Stopped on the way back from dinner to have a drink. My dining partner chose from the beer menu, I had the only cabernet sauvignon on the wine list (Warwick), which was a nice medium-bodied wine. It was very crowded on the Saturday night that...More

Stopped here for lunch, took a quick shot downstairs in the awesome bar during our wait. Food was amazing got the pulled pork sandwich and the lamb gyro. They only sell the beer they make in the brewery, tried a cucumber one it was delish!

Have walked by a few times and finally went in for lunch. Nice atmosphere and attentive service. We shared the nachos with pulled pork that were delicious. It is plenty for 2-3 people. We also shared the chicken wings also very good. Not too noisy...More

Was spending the night on a business trip, and went for dinner on my own. Great beer selection, and the mussels were amazing. Together with some asagio fries and a beer, ended up having a great dinner. Totally recomendable!

Fries, mussels and beer - my favorite, too! Thanks for stopping in and thanks for sharing your review. Please visit us again next time you pass through town!

This place is wonderful when it comes to their craft beers and delicious food. Everything is reasonably priced and splitting appetizers with a group of friends is always the way to go. Would continue to come back!

Good afternoon (sorry for the tardy reply). Yes, we do have a small patio, but, alas, we can not allow pets there as it is only accessible from inside the building.
