Worst possible trip ever. I met at the door by a wonderful dog. I asked if my dog Walter was welcome. The person behind the kitchen said YES. Then right after my food arrived, I was asked to leave because of the dog who was lying down quietly. Meanwhile they have a dog that lives there roaming around. The owner/management... More

Keegan's has a proven line of solid beers. They hit all the highlights: IPA, Porter Stout, etc. And they are all good, some even are really good. The place itself is cool. It;s in a renovated building and they did a great job designing the bar area. It's really more set up for drinking pints, but they do offer flights.... More

My husband and I visited this brew pub recently for a late lunch. This is not a restaurant, rather a brewery that serves food. Having said that, the assortment of beers is very good and the food was delicious. Very rustic interior with high seats at keg tables plus a friendly dog has the run of the place. No wait... More

I gave Keegan 4-stars because of their brews and ales which are 5-star. As a restaurant, or ever just as pub grub , they fall short, 3-star at best (probably 2). The food we ordered too way too long, was cold, and candidly worth far less than the charge. I have been to multiple brewpubs, at sites of breweries, from... More

Not much to look at, but the pub food is good; the beer is made on site and very good (I recommend the Old Capital. Many opt for Mothers Milk!). Plenty of parking; outside seating. Tuesdays see a diverse group of locals in teams playing trivia against each other. Never encountered any issues. Keegan Ales is one of those places... More

We had a very enjoyable evening at Keegan, drinking beer and listening to live music. The beer is excellent and it's a great place to sit and relax with friends. A full bar is available for those who don't drink beer.

I frequent this place. The crowd is extremely diverse. They run a tight ship so there's never any problems there. The beer is made on site. They have many varieties for every taste. Parking is good. Well lit. This is a great place for a safe evening!!!

We mostly go on the weekends when they have bands. Rarely a cover charge, but lots of dancing. The food is great and the people are wonderful.

We went to this bar on a night with live music. It's a solid bar with some great brews on tap. If in the area, why not check it out?
