Great atmosphere great food and hometown beer brewing at its finest! The pizza is always great, our favorite is pepperoni, but there are other options as well. and if you don't like pizza they have other items as well on their menus from sandwiches, to salads and desserts.

Great atmosphere, great food, great beer! Great selection of in-house brewed beer. Redbird Ale is one of the oldest brewed beers in Ohio. You gotta try it!

This place should be a prime place to eat and drink in Portsmouth. It has an incredible amount of potential. But the service is frankly bad. It always takes forever to be seated and to get the initial drink order taken. To top it off, bartenders and waitresses tend to wander off for extended periods of time throughout the dining... More

Pizza is top notch. Wings are excellent. I have not had a bad meal here. Past few times they were out of Red Bird? WTH they make it there?

Theirs nothing like having a great tasting pizza from the brewery along with one of their pilsners. The brewery has a great local history all its own. The staff are friendly and helpful and if you dont want to sit inside sit out in their beautiful beer garden

My husband and I have been going here for a while. Portsmouth oldest brewery. My husband says the beer isn't very good but he loves their wings. I personally love the Loaded pub fries... and I don't know what it is about the runny ranch dressing but I just love it.... dip chicken or fries. It is a little crowded.... More

Nice little brewery near the Ohio River in Portsmouth. Excellent craft beers and great bar food. We had wings, onion rings and beer battered mushrooms; all were super tasty. Rumor has it from the locs that the pizza is awesome as well. Worth stopping in for lunch after searching up the antique shops right down the street!

This craft brewery and eatery is located near the end of revitalized Second Street in Portsmouth, Ohio. We stopped by on a recent day during the River Days Festival. The décor in the restaurant area was cozy…mostly country charm. My husband enjoyed a Vulcan Dark Lager and I liked the Peerless Pale Ale, both on tap. This was a nice... More
