Great place to eat and drink before the Akron Rubber Ducks game or activities at Lock 3. Panko encrusted chicken sandwich and fish tacos were fantastic! Huge selection of craft beers.

Nice atmosphere, very friendly staff.....comfort food (gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, croquettes, etc). The music is always great, as is the craft beer (and bourbon)selection. Very affordable too.

Stopped in on New Years Eve. Awesome beer selection and fantastic food! The speed of service was also a huge plus--food was out much faster than any of us expected. Keep up the great work!

One of my favorite restaurants. It isn't fancy, but the food is unique and great. Low prices and so many things to pick from. Even the beer selection is over 100 choices, many hard to find craft beers. Expect to wait on a summer weekend,...More
