Visited here for lunch a couple months ago. Was familiar with their beers beforehand so I thought I would give it a try.
Atmosphere was nice, had the renovated warehouse type vibe working, as many restaurants and brewpubs seem to now a days. It didn't come across as forced, to me anyway, even if not particularly creative.
Waitstaff was very attentive and helpful, though part of that might have been the fact that were were one of only about three couples in the entire place at the time.
Beer was generally of good quality. The porter, elcipse stout, and double ipa stood out in particularly for me. The Salem Gold and Pilsner were not particularly pleasant though, but seeing as how i had only gotten sampler glasses of them, it wasn't that big of a deal. Was a little dissapointed though that they only had 6 of their beers on tap, and no specialties/seasonals on tap (i was hoping to at least get something I couldn't get from tylers back in the triangle)
I found the food to be very enjoyable, somewhere between typical brewpub fare and an actual restaurant menu. I had the bison burger myself (very good) and will try the ostrich burger on my next visit. My wife ordered a personal pizza, which was better than many places i've been to where pizza was the supposed specialty.
Overall a very pleasant experience, though I imagine going back at night or when crowded would change it a good bit. Given its location, I would guess it probably gets a good crowd at times.

Always great beer and the food is mediocre. Although the food has gotten better over the years. Always a big tap list including Jade and a great mix of seasonals. The events/beer releases are always memorable here and very well done. Hats off to the staff for perfecting it and always looking out for the customer. Cheers to Foothills!
