If you are looking for a selection of beers accompanied by a burger or small selection of sandwiches or appetizers...this is the place for you. We both ordered the burgers and they were just ordinary, not bad but nothing special. Fries were good and service fine. I did think the room was a bit too dark for my taste.

Nice selection of home-made beers. The food, including burgers, fries, and onion rings, were great. Since remodeling parts of the building, the atmosphere seems a little mismatched. It is a true local experience and a great dive bar for visiting city folks.

If you want local, great beer, food, and an outstanding staff, make a showing here. Always specials to be tried and their burgers are fantastic. Again, if you want a great local experience, stop on by.

This place was presented in some booklets as an historic tavern, but only the beer brewing aspect goes back to the 1880's. Don't come here just for the food. There were nothing but sandwiches, fries, onion rings. No salads or entrees. Poor service and noisy. If you like craft beer, you would probably like it.

It was so hard to decide what to eat! The selections are varied and all are delicious. The craft beer was delicious. Yes, it's a pub but very good pub food!! Service was great and the waitress was very friendly and funny!

Great local pub with a nice beer selection and the typical fried food. This place is always hopping and everyone is very friendly, especially after a few cold ones. I love mixing the WV Wheat and Raspberry Wheat. Definitely take a growler to go!

I eat here usually once a week. I've never ordered anything I didn't like. Everything is good! Craft beer is great too. Sometimes if they are busy service is slower. But overall great food and atmosphere. Recent renovations have made the interior nicer.

The brew is good. The food is merely pub food and not much to shout about. The ambience is lacking. It's dark, lacks personality and could use some updating. Service was very good.

Food was ok There aren't many dining options in Parkersburg WVA. Most restaurants serve lots of fried food--burgers and hot dogs.
