Nice setting. Service ok if a little forced. Food was fine, nothing special although the crab cakes were better than we've tried at other places. Standard prices. Can't say much more than that.

They have some good beer but the food is way to fancy for a this place and over priced too. They recently change the prices on stuff which kinda sucks but eh what can you do.

Been there since 2015 and the consistency of the food is very high standards and quality is out standing. Beer brewed on site with different ales and pilsners. Food is quality and portions are generous.

Stopped by here to eat on the last day of our visit, it was pretty good. I have never had a steak cooked in a pan, but it was pretty good. I much prefer a grilled steak though. The creme brulee was perfection.

We found the beers to be quite good, but the deep fried artichoke hearts were a bit greasy and flavorless. Service was friendly, but prices are fairly steep for a brew house.
