We had a nice late lunch on a Tuesday afternoon. The brews were great, and the sandwich and sides were delicious. Good service and atmosphere. We will go again.

This would get 5 stars from me for a place to drink except that the bathroom smells like a urine. It is noticeable from the dining room. Didn't eat but the menu looked good. Love the many beers, just clean the bathroom....More

Went here for lunch while taking our daughter back to school. We had a couple drinks and a couple appetizers. Both were good. The service was adequate. I was also scoping it out for game day. The bar is pretty small.
