“Great food, service, atmosphere, but then we tried to pay the bill!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Had a drink at the bar waiting for our table. Great bar service. Wonderful atmosphere, not too noisy (no TVs and piped in music - thanks for that!). Great waiter for drinks and appetizers and food. Appetizers were very good (bone marrow, pickles and olives, bacon with prunes). Main courses also excellent, burgers, steak, veggie plate. Creme brule for dessert had a bit too thick and crunchy top layer. Everything was going great until we tried to get a bill and get it paid for. Our waiter had abandoned us, couldn't get him to come to our table. Finally got a bill from someone else but we wanted it split and he didn't do that. Then, over a period of 20 minutes we tried to pay the bill but repeated attempts revealed that their table-based paying system kept crashing, again and again. It has been reset, it will work now, it didn't. We were told that this was routine here....got to get that fixed, management! Spoiled an otherwise nice experience.

“great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We had a few great beers here on a late saturday afternoon. They had a band playing outside, and people were dancing like crazy in the rain, I loved it! You can hang out here for hours I, playing some of the games they have lying around. Beer is cheap, we had 'cheeseplate' which basically was a plastic container with different cheeses. But good enough to enjoy with some beers and good conversation and dancing.

“Odd concept, but had fun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Atmosphere was great, thought it was a bit odd that you had to order your own food in, but it did get delivered to your table. Overall had a good time, not sure I'd go back though

“Great Atmosphere and Cool Beer Selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Gorgeous outdoor patio (dog-friendly!) right on the water in PT. Gorgeous views while enjoying a beer (or a cider) from their impressive selection. The night we were there they had a great bluegrass band playing. There were a few folks playing bocce and ping pong - a lively atmosphere. We will definitely be returning!

“Perfect place to wile away an afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This place has the friendliest staff, and most fun atmosphere. They have live bands, a ping pong table outside, and a boule court. They were actually in tournament mode these day we were there.
