Worth another stop

We had a child with us, and the children's menu was awesome! She also ordered ice cream which was big enough for several people!. The ribs were fall off the bone, the salads, very fresh and satisfying. Crab cakes were above average, but not the best we have every had. Noisy-they need some stuff on... read more

We went here for my wife's birthday, and the experience was completely ruined by the incompetence of the kitchen staff. We both ordered burgers medium rare. Mine came out medium at best, bordering on medium-well. Not ideal but excusable. My wife's came out looking like a piece of charcoal and tasting like one too. The bacon on the burger was... More

This was another stop along the way from St. Louis to Philadelphia. Nice restaurant, good food and great beer. We tried the Dwaygo (sp?) and the Catoctin clear. Both excellent. The crab dip was especially good. My partner had the hawaiian burger - I thought it sounded a bit weird but it was actually very good. I had the taco... More

Burger was good, but one of the aps came out cold and several groups that came in later got their order first.

Had a pleasant meal on our way out of town. The atmosphere is lovely. The food is just "ok," though. Had Cream of Crab which was extremely watery and Scallops were ok, but overpriced for what it was. Even the Blue Cheese dressing seemed bland and watery. Overall it was decent but next time through town I'd probably stop elsewhere.

Not stellar. Food took a while and one of the appetizers was cold. Food was so slow. The juicy Lucy had unmelted cheese inside. Not enough jalapenos. The sweet potato fries were awesome. So is the catsup. Ceasar salad was good.

Very good selection of craft beers, and a nice selection of dinner entrees. The crab cakes were very good, and I particularly enjoyed the sweet potato fries. The atmosphere is very noisy, and they do not accept reservations.

Good and consistent craft brewery. Food is also consistent- prime rib is always a favorite if they are making it that night. Easy to find food for the kids here too. Good bar happy hour specials.

Went on a Monday night as it was close to our hotel. Beers were ok. Tried the stuffed burger with jalapeños. Good flavor but found only 2 little slices of jalapeño. Service was SLOW. Ehhh. Might try again if I'm in the area to give them the benefit of the doubt but probably not.

I went here twice in two days, and it was excellent both times. The beers were excellent (though they were out of a couple) and the food was really good too. I had a burger both times, as did most of the other people I came with, but other menu items looked good as well. Highly recommended.
