Lewiston/Clarkston doesn't offer a lot in the way of choices and so if you are craving a brewpub, you will likely end up here. If you have spent anytime at any brewpubs outside this valley, don't get your hopes up. While it has a wide range if beers, none stand out. In other words, your beer drinking experience will be mediocre.

The same can be said for the food. The menu is decent (not exceptional by any means) and varied. It won't blow you away but you will leave satisfied. A word of caution for fish taco lovers though. Don't be fooled by the appetizer fish taco menu item. It's really a fish wrap and while it is quite tasty, it is not a fish taco.

The clientele is mostly 20ish aged and the atmosphere is very much a mix of a pick up scene mixed in with a sports bar. Also be forewarned that you shouldn't get your hopes of great service up too high unless you are a buxom 22 year old blond. We practically had to beg for service (too old and not on the prowl) and yet we saw the waiters/bartenders cater to women fitting a certain description.

If we weren't staying at the attached hotel, we probably would have gone elsewhere the evening we went. As it was, we opted to eat elsewhere the other nights we were there.

I didn't realize that you could still smoke indoors, but here you can! They have there own beer but it's like near beer. Food was pretty blah, burger, chicken strips, etc.

This is a great place to go and grab some beers, you name it they have it! The food is typical bar food, don't go just for the food or you will be extremely disappointed. But if you have some time to kill this is a good place to take in.

The food was good. They didn't have any mexican beer which I would have liked but everyone else was happy with the drink selection. You can still smoke here which is odd these days. The service was very good. We were there after a memorial so it was a sad occasion, but everyone had a good time. It seemed very quiet for a Saturday night but we left by 930

OK, Lewiston is a "redneck" town with lots of fast-food places and "dive" restaurants. There are no restaurants with quality food & service and quiet atmosphere outside of THIS place; This is the best place to eat in town, bar none. Top notch.
