Had high expectations for this place and was stunned by the indifferent kitchen. My daughter's lunch came with a plate that contained a mix of frozen and cooked waffle fries. The good news is they wash the lettuce, the bad news is they don't properly drain it, resulting in a watery caeser salad. I ordered the shrimp wrap that was... More

We had drinks and appetizers and it was pricey. The beer was home brewed and was good, but the appetizers were not much in quantity and size. All in all was a good place to visit and rest after a walk

The setting for this brewery could not be more delightful and the interior is pleasing as well. Beer is awesome, but the food was pricy and not worth the money. We have had a more enjoyable experience at lunch, but this visit was dinner and none of us seemed Wowed like we were during our lunch visit. Still worth checking... More

We stopped in to grab a sandwich and sample some local brews. There were about a dozen on tap and we ordered a couple of sampler flights (four 5 oz. samples), 7.50 to 10.50 depending on the gravity of the beers. The beers were uniformly good, the ESB and stout were outstanding. The pub-type food was delicious and reasonably priced.... More

Small dining room plus cute patio. When we went it was too hot to be outside, so we asked for a dining room table. Inside is nice, but the floor was DISGUSTING! We just went in for some apps to hold us over until dinner and while we were waiting I watched the busser push all of the crumbs and... More

I am sorry you feel my business was not up to your standards , we do try very hard to clean at every step along the way. our health department score is actually higher now, we were reinspected the day after you came in. We have a 98.5% , so I don't and apparently the health department doesn't think we... More

Fabulous food and very fun beers! We ate here twice and had the same waitress! The first evening she was awesome and the second she seemed very stressed. We requested her and I don't think we were in her "section" and seemed a little put-out. The food was fantastic both times!

What a great place for craft beer and good food. The outdoor cafe is wonderful with loads of flowers. Israel our waiter made us feel like we were at home. Try the crab and spinach quiche, delicious. Great town to visit and browse all the stores. Don't miss the local artists store.

I didn't have a chance to eat here.....but I can tell you the atmosphere was great...loved how they repurposed the house. I personally didn't care for the beer...but that's me.

Bottom line is their beer has all the right ingredients but the Meister doesn't know how to finish them. Shrimp and grits is actually shrimp and polenta. The drink menu is on the table but they bring and take away food menu. So pick a dessert when you order your entree. Very overpriced for the food served. The place is... More
