Let us sit with beer while we decided whether to stay for food. Glad we stayed as the food was quite good for a small town. We had good service and a nice meal on the road.

This place has some of the best wings ever. With that being said, the beer was okay. When the waitress dropped off the check, she didn't say anything to us about needing to pay at the register. We got some swag from the store and looked to ask our waitress to add it to the tab. She completely ignored us... More

This microbrewery and restaurant are the best. Many different microbrews both from bottles as well as on tap. Funny names for the different beers and colorful bottle labels add to the experience. The beers were out of this world imho. The atmosphere was warm, inviting and cozy. The food was absolutely delicious. Two thumbs up!!

We stayed in Cortex the night before we went to Mesa Verde after doing the train to SIngleton. Good selection of beers and a lovely interior, plus they were opened on Sunday.... You will not be disappointed if you stop in for dinner and a beer (or two, or....)

We have had good food here, but we had a bad experience today. The service was slow and the food was just so-so. My wife's burger was way overdone (they adjusted the cost) and my fish and chips were mushy. I think it was just one of those days that the A team of cooks were off on Sunday because... More

This place was recommended by our hotel staff but we found it sadly lacking. Everything tasted like it came out of a box or pre-cooked package. Ex tried the pulled pork sandwich (pork was not dry but lacked flavor and the kc masterpiece BBQ sauce was uninspired at best), chicken breast sandwich (pretty good but nothing to write home about),...

We didn't expect too much from the mixed reviews. We tried the prime rib and the pork rack of ribs, and especially the prime rib was very good. Cooked medium-rare as ordered, with some sides (vegetables and baked potato) that were fine as well. The locally brewed beers were also good (we couldn't try all, of course), and atmosphere and...
