We love brewhouses and stop in all over the country as they are usually unique and excellent. We had lunch on a Saturday at about 1:30, the bar was nearly empty and the tables were not that busy. We ordered chili and a grilled chicken...More

GPS has a hard time spotting this location from the address - it's actually on the Main St side of the curved, ornate, evidently old post office building on the corner. The entrance hall was a little trashy/dirty. The kitchen door open to view was...More

This place is a little tired looking - one booth even has a seat that is leaning quite a bit. Large place with some side rooms. Can be noisy. Service can be slow when the side rooms are active. Food is acceptable, but not memorable,...More

The beer is decent and the menu provides everything you'd want and more at a pub. Good service and clearly a hangout. The food is good and a great value.

Waited forever for our food! Others that came in after were being served. Crab cakes were outstanding! Coconut encrusted wrap was very good but like I said be prepared to wait. Dark inside so bring a lantern.
