My husband and I stopped on a whim. The place is small in front with more in the back or outside. Better to make reservations for a large group. We were very pleased with the choices of beer. Our waitperson at the bar, Kyle was very knowledgeable and friendly. We both ordered burgers. I know that it sounds common but... More

I would make reservations as it has limited seating but worth the wait. We had a table of 7 and each one of us raved about the food. The mac and cheese is a highlight. I had french onion soup and it was probably the best I have ever had. The food was reasonably priced and our service was outstanding.... More

Just stopped for some beer so I can't rate the food. Layout is a little strange but that of course has no effect on the great tasting beer.

No atmosphere but food was good and staff friendly and helpful. We (4) ordered burgers, fries, sausage and pastrami sandwiches, (1) cup of basil tomato soup, and (1 order) cheese and crackers for appetizers. Absolutely everything was very good and cooked to order. We ordered two trays of five 5oz beer samplers and enjoyed drinking and learning about each of... More

We asked a local at our hotel where does she eat. She sent us to this place. It sits back from the highway so you may miss it. The service was friendly, professional and fast. We had French Onion Soup and it was very good. Although it was fish fry night, we decided on the burgers. Great choice. We would... More

Great service, steak burgers creatively dressed with thiclk cut bacon, sharp cheddar and green tomatoes caramelized in maple syrup. Just enough roll to handle the contents. Go hungry.

Casual atmosphere that is child friendly with amazing food. The burgers were delicious and the pesto fries were a nice change of pace. The beer flights allowed for a chance to sample everything they had to offer and the servers were attentive and friendly. Great place to visit when in Cooperstown.

Aside from the great IPA, I had an outstanding burger! Btw, the pulled pork sandwich is also off the hook!

Don't skip on this place. Food, brew, & service were excellent. Brie burger was great, & sweet potato fries were candy!

The place is warm and welcoming, the beer brewed in house and the food was tasty. Do not look for great atmosphere. It's a strangely laid out place with the bar and a few tables in the front and a long walk past the kitchen and service areas to arrive at the kinda bland dining room. The full flight of... More
