“Good microbrew selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Nice to find a good microbrewery & restaurant while visiting the east coast. We're spoiled with an abundance of good microbreweries & coffee houses in Oregon. This felt like home, but with the east coast crowd. Very nice. A bit loud & a bit of a wait, but fun weekend evening out. Great variety of beer, good food. Didn't stay for the live music.

“Nice place, good food and drinks.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Saturday night dinner. Hopping place. Don't go if you are in a hurry or want a quiet conversation. Busy and loud, everyone having a good time. Great variety of edibles. Had a plate of mussels for an appetizer. Yummy! Many kinds of beer on tap. Great menu selections. Live music that night. We left before it started. Moderately priced.

“Auto pilot when looking for brew and pub food in FFX”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

So glad this place continues to thrive cause there is nothing else like it in the area. Excellent beer selection with great seasonals. The food is much better than one would expect. The wings are amazing...served really hot and delicious. I think I've tried most of the items off the bar menu...good stuff.
Another great thing is that it's a family friendly place. I often see parents with their kids in the restaurant area. The outdoor patio is a great recent addition. Although it's next to the parking lot, they've done a good job of planting around it. Will only get better with time.

“Around good place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

During the day this is a good place for both adults looking for a good beer and families. At night it is a bar and I would not take kids. The food has always been good. They do have a children's menu. The service is great. The appetizers are exceptional along with the beer selection. This is our go to place to chill out. We took my sister and her family out Saturday afternoon for lunch and I think they will be going back on their own as well. It does get loud at night so this is not a quiet romantic place. During the day the noise level is much lower (which I like).

“Great place to eat and after work”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

A great place for happy hour. The atmosphere is really good and so is the food. The service at the bar was great and they had a nice selection of drinks on tap.
