I have visited this place a few times in the past, but most recently went for dinner on a Saturday evening with my husband and my two kids ages 8 and 4. The place is relatively kid friendly, we sat outside, ordered pizza, and got the kids a milkshake for dessert. They don't have a special kids menu though.

The beer selection is good, I had a blueberry beer and it actually had blueberries in it. It was excellent!

We had pizza, which was delicious, and the drumsticks with bbq and bleu cheese sauces, also delicious. They do charge 50 cents for each sauce though, and don't include any for the price of the drumsticks. I thought this was a little odd.

Overall, I really like this place. The food is good, I can bring the kids, the beer excellent, and the view is amazing.

The facility sits in an elevated location with ample parking, and an excellent view of the east side of Seneca Lake. The building is new with about half of the inside taken up by the brewery and the serving counter. There is inside and outside seating and in decent weather there are glass garage doors that are opened to the outside. The seating is 'general admission' and can be difficult to find a spot. The counter is a large semi circle with multiple point of sale stations for ordering, the system is fully computerized with the beer menus on the walls behind the counter displaying the current beer selections, the particulars about the beer, the sizes and prices as well as the current amount remaining in the keg. The selections is impressive, also impressive are the prices. The beer is outstanding, but be prepared to dig deep in your wallet to cover a round. They also have a food menu that you order at the counter. We didn't have full meal, but ordered some appetizers to enjoy with our beer. Overall, an excellent experience.

We stopped in for lunch on a Tuesday and we were so glad that we did. We had the pesto pizza and some tacos for taco Tuesday. It is not easy to pass up tacos on taco Tuesdays ever. We loved the tacos and the pizza and were happy with our choices.

We enjoyed all 6 beers that we tasted but I had the Kolsch and my fiance had the Blueberry wheat with lunch. It was a drier fruit beer as opposed to overly fruity. We only had one beer each and it was not easy choosing them. It was 90 degrees outside so we went with refreshing and we were pleased. We will head here again if we are in the area. Great views and staff.
