“Great Place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Went here because of the reviews- it was great. Service was excellent- very helpful. Wide variety of beers and the food was great- spicy but great flavors. Sat outside above the river- very relaxing

“Steak Sandwich/Beer List”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Great beer list, mostly local brews. Delicious IPA. Cool vibe. Perfect steak sandwich. My dining companion got a burger and said it was great. Both sandwiches were served with a side of pickled carrots - top notch!

“Steak Sandwich Masterpiece”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

One of the best steak sandwiches I have ever consumed. Also tried the fried pickles which were tasty and the french fries were delicious, although I was not a fan of the homemade ketchup. In short, better than your average bar food by a wide margin. Not a very extensive menu but cmon its a bar. Sat outside on the river walk which was nice enough and they had live music inside.

“Unique Bar- with craft cocktails, excellent beer.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Food was out of this world. Some might consider the craft cocktails expensive, but if you do, you've probably never had one this good before. Great local beer. Wonderful place for someone who appreciates good food, good beer and good cocktails. Gets crowded fast, though!

“Just Plain Cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

OK, at the front of the bar you get greeted by a stuffed something or other and get hit by an odd smell. I thought to myself: on no. But, the bar tenders are helpful (wait service is a little slow), the drinks tasty, and the crowd friendly. This place is a big: Oh yes.
