I went there with a group of friends and the locals became friends in a hurry. This microbrewery exemplifies a good time being had by all. I'd go back tomorrow if it wasn't so far from my home in NC.

On the main street, nice casual atmosphere, with good food & reasonable prices. I had a veggie burger & their homemade criss-cut fries are great! They.'re known for their boutique beers, tho' we didn't try any. Would go again.

I have been pretty miffed at this place, as will only cook burgers well done--but I just don't order the burgers--I'm over their silly burger rule. A friend and I visited for lunch and had an order of Fish and Chips as well as Fish...More

A comfortable and informal spot to visit with friends, but the dinner menu had a limited selection to choose from. I had the Malibu chicken sandwich, which was good. The fish taco and tri-tip taco were both just average. We had wings and fried pickles...More

The food and beer were reasonably priced and hit the spot. The service was quick and the waitress was able ti recommend which beer we might enjoy. Live music on Fridays as well.
