My chicken wrap was tasty. Service was poor. Appeared to be only one waitress for the afternoon lunch crowd and she wasn't very attentive. I had to mosey up to the bar to pay my bill. They started up the brew vats (cleaning?) and it became very noisy. Some patrons moved to tables outside. Luckily, the weather wasn't bad.

Ruth McGowan's Brew Pub is a great place for food and home brewed beer/ale. The food is always good and plentiful. Prices are reasonable and the brews are great.
Try Caroline's Blond Ale!!

Cloverdale seems very sleepy at night. We wanted casual and found it. Only the bar part was open, but the waitress was friendly and the patty melt worked well. Surprisingly expensive considering location....

This brewpub had seven of its ales on tap, and I tried the lot. They do 4oz tasters at $1.50 a glass so its not an expensive night. But beware, some are potent - the Monster Brown Ale has an ABV of 7.6% and even the moreish Cloverdale (amber) Ale is 5.8%.

The food was good - we had two variations of burgers - and the portions were generous.

The only downside is that they don't serve spirits. My wife thought one of their wine based cocktails could have done with a vodka kick.
