Discovered Rooster Fish a few years ago and was surprised to find good local beer in this area. While it is still pretty good, I find the same things here several years later.

We had very good sandwiches for dinner one evening at this restaurant. They have a good selection of beers and wines, and the menu is diverse. It is on the louder side, especially with table games on one side for patrons to play. Service was good and quick and the quality of food was very good.

This was my third visit to the Crooked Rooster. There were three beer lovers in our party and we all enjoyed the beer selection. I particularly liked a Belgian golden ale, a complex style of beer that many brewpubs do not offer. The barroom has a great atmosphere with an antique oak bar and windows that open to the street...
