The Beer Lover's Alternative...

Just recently moved to this fair city, but on the date of the PMS: a small celebration was had - knew it was good, but a little foggy - lol. So, I had to try it again. Happy I did. Limited menu, but high quality. The menu changes frequently with seasonal ingredients, but something for anyone. For... read more

Had a most excellent lunch here with my two kids and a great aunt - we all mooned over our dishes and the service was extraordinary. Not to mention the awesome craft beer selection. Cannot wait to go back! :)

I came in for lunch and I have to say the service was top notch. Waiter noticed my napkin on the floor before I did and brought me a new one promptly. Beer list is decent and salad was good. It's a simple place, great for a quick bite and a brew.

In a busy place I have no problem with using all of the space, the place was nearly empty. I ordered and the waited for bread and continued to wait. My food arrived and after... More

I love this restaurant. It's understated decor and unpretentious presentation and service is amazing. The food, however, is the real star. From snacks, to apps, to entrees and desserts, everything I've tried here has been delicious. The cheese plate with figs and pickled veggies is a perfect appetizer in the truest sense of the word, having the perfect amount of... More

Very limited menu and what we ordered was only so so. They need to expand the menu and spruce up the dishes a bit to entice me back.

The restaurant added a new chef in late fall and the food has moved to the spectacular level. We visited for New Year's Eve for a New Orleans Pig Roast and the food was as good or better than what we had on our last visit to New Orleans. Last night we attended a Beer Dinner with 26 other lucky... More

We found the atmosphere and staff very friendly and inviting, not to mention the food........ that just made me happy. Thoughtful plates with great... More

My wife and I have been going here since they opened and as of late they seem to have gotten better. The burger, my wife says, is one of the best she has had (ever... and that is saying a lot!). The beer selection isn't your standard Boston area fare and I have actually been able to get Dogfishhead 120... More
