Description: A lively and casual dining experience, we feature fresh, handcrafted beers brewed on premise and an innovative menu. Our beers range in style from Pale Ales and Light Lagers to Stouts, Belgian-styles and Amber Ales. We also brew many specialty and seasonal beers, all of which are handcrafted by our Brewmaster using his original recipes. The atmosphere is rich in woods and gleaming brewing vessels. Our service is friendly and upbeat. Our moderately priced menu features a medley of items ranging from Fish and Chips to Roasted Chicken and Filet Mignon, a variety of interesting salads, and our world famous White Cheddar mashed potatoes.

“Decent food for a bar/brewery type place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

I've been here a few times and usually settle for a burger or some appetizers with drinks. Food tastes fresh, drinks are about average priced outside of happy hour. It's the kind of place I go when passing by and can't think of anything else.

“Beer Sampler”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Good sampler of beer for $6 and food is above average for this type of chain restaurant. Service is fast and friendly, I will definitely look them up next time.

Friendly staff, really good food and great beer! Great location that's not in a busy area, but could use more parking.

“Rock Bottom -”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

We did not try the brews as we do not drink. This restaurant was located near our hotel and we ate there on two occasions on our trip. The food was good quality for the price. Both times, our servers were good and seemed to make an effort to please. The food was as one would expect for this type of establishment, maybe even a bit better. I would have a tendency to recommend this type of restaurant more for twenty-somethings or thirty somethings over families though. If I was looking for a place to hang out and dine with friends, I might choose this pub.
