Great place to relax in the summer and eat outside. Service is great and you can't beat the hamburgers here. A beer goes great with your lunch. Wonderful atmosphere. They also have great hot wings.

We visited Elm City Brewing company on a snowy night. Even though lots of people were staying home because of the weather, many were at Elm City. That's always a good sign. People are willing to come out in bad weather for good eats. We started with chicken and sausage appetizer that was REALLY good and REALLY filling. Then on... More

By far my favorite restaurant when traveling to Keene. Love the bar area and their beers are all amazing! Potato pancakes are my go to and are perfect with the Raspberry Wheat beer :)

The burgers and onion blooms are yummy, and they have a good variety of beer. The only problem is, the bar is TINY unless you want to sit away from the main area, and it's always full.

Family of 4 visit on 30th December. Very busy but we were well looked after. Great building, excellent food and beer. Will come back - loved the Trivial Pursuit cards on each table... kids put their phones down and we chatted! Miracle at Christmas happened in Keene!

Had a nice Saturday lunch. The Anniversary Ale was tasty. Excellent corn & jalapeño chowder. Followed the soup with an outstanding Turkey melt and sweet potato fries. Their massive beer batter onion rings are too big a dose of frying oil for my taste. Otherwise this is a good place for lunch. Generous portions at reasonable prices. Friendly service. Will... More

This is one of my favorite places to re-charge when Christmas shopping. I don't get to Keene very often, but when I do, Elm City is usually my go-to place for lunch. They have a great selection of beer and good pub food. The deep fried potato skins are excellent, as are the wings. They make a good philly cheese... More

Nachos were nothing to write home about. Atmosphere is nice. Good selection of brews. Good for a drink out but food was "ok".

I grew up in the area and love coming here with friends. Good beer, good atmosphere, and unbelievable wings! They make their own ranch and blue cheese sauce and they're both out of this worldly good. Great spinach and artichoke dip as well.
