“Nice Atmosphere but That's It”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

The place wasn't crowded so thought I'd give it a try. The inside is fabulous, open and solid wood furnishings. My waitress came promptly and that's where the experience turned. I ordered a simple appetizer and it took about a half hour to reach me and when it did, it was overcooked and cold. When I didn't finish my meal the waitress was concerned, talked to the manager and they absolutely made things right.

I'll try it again because they were so nice about it. Might have just been an off day for the cook.

“Good fish and chips! Friendly, efficient service, too!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We were here at lunch hour and chose to eat in the bar. Even though it was extremely busy, service was efficient and friendly. The fish and chips did not disappoint. The Belgian white beer was yummy!

Great brew pub with great tasting beer- had the lightest beer called Kolsch and had to go back everyday just to have one! Great food and atmosphere, great staff.

“Good food”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Food and service was good - music was loud and since it was some sort of open mic contest, the music was not always good.

“Very nice place to eat”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Food is good and the prices were fair. If you like things a little quieter, ask for a seat in the dining section as opposed to the open bar area.
Actually ended up eating here several times across my week-long stay due to the fact that it was really hard to find American-cuisine based restaurants in the city.
