Sorry, my daughter loved this place, but I was disappointed in the slow service. I had a calzone, which was mostly bread. I am a senior citizen, so maybe that was the problem. We (4 of us) spent nearly $100 on the meal and left hungry.

We came here for a late night dinner on a warm summer night, and were happy to sit outside on their deck near the creek. Not a fancy place by any means - dress casually and know you'll be sitting at picnic tables or something similar, and as the deck has different levels, you may be going up some steps.... More

Not much to say. Put your feet up on the picnic bench, tie your dog up and chill with a good beer and grubby pub food. It's not the Ritz, and that's what makes it pretty near perfect.

Great Beer list. Loved the Chocolate Coconut Porter! 2 Outdoor sitting areas, 1 overlooking the Creek. Can be a little dark as it is somewhat situated under the road above. Great food, friendly service.

We waited 20 minutes and were seated for our meal. The beer was good especially the na beer and the Elk Cove wine was only 6 dollars! The two women had the tasteless veggie sandwich and I had medium rare burger. It was well done but the waitress offered to provide a new burger which I decided to accept. The... More

We visited here with the family in a celebratory mood...had excellent beer and their wonderful golden crunchy tater tots! We didn't have to wait any time really to get service and had a thoroughly good time.

I have loved their beer for years. I was a little disappointed in that there was not much going on for a Saturday night. It was too dark and quiet to hang around for more than one brew. There are other places in town with more atmosphere, including their own brew house. I will give it another try next time.... More

Granted, it was Mother's Day, but we got there after eight o'clock and the place was only half full. They have dozens of beers on tap and really great, tasty food. They have salads, steak, chicken, fish, pizza and a variety of other items.

This is close enough to easily walk from The Bard, Best Western property. Offers inside as as well as deck seating (though deck is "rustic"). Expected some nice beer selections but not the extensive menu we found. I had a great fish dish that was prepared perfectly and hubby had 1/2 nacho order, which was still more than he could... More
