enjoyed our meat and beers at picnic tables conveniently located by the gift shop where the brewery tours and tastings started. The meats were... More
