Good beer and drinks for all. However, was disappointed at the menu when they openly stating beef feedyards are bad. It's cool to support the grass-fed beef but don't dis on the grain-fed operations. Average service.

Avoid Bittercreek Alehouse unless you want your medium cheeseburger to arrive completely frozen with cold soggy cloggy fries. Unless you want your set table to still have tons of debris left over from the previous diners. Even after talking to the chef/manager, I continued to...More

Hapgator, First, please accept our apology. We work incredibly hard at our hospitality, aiming to knock it out of the park every time. To hear that we bungled your visit so badly is not acceptable and we are truly sorry. Thank you also for taking...More
