This place was so awesome! We walked in, and although it was a little outdated, as soon as we sat down and saw the food and beer menu we had a feeling it would be good. Also, our waitress was wonderful! Maureen was sweet, hospitable, and gave great recommendations. My husband and I each got a flight of beer, it... More

Walked in at 9:30 pm on Sat night. Were seated right away. They were busy for dinners right up until 11 pm when we left. Of course the brews were great, but the food quality/quantity was surprising. I had the beef stew over linguini special. It was very good, with huge portion at reasonable ($15) price. My son had "a... More

When visiting my son, Brown's Brewing Co always gets high praise, so we checked it out. There is plenty of variety for everyone to be happy. None of us were drinking, but if beer is your thing, this would be the place to go. The have many varieties and offer options for ordering a variety of sampling sizes. It looked... More

I've been here many times and love it every time I come! The food has gone down a bit since they hired the new chef a couple of years ago, in my opinion, but the beer is worth the trip itself!

No complaints here, seated right away on a busy weekend. The wait staff was excellent. Varied menu both for food and drinks. The one beer I tried was really good. Our food arrived quickly, with nice presentation, and ample portions.

Saturday evening is always a busy time at any restaurant but this one is expecially busy. There really isn't much space to wait and the bar area is overly crowded. The service is fair, seems to be a long time before food arrives and a long time before you see a waitress again. What saves the place is their great... More

The setting is interesting and the server was helpful but my meal was lukewarm and just ok. Portions are large and there are many beers and ales available. If noise is an issue this is not the place to go.

Our son got married here the last Friday in October. What a great place. The service was incredible and the food very delicious. They really can handle a big crowd as there were about 130 people. There also was plenty of room for the band and everyone up and dancing.
