Stopped in after a long day of travel up from Ohio. Place was very busy for a weekday. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was great, slightly pricey but not bad. Service was friendly. Beers were good! Definitely recommend and will be back!

The food will never disappoint! It's one of the best restaurants in town. Best beer selection by far. Great for families or couples. The menu has something for just about everyone. I love the ever changing Mac & cheese.

I was blown away by the soup I had-an orchard bisque with butternut squash, apples and nutmeg. Yum. The beer sampler was amazing. Our server was so wonderful-very informative. We went back the next day for a brewery tour. Great staff, very knowledgeable.

Really great experience. Apps and pizza are awesome. Homemade sausage on the pizza is a must. Get the sampler of their beer also. You won't be disappointed.

My husband had one of their homemade beers and pizza. The pizza was a thin crust and tasted great. We would highly recommend this place. Rustic inside and lots of seating.
