Excellent service, very good yet spicy appetizers. "J" must stand for jalapeno because they use a lot of it!

Eat here after recommended by our motel. Plain and simple, get the brisket tacos. Waiter was really nice. Not bad for the money.

We had good food, good service but the microbrew was below average. I also didn't care for the strong strawberry (?) scent pumped in at the entry. I could smell it even out on the patio. Not good when eating pub food.

Good food, loved the bar-b-q sauce with a little kick. Husband enjoyed the micro brews. Only complaint was the brisket was a little tough.

Ate super there while in Cortez. It is a combination brewery and restaurant. Service was good even though they were quite crowed. Food was reasonable and good- nothing exceptional.

The place was empty so I wasn't sure but the food was great. Hubby thought they had some of the best wings he has ever had. I had the prime rib special and it was good. The kids loved the fries. Our waitress was excellent.
