We had a great experience,we were there for lunch I had the rib sandwich the server recommended the jerk sauce and he was spot on. My wife had the pulled chicken sandwich which he recommended the bourbon sauce again he hit the mark. Stewie did a great job on the service we look forward to going back again.

Visited with friends on a Friday night. The restaurant is bigger than it look on the outside. Entrance area looks more like a bar area, but back space has plenty of restaurant seating. Large menu with choices for everyone. Attentive, friendly service. The high ceilings a large space make for a noisy evening where conversation was difficult. However, food was... More

Fun place for the adults to all go have a few beers and food while bringing the kids along. Great selection of beers from all over. One of the best local bars for a variety of beer. Food is good. Wouldn't say it all is the best but most of the menu is pretty good. Nice place to catch the... More

From the outside, it looks like a strange florida strip mall restaurant, but inside you're transported in to a world of beer and smoked meats. We really enjoyed our food and beer while here. I was SO happy to find a sour ale on tap! Most of my friends had the smoked chicken sandwich or platter. I enjoyed some appetizers-... More

I really like this establishment. Craft beers, friendly bartenders, plenty of sport channels available. Great chicken wings. Get them smoked and fried for ultimate pleasure! Your bar tab can get hefty, quality costs, but the atmosphere and choice is worth it

We had two hours to kill and stopped in for some beer and wings. From the outside you're not expecting what awaits on in the inside. It's a nice looking Tavern with a long bar with many draft and craft beers to select from. You can even choose from a house list of requested beer blends. Their smoked and grilled... More
