My husband is a burger snob. He and I agreed we had our best burgers ever here. They are made to order, served on a pretzel bun, and illegally juicy. Will caution it’s hard to get a seat and you order at the counter, but...More

The food was fabulous and staff was very courteous and attentive. Jeremy was very knowledgeable on the beer and wine and always made great suggestions. The brussel sprouts were out of this world! We will definitely be back.

Attended Zwanze Day 2018 at this wonderful establishment. The staff was incredible. They were friendly, helpful, and loved beer as much as those that they served. 10/10. I wish I lived closet to enjoy their aged cheddar grits every morning.

Stopped in for dinner not really knowing too much about the place but was pleasantly surprised! Walked inside and asked a waiter what was the deal, he said grab a seat, order at the bar and enjoy. We did just that, sat at a high...More

It is mainly pub fare. I think the menu rotates, but when I went they had fantastic mussels, some burgers, quail, charcuterie etc. Not a traditional dinner menu, but definitely some tasty options to go with the crazy good... More
