Really, get a designated driver and taste the brewed on site collection of first class beers they have to offer. The food is inconsistent. There is really nothing above average. No real signature dish or app to speak of. Burgers are ho hum and pricey....More

This place used to have better days and was always full. Nowadays it seems it's mostly empty many times, too bad. They have decent food selection and fast service. Beer selection is very good and is of course brewed right there behind the glass so...More

We ate lunch there while in the area. Friendly staff, good food, and a great selection of brews. My wife loved the lentil salad with shrimp, and the pulled pork sandwich was also very good. Good fries too. Better than your average brew pub.
