This is your typical neighborhood bar. They welcome you as a regular, have great beer selection on tap and the food taste home made. There food prices are reasonable and have daily specials.

Menu had a great variety, craft beers on tap - also a decent wine list. We visited the restaurant twice during our stay in Artesia, once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times, very good

Chips and queso was good. Artichoke dip was good. Rueben was good. Cranberry salad was not very good, bitter. The green chili stew was good. Brownie sundae was delicious. Cheesecake was quite tasty.

Food and service very good. Chicken tenders with gravy and sweet potatoes fries were great. Two of our party had house salads and said they were delicious.

If you like meatloaf, this is some of the best. Good service, a little noisy in bar area but not too bad. Enjoy!!!!

Very good food and drink. Only brew pub in Artesia. Oilfield theme decor. I prefer their "roughneck red" beer although the "crude oil" is pretty good too. Wait staff very friendly and helpful with information about local area.

We ate lunch here twice during a business trip. Unfortunately could not sample the micro-brew since we were working! The second lunch I had here was a Caesar salad with salmon. It was a huge piece of salmon - very much worth the price. The place was almost deserted both times we ate there.
