The food if very good. The hamburgers are very good and different in a good way from the usual. I tried one beer and did not like it but that is just a personal taste thing.

Basic burger and brew fare. The place is small but we went mid-afternoon and were able to seat six people. I thought it was a little pricey given they didn't even offer homemade fries or chips. Their potato salad and slaw salads were very good...More

Tasted some excellent beer. Especially loved the Sunken Island Scotch Ale and the Cripple Creek Trippel. Didn’t try the food but they had some salads, sandwiches and burgers that looked good. Very friendly wait staff!! 10 beers on tap and growlers available.

The four of us were a mixed group - one person didn't drink alcohol (enjoyed a lemonade instead), two of us had our pre-chosen favorite beers (wheat and brown ale) and one person ordered a flight of five sample beers. We all enjoyed our selections....More

Kids had the baked Mac n Cheese, so delicious! The pesto fries are to die for. The portions are huge and there is something for everyone. Prices for food were reasonable. Sadly, we did not try the beer. Will definitely stop on again.

A friendly atmosphere in a local pub popular with locals and visitors. Brewing a nice selection of beers and homemade fare provided a nice backdrop on a cold, snowy afternoon after a morning at the museum. Just a short 4 mile drive from Cooperstown.
