We visited with family and friends a party of seven. Seated quickly. Service was very good. The beer list was very impressive. Lots of excellent micro beer choices. I had the Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteak, which was amazing.

There is an overwhelmingly large selection of beers--foreign, domestic, and craft-brewed. The prices are a bit high, but you can't beat the selection. I had a flat iron steak with bourbon sauce, and it was absolutely delicious. The portion size was not huge, but the...More
