We absolutely love this place! We love the atmosphere, the food, and especially the beer! They have an awesome beer called Bourbon Beer that is just amazing, must try!! There is outdoor seating with live music often. Beautiful view of the St. Johns River! Also, after eating- it's located on the river walk with beautiful views to walk off a... More

Beautiful evening overlooking the river with the beautiful blue Main Street Bridge in the background. The Drunken Salmon was wonderful. Awesome service.

Surprised they only have 5 craft beers we had chicken tacos and a hamburger that should have been simple food but our dining experience took 2 hours the service is very slow even though the tacos were spot on the rice was under cooked it's a shame because the location and scenery is pretty we just got tired of waiting

Our group enjoyed dinner on the patio. The views of the river and skyline were great. Everyone seemed to really enjoy their meals (the majority ordered the daily catch or seafood risotto). Nice presentation and flavours. Try a beer flight tasting for a variety of what they brew.

This restaurant and brewery is located on the river in downtown Jacksonville. The view, especially at night, is amazing! The food is excellent, the atmosphere is great, we had a blast. Plenty of good beer to choose from also! I would recommend this place to anyone, especially visitors from out of town!

I had made reservations for a group of 15 about a week prior. I liked that they called the day of to confirm our reservation. It was a Monday night and the place was mostly empty when we arrived at 7:30. We only waited a couple of minutes before being seated. A team of waiters introduced themselves and I thought... More

Spent the weekend in Jacksonville and wanted to have a nice dinner with a view so we chose this restaurant and I am so glad we did! It has a beautiful view of the river and the city - just what we were looking for. Our waiter, Al, was one of the best I've ever had. Very friendly and excellent... More

Nice place and very classy on the restaurant side. I thought the food was a little over hyped. I got the shrimp and grits and tried a couple of their homemade brews (the IPA spinoff and another). Honestly, the portions for meals were a little small and unimpressive while the beers lacked depth in flavor that a good beer should... More

Our tour group had lunch here and we were hoping for something light, but ended up with a huge chicken dinner. This is a pub and the food was just so-so.
