There are tons of beers to try and we particularly liked the descriptions, which were not only funny, but really accurate. The food we had was ok. The burger was fine, the Parmesan fries were pretty good, the white mac & cheese was tasty, but...it was the pretzel bites that made us want to come back. They were the most amazing pretzel bites we've ever had - outstanding! Super soft inside and this fabulous crunch on the outside. Plus, they came with this fabulous queso. We could have come back every day to get those pretzel bites. So, go for the beer and for the pretzel bites and skip the rest of the food. Good service and good location.More

We enjoy trying the local fair where ever we go! This was our first stop in Manitou Springs and it was the right choice. Quaint, dog friendly patio. Great selection of local brews and good food!

We ate here on our first day in town. It has a small patio that we were able to sit and enjoy our meal outside in such beautiful weather. The burgers were really good. My husband and I opted to upgrade our fries to their...Cajun seasoned ones. Those were not so good. Our son chose their regular fries and those were good. Service was great!! We would definitely eat here again but would not upgrade our fries.More

We stopped for lunch. Even before we entered the staff was rude. Our server could not have been more rude and condescending - and we were beyond polite. We drank our beers and left. What is happening to the hospitality industry?

This place is so cool as a nestle of a bar off the beaten path with good beer and food and good vibes from the staff. Great place to end a hike at.

Ambience and our server Meghan were just delightful. Food came out cold, nacho cheese was not melted, taco meat was cold. Over all not good food. But again… adorable patio and Meghan was lovely. Only given it 3 stars bc of the service.

Worth coming just for the beer. I tried several, and they were all excellent. As a home brewer myself, I know great beer. They have it. The food is unremarkable. Not bad just not notable in anyway.

Had dinner here one evening. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the fresh air. Even though it was quite busy our food came unbelievably quickly. Great meal!

Stopped by for a local beer and dinner. Nice menu but we didn't enjoy the "pretzels". More like fried bread dough and not a traditional soft pretzel. The server was friendly but didn't know the ABV on any beers and made no effort to find...out. Overall I would recommend visiting this brewery. Family friendly. Closes a little early at 8 pm.More

This place is great! We stopped here after spending the morning at the Garden of the Gods. It was perfect for a quick bite to eat and drinks to whet our whistles. It’s a little bit off the main drag but SO worth it!

Of the four days we were in Manitou Springs, we spent 2 1/2 here. They have indoor and outdoor tables available and a great variety of beers and bar-food. Service was exceptional and quick. Loved it!

As a native, I wanted to show my visiting friend some of our great brew houses yesterday. It's busy, so when the bearded young waiter walked up in a hurry, I quickly told him "pale ale". He even more quickly scolded me like a kindergarten...teacher to "say please". This is a poor way to sell 12oz glasses of tap beer at $7 a pop. We didn't even bother staying for food.More

My wife and I stopped by for an afternoon drink at the bar. Both servers (12/17/21 @ 3:00) seemed annoyed and rushed. We both asked for a taster and it was delivered with no explanation or discussion of their beers. Then they began serving others...who came after totally ignoring us. Finally one of the servers asked if we knew what we wanted and I said my wife does however I would like to taste the pale ale. With that she looked right through us and went to a table behind and asked what they wanted. What? Are you serious? We left and will never return. AND we weren’t all that impressed with the two beers we tasted. I guess they know they are the only game in town and they can treat people however they want.More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. I was the only one to try the beers. I had the Scottish ale, and a crancherry blonde. Neither of them impressed me. The crancherry blonde tasted off, and the Scottish ale tasted weak and watered down. The food...was average and overpriced. It was the most we payed for lunch while in Colorado. I was told later that the place across the street is better.More

I could not speak to that answer. I would recommend that you make a call to the bar/restaurant.

Yes, but it is a very adult setting, it's a bar with bar food. Everyone drinking. Kids would need to be able to blend in to that adult conversation atmosphere. The outdoor seating would be best.
