Pub food and then some. Perogies the perfect starter and enough for the table to share. Interesting soup selections and great pub burgers.

We have been eating at this restaurant for years, but this past Friday we had an unsettling experience. Ordered two fish dinners with extra tartar sauce. Also several beers and wine plus an additional purchase of beer to go.. We have done this many times....These dinners are already the most expensive in the area at $21, but we always felt they were worth it. However, when we received the bill we noticed that we were charged an extra dollar for the tartar sauce. I expect to be “nickel and dimed” by the airlines, but not this restaurant.More

My family and I occasionally make the 20-min drive here, primarily for family dinner celebrations. The menu offerings are diverse and contains cuisine from Asia, Europe, Mexico, etc. The food is always excellent. The menu is on the smaller side, but what they do, they...do well. I always order the Spicy African Peanut Soup before dinner, which is delicious. The prices are on the high side, but as they say, 'You get what you pay for.' In this case, it's the atmosphere as well as quality dishes. This establishment doesn't take reservations, but rather operates on a first-come, first-served basis. The staff here has always been very professional and proficient during our dinner celebrations. There is indoor seating and a beautiful & spacious outdoor German-style beer garden where we always opt to dine in good weather. There is a full bar with this brewery's beers on tap and a full wine list. There is a nice music selection played and public Wi-Fi here as well. We always have a great time when dining here.More

Impressed by the food quality and portion sizes on two occasions going there. The patio/biergarten is very pleasantly adorned with flowers and other vegetation.

We ate there twice. The evening indoor experience was not so pleasant: it was dark, crowded and noisy. Our afternoon lunch the next day was a great improvement: it was beautiful and quiet, with tables nicely spaced. Food was good and plentiful, if a bit...expensive, and the children's menu was particularly generous. I ordered the grilled romaine, a new experience. It was tasty but sadly upset my stomach.More

Summer features outdoor dining and flowers galore. Gorgeous. The food and drinks are delicious and the atmosphere is super. The establishment is huge. The garden area is huge and the winter indoor space as well.

At best average food - burger was ok, but not $18 ok. Fries - cold. Beer - very good, but a pour was 1/3 foam. Nice open patio.

We ate here with two little kids (5 and 7) and everyone in our party was delighted with their meals. Excellent options, and not just typical bar fare. Very good food, tasty, fresh, and flavorful. A gorgeous dining patio, and just a generally awesome atmosphere....Josh was our waiter and was very helpful. Just an overall fabulous experience! We will definitely be back.

When we came in there were a few other tables, it was in the middle of the afternoon. We were told to pick our own table and the waitress proceeded to ignore our table for 30 minutes. She came to the table next to ours...and didn’t even acknowledge that we were sitting there. We ended up leaving. Very disappointed, we were really looking forward to eating here.More

We were in town to shop a bit, my husband and I were ready for lunch so we went ahead and got a table, although we had a party of 5 they sat the two of us and got us rolling with an appetizer and...drinks. Service was outstanding the whole time. We had a kids pizza, fish fry, turkey sandwich, beef in wick and a burger it was all great!More

The day after Thanksgiving you could’ve mailed it in; but the staff, food & service were all top shelf. Presentation and taste, too. Best fish fry, fries & even the side of coleslaw was delish. Of course the Old Man Winter Lager hit the spot....We stop here every year on our road trip and it never disappoints. (Even the bathrooms are spotless and the staff was masked up for our safety & theirs). 🍻More

Very nice ambience. Food had issues. Only because my wife and I had a meal that had French Fries. They were maybe overcooked because they were tough and couldn't cut them with our fork. Way overpriced. They give you a knife for I presume to...cut my pita sandwich. The knife couldn't cut butter and it didn't even cut my tough fries. The waitress was a very nice person, and helpful. Only being here once and never again, I didn't even mention it to her about the Fries issue. My wife had a Hamburg sandwich of some sort and it was huge and she was very pleased with it.More

We went on a Sunday and they were busy, but we didn’t wait too long to be seated. Service was pretty slow but again they were pretty busy and our server (who was very nice) seemed to be waiting on most of the tables. Pretzel...and beer cheese were good. Both of our English pub burgers lacked half of the toppings/sauce described on menu. The fries were pretty subpar. We have been there before and it has always been pretty good but this visit fell short.More

My daughter and I stopped there for an early dinner/late lunch and the food was tasty. My daughter ordered a sour beer and she enjoyed it until she found a bug in her glass. I on the other hand am not a beer drinker so...I ordered an old fashioned and that was disappointing. No muddled fruit which is always the bonus at the bottom of my glass. It really was just Jack on the rocks. The service was quick and the server was friendly. Just the right amount of checking back in with us and leaving us alone to enjoy the meal.More

Nice lunch and beer on the huge patio! Comfy, no rush, relaxing. Very happy they had Heineken 0.0 since I’m pregnant and not drinking right now. Most breweries have very meh non-alcohol options.

It is but it’s a little gross when the servers pet and interact with the animals then serve food WITHOUT washing their hands. Noticed it first hand.
