We were a party of nine with four under age thirteen. Between the menu and the very helpful waitstaff we all had smiles by the end of the meal. Chicken wings, corn dogs, two different salads were great shared apps. The pulled pork sandwiches were tasty and inventive. The fries were served with many choices of dipping sauces - all terrific. I particularly liked the fresh peppers as a garnish.

Since I don't know one fancy beer from another, I was helped by our server who knew her way around. One note: there needs to be some prices available for the beers before ordering. We had two large bottles of beer that were more than thirty dollars a piece. We would have ordered anyway but we should have known.

Service is fast and pleasant. Again, a small note, if you are a high end restaurant, be prepared to clear the utensils between courses, not put dirty forks on the table.

We will happily return for another great meal.

As others have mentioned, the setting takes you by surprise. The walk in cooler has been cleverly designed as a beer display wall, with many interesting selections. This is a casual spot with delicious, eclectic pub type fare but with innovative twists. Our group tried the burgers and fries, which were phenomenal, the pulled pork sandwich, also very good, the chicken tacos which were amazing, and the garlicy greens in a glass ( delicious) and a fantastic grilled iceberg lettuce and bacon salad. Excellent food and a lot of fun... what a welcome change from the dreary outdated restaurants that typically dominate the scene around the lakes region.... reminded me a bit of Nosh in Portland. Carry out seems to be an option as well, but we were happy to dine in at a picnic table...

Fabulous made from scratch food that is to die for. The service is impecable, and they make you feel like they've known you forever! This is just what the area needed as the owners are not looking to steal their customers just bring a nightlife to the area and share their patrons. My only issues was the fact that the larger bottled beers which you can split between two is typically $15.00, that's a bit much as a nice draft elsewhere would not be that pricey. The all natural sodas, fresh ingredients really make this place! Love this place!!!!!!

What a surprise - a healthy, innovative, farm-to-table menu for a restaurant that's part of (and directly behind) a Mobil Station! Decorated part industrial, part picnic bench in a park, it works and why not? Gas station convenience stores with take-out food are not my cup-of-tea but the Gastropub is. Although you can take out - I suggest eating at the restaurant - it's part of the experience! Food is served on silver metal trays or in light cardboard boxes - not your typical serving fare. You can share a picnic table with people you don't know and start a conversation or just glance at the food they're eating if you can't decide what to order and seeing the food helps you decide.

Fun place to eat with great food and really cool people that make you feel so welcomed. These guys are a happening crew with cutting edge foods not typically found in a town like bridgeton. They stay open late and have a great selection of beers. It's also fun to watch peoples faces when the come in to pay for their gas and are totally shocked to be walking into a gastropub! They love the juxtaposition! Eat the fries with the roasted garlic aoli and a warm grilled salad. You won't be sorry.
