We visited this brewery as we cut across Indiana from Chicago on our way to the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. The first thing we noticed when pulling into the parking lot was the smell of the wort from a new batch being readied. The smell seemed to blanket the whole neighborhood and to some it may have seemed overwhelming. But not to us. It was an appropriate greeting after a 150 mile drive from Chicago. We tried a sampler and enjoyed each beer. The bartender looked like a offensive tackle for an NFL team. In fact, he looked bigger. I later heard he was competing in the World's Strongest Man contest. He was very cool (thank God). The place has a nice friendly atmosphere and brews good beer. Fort Wayne has a nice brewpub in Mad Anthony. (754 characters)

One of my favorite local places. The beers are mostly solid, with a standout great beer every once and a while. The 2015 Anniversary Ale blew me away This year, they went from 8 or so taps up to 20, all house brews. The service is hit and miss, but the food is always on point. The beers are a little expensive for what they are, but overall I love this place and will keep coming back. (386 characters)

On a recent business trip, I thought that I would drop by for dinner. Located near an industrial area, the place has an authenticity and neighborhood feel that is comforting. Part workingmans bar, part college watering hole, and part pizza and sandwich shop, it is notably low key. Worn and comfortable. The food was forgettable...the beer, however, was solid. The IPA and porter were fresh, clean, and tasty. Prices are very reasonable, and the service was average. (470 characters)

There are so many craft beers available from nearby breweries that blow theirs away! Not impressed with any of their selections. Always the same selections. Nothing unique. Don't execute a menu that has too many choices. Unimpressed. The place needs a deep cleaning. (268 characters)

Stop #418 on my world brewery tour.

Sunday night near close. One bartender and a bit slow at first until the small crowd thinned a bit.

I did a flight of all beers which were good to very good. I recall the Mai Bock standing out as being very well done. I had the wings which were good but never spicy enough for my liking.

Would certainly stop back in next time I'm "in the Fort." (387 characters)

i go here a lot...I have the growler... I go for open mic night... etc.

this place has a great hippy pub feel.

the wait staff is amazing. these people do an incredible job, even when they are slammed

the beers are ... alright. I've had maybe 12 of their styles. none have ever been outstanding

they have 8 or more home made brews on tap. that's REALLY good for this town.

the food is fine. doesn't compare to granite city... not even in the same league as JK Odonells it's better than B'dubs or Applebees. the fried foods are hot and crispy, the burgers have plenty of meat, the pizzas have a nice crust (but take 35 minutes).

i keep coming back ... for the service and the atmosphere. and it's local. the food is always forgettable, but i'm never left hungry. the beers are always good and made on sight... my favorite of their beer is the winter Ale and the stout. (873 characters)

Mad Anthony was a place I went to growing up when I couldn't drink yet but it had good enough memories for me to want to go back a few times and it's a good experience. The beer is all better than average but not stellar, still pretty good overall. The real fun is the look from the time you come in from the street and see the big barrel over the door until you sit down. It's a pretty cool place overall. The food is pretty expensive but also tasty. The beer prices are good so it evens out. I prefer the pizzas but the sandwiches and everything else are good too. Service has never been bad. It'as not the fastest but it's always good. (638 characters)

Nice little home town brew pub restaurant. Price was reasonable and food was very good. I would return for the food, but some of the original brews were not too impressive. Service was on par, not outstanding, but good. I felt good about leaving a tip. (252 characters)

I would rate this between the one dollar sign and two. I missed out on octoberfest by one day. But my friend got the raspberry wheat which I tried and thought it was good, i have had the blueberry wheat and they were about the same. I got a cask conditioned ipa and thought it was fantastic. I also got a bourbon barrel aged stout. It was chocolately and was like sippin red stag(aged in red stag bourbon barrells) The beer selection there is ten times better than their bottles, if you visit fort wayne don't but the bottled stuff get a growler or a pint of something that's not bottled because that is the stuff that's good from these guys.

The food was great I had a pizza and it was somewhat expensive 15 bucks which me and the wife split, great pizza though. they have cheap sammies and everything inbetween.

Atmosphere, mad anthony decorates their bars like hippie joints, so if you're into that decor it's your style. the location for this place probably keeps it from being a big time thing in fort wayne. that takes away from the atmosphere for me.

Service was good and i felt i had a quality experience. will go back but it's only a matter of when as it's in a terrible location. (1,193 characters)
