We stopped in to check out this cute Brewery in Madison, Ohio - we had heard good things. We stopped in during lunch on a Thursday, the restaurant was not overly busy (about 20 customers) yet we waited a very long time to get service, our food, and drink refills. We watch three other groups come and go (that came after us). Once we did get our food, it was very good. I had a grilled chicken sandwich with avocado, bean sprouts, lettuce, tom on ciabatta which I really enjoyed.

Skip the house chips - they are not really good and tasteless - it is worth the up-charge to get fries. We recommend the onion rings, very good. Our other meals buffalo chicken wrap (ok, nothing special), chicken salad melt which was good, and a burger - average. We also tried three of the beers - they were good, but not remarkable. Skip the Grindstone Gold - we did not care for it at all. The IPA was good though.

Overall, we glad we are checked it out - we have family that live there - they (and us) aren't sure we are too inspired to go back.

My husband, the family beer connoisseur, thought the beer was good. I liked the creative flavors. Fairly typical bar food, maybe above average. Although not very busy, the waitstaff could have been a bit more attentive. We seemed to wait a little too long before seeing anyone between the time we sat down before our waitress came, between our lunch being served and definitely before we got her attention to get our bill. Otherwise, it's a very neat building remodel and has a nice view of the main street.

This is a nice little brewery. Appetizers and beers were very good. Very nice atmosphere as well.
