“Good thing they have good beer...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2010

We ordered guacamole but the chips it came with have lost their crunch. Guacamole wasn't bad at all but it's hard to appreciate guacamole if the chips are verging on soggy.

“Tipping issues”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2010

I recently ate luch at this restaurant and had no problems with the food, or service.
What I did have a problem with is the way the eatery went about their "suggestion" for the tip.
On the bottom of the bill is a notation which shows what the percentage will be for the "Total" of the bill. that is---- 15% or 18% or 20% etc
This percentage is based on the meal price and the TAX! Since when do patrons tip on the tax? This is an unethical way of doing business.

“Good Beer, Bar-Quality Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2010

Great place to stop in for a beer after a long hike in the Shawangunks, mediocre place for dinner, however. Lively atmosphere and spacious interior. Typical first-available table wait with buzzer pager lasts about 30-45 minutes on a Saturday evening, so you set up by the bar and grab a pint. Servers are college students, friendly and helpful.

Menu covers all the bases, ranging from standard pub fare to more pricey "Asian Braised Short Ribs" and the such. Entree prices are on the high side for a brewpub (avg food will hover around $17), but if you stick with sandwiches and pizza, you can stay under $10. Entree portions seemed a bit larger than necessary (ordered meatloaf). Cut back a bit on the plating and save the customer a couple dollars so he/she can buy more beer! Food quality was average. Wings were disappointing: crisp, but mostly consisted of fat.

Overall, we would visit again to drink a pint or two and order some appetizers. If you order dinner, be sure to pick up a growler of beer to take home... $15.
