This was the worst food I think I’ve ever had! Everyone in my party agreed. I don’t usually leave a review if any kind, but in this case I felt I had to!

Not as impressed as I had hoped. Beer was fine but not a very broad selection. We went on a weekday afternoon and it was busy but not packed. Service was acceptable and they seemed to be busy and not able to give much attention...to patrons. Maybe they are focusing more on the food as we were just at the bar for a break from walking in town. Upon leaving saw that they had a bigger area in the back that probably would have been more enjoyable than were we were at the bar.More

Family of 3 visiting the area for the first time! We stopped in because we are avid craft beer drinkers. We ordered a flight, cheese fries, beef nachos, 2 kids burger and 1 adult burger. Everything was great. Service was good and overall an enjoyable...experience. Another pro is it’s on Main Street so fun day!More

I had the 'Uberbacken Schweineschnitzel'; Seasoned Pork Chop, Cheddar & Swiss Cheese, Green/Red Bell Peppers, Mushrooms, Apple Cider Cream Sauce, Mashed Potatoes & Spicy Green Beans. My Wife ordered the Cheddar Ale Soup made Daily with Sharp Cheddar Cheese & Award Winning Ale served in...a Bread Bowl. ---Pork Chop was Deliciousness with lots of Flavor in Every Bite. One HUGE Boneless Pork Chop that was Very Tender & Tasty. LoVe those Spicy Green Beans, had them before and they are the Best Green Beans Ever. My Wife really liked her Bread Bowl - very Creamy Cheddar Ale Soup and the Bread was Fresh, Soft and Delicious. Sammi was our Awesome Server and earned the 'Dollar-Bow-Tie' Award. Ate there again and had their 'Sausage Sampler' made in Fredericksburg. One Link of Knackwurst, Bratwurst & Pepperwurst. Served with 2-Sides, chose Mashed Potatoes & Red Cabbage. My Wife had their Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich served with French Fries. ---There is nothing better than a Good Ol'Wurst' of any kind and these 3-Knocked my socks off. They were 'Wurstlyliciousness' - Very Very Good. LoVe those Mashed Potatoes and that Red Cabbage has the Best Flavor - that's some really good stuff. My Wife LoVed her Philly and said it was Delicious and Flavorful. Perla was our Outstanding Server and earned the 'Dollar-Bow-Tie' Award. ---Our Beer were also Very Good. I ordered their 'Beer Flight' consisting of 8-Beers (now that's a Flight). I'm not into the Red or Dark Beers but 'ALL' of these were Very Tasty with no After-Bitter-Bite-Back with any of them - and that's a Win-Win for me. (see the photo listing all these beers - and their Carta Verde not listed) To Us, this is one of the Best Places to Eat and Enjoy Cold Beers - and their Beers are Really Good. I Love Meatloaf and don't rave about Restaurants Meatloaf, but F.B.C. has a Great Tasting Meatloaf - Love It.More

Enough beer choices but not over whelming. We had the pretzel and Scottish Egg. Both were really good. Wish we would have ate here instead of another restaurant as the food coming out looked really good.

I had a flight of the 7 beers that they were offering. Quality was a little above average. I liked the Not-so-Blonde ale, Hefeweizen and Pioneer Porter. The others were pretty forgettable. We sat at the bar and also had a soft pretzel which was...ok. Service was average. Not a destination brewery but a good stop if you get tired of sampling wine.More

The atmosphere was nice for the family. Our server Carlos was very welcoming and made us feel comfortable. Our appetizers where delicious and hot when they came out. Our friend was cool to perfection. We will definitely be back.

We had a big group of 14 that wanted to dine here for dinner. They don't take reservations but some of our group went a bit before our meetup time for dinner and had to really plead with them to pull enough tables together. All...but 2 members of our group arrived and were seated. The server was nice, probably could have had a second one as our group was large. We ordered drinks, they only had 4 beers that night, they do serve some local wines but not a lot. Our food eventually came out, the one server brought it all in the course of several trips out from the kitchen. I had the Pork Schnitzel with a mushroom gravy sauce and a side of onion rings. I was not so impressed with the food, the pork had been over fried so was dry and the batter coating was greasy and had that taste of old grease in the fryer. The onion rings were also overdone and greasy.More

We visited for lunch and the beers were very good. My brother had the 7 beer sampler so we shared a few he didn't drink. The German food was very good and my brothers thought the scotch eggs were the best they've had (I hadn't...had one before). We thought the prices were reasonable as well.More

The waitress (Gaelynne) made the visit what it was!! She helped us choose our beer and she was right on! Suggested not choosing one type as wasn’t quite aged enough. The beers were great! We weren’t super hungry and again her selection to assist me...was perfect. Had the Cheddar soup that was so good. Husband had the Rueben sandwich which was very tasteful. Many thanks!More

On a recent trip we stop by for a few pints and then later went for dinner and a few more pints. Very average brewery and the food was even more average. Next time we’re in town if we stop by we will have a...few pints but nothing to eat. I would take a pass on eating here.More

Best dog food I’ve had in quite some time! Not only was the food salty but so was our server. Only 5 beers on the menu and out of one. They served the food cold and no silverware or napkins on the table so we...got to watch our food get even colder. Absolutely terrible food and experience.More

We never made reservations. I don't think you need them. It should not be too crowded unless you are there on a week-end.

It's street parking on Main St. and the side streets. During the week, parking isn't bad. But, you may have to walk further on a weekend.

Yes, please call the restaurant. They may have special menu not on the website. They have an excellent location on Main right in the midst of town in a lovely old building with courtyard out back.
