Beer was pretty good. I sat at the back bar, took a while for the bartender to notice me, but once she finished with her phone, she took my order. Decent place, but a lot of choices in the area.

Large place with two different bars; the back bar has their house brewed beers. Good menu. I got the burrito and it was huge! Kids would be okay in off hours when it’s not crowded. Nice service. Average prices.

Pretty long list of beers and everything I tried was good. I had the nachos with brisket and the were fantastic. Bartender was very help and attentive. Fun, younger vibe. You need to look for Local signs...Resident is against the back wall.
