“Great Food and Beers on Tap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Food is delicious. Blue Crab Fritters, Half Chicken, Crab Cakes, Desserts, all yummy! Variety of beers on tap. Great bread. This is a restaurant I visit whenever I'm in town. Highly recommend. Part of the Great American Restaurants. Expect wait times during peak dining hours. Knowledgeable and courteous staff.

“Pleasantly Surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

One of those stops when you are hungry and in an area you don't know. We were pleasantly surprised by the service, food and price point. It's not gourmet - but solidly good food. Suggest the half chicken or ribs. Yum.

“Great menu - tasty!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Lots of interesting options on the menu and reasonably priced. The seasonal pumpkin brew was good as well. Had a 20 minute wait or so, but you can call ahead for seating.

“Good beer; limited menu; long waits; noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

My friend loves this restaurant and wants to go here every year for her birthday. There is not a lot of variety in the food but it is good. They have nice salads, but the other "lighter fare" is limited. Their pumpkin ale for fall is quite nice. We called ahead and were told we had an hour's wait. We got there in an hour to learn it was another 35 minutes. Oy vey.

“Great Food Great Beer Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

This is service at its best. Fun atmosphere and top notch service. Staff calls you by name even if your sitting at their packed bar. Fun and friendy! The beer is great! Buy a growler to take home and refill as needed, it's worth it. The food is the Best part of all. Fresh and delicious! I have enjoyed both lunch and dinner there.
