We met some friends for lunch, it was our first time here since the new ownership (quite a while). I had a brat on a pretzel roll, chips and an octoberfest (they brew their own) OUTSTANDING!! My wife had the Harvest salad which she raved about the whole way home. Our only disappointment is that we don't live closer so... More

Excellent service provided by Corrine. Nice tasty warm rolls. Split pea soup is flavorable but could be great if it had small pieces of ham in it. The $15 bottle of white zinfandel was good and nicely chilled. My wife had the salmon with blood orange sauce. She said it was excellent with the asparagus and quinoa. I really enjoyed... More

Artisan's is one of my favorite lunch and dinner spots. Fresh, tasty salads, sandwiches, wraps and more to satisfy any palate. Plus, the wine and beer list is extensive with plenty of great options!

Really good burger. Wanted to try their house made pickles but they were out. My buddy loved his eggplant parm. Liked one of their brews, but not the amber ale, which they also gave me by mistake. Bar tender was also a little obnoxious. Ah well I think his hockey team was loosing so... Food was better than the service.

I hosted a 60th Birthday Party for my Uncle at Artisan's Brewery. From my very first inquiry, the staff were great - friendly and accommodating. We had the party today and the food was outstanding! I loved that we had a private room just the right size for our group of about 30 (I think there is a larger one... More

The drink menu turned me off, I was looking for a good creative bourbon drink and found nothing but very sweet drinks. Beer menu is great. Place is new and clean but not... More
