“Soso food, poor service”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Waited almost an hour for food after ordering then it was only lukewarm, but was properly cooked and tasted fine. Our server abandoned us after bringing drinks, and after waving him down, the manager came by promising our food in 2 minutes then didn't see her again either. Probably won't return, too many other ( good ) restaurants in Gsinesville

“Great Food and Beer”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Great food and beer at a clean restaurant. They have great tomato soup. The menu is large and the majority of it is great. Mostly the service is good but the kitchen was a little slow.

“Overpriced and Overrated”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Our party of four ate here on a Sunday evening. The server took an extremely long time to take our drink order. My father ordered the 5.95 side salad and appetizer plate. The side salad looked like the Fresh Express bagged salad with two small slices of tomato and cucumber. My husband ordered the Fish n Chips and his fries came cold. I ordered the seared ahi tuna salad and it came without the required salad dressing. All of our food seemed very bland. Multiple times we had to get out of our seat in order to get the attention of our server. We ordered the apple berry crumble and beignet for dessert. The crumble wasn't really a crumble, but had toasted granola that was actually blackened. The beignet was not good either. Our bill totaled over $70.00 for food that tasted as if it was reheated from the freezer. Save your money and enjoy better food by visiting a restaurant like Chili's or Texas Roadhouse. The beer is nice. Only eat at this restaurant if you would like to drink the beer. Save money on food.

“A bit noisy, but good food & great service”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

I met a friend here on a busy Friday night. I was seated quickly, and our server, Michelle, was extremely helpful in suggesting menu items and delivering our food quickly and with attention to detail. I had a wonderful chicken salad and iced tea - very refreshing and well presented. If you like beer, this is a great place, as they have many brands, most on tap.
