I can't believe I was served such an ugly beer in a brew pub. I'm not a beer snob, but the pint should be full and it shouldn't look like someone else already beat me to the first sip. Staff didn't seem to care about the customers, but they did have time for their friends. Food was acceptable, beer was... More

If you want a good beer at a great price, try this place out. Especially during happy hour. Just be sure to check their hours as they are closed on Sundays as most places in Artesia are. They have good for with choices for all types.

We had a friend show us this place a few years ago. Was passing through Artesia today and decided to stop. I had the southwest chicken and a chocolate stout. Both were very good. My husband had the roughneck red and fish and chips. We would definitely stop here again when passing through!

Veggies were obviously frozen, not fresh...potatoes were hard and undercooked and the chicken breast was so-so. The chicken strips my son ordered were definitely frozen too. Not impressed at all.
