We had looked into where to go in Mineral Point and were very excited to go to Brewery Creek Brewpub. We went on a Thurs at about 1:30 in the afternoon. There were only 6 or 7 people in there yet we still stood at the door in front of the "Please Wait To Be Seated Sign" for 3 or 4 minutes. When the waitress did come up let's just say she was less then friendly. "2 for lunch?" is all she said walked to table dropped the menues and walked away. We considered leaving but since we had been so looking forward to going there decided to give her a pass and press on. It took nearly 5 minutes to ask us about drinks and then another 10 after the drinks came to take our order. Not once after our order was taken until the time it came did she come back, see if we needed a refill on iced tea nothing, by the way my husbands empty glass was sitting on the edge of the table for about 10 of those minutes. She did finally ask if we wanted refills after the food came. The food was definately star here, we both had there bacon cheese burgers and they were to die for. When the bill came and it was almost $30 for 2 burgers/fries and two iced teas I was shocked to say the least. Apparently the Brewpub does not give refills on soft drinks/iced tea. It may have said that in the menu but who looks for that and where now do you go where you do not get refills for free.

We went to Brewery Creek specifically because we're into microbrews. If you rate it simply as a restaurant, it was a nice, slightly upscale, catering to high maintenance tourists sort of place, with corn souffle and Belgian Chips (which were very good), and these wonderful sesame seed buns for the sandwiches. If you're going just for the beer, well, first of all they don't sell flights so that you can see what you like before you order. Our waitress told us that the owner doesn't do flights "unless he knows that someone is going to order more". Wow. In a place that calls itself a brewpub, really? Most places charge more for a flight that it costs for one beer and you typically get equal to a standard pint. That said, we managed to convince her to get us samples and then ended up ordering two beers apiece. The best beer we had was a Porter, which was one of the best American Porters we've ever had because it wasn't unduly befouled with coffee and chocolate.

My husband and I had eaten a large breakfast and weren't planning on eating, but one look at the delightful dishes going past us encouraged us to split lunch. Since it was my choice, I chose the Pesto Portabella Sandwich. Great mix of flavors that all worked well. They could have used a bigger bun because there was a lot of sandwich. We included the Belgian Fries and they were sinful! Add to that a couple of really good beers (I had the Cream Ale and my husband had the Mild). Highly recommended!

Really like the jalapeno cheese curds as an app and the fries are best I have ever had.

Expected decent beer at a pub but the salmon was a surprise. Definitely up-scale food at reasonable prices and bountiful quantities.
