I got to sample 3 draft beers for $9 and loved the veggie burger. Choose the deep fried brussle sprouts as a side.

Good food, good service. Very loud. Good for games. Not good for large groups or if you want to talk.

Lunch for two was a positive experience. Service was attentive, beverages were cold, and meals were hot and well portioned.

I visited the restaurant today with friends from work. I had the shrimp Po Boy sandwich with the sweet potato fries. The sandwich was okay, way to much mustard. I mean, it was oozing out everywhere from my sandwich. I only gave this place 2 stars because the sweet potato fries were decent. The bad review has to do with... More

It was raining so hard yesterday that we stopped on State Street simply to be safe. After looking around we discover that we are right in front of The Geneva Ale House. Never having been there before, we looked at each other and said " what the hell". As we stumbled through the door trying to escape the rain, we... More

We only had drinks. The beer selection of course is wonderful. Had a beer flight. Good drink choices. The food looked very good. Some fun and different choices on the menu. Will go back to eat and drink more beer. Would love to go on mystery beer night. $3 beer and you roll the dice on what you will get.... More

We came here for a late dinner and hopefully we found this place because any other restaurant was closed! We were lucky because everything was good, in particular the mini burgers!

We stopped here just for drinks and loved it. The food menu looked good but we had already eaten. A huge beer selection including a great cider/fruit beer selection which I loved. The staff was friendly and good music. Will return!

The food is higher end pub food but the star here is their beer list. It's huge and constantly changing. Seating is nice and there are tvs to watch sports, for example. It's a good place for couples or a night out with friends.

It's been a while since I've been here. The beer selection is still good and you can't beat their Ruben sandwiches but stay clear of the over sized onion rings. I was looking forward to crunchy, sweet onion rings but what I got were these oversized breaded onion skin with a strange bitter taste served with a weird mayo based... More
