We have visited here several times. The food is pretty good, brat and beer with waffle fries, what's not to like! The bacon chilli jam is very hot but tasty. We like the beer and often get a growler or some beers to take out....More

The food was good, beer was excellent and great employees. GREAT place to meet up with friends for a nice evening out with good food and a wonderful variety of beers.

I can recommend the Buffalo Chicken Salad, it was yummy! They have hamburgers, fish and chips, and something for most everyone's taste buds. They have bands that play in the evening, so check the schedule. People are friendly.
