I stopped here with my son on 11/20/16 after an open house at Seton Hall University. Read all the mixed reviews but wanted to try it anyway. Turned out to be a good experience. My son had the chili and a Bison burger. He loved it. I had the Beer Soup which was a new and different taste. Finished with... More

Horrible owner . Will never go back. Too bad, because we liked the food, particularly the shrimp appetizer. Woman owner yelled at me for just looking at my phone.

For a "brewery" the food was really good and there were lots of choices. For a "brewery" the beer selection was OK but the flagship IPA I wanted was not available. To make matters worse, the other 2 IPA's I had were WARM! What a disappointment after a hot day of trekking around to get a warm beer. Service was... More

Came here while exploring South Orange for a little. The food was delicious and the portions were huge. I had the Ante-Gator burger which is enormous and quite tasty. Love that they have their own beers there. Would definitely come back!

There's a front, with a nice bar and metal tables near the big kegs they seat the students, and a back with table cloths. Smoke from the kitchen filled the dr, but the crabby owner (husband's no better) wouldn't sit us near the bar, maybe because I had kids and friends in my party of 5. The waiters are nice... More

Had some great brisket and the chipotle mac and cheese was awesome!! I find many of their menu items just OK but this addition was fantastic. My husband had the fish and chips which was edible but not good. The other person there had a burger which she enjoyed.

Yeah, look, listen, here's the thing, you know? Fantastic layout for the serious diner or the college doofus. You gotta eat! might as well do it here! The mussels with the garlic bread and then waffle fries with the lamb with goat cheese and caramelized onions.

This is a fine local restaurant for burgers and beer. The menu is always quite interesting and aside from the usual burgers, there is the gator burger, and lamb burger with an assortment of toppings. German dishes are always available and the wurst platter with German potato salad and sauerkraut is a winner. If you're not in the mood for... More
