We enjoyed our meal but the parking STINKS! We got burgers and chicken sandwiches. Would recommend the food.

but they did well non the less. Beer (cherry al) and wings were fantastic. My wife ordered and enjoyed her baked mac and cheese. The environment was a bit hectic (mid afternoon rush)...but there was enough staff members who had it together (able to handle the stress) to provide solid service.

This is a great microbrewery that has good food and beer selections. There are many food options, wings are a tasty selection. There are many quality beers and service I've experienced has been good. Prices are very fair and reasonable too.

Off to a rocky start as we did not see a server for about 5 min. Finally a manager came by and we received great service afterward. I'm told by someone on our party that their bacon sauce on the smothered burger was "dank". The pork nachos and duck tacos were also a hit.

The inside of this old building provides for a great atmosphere. The menu offers a wide variety of options, and very good locally brewed beer. The only thing that kept me from rating this higher was the service was slower than expected.

Stopped in for a late lunch on Friday of Thanksgiving weekend. I had several issues with my visit though if I was in the area again, I might consider going back. I did like the decor. Wood booths down the west wall with a large bar opposite. The space in between filled with high-tops and tables in the front. While... More

Doesn't get any better than this place! Oldest brew pub in the state of Iowa, and one of the earliest craft breweries in the country! Good food, great beers and excellent service! Will definitely be back again and again and again...

Charming atmosphere at the riverfront in an old building. We were immediately offered a drink menu and told the specials. The waitress was knowledgeable about the food and the beer . Cheddar ale soup was superb.we had to fish and chips which was really fresh delicious fish and the pork chipotle chili. Would do this anytime I'm in Devonport.

We ordered the pretzel and artichoke dip appetizers and both were very good. Loved how many dips came with the pretzel!
