“Felt like a chain restaurant/brewery”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

Poor service, average food and drink - move on to Wild Wolf or Blue Mountain if you are interested in good microbrewed beer.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

Their Virginia Mystery Brew was the best American made beer I've ever had, and their Pulled Pork BBQ sandwich was one of the best I've ever had as well. Sit outside and take in the sun and view!

“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

The tastings were great and the beer is excellent--stylistically different from all the other local breweries so that adds a nice contrast.

“Typical pub food with good beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012

Whoever writes the menu here does a great job with descriptions, but the food is basic pub in the long run. A great brewery in the area with excellent beer. It's a favorite of many.
