Flavorful and well prepared food in a comfortable environment. Not too noisy like many pubs can be. Service was prompt and attentive. Of course the beers were great. Tasted a four brew sampler. All delicious.

I was in my own personal pub crawl. Glad I made it here. Nice atmosphere only a 0.8 mile walk from pier and great beers. Happy hour 3-5. Overall can’t complain. No wait for seating even with cruise ship in town.

I would! We showed up and there was only 1 ticket left. There are only 2 tours daily, at 10:30am & 3pm. The tour is $10 which includes the sampling of 4 beers, so it pays for itself.
