We did not eat here, only had a few drinks. The staff was great, very informative on the local area. The beer selection was also very good. Real laid back and comfortable atmosphere.

This is not a "sports bar" but they have several TV's and most seats have a decent view (except for the hanging lights) of one of the TV's. We stopped in to watch a college football game and have a couple of beers. We didn't order any food, but the beer selection was quite large. Nice atmosphere and decor, more upscale than most sports bars. Even though quite a few of the patrons were watching the game, they do not turn up the sound. It is not a large place, so we were surprised that we easily found a seat in the bar. We will go back and try dinner some time!

I went with a large group of people and we had 2 tables. Our table had a great time. We loved all of the beers on tap and our server was very knowledgeable about all the beers they offered. The menu was small, but what they had sounded good. Most of us got burgers and I thought mine was delicious. My brother in law ordered a pizza, and they ended up bringing him the wrong kind of pizza and he didn't realize until a few bites in. He said it wasn't bad, but he was craving what he had ordered. We were all hungry so he didn't say anything to the server and just finished the pizza he was given. The ambiance is really cool and we had a great time at our table. However, after dinner our family at the other table next to us said that they didn't care for their meals and that the service for them was lousy. My uncle ordered the same burger I did, and while I thought mine was delicious, he said something tasted funny about it and he didn't finish his. Sure enough, in the middle of the night, I woke up with awful stomach cramps. I can't be sure if it was from the burger, but for the whole rest of the trip my uncle kept saying "See! I told you something was off with that burger!" Oh well, at least we had a great time.

We tried someplace new this visit to Traverse City. It was advertised an "Oktoberfest" celebration, so we thought a good Oktoberfest beer and some local food sounded great. We stopped in at 12:05 and was told by staff they were not open until Noon. Check your watch! Totally not prepared for serving! We tripped over the girl on the floor writing on the menu chalkboard, squeezed by the other staff folding shirts on a table at the front door. I made a joke, about it being after Noon, and that they would have to let us in........dead pan response, no welcome, nothing. Having never been there we did not know where to sit or the information that it is self serve in the front, full service in the back and Oktoberfest celebration outside in the back. Later other people also greeted the same way and kinda just stumbled in. The waitress was friendly and explained the beer choices. ALSO NO OKTOBERFEST BEER!!! It was Saturday and they just opened to celebrate, but NO BEER. Other choices of course available. We had Tomato Soup, it was tasty, but lukewarm when it arrived and cold by the time we finished it. The sandwich was very good. The outside area was not set up AT ALL, totally unprepared, so that is why we ate inside. The atmosphere is nice, taproom, clean and chic. Bathrooms clean. May or may not try this place again.
