Soft Parade and the Brain beer that tastes like a gin/tonic were right up our wheelhouse! the waiter took the time to help some non beer drinkers find just what we'd like. PLUS the artichoke dip was DELICIOUS!

Got here on a Friday evening, 30-45 minute wait, they got us in in 20 minutes. Excellent food for both vegetarians and carnivores. Really good selection of local craft beers. Casual atmosphere, good for families. Pretty reasonably priced.
