Went on a Tuesday evening. Excellent service and great beer selection. I had buffalo chicken flat bread pizza and wife had mini burgers. We also had the pretzel with cheese. Really loved the vibe. Overall we will be back every year from now on.

It started raining yesterday early - so we popped into BBC and hung out, comfortably watching the waves of torrential downpours from their beer-barrel inspired bar stools. The lifeguards were still on duty despite the rain so they had some interesting stories to share. I...More
