We ended up walking out. It was a seat yourself at the time. No one acknowledged us, a couple waiters walked by several times and still didn't acknowledge us. We sat there for at least 10 minutes before we walked out. The menu wasn't even that great anyway. Do yourself a favor, go to one of the many other restaurant... More

I went here after work with my other comrades to have a beer & burger. We were staying at the Marriott, within walking distance. The food & service was good.

Meet a group of people at the Backpocket on a Friday night to have a birthday boot of beer. Good variety of beers, and all we tried were good. Good service and atmosphere, no loud music so we could have normal conversations which was a plus. Food options are very limited. I have had the pizza before and it was... More

Well...it's not Big Grove. Great beer. Great beer selection. Nice ambiance and outdoor seating. Food is just not great at all. If you want both great beer and food, go to Big Grove instead.

The Stonefired Grill pizza was awesome. We were also able to take advantage of buy 1 get 1 free tap beers. Very reasonably priced, with great service.

Great beer of all sorts. Great individual size pizzas. I think the individual size now could feed two. Love the pork Belly bites. We always come back

This is one of the first breweries I visited as a new beer drinker, and come back to it often simply for its location. As my palate has expanded, however, I've found that most of their beers have a flavor element in common that seems out of place. Their lighter beers are usually good, such as the Hawktoberfest and Pennywhistle,... More

We went here in December 2016. This is a great place. There were lots of unique menu and beer choices. I enjoyed an IPA and my sister had a stout. Both were excellent. I really liked the interior; it has exposed steam pipes as part of the decor. There were also tvs to show the latest sporting events. A cool... More

The menu has drastically reduced, including the mouthwatering dessert. Only one staff person waiting on everyone, the bartender. He seemed put out having to wait on us, not friendly. Visited table twice, in a rush. Had to coax him back to give food order. He was obviously overwhelmed. He mentioned that the owners were there. If they were, they should... More
