I had dinner with my wife and adult son here recently. This was our first visit to Cigar City Brewpub. Other reviews and a friends comments that the food was substandard had kept me away, but I had recently read some newer reviews that many of the early problems had been addressed and the food was now much better. I decided to find out for myself, because as a craft beer lover, what could be better than great beer and good food. I will start out by saying that the beer was fantastic, just as expected. I ordered the lamb lollipops (lamb rib) and they were very good, tender and flavorful. I would get them again. The side items, fingerling potato's and greens were not very good and I did not take more than one or two bites. My wife had the braised short rib and it was very good. The meat was so tender it almost melted in your mouth. The side items were okay, not memorable. My son had the fish tacos (swordfish) which are served cold, and they were the best fish tacos I have ever tasted. Overall we had a great experience here, but they do need to work on the side dishes. As I stated in the beginning, the beer was top notch and the meats were delicious and well prepared. I will definitely return here for both the beer and the food. I only hope that the management of Cigar City Brewpub reads this review and fixes the little things (side items). Just keep brewing some of the best beer in the area, you have the right idea here.
