After a long day of trainings myself and 3 co-workers went to grab lunch at this location. We were seated with in minutes of arriving on the second floor right by the stairwell. The booth seating arrangements aren't the most friendly for those of a larger statue. Our friendly waitress arrived with water for everyone and ready to take our... More

I really enjoyed their food and their beer selection. One of those places where you can pretty much get anything on the menu and be pleased with the extra little touches they add to the dishes. Fries are very good! 😜

Great tasting beers, good value food as well. Generally they are always busy, but worth the wait. I suggest if you dont know what kind of beer to order, get the sampler!

The jambalaya on penne was very tasty but filling, so I only consumed about one half and took the rest to go. Upstairs dining was quite loud with a young sports team nearby excited from an obvious victory. Stomach issues the next morning ruined the day and the to go box went out with the trash.

Came here last for a good-bye lunch for a co-worker. The food arrived quite quickly for a group of 16. Good service and excellent quality food. I wish we were drinking, as I had my eye on several beers I wanted to taste.

This is a great place to go for some really good draft beer. Piercing Pilsner is by far my favorite but the 90 minute IPA and Burton Baton are close seconds. Food is exceptional. Personal favorite is the half-rack ribs. But the Memphis chicken platter is a great choice as well. Great location, tons of parking, and best local beer... More

The food was delicious! I had the portobello mushroom and Gorgonzola burger with beach fries. The burger was so fresh and not greasy. It melted in your mouth just like a homemade patty. They also have a large salad selection. Their crab soup was very good as well. This is Not your average run of the mill bar food and... More

This place really has some amazing beer, some of the best in Montgomery county. Its been a long time since they have updated their menu however, thus the 4 star review.
