I really enjoyed the beer when I visited here, and I thought the place had a pretty cool arrangement and design. I liked the patio they had there. I didn't get much of a chance to try their food menu, it is a bit expensive....More

Beer was great!! Burger and fries just average. Service was good. Would go back again, but would probably order from the dinner menu after 5.

I visited the pub while they had the Oktober beer on tap and a special menu. When the chef heard that I was German he came to see who that German was. His food did not disappoint me, it was good and I enjoyed it....More
