Went there with a bunch of colleagues for dinner. A lot of options both regards to drinks and food. Great service through the whole stay. We loved the wine and beer selection. Food was great. We will be back.

Great food, fabulous beer, friendly service, and all for an amazingly affordable price. Be warned - the pretzels are huge and the dip is to die for!

Even though this is a chain, the staff was welcoming and the bartender friendly. We just had beers and apps at the bar, but service was good and quick. Beer flights are reasonably priced. Nice selection of in house beers and some interesting appetizers.
