We had enchiladas and a dish of seared ahi fish, both meals were delicious. We then capped it off with a goats cheese and halopeano cheesecake with a berry sauce with a taster of Porter beer, unusual and delicious.

In walking distance of our hotel, this was a great find (thanks to TripAdvisor 😜). A down to earth 'pub' spotlessly clean, with lots of seating, and different sports channels playing, sound off, on the big screens around the place. Family friendly. We had great...More

The Brewhouse has a wide selection of on site made beer and amazing food! Love their Salmon Salad with Kale! They have a decent happy hour menu (4-6) during the week, including a cheese burger and beer for $7.50

Stopped for a few nice pints here, nice mix of beers, nice chatty locals here so you can ask a few questions, they are usually hanging round the bar.

We have never had chipotle cheesecake before, and I doubt we’ll ever have the opportunity to eat it again, but the piece my wife and I shared at the Brewhouse was certainly memorable: sweet but with a bite. This place also has a good selection...More
