I love coming here as there is such a great selection of their beers and food choices. You can try this beer or that beer before purchasing one. You have to try as they have some that you can't get anywhere else. You must go

I've been here before for banquets but never for a relaxing meal with friends. Both the food and service were great. Cajun chips are tasty, for those who like a bit of spice!

Very nice local restaurant. Comfortable decor and good food. I had a burger without a bun as cutting back on carbs. The meat and flavor was so good.

Had another wonderful visit on a busy Friday evening. Reservations recommended. Food was very good and fresh craft beers even better. Decor is warm and inviting. Love going here.

I've visited the Onion Pub a number of times and it's always been great. At a previous visit, we had one of the best gourmet burgers ever. On my most recent visit, I stopped at the bar for a Beggars Brown, one of the Onion's...More
