Nice staff, excellent variety of beers, many made locally. Personal favorite is Scottish Ale. Pizza is usually really good - wood fired oven. Mussel plate is surprisingly good.

By accident my husband and I have started to seek out smallish, local breweries as we travel across country. What fun to find a place such as Thunderhead! Kearney is an unlikely destination (although it is quite a quaint town) but this establishment is not...More

Well it is a bar.....its family friendly on non Husker days but I might be a bit hesitant to bring kids in to watch a game. I'd agree with Dwight.
