“Fun, excellent salads, excellent beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

I loved this place - we went here twice during Artprize and the beer selection was amazing - so many draft choices, mostly local. Their salads were so tasty and healthy! The atmosphere was great - big bar, busy restaurant w great current music playing in the background. I liked here much much more than Founders bc of its atmosphere and food selection. The service was great both times.

“Love this place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

48 beers on tap and I couldn't try them all,lol.
They really need to add some sample sizes to the menu so I can try more next time I visit.
Had the burger and beer special but I am not a fan of the brioche bun or whatever they call it.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Visted last night for the second time this month while traveling throught the area. Huge selection of beer. The mussels are amazing as are the crack fries. The salads are also very good. Service is good and atmosphere is fun. Nice patio area if you would like to sit outside. Great place to meet friends and relax.
