I stopped by Defiant the other night to try some beers and I wasn't disappointed. The bar has expanded since my last visit and the beer is just as I remembered. I stayed for a few beers and had some great conversation with the friendly bartender, they have a great selection of inventive beers I would highly recommend Defiant for... More

We went to Defiant last month and loved it. The food took a long, long time but it was worth the wait. We then decided to do my husbands birthday there this past weekend. We met about 26 friends at Defiant Friday night and all we got was disappointment. I checked their website early that day and no where did... More

Five of us came in for a few beers. We all had the IPAs and loved both of them. I highly recommend coming in if you are in the area. You can also purchase beer to take home, t shirt and glasses. We did all three and will stop by next time we are in the area. It was busy... More

Defiant is a family oriented Irish style restaurant and pub that brews a vast selection of exotic beers. Griffin the bartender and Jenny the manager were incredibly helpful in walking me through the beer menu. We had a blast!

Went on a Sunday around 5pm. Sat at a long table with other people already there. No one came to take our order. We politely caught the attention of a waiter and told him we'd like to order. He said 'when I get to you' and walked away. The couple on our right said ' that'll cost you an hour'... More

The beer was warm, the food was cold and I feel that I wasted my money and time. Some of you may like it. Not me. Very disappointing visit.

Was there on October 7th for a rehearearsal dinner. It was my first visit there and it was great! The food was the best barbecue smokehouse I've been to in awhile! Loved the selections offered. Would highly recommend this place!

I had never even heard of Defiant Brewery until one of my boyfriend's friends decided to have his birthday there one Sunday night (the night that the Giants lost embarrassingly to the Packers). I don't know if they have any brewery tours there, which is what I would normally be interested in, but I spoke to one of the employees... More

I went here with my boyfriend hoping for excellent BBQ and beer. The Beer was good! Just odd that they don't sell flights of beer..... The BBQ was a different story. We ordered a sampler and the only decent BBQ was the chicken and pulled pork. It was very expensive as well. The ribs were gross! Tons of fat you... More
