We visit the Downtown Grill very frequently and we love the food, the home brew and the atmosphere . There is a wide selection of foods to please everyone. There are plenty of historical stories posted upstairs to read and the bar is beautiful.

I love the Brewery. My friends and I often find our way to the patio here any time we just want to hang out. The chips and queso, Philly Cheesesteak pizza, and their blond beer are all wonderful.

Hopping place that's clearly popular with locals and tourists. Huge varied menu should give you plenty of options...but as is often the case, my dining partner's fettuccine was just average and the bleu cheese coleslaw side a disappointment. But the shrimp were delicious and a...More
