We ate here today and all of our food was really good! We had a variety of options off the menu and we all enjoyed our picks. Portion sizes are HUGE but maybe that's just America. The only slight complaint is I felt the place was a little bit dirty. It was lunchtime and there had been loads of children... More

We hadn't been here in some time - we were blown away with the remodeling that opened up the restaurant and added new spaces. Coming soon - a rooftop bar. The food and beer was great, as usual. If you haven't stopped in for awhile, do it now!

We learned of Brewer's Alley at the visitor's center and again at Monocacy Brewing Co. We decided to go here for dinner, and we were so glad that we did. We had an excellent server who just added to an already great experience. We had the deep fried pickles for our appetizer. We were surprised to see pickle spears. They... More

The food was really good and I liked the room we were in. I could feel the history of the place (I mean that in a good way). Parking was located conveniently behind the restaurant. Next time I am there visiting I would want to try the actual restaurant for their other menu offerings.

Service can be slow. Beers are surprisingly good. I enjoyed the Resinator a double IPA. Good beer not a Dogfish but still very serviceable. Crab cake dip could stand more crab and less cheese but again not bad. Steak with mashed potatoes and cream spinach was good. Steak temperature was appropriate per my order. Biggest complaint was service. I was... More

Nice selection of entrees and beer. Desserts are excellent. We've eaten here several times and service has always been good and you get good value for your money.

Lots of fun here! Drinks were well made and not badly priced. We were here for a rehearsal diner upstairs then came down to the main bar area afterwards. It was crowded but the service was still very good. The building is very neat looking inside and out. I didn't eat however so I cannot personally comment on the food... More

Very slow service tonight and the Pizza was weak. They were not even that crowded Maybe it's the big addition on the back messing things up. My pizza took almost an hour but the waiter insisted it was only 20 minutes

This was our second visit, this time for dinner. Three of the four of us ordered crab cakes, based on previous experience at lunch. Once again, they were excellent, full of nice crab meat. The beer was excellent, I tried the New Moon Ale.

Maryland crab dip was delicious as well as my Greek style lamb burger. My husband also liked his black bean burger. They both came with shoestring fries which were excellent but we ordered the soup not the fries. Not to worry, the waitress brought over the soups to take home. Speaking of the waitress, Samantha was one of the best... More
