The food was okay, but the drinks were amazing. Service was fine and the place had a nice vibe. Your best bet is to sit outside when the weather is nice!

Given the reviews I expected a lot more. It was a Sunday night and our waiter wanted to be anywhere but there. The place was about a third full and yet it took forever to order a drink and when we did, he wanted our food order at the same time. Good thing we did order then because it was... More

This fine pub is one of the better pub/sports bars I have been to in a long time. The beer was excellent, I had two pilsners and a stout., They were great. Micro-brews usually shy away from lagers due to fermentation time and temp fussiness. Not the Black Lotus these were great beers like straight from Prague. The large screen... More

In town looking to recruit new breweries for our top list page in our publication and was delighted to stumble upon Black Lotus. Best burger I ever had in my life and paired it with a gold medal beer. Service was knowledgable and management was supper accommodating for our large party. Things took a little while longer than fast food... More

Haven't been here in a long time. We just stopped in for drinks so can't comment on the food. Beer was good, service was good. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio.

We met with a cousin to listen to the band and drummer. It was dark and loud but they had a very good selection of world music. A lot of "Santana" sounds that brought a number of people to the dance floor. The beer was excellent and the appetizers were very good.

Heard about this place from a few folks so we thought we would give it a try. Went for dinner and drinks. Food was typical run of the mill bar food...actually had better bar food. Seen a better beer selection at other microbrew places. Waiter was inexperience and should have had someone shadowing & training him since he did seem... More

Our family went for dinner before a performance. Food was great portions. My daughter and I split the nachos and still brought half home. Recommend the pretzles bites with the honey mustard and beer cheese dipping sauces. My sister liked her veggie burger. Everyone liked thw food and the beer, although limited is good. The Oatmeal stout was lovely like... More

Found this on Trip Advisor, took a chance on a late Saturday afternoon, and was so happy to have tried this place! Great beers, super sandwiches, and unbeatable desserts. Our waitress was the best too.

We went in for a much needed relief after spending the day in the hospital with my daughter. The beer and margaritas were delicious! Our food, there were 6 of us, all excellent. Recommend the nachos.
