They have good house brews and a nice mix of unique micro brews. Good bar "scene" with local color in and out. Not fancy not stuffy great spot for a couple beers and basic greasy fries nachos but above all others try their anti-gator burger with mixed exotic meats formed by a local butcher. Their smoked meats and sausage are... More

It's a great place to get food in town. Yup I'm a local and I come here enough to enjoy everything they have to offer. Don't believe the other reviews since everyone is treated fairly.

The German food is a nice alternative to the usual pub grub. Interesting specials. The wait staff is not always attentive.

I used to come here all the time, The menu has changed somewhat and I miss the fried oysters - they were unbelievable - don't know why they were taken off the menu. Very good food, excellent salads, nice sized portions (I always take some home), there is a pub area and a dining area. Parking is in the back... More

I stopped here with my son on 11/20/16 after an open house at Seton Hall University. Read all the mixed reviews but wanted to try it anyway. Turned out to be a good experience. My son had the chili and a Bison burger. He loved it. I had the Beer Soup which was a new and different taste. Finished with... More

Horrible owner . Will never go back. Too bad, because we liked the food, particularly the shrimp appetizer. Woman owner yelled at me for just looking at my phone.

For a "brewery" the food was really good and there were lots of choices. For a "brewery" the beer selection was OK but the flagship IPA I wanted was not available. To make matters worse, the other 2 IPA's I had were WARM! What a disappointment after a hot day of trekking around to get a warm beer. Service was... More

Came here while exploring South Orange for a little. The food was delicious and the portions were huge. I had the Ante-Gator burger which is enormous and quite tasty. Love that they have their own beers there. Would definitely come back!

There's a front, with a nice bar and metal tables near the big kegs they seat the students, and a back with table cloths. Smoke from the kitchen filled the dr, but the crabby owner (husband's no better) wouldn't sit us near the bar, maybe because I had kids and friends in my party of 5. The waiters are nice... More
