Great food and service. We tried a sample of four beers and they were all very good. Food was awesome. Great place for the whole family, lots of children eating there with their parents. Prices very reasonable too.

Burger was ok-the French Onion Soup-terrible and so over priced !! 2 regular burgers, 2 cups of terrible tasting soup, 2 beers and a macaroni and cheese entrée-$62.00 plus tip -So not worth it!!

We stopped in on a Monday evening for a snack and a beer. We ended up trying a flight of four ales that were all great! Try the Pumpkin Chucker, you'll love it!

I love that their beer menu has good descriptions of what they offer. It's always fun to order a flight and try new beers. The food is always good. We usually order several appetizers and share. The pretzel was absolutely AMAZING!
