Good location in an old, refurbished brewery with a wide range of tasty, self-brewed beers served by a very friendly service.

We stopped in before our brewery tour and the service was friendly and quick. I had the coconut shrimp and Caesar salad. My husband had the chicken on a bun. Both were very good. Highly recommend!

We stopped here after the Alexander Keith Brewery tour, so I was already in a good mood. This place just kept it going! I love steak and eggs and theirs did not disappoint! Wonderful service, too! My husband had a burger and was pleased, too!

Didn’t eat, just tested some of Alexander Keith’s excellent beers. Tried the taster pack, tried other beers, would have tried some more given more time. Didn’t do the brewery tour. Just checked out the product in its home court. If you stay here long enough...More
