A really nice brewery with excellent food at reasonable prices. We had the salad with walnuts, cranberries, spinach, etc, topped with grilled shrimp. Delicious. They have quite a few beers. I had the IPA and loved it.

I had finger foods with family at reasonable prices. The building itself has historic value to it. They offer guided brewer tours and tastings, also. Good atmosphere in the downtown area.

They have some unique food combinations. It was very good food and great service. The tables are a little close together though. There was great flavors and fresh tastes.

Your restaurant came up in a gluten free restaurant search. Do you have a dedicated area for gluten free? If not, can you suggest a restaurant that does? My grandson has really bad celiac and it is difficult to eat out. Doing a beach day trip with him and would love to give him a treat by taking him out to eat. Thanks. Thanks, Susan

Susan, we are not going to be your best choice if your grandson has Celiac since we do not have separate food preparation surfaces for folks who have Celiac. Best thing to do is call any restaurant you are interested in and... More
