Great place to grab a beer (really good selection), some appetizers, and hang out with friends. The front is self-serve and the back has a wait staff, but everything was "self-seat" when we were there. Volume was loud (people talking, not music), but that's what I would expect in a bar. Menu selections were interesting/different, we had the garlic fries... More

A bit non descipt from the outside but worth checking out & possibly waiting for a table. The selection of beers can be overwhelming but you're sure to find one to please you.

My family and I stopped in to get burgers. We sat outside and the server was seemingly nice. But when it came to dealing with allergies, he had no idea, so we had to go and talk to the chef to see what I could have. The wings were amazing but the burger was overdone and completely black from char.... More

A favorite, the staff is so friendly and the beer selection is great! Food is good mostly, sometimes greasy and small, not the star of the show. A go to comfy casual place for a beer and a bite.

Fat tire sour apple was my husband's favorite! I don't drink beer, so I appreciated their selection of cocktails. Prices were easily posted for everything. My husband enjoyed the Mac and cheese while I loved the tomato basil and grilled cheese. Good easy listening guitar player on a Wednesday night was nice!

Good selection of local brews that shows off the great beers that Michigan brewers are making. Wish they had more ciders are the menu though.

We always can count on a great tap beer selection and great appetizers. We had Kwak beer on tap in the proper glass! And the date appetizer in bacon is terrific. We enjoy bringing beer lovers here as we always enjoy this wonderful place.
