We had a yummy dinner. We were well served even with our loud toddler and two grade schoolers. Food was great. Organic IPA was worth buying a growler and the Cider was tasty too!

Our food was just average.... the fish tacos only had one taco and fell apart in my hands but were tasty. my wife's chowder was good and her caesar salad was good. the beer was good.... Vicious brew. Service was good.

Casual atmosphere, outdoor seating available, craft brewery on site. Wide variety of organic craft beers and ales on tap. Order a sampler of 4 to see what you like best, then get the 16 oz pint or 22 oz imperial pint (if you're not driving)....More

With more than triple its original seating and a kitchen that spans the former brewing floor, the Pub offers a robust menu featuring local meat, bread, and produce. And while the Pub's 24 taps of beer and cider can present guests with a daunting selection, our knowledgeable staff will be there to help find the one that's right for you.
