Late afternoon beer and appetizer. My friend ordered a wheat beer and I, a gluten free bottled beer. It was actually good. It had a citrus taste. We also ordered their nachos. It was a large order for two. Nice atmosphere and staff friendly. I would come back.

Not really much to say, food and prices are average. Try to use a coupon if you can, to cut the prices down. Ho hum lunches, but close by so I went here.

We were staying at a hotel on the River walk and headed in around 5:30 on a Friday night. We had a 45 minute wait and there was no room in the bar so we grabbed some drinks and drank them in the entry. My hubby loved the dark micro brew and I enjoyed a mojito and a sangria. The... More

Great beer, the bartender was nice and helpful. Once we got to the table it was a wait for everything, we had to get up and ask if we had a server. Drinks took forever to come then the food took even longer. The food was just ok.

My husband was here for a conference, and I took a couple days off work to join him. I LOVED the Hop Bomb IPA! We shared a "2AM Burger" and a "Bacon Chicken Mac and Cheese." Both were delicious. We ate at the bar (full menu), and the servers were very friendly and efficient. We were there on Friday night... More

Very Casual and the service is great. Try the beer sampler if you are a beer lover. Great mixed drinks and wine selection and a... More
