“Good brew pub adjoining an antique mall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

My husband and daughter wanted to go there because they love locally brewed beers. We got there and were promptly seated, but then rarely saw our server again. We did have to track her down more than once. Unfortunately they were out of the locally brewed beer my husband wanted-he had to settle for another stout, which he did like. Be forewarned that the menu is very limited. I had hoped for a cobb or chef salad, neither of which they had. I then decided on an olive burger, but that was not listed on the menu. Finally settled on a burger that was served with their homemade potato chips. Overall the experience was a good but limited one.

“Good Music Great Beer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

This is actually located past Douglas but worth the 1.5 mile trek from downtown Saugatuck. Waitstaff was excellent gave us samples before we bought a pint. Favorite thing was the Tomato basil soup with Gorgonz la should've gotten a bowl of that.

Drunken hummus was good although I did not sense any alcohol in the force.

The Chicago dog I had was ridiculously large and tasty. Highly recommend the trek!

Hubby and I would drinks food and appetizers spent $32 plus tip

We were there on Saturday night around seven and they had a band playing.

If you can't make it to the brewery you can find the beer at Meijer.

“Lunch time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We had lunch here while vacationing. We had the fish and chips -* note 2 people could split one order of this it was a lot of food and it was good. On the other hand the service was not so good - we like other reviewers had to track down our waitress to get a refill on drinks and then wait a while for our bill.

We stopped in for drinks in the afternoon. The beer was good. The service was poor. The waitress was obnoxious and had to be chased down for bill, water etc. it wasnt even busy.

“Expected more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

This isn't a bad place my any means. It was nice inside and out. The staff was friendly, and the food came out quickly. From the reviews I think we expected something a little more, wow, but then again were not beer drinkers. The food was decent. I had the chicken club and it was good, just a bit spicy. Our experience wasn't bad, but we probably wouldn't rush back on our next vacation.
