Thinking Man Tavern is a friendly spot where locals and non locals alike can debate the days events over pints of delicious (and well thought out) craft beer, excellent cocktails and tasty food options, from little to large. The space is large and moving tables to accommodate large groups is not a problem. A multitude of board games and weekly trivia, along with an awesome jukebox provide entertainment. It's comfortable, quality and affordable. I recommend the Veggie Burger (Best in City IMHO) as well as any special they offer. The kitchen is often inspired and the staff is friendly. I've seen other reviews that knock the service and all I can say is that it must have been a really bad day. I've been coming here since it opened in 2004 or so. Great Place.

We were waiting for a brewery to open and just happened to drive by this place so we tried it out. It was a pleasant surprise. Good food and a great selection of craft beers. Plus the bartender was very friendly and made our visit more enjoyable.

A place to be really comfortable. Friendly staff, unpretentious moods with many good options for draft beers. The food is really good, a little spicy many of them but nothing you can't solve asking. Recommended!

Unpretentious atmosphere with excellent beer selection, signature dishes and friendly staff. They could use a little design-minded sprucing up, but all-in-all a great place to dine.
