I'm more of a wine person myself (their selection here of wine is alright) my boyfriend prefers those craft beers and I've tried a few sips of his - alright I guess! The food is good, and they have live music once in awhile, this place has been doing pretty well since it opened 10 years ago. I would like... More

The beer was ok. My husband liked it better than I did. Their lists weren't current and the beer seemed watered down. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate the clientele. I would come back again and try the food, it looked amazing.

Nice little brewery, and not painfully noisy considering the location and its nature as a brewpub. We visited as a family get-together and the brewery did not disappoint. Plenty of brews and cocktails for selection, generous portions, and delicious flavor.

Visited the Black Lotus for the first time tonight. It was a cute bar/pub with good drinks and food. I had their pumpkin beer which was delicious. We also had the sliders and a southwest salad. The food was excellent and service friendly. The only reason I marked it down was because their parking lot is shared with many other... More

My BF and I came here for some drinks and some apps before going elsewhere for dinner. My BF had some wine, but it was nothing special. We had some nachos and salsa, chips were okay, not much to them, not fresh and the salsa tasted like it came out of a jar.

For a moderate sized restaurant, they are incredibly committed to their brewing. There are at least a dozen offerings that are brewed on site - along with lots of other great craft beers to choose from. The service is very attentive, even on a surprisingly busy Tuesday night, and the food is pretty good. Had some honestly great fish and... More

Found this brewery close to my hotel, I am a craft beer fan, and was not familiar with Black Lotus, so went and checked it out on a Friday night about 8PM. Was a short wait for tables, I was solo so took a seat at the bar. A couple of flat screens showing sports. Large chalkboard with all current... More

We sat outside, the server was polite. However, no explanation on why food was so slow. Fries were cold when served. Not a great experience. Will not return.
