A great beer selection both rotating draft and bottles - with the caveat that almost all beers on tap are big beers. I would remove 1/2 star for that point because I wish there was more balance in the selection. On the other hand, these people go out of their way to find interesting beers that change frequently, and the... More

We had a party of 4 and got seated quite quickly, as the restaurant wasn't real busy at the time. I ordered a pork sandwich with hot peppers. When the sandwich was served, it was extremely soggy, to the point that it wasn't able to be eaten as a sandwich with your hands. Other than that situation, the service was... More

Excellent pork sandwich for lunch, the draft beers are of course an attraction as well, very reliable food quality, been going there for years.

We didn't try the beers, which I guess is why must people would go here. They have a five+ page menu for beers but not much selection for lunch. The watermelon salad is so overpriced. Tiny portion with a slice of watermelon sprinkled with pistachios, handful of arugula, maybe a tiny bit of fennel. ... for $12! I was hungry... More

Usually we love the food but tonight only the burger and the shrimp special were favorites! Usual chef must be on vacation - REALLY! Cheese plate was 3 of the same cheeses! No variety of texture or flavor! $14 and we were so disappointed since we ALWATS get the cheese plate! We will return - maybe in the late fall!... More

I was visiting this area for the first time and found this place listed with pretty good reviews and right up the road. So, I thought I would give it a try. When I arrived, the bar area was pretty busy and as a single diner, that is usually my first move. However, some high top tables were close by... More

This place is near to some outlets and a Costco, so whenever we shop there, this is their go-to lunch or dinner stop. The beer on tap is always really interesting, and they have lots of beers by the bottle. And the food is real comfort food and also really good. Service has always been good, and they know the...

The food was excellent. I had scallops and they were perfect. Calamari was great. Lemon pie was great although had to convince the waiter the menu said it came with whipped cream, which he begrudgingly put on. That was odd, but he just seemed to be a tad overwhelmed. My business associates were all pleased with selection of beer and... More

A fun place to stop for good food and a large variety of all kinds of beer. Also the selection of cold beer to go.

This is my brother-in-law's favorite watering hole. Unfortunately, for him, he lives in LA. I am not a craft beer fan and prefer lagers like Harp and Stella over wheat beers, IPAs, and triple-hopped bitter brews. It's the food that attracts us most. The chicken tender appetizer with a choice of sauces is amazing and for 8 bucks has often... More
