“The Kids loved the Playground”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

The food was pretty good and the beer was fantastic. They had a lot of unusual beers that would be hard to find anywhere else. I thought the food was a little overpriced but they had a playground the kids loved. My only suggestion would be a sitting are for parents whose kids are playing on the playground.

“Lot's of micro-brews to choose from”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We stopped here after leaving Blue Mt. Brewery to check it out. No
where near as crowded and they have 80 micro-brews to chose
from! We didn't eat here but the food we saw coming out looked
very good. Lots to chose from as far as food goes and the view is spectacular off the patio. They also have a playground for the
kids which is nice.

“What a shocking discovery!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Who knew an Irish Pub would have such a yummy Sunday brunch? We were just about the only folks in there, but the staff was very accommodating and the breakfast was one of the best & most reasonably priced we found in the area. We were able to pick up a 6 pack of microbrews, too, to bring back home. Perfect!

“Great place for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

While staying at the Afton Mountain B&B, we had lunch one of the days at The Blue Toad Brewery. There we found a casual atmosphere with an extensive menu that ranged from a wide assortment of burgers with every possible accessory available to, believe it or not, heart friendly salads. My wife and I both chose the salads and both with grilled chicken which was fresh off the grill. The service was excellent. Our server mentioned that the crilled chicke would take a little longer as it was grilled to order and it was well worth the wait which wasn't all that long. The salads were delicious with fresh, local ingredients. It's obviously a popular place both for locals and for visitors to the area. A wide assortment of locally brewed beers is available as well as local Virginia wines. A very enjoyable eating experience indeed. The staff and manager were very friendly and made us want to return on our next visit to the area.

“HUGE portions, good food tho”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Too much food. The fish in the fish and chips must have been a foot long, plus the breading was very thick.
