I wont be back. Out of the house brewed beers, they had 4 available, the other 5 were out of stock. I had the Bituminous Black Ale ($5) and was an average dark beer, it didn't stand out as good or bad. The other beer...we had was called the Expat ($6), and it was very similar to a bud light, but fell short of even that. We started the meal with a Brewhouse Pretzel, and that was seriously the best part of the meal with the beer cheese and honey mustard complementing it well. You can tell it was premade, but it was nice, but pricey at $14. I ate the Trio of Chuckers ($15) and it was vastly under-seasoned. There was no salt or pepper on the trio at all and they were under cooked, like totally raw in the center. The fries were the best part of the meal after I added a lot of salt to them. My other half tried to order the Bacon Burger ($16) without the tomato, but we were charged for the build your own burger which was more expensive ($17) and had less than what the Bacon Burger was supposed to have. The bacon burger was supposed to have thick sliced bacon, lettuce, tomato, white cheddar, and our house coleslaw. What we got was a burger with bacon and a slice of cheddar on it, no house coleslaw or lettuce at all. The waitress didn't tell us she was going to do this or say anything about the up charge, for just asking for 1 item to be left off. We would have picked it off if she would have said something. We tried to get the burger fixed, but the waitress wouldn't do it. We had already waited an hour from the time we arrived to try to get the food so we just ate it, or at least tried to, as this burger was also raw in the center. When we were there only 2 other tables inside were occupied and one outside. We were all ignored by the waitress. She never once checked on us unless we flagged her down. The people outside had to come inside themselves to get any service and to get their check.More

Great beer. Food was good. Actually had a proper cook on my burger! That alone is an achievement. Service was a little slow but the place was packed. If in the area I'd stop in again

WOW I'm tempted to nor write a review. It was packed when we got here but got seated within 10 min. The staff is attentive, my wife had salmon which was fantastic. I had the fire burger, it was cooked to perfection and had great...flavor. They brew their own beer and even though I'm not a fan of some of it but had a flight of 8. I started light and went dark and they sure did get better. With their Hobo City milk stout getting 5/5 from me.More

This was our second time here, but it's been almost four years, We stopped in for a beer and pretzel, which we had enjoyed on our last visit, but also decided to grab lunch as well. We had an excellent waitress named Amy. We enjoyed...our beers and lunch, but walked out so full, we skipped dinner!More

I meet a friend in West Branch as a 1/2 way point between where each of us lives, and this place has quickly become our go-to! The atmosphere is great, and the food is delicious. I refuse to try anywhere else!

I went here with a group of friends on a Sunday afternoon for a beer flight and dinner. We were seated promptly without reservations. My appetizer was the sweet heat rounders. Bacon covered sausages. Unfortunately they were overcooked and crispy but I ate them anyways...since I was starving and had not eaten all day. My entree was a medium done rodeo burger with fries that was excellent. I also enjoyed the breweries beers on my flight even though several I would have liked to try were not available. A bit pricey. Booth, flat top, bar and patio seating. Friendly but forgetful service. Clean. Wifi. Street parking. I would return.More

Great food, staff and atmosphere! Highly recommend. Stopped on our way up north. About 4 miles off I-75, but worth the drive.

We stopped here for lunch and had some craft beers on our way home from the UP. I ordered the hush puppies that had a nice kick to them and my husband had their veggie burger, which he really liked. The beers were pretty good....I had the milk stout and my husband tried both their IPAs.More

Michigan restaurants are now open (AGAIN)! This brewing company was fun and the staff were wonderful. The menu needs a bit of work to give the consumer more of a choice. We had a wonderful time. Do make a reservation. We didn't have one, but...they were very helpful to us.More

We've been here a few times while passing through. We stopped in for a drink and appetizers. The pretzel is always good with their dipping sauces, and this time they had bacon wrapped sausages with BBQ sauce which were really good with their home made...dipping sauce ~ Our waitress did a wonderful job on serving us.More

Overpriced lunch! Be sure to ask about the “Market Value” priced item on the appetizer selection! $22.00 for about $2.00 worth of munchies served on a board! 3 small rolled up pieces of some kind of lunch meat, 3 Small heard sausage bites, 3 Stone...Baked Crackers, about 6 tiny pieces of toast, a smattering of yellow cheese crumbles with green in it, 3 small strips of some white hard cheese, a bunch of about 10 grapes on a vine and some sorta spread for the toast. Will go to Loggers across the street next time for lunch.More
