As for the beer selection, very good for the area and I enjoyed a couple porters. The food was basic pub food. I ordered the seafood platter. Every thing was over fried. The chili side was very flavorful. I don't think I'd go back unless it was for the beer.

My wife and I decided to stop here to grab a bite and a few beers. Was not very busy so we had a few beers and an appetizer before we ordered dinner. We ordered a salad and a club sandwich and waited. After 30 minutes, with others getting served before us, we decided to leave. The waitress said the... More

Exactly the kind of place you'd go if you could....skip the chain bars and pubs! Drink local! It's important to support these small businesses!

As far as generous variety of beers goes, this place is great but it is very small, not enough room to breathe and uncomfortable if more than a dozen people are there. The food is good, service not great, price too high, didn't go back as I can probably get a good beer and meal for less elsewhere with more... More

My wife and I stopped by recently to have a beer and ended up eating there as well. Food was good, as we had fried mushrooms and bacon and cheese fries. Nice variety of different types of beers and the bar tender was always available for questions. If you are looking for a nice place to relax with friends or... More

I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. We stopped in on empty bellies and completely "hangry" for some sliders and a beer. Service was fast and up to par. You could tell it was an old Pizza Hut but they have done a nice job making it a tap house. TV's everywhere and lots of great brew... More

Great beer menu, constantly updating with new choices. Lot's of TVs to catch the game. Food is nothing to brag about.

Overcooked my burgers TWICE, even after being very specific that I wanted them medium rare, they came out well done. So zero stars there. Caesar salad decent, in spite of them putting red onion in it?? Beer selection very good. Average dinner with two beers ran $28. Very spendy really for what you get. Go to the Texas Roadhouse and...

Was over in Richland for an appointment today and dropped in for lunch. First thing I noticed was a new menu--nicely done with some new items on it. The waitress there, I believe her name is Brandi, is very nice and helpful. I had a craving for bacon and decided on some Bacon, Mac & Cheese. Had a nice size... More

I read the reviews and was encouraged to go and check it out. Several commented on the lousy service so I sat at the bar. The beer selection is really good. The beer menu gets into arcane specs of each. There were several regulars sitting next to me and they made me feel welcome. The bar tender had to cover... More
