service is poor and the food is not much better. We won't be going back. Thanks but no thanks.

Found this in a shopping plaza and was blown away. Their beers were amazing, and the food was even better. We had one of their burger options and the salmon --- both were unbeatable.

Full marks for food quality and atmosphere. However... Service was ridiculos. Met here with a few friends from out of town and wanted to treat them to a good meal and a few drinks so I decided to being then to the Brewpub, sadly I wish I never had. The good food was trumped by the POOR service we received all night. Not sure why. Pub wasn't busy, just very lousy service

I want to like this place, I really do but you know, no matter how hard I try I can't. The food is good, somewhat erratic but generally good. It's a neat room, especially in the winter with the fireplace. So whats my problem!? The service. Wow, I've been here easily 10 times to meet friends, birthdays, whatever and every time, every time we get bad service. And it's not just me, it's always our entire group, and honestly I'm not that picky, I'm not hard to please. Relatively quick, friendly and accurate service is all I want. Well, I never get it here. Staff are rude, incredibly slow and regularly forget, or make errors with the orders. I've had it. No more. Try the Fox and Hounds, Crow and Gate, or even the Black Bear. Longwood BrewPub with it's smug little brew pub attitude isn't worth the grief.

In spite of a disappointing previous experience, we returned for their Sunday Buffet Brunch, and were pleased with our decision. At $18.00, including non-alcoholic beverages, it is probably one of the better brunch values around. The quantity of choices was certaily adequate, and the food quality was quite good. The only disappointment was that the benny's had a tomato slice in place of ham, back bacon or salmon. There appeared to a a good ratio of servers and the buffet also appeared to be kept refreshed.
