Two years ago we started a little tradition of eating lunch here a few times a month. It has become our favorite lunch spot in Montgomery, mostly because of the staff and the beer. The menu is pretty basic - primarily sandwiches (which are excellent, but I don't like sandwiches in general), gourmet hotdogs, and flatbreads. They have some yummy... More

Such a great way to unwind after the week. Sit outside, enjoy the drafts, flatbread, trio of dips. Service is excellent. I love the relaxed atmosphere and though I have sat inside a few times, nothing beats the spring afternoon weather and a local spot to enjoy a draft (even if it is cider). My go to for an early...

My husband and I took the kids here for some outdoor fun and post-week relaxation. This place definitely doesn't disappoint in that regard, however, the food is not great for those with special dietary considerations or a discerning palate. I wouldn't really categorize the menu as passable pub food and the servers do not know the difference between American and... More

I have been here a couple times now and each time has been a wonderful experience. The beer list is fantastic and so is the food. The service is always pleasant (if sometimes a touch slow). It's a bit lively, but that's what I love about it.

Went there with three adults and 2 kids. Sat inside because of the Alabama heat. Limited seating inside if you want a lower table for your kids. They have a few high top tables as well for adults. Menu is kind of limited but the food is really good and so is the beer list. Recommend if you take kids... More

Bottom line: parents, if you're looking for a place to grab a beer while the kids run their batteries down, this is your heaven! ACSC/SAASS/AWC students, have your first class mixer here! Good selection of beer, the food is a decent, but mostly southern, fare. The entire outdoor area has a waist high fence and a huge grassy mound. You... More

Although this is a full bar with a massive selection of beer it is family friendly. They have food that is very tasty and some desserts and drinks that can be enjoyed by those under age. The picnic tables outside are nice as well. If your looking for a place to wind down and just enjoy a good drink this... More

We sat outside and instantly our kids made friends with other diners children. They began running and playing while we enjoyed amazing pimento cheese and cocktails. where else can you find a dog and kid friendly restaurant in a laid back location and great price point and staff.

I moved to Montgomery 2 years ago for grad school, and the tipping point quickly became my favorite place to sit outside and have drinks, dinner, etc. with friends after a long week! It is hard to find a local spot in this town that isn't a chain, which is why we love it so much! Always a huge beer... More

I liked the atmosphere here - not stuffy and not crowded. It kind of matched the food. They give you just about the right amount and try to keep it light. Mixed with their beer, you feel much better about yourself! Their beer selection is good and their menu items are quite unique. There is plenty of space outside -... More
