“Good grub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

No room on the patio for early dinner but we had a great booth inside with a huge open window. They were out of the first three items I ordered, so I got a regular burger. I like meat to be cooked well done and sometimes it is charred to the max, but the cook got this one perfect. The fries were also good. My husband had a three-chile hamburger that was very good and the homemade root beer but he said it was nothing special.

“Better Than Before”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

Loved the food! 2 had sliders, 1 had mushroom and truffle burger, 1 garden salad with chicken, 1 ribs, 1 mozzarella caprese sandwich. We all thought the food was delicious. We did start with fried pickles and we all thought they were not the best rendition-batter like what fish would be dipped in and it kind of had a fishy taste. Daughter did not care for ribs but that was because she did not like flavor of sauce-son liked them. Ordered take out another night and one had the Elk Bolognese which he described as tasty and one had the ancient grains salad which was spectacular!

Service was great when we dined in. When phone in order, order taker was a little rude. Would still visit again.

“Great beer and tasty food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

Stopped in with the family for some brews and food. Tried three different beers and the root beer. All super good. Food was great, a little slow getting out. Deli burger and BLT were great along with the green chili. The kids menu was nice but the grilled cheese was a little crispy and hurt the top of my kids mouth.

“Bland food, below average service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

We just had lunch here based on a recommendation from someone who ate here a year ago. It has apparently changed. Our party had tacos, Mac and cheese, chicken strips, chili, and fried pickles and fries. The fried pickles and the fries were the best things, the chili was OK, chicken strips OK, everything else was really bland. Server was friendly but not very attentive. Would not eat there again.

“Good brew and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

Just had lunch here yesterday. Great selection of IPAs and local brew. In fact they brew right on premises so if you sit outside you will smell the hops.
Not much of a vegetarian choice for those who chose that cuisine. Burgers are fresh and meat is organic.fries are hand cut and also fresh. Our server was quick, friendly and attentive.
I would say this is a good choice-located off the main drag so just ask.
Enjoy!
