The bartender, Maria, will know your name after one visit. About 20 beers on tap. Great menu. Speicals for lunch. Large TV screens. Outdoor covered seating as well. Makes you feel welcome and you'll enjoy yourself for sure.

We love to celebrate our dog's birthday on the patio here with sirloin bites for her and we choose from a wide selection of delicious and reasonably priced entrees and a wide selection of beers (no beers for fido!).

We had enchiladas and a dish of seared ahi fish, both meals were delicious. We then capped it off with a goats cheese and halopeano cheesecake with a berry sauce with a taster of Porter beer, unusual and delicious.

The title sums this place up. I’ve been to brewpubs where the beer tastes like detergent! Not the case here, the pilsner tastes as if it had just come fresh pumped from Bohemia. The Belgian as if it has come from Flanders that very day....More

We stopped in for lunch after a suggestion from a local. We each got a burger and they were both pretty good, nothing that blew us away but a good solid burger. The beer was also good. If you're looking for a seriously spicy beer...More

We were staying at a small hotel about a block away and decided to try the Brewhouse only because we were tired and hungry and it was within walking distance. When we arrived the restaurant was pretty crowded but they were able to seat us...More
