“Awesome food and beer”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I went for a couple of nights to the finger lakes and we started our excursion here. The food was phenomenal and I am picky. We did a beer trail tour and frankly, this beer was the best that we had even though it wasn't on our tour. I highly recommend this place if you're in the finger lakes region.

“Many choices of food and beer”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

Many options on menu. Should be able to satisfy everyone in your party. We started with the corn fritters (with a great sweet pepper dipping sauce), shared a pizza and salad and had more than enough. Service was good, not rushed and very polite. Many craft beer choices, all well described on the menu.

“Perhaps if I had been there for the beer...”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

After a morning of wineries, I was in the mood for lunch but not for beer. It appears that this place makes its repuation on pairing beer with basic food items. Since I sklipped that perhaps they never had a chance. My wife and I ordered burgers and we both commented they were more like Bubba Burgers than gormet burgers. We did however sit in the table in the front window and watch the NASCAR fans departing the town so if you can get that table it makes up for the mediocre food. Or have a beer or two and write a better review.
