My husband and I stopped on a whim. The place is small in front with more in the back or outside. Better to make reservations for a large group. We were very pleased with the choices of beer. Our waitperson at the bar, Kyle was...More

Don't skip on this place. Food, brew, & service were excellent. Brie burger was great, & sweet potato fries were candy!
