We ate lunch there while in the area. Friendly staff, good food, and a great selection of brews. My wife loved the lentil salad with shrimp, and the pulled pork sandwich was also very good. Good fries too. Better than your average brew pub.

I was here in mid January with a couple of my former students for lunch. The food was excellent and the beers cold and a great variety also. They did not rush you as we were catching up on old times and just wanted to...More

For me this place is good value for money and always consistent It is child friendly and has a children's menu. I don't drink beer but am told by my fellow dinners that it is excellent.
