I didn't like the overwhelming smell of malt as I entered the place, but it is a brewpub. Staff was courteous, but not real friendly. Beer okay, nothing too special for a beer pub. Been there, probably won't be back.

The microbrews were excellent and the food was delicious. I had the beet and steak salad and thought it was perfect. The gentlemen behind the bar provided excellent and friendly service.

Needed a place to eat for lunch, every place was so busy. We had a nice table to sit at and time to look over the menu. The pretzel with beer cheese sauce was very good. The soup of the day was very thick, but...More
