“Great Brews and Above Average Bar Fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

Huge selection of amazing beers including 36 on tap and a huge draft menu. Hard to find beers are there. Pretzels are the best I ever had. They have different flavors and tons of different topping. The best is there pretzel sandwiches. I have tried a few and cannot choose. Atmosphere is amazing. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

“Beer & Pretzels.. does it get better?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

With a huge assortment of awesome beers on tap and the best pretzels and pretzel sandwiches, you can't lose for a place to meet friends and have fun! They also have live music which I am sure you can find on their Facebook Page. You'll love the friendly atmosphere and there is so much to do in that little town of Westerly RI

“God Made a Pretzel Sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Heard about this jem in downtown Westerly and tried the Roast beef shaved onion cabbage slaw and garlic aioli on a pretzel sandwich. Maybe the best sandwich I've ever had.

Place was badly understaffed and service was very slow. A regular at the next table told me they were expecting a slow Friday and they got swamped and it was never like that when he came before. As I left the staff that had been called in from home to help out arrived.

Tons of different beers on tap and mixed drinks. Very limited menu for food, but what they had was great!

“Great bar food and Beer S-L-O-W service!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

We stopped for lunch after being told about this place, Very unique. AWESOME pretzel rolls with sandwiches. Great beer selection, on tap and bottles. Even had a gluten free menu and beer selection, which is why we went. The only drawback was the slow service. We must have waited for at least a 1/2 hour for our lunch. Though we did enjoy their beer and sprits while we waited! ;0) When in the area we will definably go back!

“Great Pretzels and Huge Beer Selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We like going because the pretzels are warm and the beer is cold. The Malted barley has a huge selection of draft beer and their pretzels are great.

Well worth a night out.
