Great beer selection and the kegs are on display. The food is so-so at best and is really best viewed as secondary to the beer selection. Service for the 5 of us one Tuesday evening was apologetic but truly for little reason as our server was efficient and quick. People enjoyed themselves. It was loud with large parties of people...

Tis place has a ton of beers on draft and a cold line. If you are a serious beer drinker you will appreciate this. The food is so-so, and I don't like how the televisions dominate the space, but if you are going to watch a game, I suppose this will not bother you

Very crowded and noisy. Extensive beer menu for the beer lovers. Appetizers are very good for sharing. Food was good but misleading. I ordered the Duck Confit Salad, as an entree, thinking that I was going to get some duck (at least a slice of duck). I was very disappointed. There was barely any duck. I was lucky to find... More

Good service and a wonderful charcuterie board made this a pleasant experience for the mouth. Just wish I'd brought some ear plugs!

We were very disappointed. Went there for dinner and to watch a playoff game. They obviously didn't plan for the crowd they had, as they only had one server and one bartender.

We had left Canada and were headed to NY. A Nor-Easter was in the forecast so we decided to leave early stop close to NY and just stay hoping to miss the storm. We stayed at a horrible hotel ( see my review) and because we were just winging it, I mapped a few restaurants hoping they would be a... More

We ate here on a business meeting between 4 people. The menu is very interesting and has a wide variety of choices to choose from. The standouts at this dinner was the butternut squash soup and the chicken quesadilla, which had a bit of a kick to it. The atmosphere is very interesting and we all inspected the door to... More

I had the burger along with a few beers. The burger was mouth-wateringly delicious as were the beers. We were a large group of approx 25 who all wanted to pay individually. The staff co-ordinated this brilliantly and kept an accurate account of what everyone had. Service was not very fast but this is to be expected for a big... More

My three points were checked off! Ambiance, service & food. All 5 stars. They have a really large bar area & a fire place. The menu is creative & has options for all.
