Did not disappoint. Great food, great beer, and great service. Food is high quality, creative, and quick. Atmosphere is very comfortable for couples, family, or friends. Love this place. Ask for Brandy as your server...she is the best!

I LOVED this place..... until they changed the menu about 2 weeks ago. They USED to have many entrees to choose from. NOW, it is a simple 1 page menu with nothing on it except for burgers and pizza. I can go anywhere for bar...More

I've been to the Onion many times. I've enjoyed quite a few beers and meals there and really like the atmosphere. It is a great place to get a meal or a couple beers.
