Delish!

Fabulous food and very fun beers! We ate here twice and had the same waitress! The first evening she was awesome and the second she seemed very stressed. We requested her and I don't think we were in her "section" and seemed a little put-out. The food was fantastic both times!

Walked in, bad impression with rude hostess and waitress,floors were noticeably dirty and needed to be swept. Didn't improve with service or food. 20% gratuity already added? No wonder the service was bad. Bread was frozen consistency of "chewy like day old bubblegum". Flies constantly landing on my legs. No thanks! Way better options! The best part was when we... More

Food was ok to good. I was not like , wow . I'm picky about my shrimp and I ordered a shrimp wrap. The shrimp is not devained. So you eat uncleaned shrimp. It not that hard to clean shrimp and make it soooo much better. The menu tells you to also tip 18-20% because that's how the servers make... More

Crab bisque was like water. Some of the hot food was cold. Nobody at our table liked their food. First visit was better than this one. Of course waitress did not check on us til meal was over. Would not recommend.

This restaurant has a prime location and good wait staff, but they need some help in the kitchen. Wings were cold. Kids' chicken strips were overcooked. Crab dip tasted like garlic & cheese dip with microscopic pieces of crab. Server was nice, but he couldn't make up for the poorly prepared food. For the price, definitely a disappointment. We should... More

Had high expectations for this place and was stunned by the indifferent kitchen. My daughter's lunch came with a plate that contained a mix of frozen and cooked waffle fries. The good news is they wash the lettuce, the bad news is they don't properly drain it, resulting in a watery caeser salad. I ordered the shrimp wrap that was... More

We had drinks and appetizers and it was pricey. The beer was home brewed and was good, but the appetizers were not much in quantity and size. All in all was a good place to visit and rest after a walk

The setting for this brewery could not be more delightful and the interior is pleasing as well. Beer is awesome, but the food was pricy and not worth the money. We have had a more enjoyable experience at lunch, but this visit was dinner and none of us seemed Wowed like we were during our lunch visit. Still worth checking... More

We stopped in to grab a sandwich and sample some local brews. There were about a dozen on tap and we ordered a couple of sampler flights (four 5 oz. samples), 7.50 to 10.50 depending on the gravity of the beers. The beers were uniformly good, the ESB and stout were outstanding. The pub-type food was delicious and reasonably priced.... More

Small dining room plus cute patio. When we went it was too hot to be outside, so we asked for a dining room table. Inside is nice, but the floor was DISGUSTING! We just went in for some apps to hold us over until dinner and while we were waiting I watched the busser push all of the crumbs and... More

I am sorry you feel my business was not up to your standards , we do try very hard to clean at every step along the way. our health department score is actually higher now, we were reinspected the day after you came in. We have a 98.5% , so I don't and apparently the health department doesn't think we... More
