Really good beer! We also had the cheese fondue and the pork belly - both fantastic! Great service and a nice and laid-back atmosphere. We found it because it was close to our hotel, if we lived near it would definitely somewhere we’d go back...More

Friendly staff, quick service. Wonderful shrimp and grits. Peanut butter Porter is fantastic! The server kept bringing us tastes of other beers. Most of them were delicious. Whatever your beer tastes are, I'm sure you'll find a favorite.

Stopped in on a whim as we love microbrews. What a great place! Beer selection albeit only their brews was diverse and perfect for any palate. Only had the Brussel sprouts and they were on point.

We went to this restaurant for lunch as it is a very short walk from the BW Bayside Inn. This place makes its own beer. My friend enjoyed the dark beer from the brewery. The food was also good. I had the fish and chips...More
