The beer was delicious but I should have taken heed from the other reviewers that stated what a limited menu that Brewery Vivant has. It is! One in our party is a pescaterian and only had the choice of a fish sandwich. She ate one bite (it tasted too fishy) and the waiter didn't even ask her if there was... More

We stopped by for a few drinks and appetizers. Our server, Chris, was very friendly. He even stopped to chat with us when he was not busy. The food was great and the coffee that we had with desert was excellent.

Don't get me wrong, i like their beer. It is good. However, they just kicked everyone in the bar our during the middle of the top of the 9th inning of a tied game 7 of the World Series... That is absurd and I can't even fathom doing that. It will take a miracle to get me back in that... More

I ordered the steak frites and the sirloin came to me medium rare but the cut was so sinewy and full of white lines of gristle that it was not possible to cut through it; even with the large steak knife. I showed this to the waitperson who witnessed this and the plate was whisked away and a new steak... More

This brewery is very cool as it was a church! The food was excellent and so was the service. A bit pricey but hey, we were there for the beer and food so......

They have a very good hamburger here however I really wish they would offer some good and delicious bar food. I have never had a craving for duck nachos. In fact the idea of it makes me sick. When I've eaten here I am pressed to find anything on the menu that I want to order.

Staff didn't seem to care. After asking our waitress to find out what on the menu is garlic freedueto a sensitivity she returned with: " I think... More

We went to BV to celebrate a birthday. We love BV beers, and of course they were delicious. The inside of the brewery is very cool with the stained glass windows and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. But.... almost everything on the menu contains pork/bacon! I don't eat any pork products and found I had a hard time picking... More

Went on a Saturday night. Close to 10 pm. Got right in and got seated. Being so busy I thought the server wait would be awhile. He was prompt and friendly. We had a dark port ale. And pub pretzel and cheese. The pretzel was huge and hot. I would go here again. Love the unique setting.
