“A nice brewery to relax, eat and chat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2011

Really a nice place to go out and eat. Beer is delicious.
Do not go in for anything formal. You can stay here to have beers, eat something different from a standard US meal and to relax. You could even play some billard.
Dinner is nice but also a beer is OK here...if you can stop after first beer ;)

“Service can be slow, but the atmosphere and beer are excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2011

The beer is excellent across the board. It seems to always be busy, and as a result service can be slow. It's also a little on the pricey side. But for a small bite to eat while relaxing and trying great beer, this is ideal.

“GREAT PLACE FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2010

I eat here with my family all the time. They have American food, but a menu to suite all taste buds (ie stir fry, jumbalaya, tacos, pizza). May be overpriced, but we've never had to wait to get a table, and the restaurant is very well-kept. Live music Friday and Saturday nights. I watched one Rock 'n' Roll band called the Jello Shots. They were great!

“Terrible customer service... we won't return”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2010

We have been to this restaurant numerous times in the past. Service and food had been fine. But, they must be doing so well now that they no longer care about their customers :-( . We arrived today and asked for an indoor table for four. The hostess said that she would check. She came back and told us it would be a 25 minute wait unless we wanted to sit outside (it was 90 degrees and we did not want to sit outside). She put my name on the wait list. About 2 minutes later a group of five came in. They asked for a table and at first they were told that the was only room outside... but then the hostess immediately reversed herself and said there was a table inside. They were seated. We were left waiting.

We left... and we will never go back.

By the way, there was a large group of tables (enough to sit about 10 people) immediately in front of the host desk. A table for four could have easily been created from this group of tables...evidently that was too much trouble.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2009

The Paint Creek Porter was fine, not quite a match for my usual Guinness but what's life without exploration? And, the Southern Chicken Sandwich itself was fine although really, really, boringly plated - Oh no! I've been watching too many foodie shows - a round bun with the insides inside and a pickle on the side. I opted for the Michigan Cherry Salad upgrade and this was the most disappointing, it's a $2.25 upgrade and while the toppings added to the lettuce are tasty, everything else in the bowl seemed to have been prepared well in advance and waiting in the fridge for final assembly. Not only was the bowl at fridge temp but so was the wedge of spongy uninteresting pita(?)/flatbread that came with it. It's telling the my server first brought a different salad and changed it when asked if this was 'really the Cherry salad'. Upon 'making' me a new salad, she remarked 'they look almost the same'.

All told, a casual place for a casual meal. Food and service are unremarkable as is the atmosphere and decor. There are other restaurant to explore and it's unlikely that I'll be back unless it's the choice of a group I'm with.
