The wide selection of beers are listed on the wall with alcohol content and bitterness so you can pick out something you will enjoy. For food, we tried the veggie burgers which were very good An unexpected bonus was watching rock climbers at the back, so live entertainment as well.

Just got back from wing night. First off, wings are some of the best I've ever had anywhere. And I love the great selection of beers. Full marks for those two. This place really needs to work on the service though. I know wing night is a busy night, but wife waited over an hour for a salad after order... More

Hello. I'm glad the food was great. And you enjoyed the craft beer. The wing night you referred to on the 13th was actually crazy busy and all staff was in the weeds(that is restaurant term for borderline overwhelmed). We had some unexpected large tables surprise us and come in. Which makes it impossible to staff for, especially during the... More

The waitress was awesome. Friendly and gave a great information about the area. The local beer was great. We ordered nachos with house smoked chicken. Enjoyed them. We moved outside and enjoyed the outdoor atmosphere.

The first time I went, I loved it, minus the flies. The second time the food wasn't bad and the third time was my last as it was really bad. When a server takes your food that you have barely touch and doesn't even comment on that, wow, crappy service! On a positive note, the beer is good!

Was recommended to try this pub from the car rental place and glad we did. Had a salad as my main lunch - it was just ok - but the wings were seriously awesome! Service was just ok - had to flag the server down for everything - no check ins....

We chose the Lions Head Smoke & Brew Pub because it was close to our B & B lodging and because it had excellent reviews. It is an excellent choice! My partner had the Pinã Pulled Pork Sandwich and I had the 1/2 Rack Pork Rib Entree. Both were utterly delectable! It was crowded with locals, too, so obviously a... More

My friends and I came here to watch the game and grab a bite to eat... We shouldn't have! The game was on the TV, but the server refused to put the sound on, so we had no choice but to watch while listening to way too loud, terrible music. On top of the unfriendly service, the food was pricey... More

Hi thanks for coming to our Craft Beer taphouse. I will address your concern over the lack of sound for the TV, for your game. As we are not a sports bar but do have a tv, and sports will be on that tv from time to time, the volume for sporting games in our pub is only put on... More
