We had a party of 18 people, which they had to combine multiple tables to seat our party. The server was very good and attentive about ensuring she got everyone's order correctly. Food took a little while to come out but I'm attributing that to our table size. Overall, a good place to go out to eat with small groups... More

Darn they said we would have a 45 minute wait so we sat in the bar ....good choice. Not only was the food perfect but we had the best waiter we could image. Perfect evening out for our little 3 generation family.

This place looks like it would be a good time but..... The servers are a bit neglectful, the food is just a shade above mediocre, the servers are neglectful (yes, I said it twice), and the noise level in the restaurant is excruciating. There's noise when people are having fun, then there's bad acoustics. Been here, done it. Finito. A... More

I will start with a stipulation - the food is outstanding - always is. The one star is for the horrific service. We went for lunch today at 11:30 to beat the crowd. Most seats and booths were empty but we waited 10 minutes to be seated. It was another 10 minutes waiting for the server. We each ordered a... More

Really good food and fast, friendly service. The menu is HUGE, so it's difficult to choose when you're really hungry. Highly recommended!

Just had the food delivered. They delivered on time, and the food was great. That is often not the case when you have it as take out. They also have quick pickup if you order ahead. Lots of ample free parking. The staff is always friendly. Wide selection with healthy options.

The only times I dine here is when I'm invited to a gathering or party. The atmosphere is what one would expect from a sports bar brewhouse. There are tables away from the chaos where there is less pressure to demonstrate how much fun is being had by all. The burgers are satisfactory. Appetizers and 'bar food' are tasty. While... More

Had lunch here after a visit to my Doctor. As usual I eat at the bar when I can. I was seated right in front of the draft station and noticed a Brewhouse Brand called Jeremiah Red. I asked for it, and Mathew the bartender, asked if I had ever had it before. A negative response prompted him to pour... More

This is a fun, but loud place to go. It has a very large menu, there's always something I like. It's a good place to have a beer too

Has a great selection of food and their beer is great! Parking is hard to find so it is easier to park down by Target.
