“Decent food, beer, good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Stopped for a night in Grand Island and decided to find a brew pub. Service was very good, nice atmosphere. Beer was good, food reasonably priced.
Had the salmon, portion was on the small side, but enough for me. Husband had a steak .. it was a little salty, but otherwise fine.

“Excellent Food and Quick Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Our party of 5 had a late dinner on a Friday evening and were waited on right away. Server was helpful and friendly. Food came out hot and was delicious.

“Surprisingly good walleye!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Had dinner here on Good Friday. I'm usually hesitant to order fish at any bar unless it's fish and chips, but I decided to take a chance, and am I glad I did. I received a rather large portion of walleye, not overcooked, moist. The only snag was I tasted a LOT of the lemon pepper on the meatier portion of the filet. Did it stop me from cleaning my plate? No. :) The menu mentions "served piping hot in the foil it was baked it". There was no foil, but the fish was piping hot. When it's available, do not miss the roasted cream corn as a side. DH got either the sirloin or ribeye; he enjoyed his, as well. Service always very friendly and attentive.

“Always good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Visited the busy little Chicken Coop again. Had a steak, done exactly as ordered, sides good. Some of our party had the half-rack of ribs and raved about them. Good service this time, the waitress seemed a little more "seasoned." The micro-brew received good reviews (the peach wheat, the scotch ale and the amber) at our table. The atmosphere at the Coop is great, very relaxed for young singles or families with young children, seniors, etc.

“Awesome place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

The chicken coop is famous for, you guessed it: chicken! They have a menu full of other things that are good, but do yourself a favor and order some chicken. They are also a microbrewery, so go ahead and order one of their brews, you'll be happy you did.
