Delicious foods - even healthy choices and an extensive beer menu with homemade beers. Good guidance about pairing of food and beer. The menu advertises glutenfree food but I didn't see information about gluten in the beers.

I always try to visit their restaurants when I find a new one. I have always been able to find at least one beer that I want and that was the case here too. Service was fast and friendly as usual.

Had dinner here with business associates before a hockey game. Varied menu with good appetizers and drinks. Service was a little slow but the restaurant was busy. Food was good but not memorable.

Stopped for dinner and it was tasty! Asiago garlic fries were of course amazing. Got sirloin with seasonal veggies and it was all great!

We selected this restaurant for dinner, since it appealed to most members of our group. We were initially amused by the specialty menu they had for the convention in town, but largely, our amusement with the evening ended there. The waiter seemed unfamiliar with their...More

We were there for lunch, so it was quite subdued. I don't know how things are at night, but I would be cautious about excessive noise with a 7 month old.
