Decent food and a nice selection of craft beers. Crowded and noisy but it was possible to hold a conversation without shouting. Service was good. Have had lots better fish and chips though.

The atmonsphere is pretty nice, but I don't have experience with US restaurants. I've had some really good IPA's , the food seemed average and the service was on par with the other places I've been.

I tried their calamari and mango shrimp tacos. Pretty good. They also have a good selection of wines, and of course, beers.

The food was ok, but the service was really average, the staff seem a little disengaged. The beer was pretty good, probably the only reason worth visiting

Don't be fooled by the menu. We ordered everything from the calamari appetizer to the turkey club. Probably would still be there if we didn't physically have to get up and track down our waitress after waiting for our first beer and then food. When we were ready to check out the waitress grabbed our bill, but forgot to process... More

The food was not good and the service was very slow. The waiter came by fairly quickly after we sat down but it took a really long time to deliver our drink order and quite a bit longer after that to get our food. Only then when he brought our food did he tell us that one of the things... More

Went to enjoy some of the beers in the menu only to find out many weren't available. Apparently out of season. Food was very good, service excellent. Central location and reasonably priced.

Why do restaurants advertise that they do banquets, but deliver 20 dinners one by one over thirty minutes? The easiest one, soup, came out last. The food quality is average for brew pubs - much better is out there for sure.
