At a loss for a place to grab lunch, and as a newcomer to Lawrence, I gravitated to a brewpub. Luckily, I found Free State just opening for the day. We had the opportunity to chat with the waitress who was from our part of the country, and we shared a good conversation while she worked and the customers filled the pub. The food was really good, the beer was also. I would go there whenever I'm within an hour's drive, and would consider it time well spent.

Food is great with lots of variety. Wide range of craft beers to suit all tastes. The place is extremely popular and always bustling and loud. Not good for conversation. Call ahead to place your name on the waiting list.

Definitely one of my favorite places to go alone or take family when they visit. This is a lively place full of Lawrence locals who come here for the company and beer jugs of fresh brew you can take home. If you are craving some good background noise and a friendly atmosphere, here's your spot. They offer a wide variety of dishes, all fresh and served hot by great staff. Outside seating is offered, but ( and this is one of two drawbacks) the smokers take up the front patio so you don't want to eat out there and even getting in the front door is an experience in second-hand smoke. The other drawback: as a Lawrence Original, they should honor Lawrence Giveback.

I had lived in Lawrence for 5 years and never found a place as cool and with as good eats as Free State. Awesome beer selection, wonderful atmosphere. I try to go back every chance I get!

Even if you don't drink beer, the Free State Brewing Company in Lawrence, KS is must stop. The food is always very good and the service is top notch. Their beers aren't bad either! ;-)
