Had a weeknight dinner at this interesting Pub. Nice service staff; quirky menu with some really interesting choices. Tried a nice goat cheese salad and the Asian Salmon sandwich (which I thought was a dish, but was a sandwich). Both, very good; along with a nice bottle of J. Lohr chardonnay. We ate on the porch, and the view would... More

Of the beers I've tried, the maiboch is my favorite, and a really nice, rich, full, complex beer. The others are good, but nothing particularly great. You can get growlers and refills here, too. The food is your basic burgers/sandwiches/chips kind of thing, not bad, but great, either. Service is fine. One nice detail: Next to bathrooms there is a... More

The food was pretty solidly average. Can't really say anything bad about it, but can't really say it was amazing either. My husband tried two of the beers, he said one was meh, the other was pretty good (I'll try to find out later if he remembers which ones they were), but basically it was hit or miss. The service...

In the heart of college town! Fall is a great time to visit, but any time of the year this place is hopping. Menu is not too big, so all food is very good. Their three meat chile with cornbread is the best. Although I haven't had any, my husband and friends enjoy the IPA and locally brewed beer. Me... More

Had a good time trying the beer sampler but we didn't eat the food. The wait staff was nice but this place is more of a restaurant that happens to brew beer rather than a brewery that happens to serve food. We had a good time but we would've been alright skipping it too.

This place may brew their own beer and it may even be good, but after sitting at the bar and seeing all the dust and dirt I would NEVER eat or drink there again. When you are preparing beverages put in the open that is dirty I can only imagine what the kitchen looks like. Totally grossed me out! I've... More

To be fair, it was a Labor day weekend, so probably very busy everywhere else too. So it took a while for the server to take our drink order and even longer - meal order. the prices were on a high side for the quality and quantity of food we got. Beer was not outstanding either. Just average.

We ate outside which was lovely, but rather chairs than hard benches. Rustic pizza different and excellent. Artichokes, kalmata olives some of special ingredients. Pastrami sandwich and the mussels also enjoyed. The French fries were also outstanding. The décor inside is eclectic and fun. Read the story of this place, its really fascinating..

Unlike many other breweraunts, this one has found its footing and runs a nice, professional establishment. This place can also get busy and this has driven their food prices up, but the food also seems to be getting better year over year. The menu is eclectic in a good way and I am usually pleasantly surprised at how well executed... More
