Stopped in for lunch during the week on way to Villanova. Really nice salads and great sandwiches. Reasonably priced and good size portions. Waiter says they cut out middle man and source straight from local farms thus better prices. They have great on- site brewed beers. Had the winter warmer

We just finished a dinner at this Brew house and were disappointed. The ribs had a good barbecue sauce but were dry and over-cooked. Sweet potato fries were cold. Sliders were good, but nothing special. The place was loud, but is expected for this type of restaurant. The food came in a reasonable amount of time, but after we placed... More

Happening place and was able to take a big group. Poutin was very good and burgers were fantastic. Beer choices good. Service decent.

The atmosphere of this place has a positive vibe. The service is lacking, as in you feel they just don't care. The menu is ok bar fare. Wimpy cold fries served with the burgers weren't eaten. Veggie burger was mushy, not firm. Beef burger was tasty. Artichoke dip appetizer was delicious. Should have started and stopped with that.

Eight of us went for lunch. Nearly an hour after seating, we asked where is our food! It was explained that there was a group in a private room who took precedence over us. We were not happy with that information! Food then quickly came - but promptly sent back as the food was cold. A manager appeared. To the... More

I never understand we this place isn't mobbed. Great food, great beer and you can even hear to have a conversation. The deck is great during the warmer months and has a nice outdoor fireplace. We been coming here for 10 years and this is still our favorite restaurant. Oh, and did I mention that it is very reasonable too.... More

We've been here a few times, the sausages are the best we've had! All of the food has been good. When we're in the area we try to get here for dinner and a beer.

The food was excellent, very creative menu. The many variations of salads are very tasty and large enough that you are full but not stuffed. The craft beers are also great, with a great selection.

The food, service, and especially the beer, were excellent. They brew up some really tasty beers and the amber went especially well with the sliced steak and cheese on a roll - not a Philly cheesesteak but still and excellent sandwich..

Went for lunch with the family. Each of us ordered burgers. They were good but the service was terrible. we waited over 40 mins to get our food. When we went up to the hostess upon arrival she looked at us like she didn't know what to do. She didn't offer kids menu's even though they were standing right next... More
